FBA key mapping
« on: November 13, 2019, 04:16:47 pm »
Playing Galaga in FBA in portrait mode, the joystick left and right are reversed. Changing the key config doesn't seem to do anything although L & R are confusingly mapped to Fire 5 and Fire 6. The only way I can get left and right to work properly is to rotate -90 and play the game in Ladscape mode, which is a shame as it doesn't fill the screen. Any idea how to fix left and right, or is key mapping just not working currently?

Try changing the config txt file... It can take some trial and error setting this stuff up :) But its worth a shot

Interesting. I didn't realize FBA creates a config file with the key mapping in it per game. Galaga config KEY_LEFT is 276 and KEY_RIGHT is 275. Will try reversing those.

Looks like the config file only affects the D-Pad, as reversing the Left and Right values in the config file did reverse the actual D-Pad operation, but didn't affect the joystick. I don't think we must have access to remapping the joystick controls.

Just got a reply back in Discord. Changing rotation to -180 in the settings for Galaga reversed the controls to how they should be  :)
