Pic13: Now the service is launched.Select New profile from the Drop down menu


Pic14: Here is the new option select it.


Pic15: Now this is important step, after Selecting New just tap on the screen and now just take your gamepad or usb joystick and then press any button to make that button appear on screen.

That is For Example to activate the buttons we need to do mapping firstly, so first sttarting with Analog stick, Move it any side to activate that stick. after that the tincore will activate the button and the icon with "0" is appeared on the Screen.


Pic16: Since i had used Dual shock controller, i got another button it is also analog stick- im using it for aiming on that specific purpose.to activate it move that stick to any side and hold it, until you see the icon.


Pic17: Now to activate all other buttons just press and hold them until you see the icons on screen. now after activating all icons, just move them to the correct place- because their usual task is to tap the screen, so we must place those buttons above the game's orginal controls like "X" button above the Shoot Icon in game.


Pic18: Now that you have applied all buttons, in addition to touch screen, there are also some other options like gesture swie- it is basically used to switch weapons in games, also touch area centering and dpad moves helps in gaming. utilize them according to your will.


Pic19:  Now that you have applied all settings perfectly just tap on the screen and you will see the menu like in the below screenshot.you need to give a name to that profile and save it.


Here Give a name to that field and save that by clicking accept.


Pic20: Now your Tincore keymapper profile for that specific profile is activated.

Admitted that this is quite lenghty process but this is the only process to make all games work on android with usb joystick or any kind of genric joystick and it works perfectly.
 For psp games on android you dont have to do all these, there is a default section to map keys of joystick in controls schemes, just do that and you are free to play.

    1. To play modern combat 5, just launch the tincore app and start modern combat 5, choose "pre-gamepad" option. Every thing will automatically map. For L2 & R2, change the configuration mode to "press analog joy 0" for both L2 & R2. That's gonna make it work Cus it worked for me.

  19. I just saw your post but I understand the app already, anyways , I need help with my modern combat5. my generic USB controller has the axes inverted on the right analog stick (down is left, right is up, and vice versa) I want to use the gesture swipe but I don't know how to do that, I've been searching for a way to fix the inverted axes but it isn't working. Can you help me with how to set the screen swipe so I can make it swipe the screen left and right, up and down instead of it being inverted while using the touchpad.

    PS, I have tried re calibrating it but it still didn't work.If the axes can be remapped with an app, I think that would solve it.
