How many Fire Buttons sopports the CD-i ?

Post by pr3ston » Thu Sep 29, 2011 12:41 pm


i have a few different CD-i controllers but it seems that not all buttons have a real funktion...

On the 3 Button Controller the third one is only a comnination of Button one and two ?!

And the gravis pad is even more confusing :/

Sorry for the poor english, hope you can help

I've noticed that too. It is annoying, but probably neccesary to ensure that all controller models function w/each game.

The CD-i API's specify two buttons, which is why the "button 3 kludge" was invented. Blame Philips :wink:
