    In the ports eduke32, crispy-heretic and crispy-hexen, I can map my game controller to work in-game but I cannot use it to navigate the game menus. The menus work with a keyboard but I would prefer to use my controller.

    Is it possible to use or adapt the script to enable me to do this? The key presses that need mapping are up arrow, down arrow, Enter, Y (to confirm exit from game) and TAB (to bring up the map in crispy-heretic/hexen).

    I can the run the following command and get the bindings I need to echo in a terminal.

    /opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/ /dev/input/js0 4c0a 520a 550a 440a 09 0d 79
    I cannot work out how to use the script in game so that I can navigate the menus with my controller. Any help would be appreciated.



    It is unlikely to work for anything but terminal apps.



    Thanks. I may have found a solution in the Linux Joystick Mapper.
