    well like how zelda did it.
    You gota use the touch screen to attack and stuff.
    can we make it the dpad please o.o? and the abxy buttons

    That would certainly be nice. Using the touchscreen all the time gets uncomfortable after a very short time.

    From my understanding of the screenshots, it's not like Zelda at all. It's got giant buttons on the touchscreen; one for the force, one for saber striking, etc.. and these buttons serve as an alternative to using the ABXY and D-Pad buttons.

    That's just how I interpret the screen shots anyway.

    actually, the ABXY and D-Pad are used identically for movement, so both left and right handed players can play. Same with L and R...both for block/dash.
    also noting that there are 5 on screen buttons, and only four for the ABXY.
    so, I don't think that this would be possible.

    Well have the main things on the D-pad and the rest on touch screen
    Mains:
    Jump
    Attack
    Force Push
    Force Choke
    ---------------
    Thunder and saber throw can stay on the touch screen

    PS: as long as u can get Jump and attack on A and B, it will be better

    Canader.
    You could remap the R button, then all would be fine.

    no. I think we all need the basic attack button on a button. unless your refering to the other posts as well other wise my post was useless. IDK.

    This is what It should be:
    a: Basic attack
    b: jump
    y: force choke
    x: force push
    r: force throw
    l: guard

    the thunder can stay on the screen.

    That's it.. also you drag one button to the other with the stylus to make a combo, that would be the biggest problem with button mapping..

    I would actually preffer a d-pad to touch screen hack, moving with the D-Pad is awful in this game since it has a 3D space.. [​IMG]

    Just stick with touch screen, seriously...will work so much easier. Combos would fail with the button mapping, and controls for left-handers like myself would be screwy beyond belief. This game actually was good with it's touch screen combat (beaten the game twice as of now, haha)
