Joystick Selection Slider
Purpose: This add-on is intended to allow users change the input mode of the primary gamepad directional inputs between D-Pad, Left analog joystick, and Right analog joystick using a two/three position toggle switch or slide toggle.
Web Configurator Options
The pin(s) are now configured on the Pin Mapping page by choosing the correct option for the selected pin.
- D-Pad Mode: D-Pad
- D-Pad Mode: Left Stick
- D-Pad Mode: Right Stick
Slider Pin Mode Default- The directional input mode that is active when no
D-Pad Modepins are held.
Digital- D-Pad directional inputs
Left Analog- Cardinal directions on the Left Analog joystick at maximum magnitude.
Right Analog- Cardinal directions on the Right Analog joystick at maximum magnitude.
The GPIO pins set on the Pin Mappings page will each need to be brought and kept low to remain active to use that mode, and when using the default mode, none of the pins can be brought low. Therefore, a 2 or 3 position toggle switch or slide toggle is necessary for proper use of this add-on.
Installation will depend on whether a toggle switch or slide toggle is used. In general, on one side of the switch, connect the selection pin(s) to the GPIO pin(s) set. On the center pin, connect it to any GND pin.
Enabling this add-on will disable the use of the DPad Hotkey Shortcuts, resulting in the toggle switch or slide toggle set up with this add-on being the only method to set the DPad mode.
