Missing Controller Option

You don't have a "touch" controller in lunchbox meta data controller options.

I've been building "touch games" theme for big box for people with touch games.
I still can't believe no one in this community has any focus on touch arcades with the touch games world we now live in.

Anyone can quickly add multi-touch to there arcade with a IR simple overlay.

Please add this category.

Thanks.

Just so we are clear, you can add any controller or controller group you want. You can build custom badges FOR that new controller/group using the plugin interfaces as well. Our included metadata was in no way meant to be a comprehensive list of input methods, but something that got users as close as possible. Also just because you can USE a touch controller for a mouse game, doesn't mean the game natively supported touch input. Very few consoles have true touch input natively, and even then some of the systems that support it don't require it and so you would have to glean that information as well. If you get a trustworthy source for this information though let us know and we could maybe get it tossed into the XML file that we store that information in.

Hi!


Slightly off-topic, but controller type related:

Any chance of getting this "Missing media files - Back cover" feature added in the near future? It's now more relevant with the new the controller feature, maybe some up-votes might help ;)

https://bitbucket.org/jasondavidcarr/launchbox/issues/5870/games-missing-media-option-for-boxes-back

Back covers in many cases gives you information/confirmation of:

- controller types

- player number offline

- player number online

and other good information for filling missing metadata fields on the database.

 

EDIT: Got some good feedback on bitbucket - the Audit tools has the Back covers in one column, so that does the job well enough to find the missing ones fast and easy. Happy with that!
