Trio linker V3.163 (Download)   2004-09-08

1) New macro function. 
    When Joypad Option is set "joystick", Macro function is compatible with PC joypad.
    On the other hand, when Joypad Option is set "keyboard", Macro functioin is compatible with PC keyboard.
2) Macro Interface function. This function is basically divided into two parts.
Function 1:
This function records all buttons pressed (on the controller/ keyboard) throughout the game. The recording can be replayed over and over again whenever you like during the game. Macro editor can edit the recorded file.
         (When recording, there must be a complete record file path. Through Macro Main window "Add", you can add file, input setting value. Then through Macro Main window "Open", run.)
Function 2:
This new function inputs all buttons through Macro Editor into *.joy file as a sequence of different actions.
You can then choose any button on the controller or keyboard as the shortcut key. Simply by pressing that shortcut key, you can replay the sequence of buttons that you have set.
     This function is suitable for battle games.

Macro Main Window :

Macro Editor :

*Note: Because of synchronization, save & replay may not be suitable for certain games (such as Racing games as there are time differences). However, in arcade games, it is perfect.
For example: In a racing game, if I start recording at 00:00:00, when I replay, if I am 1 second slower(00:00:01), because of the 1 second time difference between starting to record and starting to replay, it may result to the car crashing or losing control during the replay. Therefore not being able to perform like the recording and finish the race.
            (To start Macro function, first set Macro action. Then Click "Apply" in Macro Main Window. The "Shortcut" in Start Replay.
            Key to Hide is to hide Macro interface.Which can save system resources.
            When Macro is working, click Exit and Macro will stop all work.
            "Shortcut" do not use it simultaneously.)

New "Digital Pad Setting" function is added :

With the old Trio Linker drivers, when the user use the digital pad, the analog function would also be affected. This would not be a problem for most of the games, as both of the digital pad and the analog stick are used to control the movement of the character in the game. But recently a customer points out that in a PC game, the left analog stick is used to control the movement of the character while the digital pad is used to control the pointer of the menu. The problem is that when the user move the pointer of the menu, it would let the character in the game move to the same direction.

This new driver version 3.20 has a "Digital Pad Setting" option. User can set it to "Advance" mode so as to solve the above problem. User can also set to "Normal" so that the driver would work as the old driver (v3.163).
