Android: Input system rewrite: LG Dual screen virtual joystick no longer works
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
Ever since 5.0-18920, the virtual gamepad on LG dual screen phones is no longer being detected properly by Dolphin.
Here's my LG G8x running SSBM with the virtual gamepad showing.
The controls settings in 5.0-18881 shows the buttons and axes detected properly.
The gamepad works with the game and I can control the character.
However, since 5.0-18920, the buttons are no longer detected properly, pressing a button to assign it is not responsive.
The only thing that does seem to be working properly is the virtual left stick. The right stick is not detected properly.
I've made sure the correct virtualJoystick device for the device selection, but I've also tried with the "Create Mappings for Other Devices" box ticked.
The really odd thing is, the virtual gamepad works with the UI for the emulator itself. I can navigate the settings menus using the virtual joysticks, A and B buttons. But when trying to assign the buttons, they don't work.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Attempt to assign virtual gamepad buttons to Dolphin's button mappings on an LG dual screen phone.
