Is it possible to get a clone of the N64oid on screen controls? I'm on the Galaxy S3

I'm not posting one, since I'm sure those images are copyrighted by Yongzh.  If you own N64oid yourself, you could unzip the APK file and pull out the images yourself to use in a custom layout.

Hey there!
I would love a layout like your shaded analog tablet one, but with the Z and R buttons arranged next to A and B and made more compact.
Z left of A/B and R right of them, Kind of like a SNES Gamepad layout. Is that possible?
I would really appreciate it!

Info: This is my final product design. Fully operational. I've tested it and I found out this is the perfect gamepad for all the buttons too be used. Your pointer fingers lay side ways on the L, R and Z. All buttons and controls on the screen at once.  (hi-res screens only). May require "Redraw All" option to be enabled. Stick animates. Made for larger tablets in
landscape mode. Prefer button scale to be 100%. Created on a 10.1 inch tablet. Originally
stylized for Adventure games, FPS and Mario Kart 64.

Can you add a feature for previewing the button layout and also have it so you are able to rearrange them. That or have a way to make a layout on the app by have the buttons on the screen then placing them where ever and it saving it.

Is there a way to create custom Xperia Play touchpad layouts in the current version? I tried putting one in the directory with the two default touchpad layouts in it but it doesn't show up in the list on the touchpad menu. There doesn't seem to be a choice for "custom" in the touchpad menu like there is for the touch screen.

Yeah, we didn't think to add a custom option for the touchpads, didn't think anyone would need one.  But you could still do it just by overwriting one of the stock ones.  Just be sure to back up your modified version, because sometimes they'll get reset back to their defaults during an app update.

Alright I'll try that out, thanks. The reason I wanted to create my own is I'd like to use the left pad for the analog stick but I want the c buttons on actual buttons. Unfortunately when I enable the touchpad the c buttons are no longer mappable in the button mapping menu. Hopefully if I change the default touchpad file to no longer use the c buttons they'll become mappable.

You can map the cpad to buttons without creating a new layout.  Disable the touchpad, then map the cpad, then re-enable the touchpad.

Oh cool, thanks. I assumed that the message on the button layout screen saying they were already mapped meant I couldn't do both.

It's there mostly to let people know they don't need to map them since they're already taken care of by the touchpad.  But I agree it could probably be done another way without completely blocking you from mapping.  I'll keep that in mind for the next major app update.

I would LOVE to see a layout where the joystick is recentered (and thus moves) every time you touch the designated area on the screen. it would make goldeneye/zelda slingshot view actually fun and usable. I know thats outside the scope of 'custom layout'... let me know if you want to implement this feature; if not maybe ill do it myself one weekend

Animated joystick is already there; it's just disabled by default to save processing time.  You just have to enable it:
Settings->Input->Touchscreen->Joystick animation

Some freinds of mine and I were discussing the best way to play Smash Bros on a touch screen, and we decided it would likely be some form of gestures, in place of a normal joystick. Is this a feature that could reasonably be added?

That's a very cool idea and certainly one that never occurred to me.  It might not be too hard to implement since the.mupen side of input handling is very modular, but I've never used the gestures api so I can't say for certain.  If another dev wants to take the lead on it, I could definitely point them to hooks they'd need to attach to.  In any case I'll add it to my suggestion box...  thanks :)

Re: Custom Gamepad (and Touchpad) Layouts! NEW LAYOUT for Action Games
« Reply #89 on: March 04, 2014, 04:24:00 PM »
This is made for those action games that require aiming and shooting.

I have to mention I am new at this and I did use images from previous layouts. I'm just sharing my work.
