2nd Gamepad for Multiplayer possible?
« on: April 02, 2014, 10:39:29 pm »
Hi,

I am googeling a while now - is there really no way to have to joypads connected to the GCW? I would like to play Amiga games with two players. As far as I can see currently UAE4Droid is the only emulator allowing custom mappings for two sticks. I tried the Competition USB, but it is mapped to the DPAD of my GPD G5A. I also tried to connect a XBOX 360 wireless gamepad (would love to use two of them), but also with no success, because these are all mapped to the same DPAD...

Is there a solution that I missed?

Multiple input devices might be supported in an upcoming firmware for the GCW Zero. This however, does not mean specific emulators will support multiple players.

Yes, I know, but thank you for pointing that out.
But so far noone knows if and when there will be a firmware upgrade. That's why I ordered a G5A, I thought that should be possible...

In Android it's possible, just use Tincore to rename your dpad or buttons name for the 2nd joystick. For instance, you can conert dpad up, down, left right to something like I,J,K,L. The same for the buttons.

Hi Skelton (I learned that ;)),

Thanks for your reply.
So I must have something wrong, but as far as I can see the keys are recognised with the same Keycode in Android and I think this was also true in Tincore when I tried this yesterday. So pressing DPAD is recognised always for player one.  I have to admit that I am a bit confused with Tincore and I am not really understanding the options. Is there a turotial/manual for multiple Gamepads?

Thanks again !
