New Features
  • Improved Touchpad emulation
    • On PS4 games, the Touchpad button provides more output options - ie, allowing players to reset training mode in Street Fighter V.
      • You can hold Left, Down, or Right as you press Touchpad to change the reset positions in SFV.
    • On PC, functionality remains the same and will require remapping in Steam to add L3, R3, etc.
  • Directional Output modes
    • You can now swap among DPad, Left Stick, and Right Stick output with the directional buttons - DPad is still default.
    • With the Hit Box plugged in:
      • Hold Options/Start + Left for 5 seconds to output Left Stick
      • Hold Options/Start + Right for 5 seconds to output Right Stick
      • Hold Options/Start + Up for 5 seconds to output DPad
      • Unplugging and plugging the Hit Box back in will reset it to DPad.
    • This will provide more compatibility with games that do not accept DPad as movement.
