Touchpad Emulation

Since reWASD 5.4, we have expanded the functionality of the touchpad emulation. One-finger swipes on four directions and left, right, center taps are a part of the Basic license, and are available during the 14-day trial period. Advanced and adjustable swipes, taps and zooms are available if both Combo and Advanced Mapping features are purchased, or if they’re in the trial period.

If you want to add the swipes as mappings, please make sure that the type of virtual controller is DualShock 4:

If you want to add one-finger swipe or a left, right, center tap as a mapping, please follow these steps:

  1. Choose a button you want to add a swipe to
  2. Proceed to reWASD mapping list, pick the controller mappings only in the filter to ease the process, and choose the needed mapping:

To add Advanced taps and swipes, use the Key Combo menu. You will see the following icons:

— touchpad click

— swipe. To choose one-finger or two-finger swipe direction, add swipe to the combo sequence and select the required item from the drop-down menu. Then add the needed duration while this swipe will perform

— zoom. To choose the type of the zoom, add it to the combo editor, and choose the needed type in the drop-down menu, zoom in or zoom out. Then add the needed duration while this zoom will perform

— touchpad tap

Please note, that some games ignore the Touchpad click if it is performed without Left, Right, Middle or Multi touchpad tap. We suggest to add a key combo, and you have two ways to make it:

  • If you use Hold Until Release mode, add a Touchpad click and the Left, Right, Middle or Multi touchpad tap:

  • If you use Execute at once mode, add a Left, Right, Middle or Multi touchpad tap and a Touchpad Click, and then drag the Touchpad Click down and Touchpad Click up between Tap Down and Tap up. Also, we suggest to add a pause:

And vice versa, if the game asks you to perform a left, right, center or multi tap, it may not work if you don't add a Touchpad click. So the solution above works for this situation as well.
