All these gamepad and mouse limitations in Android are really frustrating. It took them ten years to get mouse support sort of straight, and controllers are still kinda bugged. Ah well, we have to work with what we got. ?♂️
I agree that loopers are probably the best solution. You can do this:
– Create 4 loopers, configure them as invisible and non-detectable, and rename them so they’re easily identifyable (e.g. 1&2, 3&4, 5&6, 7&8)
– open the loopers menu again, and create four looper lists; each one containing a pair of keypresses (1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8)
– tap on each of the four loopers, and select the appropriate list
– map the four loopers to the four directions of the dpad.
Result: when you press dpad up, you will select weapon 1 and 2 in turns, dpad right will select weapon 3 and 4 in turns, etc.
I just tested it, and I think it’ll work well enough. ?
