The software can automatically detect certain game controllers and assign mouse gestures as well as key combinations to gamepad buttons. Users are able to configure up to 8 different sets of game controllers in a single profile. Each gamepad can be assigned a unique image to identify the controller model. Configuration templates can also be found on the website of some game developers as well as online gaming communities.
Users can manually assign game triggers as well as keyboard shortcuts to the various buttons on the gamepad. Mouse gestures are then assigned to the analog joysticks with the emulation speed adjusted according to the desired sensitivity level through the testing feature.
