Title
(EN) CONTROLLER ADD-ON DEVICE WITH CUSTOMIZABLE PRESETS
(FR) DISPOSITIF COMPLÉMENTAIRE DE MANETTE, À PRÉRÉGLAGES PERSONNALISABLES
Abstract
(EN)
A controller add-on includes a housing that mechanically couples to a game controller body. A conformable surface of the housing is configured to conform with a bottom of the body of the game controller. A plurality of buttons coupled to the housing are located opposite the conformable surface. A controller interface coupled to the housing is configured to communicatively couple to the plurality of buttons to the game controller. Buttons on the add-on may be mapped to controller buttons using customized button mapping pre-sets. A button mapping may indicate that a selected preset is to be hidden during a switching operation Upon receiving a switching operation input, the selected pre-set is skipped during the switching operation.

L'invention concerne un dispositif complémentaire de manette comprenant un boîtier destiné à s'accoupler mécaniquement à un corps d'une manette de jeu. Une surface adaptable du boîtier est conçue pour s'adapter à une partie inférieure du corps de la manette de jeu. Une pluralité de boutons accouplés au boîtier est située à l'opposé de la surface adaptable. Une interface de manette accouplée au boîtier est conçue pour être accouplée à la manette de jeu de manière à communiquer avec la pluralité de boutons. Des boutons sur le dispositif complémentaire peuvent être mis en correspondance avec des boutons de la manette à l'aide de préréglages personnalisés de mise en correspondance des boutons. Une mise en correspondance des boutons peut indiquer qu'un préréglage sélectionné doit être caché pendant une manœuvre de commutation lors de la réception d'une entrée de manœuvre de commutation, le préréglage sélectionné étant sauté pendant la manœuvre de commutation.
