Touch Emulation

As an early Christmas present, we’ve added a cool new feature to the Sixaxis Controller app – touch emulation!

This feature is highly experimental at this stage, but allows users to lay out mappings between controller buttons and the touch screen. Not only does this allow full use of the analog sticks, but many games not designed for use with controllers become playable too.

Features include:

  • Ability to save and manage profiles.
  • Analog sticks work in both absolute mode (think virtual joystick) and relative mode (camera look).
  • Configurable dead zone and sensitivity.
  • Digital buttons can be configured as a swipe instead of a tap.
