Today is the day I release the first official version of 8-Bitty Controller for OSX, unlike the previous trial release this version features a hopefully intuitive design and wait for it… DUAL CONTROLLER SUPPORT! That’s right you can now play two player games!!
There was also a issue in the previous release that resulted in the “held” state of a button to not work correctly, this has now been resolved and the keys repeat correctly. This was noticeable in games like Super Mario where running was not possible.
I have decided as a trial to provide this software as donationware, I investigated using the Mac App Store to sell this software however due to its nature it can not be approved, and 3rd party licensing systems will just cost too much. As well as I have always wanted to provide to everyone even if they can not pay, but at the end of the day I have bills to pay and need motivated to keep supporting the project.
So with that being said if too little donations are received I will consider this project and all future projects to be Shareware. If anyone donates they will receive a licence should the project be turned into shareware.
With that out of the way, please start downloading and providing some feedback on what needs fixing or improving
