Mobile Controller

Since reWASD 6.3 we have implemented a Mobile Controller feature. This allows you to use your Android device as a controller, and remap it in a preferable way alone, or grouped with other devices. To use this feature, you need reWASD Junior installed on your Android device, reWASD installed on your PC, and both should be connected to the same wireless network. This is a paid feature that becomes available after you purchase Mobile Controller feature, or enable its trial period.

To begin, open reWASD Junior and tap the burger menu in the upper-left corner. Click on Mobile Controller, then choose one of the previously created devices, or tap the + sign to add a new one:

Once created, Mobile Controller will appear in reWASD Junior as well, and to use or customize it, open the burger menu, then tap Mobile Controller, and choose the device you wish to use from the list. Let's learn more about the modes for Mobile controller, and their properties:

  • Gamepad — a customizable gamepad with touchpad and device sensors support (Gyro and Rotation Vector (Tilt)) Here is how you can customize your mobile controller in Gamepad mode in reWASD Junior:

Let's talk about how to remap a mobile controller. When you are done with creating and customizing a controller in reWASD Junior, a device will appear in reWASD on PC. Choose the Mobile Controller as an active device, then add a new Game Profile, or choose an existing one, and start remapping.

Depending on the mode you chose in reWASD Junior, the Mobile Controller layout and remapping options in reWASD will differ:

Gamepad

Mobile Controller

This mode offers you a gamepad-like layout you can customize: sticks, trigger press and analog, touchpad, buttons, gyroscope — you have it all. Remap this device the same way you would remap a controller.

It is also possible to add the Mobile Controller to the group with other devices and remap it. This is useful if you wish to use gyroscope input, but your controller does not have a gyroscope. Group your gamepad with Mobile Controller, then remap them both to a virtual gamepad of your choice, and the games will detect only one gamepad — a Virtual controller — that will give out inputs from both your phone and controller(s).

Gamepad Touchpad

Mobile Controller

This mode turns your device into a touchpad, and you can remap it similar to how you remap DS4 and DS5 touchpads. The touchpad itself has Analog mode, which allows you to remap it to mouse moves and use it as a laptop-like touchpad, and Digital mode, which offers you to remap 4 separate touchpad zones the way you prefer. There’s also a tile on the right side of the touchpad, that you can remap to your liking.

Control Pad

Mobile Controller

This mode offers 30 buttons and two trigger-like sliders you can remap. To start remapping, choose a button in reWASD interface, and assign a mapping to it. To swap the view and get to the second batch of 15 spare keys, tap the icon on your right side.

Two sliders also have settings for three Trigger Zones in the Zones menu: assign a mapping to them depending on what zone your finger is touching.
