Pocket Go 2 - using of L2, R2 buttons
« on: January 16, 2020, 06:52:46 am »
I play mostly on ReGBA and POCKETSNES emulators and I noticed that using of L2, R2 buttons as L, R would be more comfortable for my fingers. Is there a way to remap them? ReGBA has input settings but it doesn't see L2, R2.

The majority of OPKs being used haven't been recompiled for Pocket Go 2 or RG 350 to take advantage of extra buttons.
A lot of them have been re-used from the GCW Zero, and still refer to that system and it's A/B/X/Y button layout where X and Y are swapped relative to the typical SNES pad layout.

Hi @misamisa  !
I have just written a patch for the ReGBA to use L2 and R2 buttons in the RG350 console.

Do you want to test it in your Pocket Go 2?

The code is here https://github.com/valentecaio/ReGBA/commit/c757246f4d84a5b70136064128c32dc9689cd464
And the opk is my gdrive https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1MrDJaaO_L4qAh4Clk_-2aiPVKOpvWnfs

If it doesn't work, we can work together to find the right key values for the L2/R2 of Pocket Go and generate an opk for you!

Cheers from Brazil :D

Unfortunately this doesn't seem to work in the PG2/Playgo, can't seem to map L2/R2 to anything as it doesn't recognise them.

Hi @lemmywinks !

This one that you tested had been compiled for the RG350, but there is already a version for the playgo, done by skewerr, here: https://github.com/skewerr/ReGBA/commit/8824d3303f1faace68d40c74997f551b6cd16d4a

I have compiled it and uploaded to my drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1MrDJaaO_L4qAh4Clk_-2aiPVKOpvWnfs

Can you test it?

Hi guys!
I've made a version of ReGBA that enables an USB joystick to be used.

opk in my drive (version 2020-05-19) : https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1MrDJaaO_L4qAh4Clk_-2aiPVKOpvWnfs
source here: https://github.com/valentecaio/ReGBA-RG350/commit/4437bb581dd7524a646335742bc8b75eb00e3fee

You may need to update your firmware to enable the driver of the USB joystick.
When you have the driver, you joystick may appear in /etc/input/js1 when you plug it! If it does not appear, you are unlucky and your firmware don't have the driver!

The current version of the ROGUE firmware (v 1.7.9.9R) does not support the driver for my Generick USB Joystick, so I made a custom version of the firmware that enables this driver (also available in the drive above, in the firmware section).

If everything works, you may just plug your joystick, open ReGBA, and it may work with the same configuration (key mappings) of your native buttons.

Cheers!
