Emulator Issues #707
Controller profiles feature
I am absolutely in love with my keyboard as always. And as always I'm using
different keys for different games (for e.g. I'm using arrow keys + nums
for SouCalibur II and arrow keys + WASD for Resident Evil 0/Remake). So I'm
supposed to keep several pad.ini-s and Wiimote.ini-s to change them every
time I want to play different game which is not so comfortable.
I think it will be a good idea to add a controller profiles for different
games so once set and saved they can be stored and easily accessed by a
couple of clicks through the Dolphin interface. Or even better: different
controller configs can be attached to games themselves via the main window.
I'm not good at programming but I guess it's not a difficult thing to add
at all. And it can be pretty much useful.

Are the input plugins told the game that they are running on? If they are, then yes,
it would be relatively easy to have the kb/x360 plugin just check the game and
adjust its mapping accordingly. If not, there would need to be a "load
configuration" option in the pad config window, and possibly a "save config as..."
as well. Good idea, I know it was successfully implemented in input plugins in the
past, most notably N-rage's directinput plugin for n64 emulators. Config window GUI:
