To configure pico-8 for it, I did : launch Gamepad Tool &gt; Copy Mapping String &gt; append string to sdl_controllers.txt &gt; relaunch pico-8. This works well.</p> <p>Now, I would like to use the controller's shoulder buttons as replacements for the d-pad's dpleft (btn 0) and dpright (btn 1), respectively. Can this be done at all? Note that this is not for exported (to html) games but rather to those launched from the pico-8 console.</p> <p>EDIT:<br /> To be clear, I'd like to control a pico-8 game using a gamepad's shoulder buttons.</p> <p>EDIT2:<br /> GamepadTool mapping string, as entered in sdl_controllers.txt is this:<br /> <span style=" display:inline-block; background-color:#eee; padding:2px; margin: 4px; padding-left: 8px; padding-right: 8px; color:#222">03000000bd12000015d0000000010000,Tomee SNES USB Controller,a:b2,b:b1,back:b8,dpdown:+a1,dpleft:-a0,dpright:+a0,dpup:-a1,leftshoulder:b4,rightshoulder:b5,start:b9,x:b3,y:b0,platform:Mac OS X,</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=36374 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=36374 Thu, 26 Dec 2019 02:50:33 UTC Jammerboard (TweetTweetJam3) <p>Here's my 558-char TweetTweetJam3 entry, including memory poked sfx (thanks to <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=10210"> @eruonna</a> for documenting that). <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=0#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_jammerboard-1.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=0#p"> jammerboard</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=10816"> alexr</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=0#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=35946 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=35946 Sun, 17 Nov 2019 11:40:21 UTC How to poke memory to create an sfx? <p>How do I create a middle c note in sfx 0 programmatically?
