Binding description

Postby pokryfka » Sat Dec 05, 2015 2:34 am

Just bought Joystick Mapper and Joystick Show.
Works great! (except for some incompatibility with Steelseries Nimbus which I'll describe in another thread.)
My (small?) feature request is to be able to add textual description to each binding.
After creating a dozen of bindings I find it a bit confusing to remember their purpose.
I think it would be much more easier to understand presets (and then modify cloned presets for another game or controller)
if it was possible to add "Action description" to each binding,
For example binding "Button 1" -> "Keyboard Space" could have a description "Jump"

Thanks for the suggestion.
I plan to to something like that for a future update.

editing presets is currently hard because of the lack of information like that.

Also, it would be nice to be able to include descriptions of the binding names for common controllers - e.g. Triangle for button 3 and L1 for button 4 on a Dualshock, or left horizontal axis, left vertical axis, right horizonal axis etc. What people are trying to achieve is mapping buttons on their controller to actions in a game - the button name and key controls are just the means to the ends.

Maybe there could be an interface where the user describes each button on their controller (the interface from Joystick Show would help identify buttons then name them) and then these descriptions replace the button/axis names in the profile editor.

Then add a description field for each binding for jump, look left, strafe right etc.

That would greatly enhance the usability of your app, which is great by the way. Thanks for making it!
