Version 1.97 released

Hey there! A couple of users recently asked if it would be possible to make screen region borders translucent, so here’s a small software update that includes that feature. There is a new ‘Default region translucency’ setting in the program options (Display tab). Changing this will adjust how see-through screen regions are (both border and background image, if set). For backwards compatibility with previous versions, the default translucency is set to zero, but if you like this new feature, go ahead and change it to make your screen regions translucent.

For each screen region, there is the option to use this default translucency, which should be fine in most cases, or override it by specifying a different translucency value.

Play Forza Horizon 5

Here’s another excellent video from Kousha (@Kousha11y), discussing accessible game play possibilities and issues for Forza Horizon 5. Note that you can play FH5 with the same profiles as for FH4.

Version 1.96 released

Hi everyone! I’ve made a minor release of Alt Controller to reintroduce a couple of additional options for configuring ”Repeat key (directional)’ actions, which are typically used for steering or accelerating vehicles. These somehow got removed when I made some simplifications, but apparently some users find them useful. See the ‘Repeat key (directional) action’ section of the Types of action help page for more information and a screenshot. I have also fixed a bug which was causing these actions sometimes to fail to release the key being pressed.

Additional options for ‘Repeat key (directional)’ actions

As always, full details of the latest changes can be found on the Release notes page.

Version 1.94 released

Hi folks! This minor update adds an option to ‘snooze’ Alt Controller profiles (i.e. not perform any actions) when you are using certain programs (e.g. Alt Controller itself). You can find the new option in the Apps tab of the Edit situations window and there’s more information and a screenshot on this help page.

As always, full details of the latest changes can be found on the Release notes page.

I’m delighted to announce that the Profiles page now features the amazing instructive videos created by Kousha which provide clear demonstrations of how to play various games using Alt Controller and the profiles he has created.
