No, it is not ideal. You can not remap L1, R1, or A. Still, it is something that makes this 1 homebrew game more playable.

It would also be nice to remap Select and Start for non-emulator specific functions.

I know we need to have access to the keyboard and the emulator settings, but it seems that we could utilize the Power/Lock slider for accessing the emulator settings, like some of the other emulators currently available, and perhaps a combo-press of Select and Start to access the keyboard. 

That way we could use Start (would be nice for Pause), and Select for whatever is needed.

Also, game specific settings would definitely be nice, but even if we could just have any button customization that'd be a good feature. We can always save our configs and re-upload them to the GCW when we need to.

I like the sound of per game joystick config files.
I've been thinking about a better way of using the A-stick, perhaps as the keyboard button selector? When activated, you get a transparent keyboard overlay and can use the speed variable A-stick to select the correct key. That then free's up another button.

I still prefer SELECT for menu though as it's generally used for this function and the power switch is fairly delicate and so shouldn't be used too frequently imo.

Totally understandable. Different strokes for different folks. But giving the option to configure the buttons does help cater to each individual's preference. For my config, I'd like to set up the start button for pause, perhaps select for menu, I'd remove the save and load state from the triggers (way too easy to accidentally press them), and turn them into addition play buttons.

Yes I'd forgotten about the triggers for save/load. It's better for them to be configurable as additional keys.

I've been playing around with this fairly frequently these days.  In the next release, could we get the emulator to save the Sound option config so I don't have to keep switching it everytime you start the emulator?  I'm not sure if this is a per-game setting,  or a global config, but it seems to reset to default.

Sure, I'll take a look at config saving.

Don't know if hardware scaling works here, but try power+A in game and see if that does anything.

Won't work, I'll need to add fullscreen.

I've added fullscreen option, however menus still need to be repositioned.



EDIT
Fullscreen option is now working.
