What is this?

This is developed by Langerhans, who you can find on the AYN Discord and they’ve put together an awesome tool here for the AYN Odin 2.

Features

  • Quick settings tile for switching the controller style with user selectable option for which styles to cycle through
  • Quick settings tile for switching the L2/R2 style with user selectable option for which styles to cycle through
  • Single press home button setting to allow going to the home screen by a single press of the home button
  • Display saturation setting. This is set immediately and will be applied after a reboot as well. Note that it takes a few seconds after you first unlock the device to apply.
  • Per-app overrides for both controller style and L2/R2 style settings. These will be applied and reverted automatically based on the current foreground app
  • Per-app overrides for performance and fan modes. They function just like controller style overrides.

Install

It’s a very easy install. Head to the OdinTools Github page (https://github.com/langerhans/OdinTools) and install the latest release. That’s it, once you open it, you can start to change settings. To get the quick settings tiles to show, slide down from the top, and click the pencil icon on the right. Scroll down and you should see Controller Style and L2/R2 mode tiles. Hold and drag them above to where you want to get them to show. Let’s go over all the features.

Settings

You get a quick settings title for switching the controller style, so between Retro, Xbox or Disconnect mode essentially. This is pretty important as there’s some apps where you’d want the Xbox mode for the controls to work, or at least for the buttons to be in the right place. Xbox Gamepass is one app, I don’t play it, but I’ve been told it helps with Call of Duty and so on. We can take it a step further as well with per-app settings, which I’ll talk about in a bit. 

Next up in a quick settings tile for switching the L2/R2 mode, which you can do between analog, digital and both. People using Daijisho will know that the recommendation was to set it to both so the triggers work in Daijisho. This will also fix Yuzu not liking digital triggers.

A quality of life change here, but you can enable it so that when you press the home button once, it goes to home, instead of a double press, which is usually daijisho for most people. 

You can adjust the display saturation with a slider, and it applies after a reboot, which is nice for those that aren’t happy with the default saturation.

Per-app Settings

Lastly, as I mentioned before, we have the per-app settings for controller style, L2/R2 mode, Performance Mode and Fan Mode. What does this mean exactly? Well, you can set certain apps to use certain controller styles, L2/R2 mode’s, Performance Modes or Fan modes when they boot up, and then it reverts when they close. I mentioned it before, but one easy example is Yuzu – set the triggers to use Analog so that they work properly and you might want to use the High Performance mode with the fan on Smart for Yuzu. Or, you can change controller style to Xbox for Game Pass, or for a game like Honkai Star Rail.
