Emulator Issues #12067
[Feature request, Android] Allow manual configuration of device orientation before game start
Currently Dolphin will boot in landscape mode on Android and there is no way to achieve other orientations without the use of third-party orientation control tools. While I understand there are legitimate reasons for removing the automatic rotation behavior, it would be nice to be able to set the desired orientation before starting emulation. I personally use reverse-landscape as I use my volume keys for the L and R triggers.
As for UI, this could probably be added as an option in the base Graphics Settings menu. It might be interesting to have on desktop, but I personally don't see a reason for it.
This sounds like a reasonable request, especially considering how you're using your phone's exact orientation. Drivers are a bit wonky so autorotate being disabled is a necessity for stability, however giving users the ability to invert for your situation seems like it'd be worthwhile.

You can current configure this when a game is running, though I do agree that it would make sense to also make it available before starting a game (like with essentially all other settings that currently only are available when running a game).
