    Hi,

    With the magic of such an open source project, everyone can participate to improve Recalbox.

    @lmerckx is currently working on a dosbox update and we'd be happy to let you test and have your feedback.

    The goal of this new version:

    • Joystick deadzones are now configurable
    • IPX is enabled to allow network play

    Here is how to test it (not available yet for Odroid C2):

    1. First of all make a backup of your SD card or USB key
    2. Edit recalbox.conf and set updates.type to: https://review-316-wip-bu-ednj25-archive-review-prod.recalbox.com
    3. Reboot and upgrade

    • For deadzones: new properties are available in the configuration file (to be tested)
    circularinput: enable translation of circular input to square output. Try enabling this if your left analog stick can only move in a circle.
    
    deadzone: the percentage of motion to ignore. 100 turns the stick into a digital one.
    

    P.S. @voljega you're really welcome here ;)

    We're waiting for your feedback :)

    Je comprend bien que le clavier virtuel n'est pas encore compris dans cet update ?



  • Indeed ... virtual keyboard is for later !

    I'll try to test this this weekend.

    If I have some spare time, I may try to implement universal mapper (as described there : https://forum.recalbox.com/topic/12135/iip-generation-of-custom-mapper-for-dosbox ) to go along @lmerckx modifications in a next release
