 Post subject: Another way to change the dpad mode

Hi ulao,

I have a request for changing the dpad mode, specifically with the original dreamcast arcade stick http://segaretro.org/Dreamcast_Arcade_Stick. Per default the joystick is mapped to 11 12 13 14 (so it is basically the dpad of a dreamcast controller). x is 1, a is 2, y is 3, b is 4, z is 10 and c is 9, start is of course 6. with this controller I cant change the "dpad" to analogue as it has no l and r buttons. I get that z and c are mapped to 9 and to 10 so that this button assingment is streamlined throughout the 6 button controllers, but would it be possible to implement a button combo for changing the dpad mode with this controller, for example 9+10+start? or better yet, do you have any other idea? i am doing this for now: connecting a regular dc controller, doing the dpad change combo, plugging my arcade stick back in without resetting. doing this everytime kind of sucks on the long rung. xbox mode also is not a viable solution with this controller, as z and c complete stop working (why not assign them to the bumpers of the xbox controller in xbox mode?)

Sorry for the long post, I did not know how to get it shorter. Thanks!

I see your point, yeah this is an easy addition.

I'm not able to test this at the moment but give it a try if you like.

I just had a chance to test it and it works. This will get pushed upstream for 1.56.1.

Sorry that I did not have the time to test it earlier. I just tested the firmware, it works perfectly. Thank you so much!
