I can look into it, but MOGA has always been kind of a hack. The main reason it's a pain is because it was originally designed for Gingerbread, back before Android had real gamepad support. With how old it is, it uses a bunch of old APIs that get even more incompatible each Android version.

Assuming there's nothing wrong with DraStic itself, there's a chance that when we updated to target the latest version of Android, deprecated APIs were blocked/disabled.

That makes sense. I honestly didn't know that Moga had been around that long. It only makes sense that over time the old stuff would get left behind, especially considering Power-A's Moga line shut down completely not too long ago, cutting off updates.

Thanks for the info! :)

Also, not like MOGA support is very important anyway, because I think those can be used as a normal gamepad. So just configure it as a normal controller, assign the buttons to your heart's content, and that's it.
OBJECTION!

Maybe some can, but the Moga pocket isn't recognized by DraStic at all without the Universal Driver app, which isn't in the Play Store and is extremely old.

Even with the universal driver app, it can only be used for seconds at a time before it disconnects and has to pair again.

Moga support was broken in previous releases. It may work again in the next version.
