About the X and Y buttons...
« on: February 11, 2013, 11:39:07 pm »
Comparing to A320, the X and Y buttons are swapped.
I want to know if the Keycodes are also swapped, or just the labels?

Oh dog... I never noticed they were swapped! This is going to be harder than switching from SNES to Xbox (I have about a 60% success chance when an Xbox game tells me to press a new face button these days ;))

I know it's a simple thing, but it really irks me. Was there any design rationale behind swapping those buttons? I can't imagine why anyone would switch up the buttons and add confusion just for shits and giggles.

The regular snes-like button layout is patented.

Is the Dreamcast/Xbox/Xbox360/Logitech/WhateverElse button layout pattented?
Everything that is not a chinese handheld seems to be using that layout...

They might also be paying royalties

This is ultra upsetting to hear. :'( Boy, these patent laws sure can be a royal pane in the glass!
