Description

Game Name?

Project M Launcher

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

I successfully connected my GameCube controller to my phone via the following setup:
Samsung Galaxy Note8 <-> USB Type-C Male to USB Type-A Female adapter <-> GameCube Adapter <-> GameCube controller

I needed to re-authorize my device after unplugging the USB Type-C Male to USB Type-A Female adapter when emulation wasn't running. Restarting the app did not change this problem

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Enable GameCube Adapter for Player 1.
  2. Connect setup as stated above.
  3. Start game
  4. Authorize default USB device
  5. Exit emulation
  6. Disconnect USB Type-C Male to USB Type-A Female adapter
  7. Reconnect setup
  8. Start emulation again
  9. Observe the need to reauthorize USB device

What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)

Samsung Galaxy Note8 (SM-N950U)
Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
Octa-core (4x2.35 GHz Kryo & 4x1.9 GHz Kryo)
Adreno 540
6GB RAM (LPDDR4)
Baseband version N950USQS2BQK2
Kernel version 4.4.21
Android 7.1.1

Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files, savefiles, savestates)

App occasionally crashes while trying to allow USB device too

History

#1 Updated by ryanebola16 about 3 years ago

You'll need to deal with #10791 to test with the Project M Launcher.

#2 Updated by ryanebola16 about 3 years ago

And tested on 5.0-6243

#3 Updated by JosJuice about 3 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Invalid
  • Operating system Android added
  • Operating system deleted (N/A)

That's how Android works.

#4 Updated by ryanebola16 about 3 years ago

Are you saying we can't do anything about Android requesting permission for the same USB device every time it's used? And what about the occasional crashes when requesting permission to use the USB device?

#5 Updated by JosJuice about 3 years ago

Yes, that's what I mean.

I'm not sure why it crashes. That might be a valid bug.

#6 Updated by ryanebola16 about 3 years ago

This seems to address the USB device access issue: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/12388914/usb-device-access-pop-up-suppression

If the above link won't fix the problem then perhaps rename this issue to:
Android: Occasional crash during USB device access pop-up

  • Status changed from Invalid to New

According to https://stackoverflow.com/questions/12388914/usb-device-access-pop-up-suppression, this issue may be fixable so I'm reopening this. Feel free to close if you're positive it's not.
