Keyboard and mouse/gamepad overlay for gaming

DeX needs to have a touch overlay built into it so you can assign mouse/KB or gamepad input to on-screen functions. This already exists on a number of different devices, including a couple of apps for third-party controllers, so it's not like Samsung can't do it.

 

Unfortunately, most good options on the Play Store or apk market either require root or require a third-party controller to be connected. Having this as a native part of OneUI/DeX would be the ideal. It would definitely go a long way toward completing the DeX experience and legitimizing mobile gaming.

 

Imagine being able to sit down with DeX and play CoD: Mobile with a keyboard and mouse. The experience would be almost indistinguishable from desktop gaming.

i use this

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.github.sds100.keymapper

It's from an XDA member.

Google XDA and look there. Playstore is full of junk mostly. You'll also definitely find others there that may have a better solution than what i've suggested.

i use it to toggle flashlight and auto rotate on my phone. But i believe the app is designed more for what you need.

That, unfortunately, has nothing to do with the topic at hand.

I'm talking about mapping keyboard and mouse/controller functionality to on screen controls in games.

Having just purchased a huge screen tablet (s8 ultra) I can't play games on such a huge screen since my fingers aren't 10 inches long. There needs to be a solution for this as it makes gaming impossible in every game that exists. Please Samsung, make this an option. Dex needs a keymapping solution like my Asus ROG 5 has. It's so easy. C'mon lads

Great point! I hadn't even thought about the larger Tab devices. It's already slightly awkward to play on my Fold 4's unfolded screen, let alone the gigantic Tab S8+!
