Is there a way to press PS4 touchpad's sides?

Post by nuriho » Wed Sep 12, 2018 10:24 pm

For the PS4 version of Star Ocean: Till The End Of Time, the Select and Start buttons are pressing the left and right side of the touchpad. I figured out that the touchpad is abs_axis_17, but I haven't been able to figure out how to press a certain side. Just pressing it on its own shows that it's been pressed in the logs, but gives the same results as if it was pressed in the center for the game (no action).

Is there a way to press the sides of the touchpad?

GIMX 7.8/EMUPS4PAIRING/not sure of the hex
the gaming target: PS4
the game: Star Ocean: Till The End Of Time
the controller: keyboard

The configuration I've been trying includes:

Code: Select all

<button id="abs_axis_17" Label="touchpad" >
<device type="button" id="1"/>
</button>
<axis id="rel_axis_4-" label="finger 1 left side">
<device type="keyboard" id="0" name=""/>
<event type="button" id="2"/>
</axis>
<axis id="rel_axis_4+" label="finger 1 right side">
<device type="keyboard" id="0" name=""/>
<event type="button" id="3"/>
</axis>
If I hold down 1 and 2, I was hoping that would mean i press down on the touchpad on the left side. The gimx console says finger1 x (-960), touchpad (255) when i press them together, but I guess that just means it's touching the pad there, and not pressing?

Of course mate, for example: T is the left touchpad click and Y is the right touchpad click, then you need to bind keys:
- T is touchpad, Y is touchpad.
- T is finger1, Y is finger 1.
- T is finger 1 x- (left side), Y is finger 1 x+ (right side).
(ignore any warning messages)

So in edit config:
Tab Button:

Tab Axis:

Yeah, because it has left, right, and front area that is sensitive to press...

Just bind key to touchpad, it's simple :)
About left, right touchpad click, do as what I said above.
