Mapping diagonal directions?

Mapping diagonal directions?

Postby tinpanalley » 2018-4-15 @ 20:56

I'm playing Tony La Russa Baseball (and other games) and when using the keyboard, you can run in an angle on the field using 1, 3, 7, and 9 on the number pad. How do I use mapping of my Logitech F710 or X360 controllers to map diagonal directions? It seems I can only map up down left and right but no angles.
Also, for further info, the Logitech F710 can be X-input and D-input with a switch. So I only use it on X-input and use the 360 controller for D-input gaming.

Thanks!

I second this.

I would like to map keys to my right thumbstick for Dark Castle without the need of using the games internal joystick support. But I can only map x/y -/+ which becomes 4 directions. I need 8.
Okay, now roll sanity.

Numpad 1, 3, 7 and 9 are used for aiming or moving in all directions:
Contra (to aim in all directions)
Dark Castle (aiming in all directions)
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (can circumvent this by mapping joystick input instead)
Le Fetiche Maya (movement, no workaround found)

Numpad 7 and Numpad 9 is used for directional jumps:
AJ's Quest (jumps only)
Builder (jumps only)
Death by Dark Shadows (jumps only)
Prince of Persia (jumps only)
Okay, now roll sanity.
