Gamepad update (22/12/2018)

Much anticipated controller update is finally here, with quite a few improvements.

  • Gamepad button remapping supported
  • Both XInput and DirectInput gamepads supported
  • The typo that killed player 2 gamepad entirely is fixed - sorry about that!
  • Additional & optional settings: Analog/digital movement, slow button, 3rd weapon autofire

  • Some bugs gone (stingy score salamander, floor prison)
  • Some crashes gone (being shy about your team name in co-op)
  • Probably some others too but it's been a while since the last patch

A little bird told us someone wished for a season-appropriate palette, so GREEN+RED has been added! And since it's the worst possible palette regarding colorblindness, we threw in another icy & spicy palette too.

We've also created a new bug megathread in order to more easily catalog any possible bugs/errors that might surface, so feel free to report them there.

This will be our final update for this year (unless something urgent shows up). We're pretty pumped to see what the next year has in store for us - let's make it even better than the last one.

Happy holidays everyone!

“ZeroRanger is overflowing with heroism and the love for classic Japanese shmups and anime. Over-the-top yet reserved, it is not only a shmup masterpiece, but also a heroic tale filled with genuinely heart-breaking moments.”
5/5 – CowLevel
