Change controller with X/Y Axes D-Pad to Button D-Pad?

Post by onetymeohnly » Sun Apr 15, 2018 5:35 pm

GIMX adapter:
DIY CP2102 Teensy 2.0
5.8/EMUG29/atmega32u4.hex)
the gaming target: PS4
the game: Any racing game
the controller: namco negcon+ps2 to ps3 adapter

Hi! My problem is when using this controller it has a weird behavior that I would like to know if I can fix.

Image
This is how the joystick panel looks when everything is neutral

Image
When the "II" button is pressed, it is an analog button

Image
When L button is pressed, also analog

Now this is where I have a problem.

Image
D-Pad up

Image
D-Pad down

Image
D-Pad left

Image
D-Pad right

The D-Pad is also along the X/Y Axis. As such I can't bind them using Button events and binding them to something affects the L and "II" analog buttons. I just want them to function as normal D-Pad digital buttons. Does anyone know if I can do this?

I think there's your issue. This adapter may translate d-pad digital buttons into left analog axis and you aren't alone with that problem. I checked the internet and there are several threads with same issue as you described, for example here - http://pinnaclegameprofiler.com/forum/s ... -same-axis

Did you try to calibrate using game controller funtion?

Yeah. Whatever I set to L and "II" would appear when I pressed the D-Pad as well

I don't think it can be set in configuration as hardware connector is mapping this before it even gets to the computer.
