Edit Layout on Nvidia Shield TV

Post by colibris79 » Sun Apr 26, 2020 10:39 pm

Hi,
I've been using Drastic in my tablet for a while and I love it. So recently I installed Drastic in my Nvidia Shield as well. I've been trying to edit the layout (to make the playing screen a bit bigger and the map one smaller) but I just can't find a way to save the layout. None of the buttons in my controllers (tried two of them) seems to do the "Exit/Save" function. I am using the paid version and this is the only thing I don't seem to be able to change. I have to force-close the app in order to restart it because I can't leave the editing screen. Is there anything I can do to fix this?
Thanks

With the official Nvidia controller I can edit it and save as long as I don't change the default buttons layout. But If I try to use any other controller or change the buttons setup of the Nvidia controller I won't be able to save the screen layout. Well, at least I have managed to save it :D

Drastic isn't fully optimised for controller-only use yet. I would recommend a USB or Bluetooth mouse if possible, on Android it acts the same as using a touchscreen.

I just tried on my Shield TV, and you need to find whatever button is mapped to Android's "back" button after making a change.

On my wired Xbox controller, this is the "Select" or "Change View" button. Specifically *not* the Xbox B button.
