A method to use for mapping VR-Box joystick with shooting game input controls that include key mapping of every joystick key from the joystick with the game itself. Key mapping was observed and then the source code keys we’re mapped with the joystick keys. The joystick holds major 4 buttons with a 360-degree moveable joystick with 2 supporting keys making them total of 6 keys. In this paper we will discuss mapping of Google Virtual Reality plugin with First Person Shooting plugin. The integration of joystick with VR-Box helped the gameplay even more controllable. The joystick keys are responsible for invoking key features of game as it can be connected via Bluetooth with the mobile headset to ensure long range wireless connectivity. The device converts the keys triggered from joystick to enable the features inside the game.
