    Is the software customization applicable for all different controller modes? Or does it only work for PC?

  • Yes.
    How can I set the Turbo function for Switch?
  • Go to the ‘Mapping’ section on the software, set the STAR button as Turbo button and confirm it.
    What is the difference between ‘Turbo’, ‘Burst’, ‘Auto Burst’ in the Mapping section?
  • The difference is the frequency:
  • Turbo: 15 times/second, with the button being pressed continuously.
  • Burst: 15 times/second, 3 times with each button press.
  • Auto Burst: 15 times/second, non-stop when the button is set and pressed once. You need to press and hold it to cease it.
    How can I set a chain of key combo to one button?
