Mister core and joystick mapping

Unread post by funkycochise »

Hi,

I noticed that since a while, from version after 20200629 precisely, The core isn't able to load the joystick assignment previously saved
in /Config/inputs folder
So you need to configure each time you wanna use a specific core.

Regards.

Are you consistently using the same input device?

I have. I thought it was just me! I think the issue is not that the input config is not created (it is being created, I verified) but the fact that the core upon boot is not reading that config now for some reason. Maybe it would be best to report this on github.

EDIT: Actually I think I know what is going on here. You now have to press "A" to enable the controller each time you launch a core. If you have a config for this controller, after you press "A" it will load and use that config. But, after each core load, you have to press "A" first.

This must be a new thing. An issue was opened for it here:

It's true, clicking on first button loads the setting for the controler it seems.
anyway its working fine, less straight forward, but I suppose it's to support different controllers at once.

So Issue is closed for me.
Thank you, eightbit for pointing the direction.

NP. I am not sure if it is possible but a better way around it (if it is possible) would be to detect VID and PID of the USB controllers instead.... so pressing A wouldn't have to be a thing each time.
