  • Quadriplegic Gamer Calls For Custom Button Remapping In Console Games - Evil Controllers

    The call of Chuck Bittner and his request for action to re-map controller buttons

    Chuck Bittner has spoken. His call to action to access the technology to re-map buttons on today's great games has not gone unheard. Bittner is a Quadriplegic "Able Gamer" who is frustrated by the lack of attention that Developers, Publishers and Hardware creators have given to this community. A community that is filled with fans and competitors who will be able to participate on the same level and beyond if given the proper access to that technology. Evil Controllers has a great relationship with Randy "N0m4D" Fitzgerald, who is probably the most famous "Able Gamer" in the world. When Infinity Ward first created Modern Warfare they included the ability to remap buttons to Randy's specifications with the GAME!!! Pop in the first MW and you can find the "N0m4d" button configuration under controller options. But when MW2 shipped no such thing was included with the game.. Bringing the question back to Mr. Bittner... Who should we look too? The Game Developers or the Hardware developers.. I think that it should be both, but if we can mass produce controllers that have the technology to re map buttons out of the box, it would solve the gaming publishing problem. We here at Evil have developed that technology and have built hundreds of controllers for "Able Gamers". But that tech is still pricey because we have to work with 3rd party from Microsoft.
