Scrolling and autorun for BlackBerry PRIV QWER keyboard

Post by oakakaemmy » Sun Mar 06, 2016 1:46 pm

The first time I was playing my DraStic emu. I noticed my directional keys stuck. Than I noticed it when I swiped my thumb across my keyboard the movement function triggered a keybinding for the directional pad. Is there any way to control this in game so I can use my external QWER keyboard for BlackBerry PRIV?

The PRIV is an Android phone.

Have you set up keybindings in the External Controller section of Settings?

Yup, when I bind the directional keys it still happens.

If I can clarify it will only take a sec.
The Keyboard is set up like the Classic I heard.
So when I slide my thumbs on the QWER keyboard the character starts traveling in the direction and gets STUCK.
I'm almost ready to buy a PS4 controller but If you guys could help get my QWER keyboard directional keys unstuck when i swipe my thumb, nice; or else I'll try the gamepad.

[edited] Yest the external keys are bound to the QWER keyboard on my Priv, sorry.

Seems the PRIV keyboard acts like a touchpad, and the events it creates are currently not filtered out, but interpreted as if you were using an analog left stick.
Will try to fix that for the next beta.

Edit:
Just uploaded a new beta, that hopefully fixes it.

Holy Guacamole! I've got to try this with my Pokemon!
Thanks Lordus

[edit:] Solved: Scrolling no longer triggers when i slide my fingers on the BlackBerry Priv's "QWER"
Keyboard! I'll upload a link for the footage as soon as i have time to record some live game play!

Thanks,
