I just found out about Blutrol and I finally managed to get Minecraft PE set up on my iPad and my Zaggmate Keyboard. I have been after a tweak like this for so long and was hoping that it would work with the BTstack Mouse tweak I have.

A couple of cons is that it there is no true D-pad for Blutrol which makes moving almost impossible in Minecraft because you can only go in one direction and not diagonally. On top of that if I were to use my mouse I have to click and hold to look around, which then cancels out any movement in the Blutrol application. The same thing would happen if I were to use my keyboard to run around, then use press on the touchscreen using my finger, it would cancel out Blutrol.

What I would love to see is Blutrol work flawlessly with the BTstack Mouse tweak.

Kudos to the app so far and hoping to see more improvements such as more keys.

Great! Blutrol isn't compatible with 6.1. This plus RetinaPad was the reason I JB. Bummer

Success! The previous issues were just due to a bloated Cydia. Having a blast on Alpha Squadron and KOF. This is awesome!

Because of the fixed control stick Gods Rebellion is flawless with icade/blutrol. Enjoy

Guys,

BluTrol 3.0 has just been released - with analogue support!!!!


(original (large) image: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/81986513/03.../blutrol30.jpg )

Off to test them with my iContolPad and its excellent analog controls. Will report back.

I've tested the new version quite a bit with analogue single/dual stick games.

I've found you need to use the built-in iControlPad connection to connect to the iCP started with Start+Y (as has also been mentioned by El Nacho). When trying to connect from the iDevice, start your iCP. You don't need to touch the stock Bluetooth settings. Your iCP can be paired with your iDevice the Y mode is absolutely independent of the ABX / ABY iCade ones.

To map the analogue nub(s), reposition the "L" (and, in dual stick games, "R") circles (possibly enlargening them by pinching). An example screenshot with NOVA2 configured to run in Control mode 3 (it isn't the default):



(large image: https://dl.dropbox.c...utrol-nova2.jpg )

Unfortunately, if you just move the center of the nub just only a bit, the change won't be registered. (A program error in Blutrol?) Actually, with NOVA2, when the game starts registering movement, it's already at a high amplitude (and a large movement of the nub). Basically, there's only little difference between the smallest and largest values registered.

(BTW, Mode 4 in NOVA2 (using the entire screen to aim) is even more useless than Mode 3 if you define "R" to cover almost the entire screen.)

This all means the control is by no way as smooth as in the native iCP support of Vertex Blaster.

Did anyone find a game where BluTrol behaves much better?

(Of course, my copy is legally purchased see the "Purchased" arrow at https://dl.dropbox.c...0/blutrol30.jpg , which shows the update notes.)

I got Blutrol working on my PS3 controller with a mario-like game called SWA but I can't get the emulators nes.emu, gba.emu, ... working.

Any idea?
