C64 Joystick enhancements ?

Unread post by Coffea »

A couple of minor QOL feature requests regarding the C64 Joystick support

Additional button mappings for

- Autofire : This was pretty much standard on the better joysticks back in the day and some games just assume you have this feature

- Additional button hard coded to Joy1-fire (call it Fire4) : Joy1-fire is basically space bar, allowing a button on Joy 2 to be mapped as Joy1-fire would allow demos/cracktros to be advanced without needing to swap or have a keyboard connected and as an aside enhance a couple of games (eg making Turrican fully playable with only a controller).

It is documented here... but yes it's a bit hidden and usually "discoverable" by accident in the worst possible moments :lol:
