Turbo Button Mapping?

Unread post by TheMrAwesomeness »

I was wondering if there is a way to map turbo buttons on the TG-16 core. I noticed there aren’t any options when I map the buttons to my controller. Is there possibly an edit in the .ini file to do, or is there a turbo feature possibly on the way? For some games on the TG-16, the turbo function is practically required, so I was wondering if there was an option available.

It does not work exactly as the turbo switches on the original turbografx controller, but you can get the same functionality with the auto fire feature.

I have two buttons mapped to each of I and II. Then I enable auto fire on one of the two buttons which allows me to easily switch between turbo and normal mode.

On the TG16, the controller's turbo buttons weren't separate buttons entirely, but just turbo versions of the I and II buttons where the turbo function was built into the controller itself. The original Japanese controllers didn't even have the turbo buttons at all.

Here's what the link says:

Auto fire

Any defined button (except d-pad) supports auto fire feature. To activate auto fire, press and keep desired button and then quickly press the button defined as "BUTTON OSD"(for joystick) or "KBD TOGGLE"(for keyboard). To deactivate auto fire, repeat the the same procedure.

Auto fire provides 50ms-1000ms rates. To choose the speed, press and keep one of direction on d-pad and then quickly press the button defined as "BUTTON OSD"(for joystick) or "KBD TOGGLE"(for keyboard).


Can any help me decipher this? What exactly am I supposed to do?

Here's what you do:
  1. I assume you have a gamepad with at least 4 face buttons, let's call them A B C D
  2. Define your gamepad in central mapping (menu core), and assign a OSD button to it
  3. Load the TG16 core
  4. Map your gamepad once, using A and B for I and II
  5. Select "yes" when asked if you want alternate mapping
  6. Skip all buttons except C and D, map them to I and II
  7. When done, close the OSD
  8. Hold down C then press the OSD button to activate autofire on it
  9. Repeat with D
  10. To change autofire rate, hold up or down then press OSD button
This will give you 2 normal buttons and 2 corresponding turbo buttons, similar to how it's done for some 8bitdo controllers.
