Default Blutrol Compatibility list (iCade with non-iCade Games)

In case you didnt know blutrol is a jailbreak tweak that allows you to map iCade buttons to touch screen presses so you can play virtual button games with iCade or iControlPad or similar.
Since the release of blutrol I have seen a few posts on other forums and some here about compatibility. So lets start one up and let those who are interested know what works, and what doesnt work and any tricks to make something work better. It can also override iCade compatible games profiles so you can replace the layout with your own (probably more useful for controllers that emulate iCade).

In the current release the mapping doesnt work too well with floating dpads as it registers a touch rather than a drag from center, so the touch will usually create a center and then be unable to move in that direction, hopefully a fix is in progress.

Not working

Sonic 4 is working for me but the joystick is rotated 90 degrees exactly like THPS2. Frogatto has the same issue though the left and right movements can easily be mapped to buttons. Minecraft PE's d-pad, jump button and dig command can all be mapped but looking around can not.

Cheers for all them

For the rotated joystick ones, are you trying to run in portrait or landscape mode?

And what device are you using, cant be your 4s. all my tests have to be done on 3gs atm

Well, good to know that Commander Pixman works, but 'real' iCade support will come also.

Default I'm having issues

For some reason, I just can't get Street Fighter 4 Volt, or Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 to work. Other games that I have work just fine, like Zombieville 2, the blocks cometh, jetpack joyride, and others.

The thing that really drives me crazy is the fact that everyone else has street fighter working. I've even seen the videos of it working, but for me it's a no go. Ive tried flipping my iPad orientation, flipping the screenshot in blutrol, reinstalling street fighter, reinstalling blutrol, and just about everything else I can think of with no success. To be honest, I'm starting to go a bit crazy over here trying to figure this out.

Do any of you have any suggestions? 1st gen iPad on 5.0.1 if that helps. I'm hoping this is just something simple I am overlooking, because the main reason I bought blutrol was for street fighter and other fighting games

I'm really at a loss here. The funny thing is that I would almost rather have none of the games working than have just a few. That would at least make troubleshooting easier.

Ive tried everything short of restoring my ipad and re-jailbreaking. Maybe I should bump up to 5.1 instead of my current 5.0.1? Ive reinstalled everything. I even deleted the blutrol config file (which wiped out all of my other game configurations) to start out fresh with only street fighter as the one game in blutrol. No go.

This is pure madness to me!! Why do some games work perfectly but others, which ARE working for other people, do not work? GRAAAAAHHHHH!!!!

Here's my Reckless Racing 2 config (iPad):

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/13100693/htm...trolconfig.jpg

As you can see, I've reorganized the buttons so that the brake / gas can also be accessed via the D-pad. However, I've also added a separate button to gas too - that is, giving gas can be done by both "up" and the button.

With Blutrol, the game runs just fine on the iPad 2.

Default Donkey Kong '94?

Hi. I recently installed one of the gameboy emus and mapped it with blutrol. In reading reviews of games for it, kept seeing donkey kong '94 recommended. However, for the life of me, I can't see to find it anywhere. Can anyone point me i the right direction?

Not allowed to post links for roms in TA.
Also why did you use blutrol on gbc.emu? it has built in icade support and allows you to remap the buttons anyway, basically not needed at all.
