Drastic virtual controls stop responding.

Postby Kwijibo » Thu Mar 02, 2017 12:32 pm

I´ve noticed that with certain games, Contra 4 and Resident Evil, for example, the virtual controls stop working sporadically It´s like the freeze for a moment although the game it´s running normally while that happens,
this doesn´t happen with the touch screen as it always responds well, so i don´t think it´s because of performance issues. Also i´ve noticed that when that happens
the buttons on my phone also stop working for a moment.

I would like to know if there is a solution for this issue. Thanks

What phone is this? There might be some third party/OEM software or setting that's causing this to happen.

If you try setting frame rate to manual and setting it to a high value, or turning off high resolution rendering, or using threaded 3D does it help? It could be that touchscreen processing is being squeezed out because of the emulator taking too much CPU time, and this might alleviate that enough to see a difference.

My phone is a dogee X6 pro. I tried to change the video configuration (I changed frameskip from 4 to 9) and I think the issue happens less times, but it still happens ocassionally, specially playing contra 4, which is not a 3d game. I also think that rebooting the app helps sometimes,
However the issue doesn´t go away entirely. How can I change the framerate? I don´t see any option to do it.

Thanks a lot for your response.

Just wondering, do the controls still stop responding if you're using a Bluetooth controller instead of the touchscreen?

I don,t have a bluetooth controller so i don´t know, but thanks for the suggestion.
I disabled frameskip and it seems to have further reduce the chance of the issue happening and when it happens the unresponsiveness sims to last for a shorter time.
