Controller support[edit]

A fix is required for the DOSBox Mapper to recognize XInput triggers, D-pad, and right analog stick when assigning controls.
Fix remapping issues

  3. Go to "DirectInput" and check "Enable DirectInput Output".
  4. Assign Right Stick to Z Axis/Z Rot.
  5. Assign LT/RT to Button 11/12.
  6. Assign DPAD to Button 13-16.
