I'm doing my best to add support for new devices (especially HTC and Samsung), but it seems that it might not always be possible to add compatibility. In this case, the only option for running the app on said device is with an AOSP based rom such as CyanogenMod.
Also, throughout the thread I will occasionally be posting beta versions of the app that include new experimental features. I would be most appreciative of any feedback from those willing to test these new features.
For those looking for help with touch profiles, mythek88 has put together a master list here with a growing list of games. Hopefully at some stage I will add the ability to share profiles directly through the app.
So I have rooted my nexus 7, got six axis up and running, and have successfully paired a ps3 controller. Now what?
My ultimate goal is to play gta3, vice city, and the other games that have been released on the play market by rockstar. But i'm a LOOOOOOONG ways away from that.
In the sixaxis app there is an "edit mapping" under preferences. I don't understand how to use this utility, and I can't seem to find any information about it on the dancing pixels website. I am not talking about the "touch emulator." Just trying to use the controller to basically navigate on my tablet is nearly impossible, the current key mapping is indecipherable. For example, the most logical use of the "x" button for me would be to select or confirm what ever I have highlighted. however this seems to act as a back button.
So far the controller is generally un usable. I have game pade mode enabled, changed IME, etc. I just can't get it to function in any reasonable way.
Does anyone know what I am talking about? Has anyone had the same struggle? Can anyone shed some light on how to get my paired ps3 controller to behave in a logical way? I hope this makes sense. I fear that I may be so dumb that I cannot accurately describe my difficulties. I must be doing something wrong, it doesn't make sense that Sixaxis would require hours of tweaking and setup just to work like a "native" controller.
I am losing my mind! Everything I've read, all the videos I've watched said that this was the end all answer for gaming on a tablet, and I can't get basic function out of this.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE I am begging for help. I am a silly stupid noob who just wants to play games on my nexus, and I am at your mercy.
