Description

It would be nice to have a live display of buttons, like some streamers already use as a third party tool, but integrated into Dolphin so that it shows the Wii buttons instead of the keyboard keys that I set for them.
I livestreamed recently and it was probably a bit confusing to see keys like WASD appearing in my keyboard display instead of up left down right. This would also solve the problem of having to find a key display program (I found only two for Linux, one didn't run and one isn't ideal) and the problem of having to record more than the game window, thereby increasing the video dimensions without much gain.
Showing a proper Wii remote tilt instead of my TFGH keys would also be much nicer to watch.
This feature could also help to verify speedruns (mainly human, maybe also TAS).

We already have this (mainly intended for TASing) under Movie > Show Input Display. Maybe you want something more graphical, though?

Yes, that display is not really great. The nunchuck position switches between words like "left" and numbers for angles all the time, the actual buttons are in different places and there is a lot of info that is unrelated to buttons. An actual display of the wiimote rotation, nunchuck direction and pressed/not pressed buttons as little images would be much nicer.

This should be fairly easy to do now with imgui.
