Map digital buttons (dpad/keyboard) to analog
« on: March 11, 2020, 01:21:22 AM »
Hi friends & fans of FBN,
We now have a nice way for mapping digital buttons to analog inputs.
In the input editor whilst mapping an analog input, there is a new checkbox:
[ x ] Map Digital

Checking this box allows you to map 2 buttons, as well as a simulated analog "response time" slider (labled "Speed:")

Tip: Lower Speed slider (or default) for steering-games, Higher speed for fast response like Arkanoid, Lightgun games, etc.

Some examples of use:
One can map the left/right keys to play Arkanoid via keyboard
... Play lightgun games like BeastBusters with the D-Pad on a gamepad (one which doesn't have an analog stick, for example)
Play Afterburner II, Hang-On, Enduro Racer with D-Pad
Or play some car racing game which only has analog inputs for steering (F.ex Power Drift, Cheqered Flag), and maybe you only have a D-pad or keyboard..

Grab the latest exe if you'd like to give it a try!

Special thanks:

best regards,
