Controller quirk [buttons 5 & 6 mapped to a strike ?]

Postby Leena » 12 Dec 2006, 03:06

I use a PS2 controller, and when I accidentally hit one of the shoulder buttons (which is easy to do)... it usually causes a normal, straight shot no matter what I'm trying to hit.

I don't have the shoulder buttons set to do any actions, which is why it seems a bit strange.

I doubt you'll be able to help as it's likely a controller thing, but just wondering if there's any way to stop that. Thanks.

Hello,

after an user demand, I have mapped the buttons 5 & 6 to the top spin and the slice strikes.

If you want to have the possibilities to remap these buttons (so they won't be assigned to your shoulder buttons anymore), you have to open the "Tennis.ini" file (or the .ini of your current profile, in the "Profiles" sub-folder), and change this line, under [Menu], from :
CtrlExtraButton = 0
to:
CtrlExtraButton = 1

after, you'll see the 2 new strikes in the controller menu.

Thanks. :)

It's a good idea to add those buttons. Knowing about it, I'll use them now.

Why don't you include the option to map those buttons in the original game though?

Hello,

I don't show these buttons by default because it's not the way the game is intended to play (ie: up & down have no effect with these 2 buttons, contrary to b1, b2, and b1+2), and as a player, I feel it's too much buttons to handle, so I don't want people think they have to use them...
