Joy-Con Improvements

We’ve made two key improvements that may improve connectivity & stability with Joy-Con™ controllers.

(Before we talk about Joy-Cons™, we should note that the game has always supported Pro Controllers! If you own a Pro Controller, and your goal is actually to get high scores rather than to goof around, the Pro Controller is your best bet! Overall, it seems to have the best gyroscope / tilt accuracy, connectivity, and smoothness.)

Firstly, we’ve added some code that adjusts when the IR sensor is activated and deactivated. If you play with a single right Joy-Con™ and have experienced issues where the cursor stutters during gameplay, this tweak MAY improve your experience. This change seems to make our experience slightly smoother, although it’s very difficult to measure how much better it is. Each controller seems to be slightly different depending on age, condition, battery levels, etc, so this is very difficult for us to test!

Secondly, we’ve added a new option that allows you to specify how the gyroscope handles drift. In the Controls menu, there’s a new “GYROSCOPE DRIFT MODE” option. If you experience lots of drift, try changing this to “tighter” and see if there’s a difference. If that makes it worse, try “looser.” In our experience, “tighter” seems to lead to slightly less drift, but it’s a subtle difference… We’re really curious to see whether or not this setting makes a significant difference for players!
