– [Sergio A.
] Today I'mgonna show you how to rebind the buttons for theNintendo Switch Joy-Cons, Pro Controller, the Switch Lite, and as bonus even 8BitDo's Gamepads.
(upbeat electronic music) Welcome to It Came From A Box.
This is Sergio A.
And in the latest 10.
0 update, Nintendo has finallyimplemented button mapping which makes the Switchso much more accessible.
To begin first make sure yourconsole's on the latest update and then head over tocontroller and sensors and change button mapping.
In here on the left there'sa list of each controller that's currently connected to your Switch.
As of right now you can only remap the official Joy-Cons and Pro Controllers.
In our testing just about allour third-party controllers, be it wireless, wired, andeven officially licensed ones did not work with this featureexcept for those by 8BitDo, but I'll get back to that in a bit.
And for those wondering, yes, this feature also works for the controls on the Switch Lite.
So, select the one you wantand then go into change.
In here we could remap justabout any button we want except for the home, sync, power, and volume buttons.
But there's also a few restrictions, like you can't remap theanalog stick directions, and both A and B inputsmust always be mapped.
As for what you can do with this, it really comes down to your preference as well as what gameyou want to use with it.
A few examples, you can disableor remap annoying inputs which you don't want toaccidentally trigger, like the capture buttonthat my three-year-old tends to press every five seconds, or do the opposite and annoy people by mapping just about everybutton to the capture button.
No, no, no, please don't do that.
You can also remapdifficult to use inputs, like the analog stick buttons, to something a bit moreaccessible, such as the D-pad, and you can play certain games one-handed by swapping analog sticks, remapping specific buttons, and even change the orientation of the Joy-Con's analog sticks.
Now as I said, most of ourthird-party controllers simply did not work with thisfeature except for 8BitDo's.
I'm guessing it's becausethey're recognized as the official Pro Controllerand not just the generic one.
Anyways, the SN30 Pro, theLite, and the tiny Zero 2 can be remapped, but obviouslyyou can't bind buttons that aren't available onthe controller itself.
So remapping the analogsticks won't do anything for the Zero 2 since it doesn't have any, but you can assign home andcapture to the L and R buttons.
Right, regardless of which you bind, when you're all set thatcontroller will now have a little wrench icon to indicatethat it's been customized.
So if your controller's acting weird, make sure to check that first.
And as a fail-safe, sayyou mess up the binding and can't use that controller, don't worry, just press the sleep button and when you wake upthe console you'll have the option to reset the controller inputs.
Awesome feature there.
Once you're all setwith the configuration, you can also save it.
You have five slots, so youcan easily switch between them, but keep in mind that theseare associated exclusively with the controller type it was made with.
So say you made thosewith the left Joy-Con, any other left Joy-Con canaccess those configurations, and if you want to go back to defaults, you simply press reset.
All right, that about covers it.
Like I first said, this feature not only adds customization to the Switch, but more importantly itmakes it more accessible for people with disabilities.
Here's hoping that Nintendo continues with that mindset and expands on it.
I'd love to see themadd things like macros, the ability to save profiles per game, along with third-party support.
Now handing it off to you, let me know your thoughtsabout this feature along with how you're planning to use it.
