"Touchpad mouse mode" doesn´t work | always in "direct mode" (AMAZON FIRE HD 8 | 2020)

Post by Expello »

Hi,

My Hardware:
AMAZON Fire HD 8 (10th generation |2020)
OS: Fire OS 7.3.1.3 (Android 9 base)

I change the Control settings in "Touchpad mouse mode", but my touchpad is always in direct mode.

I tested the Playstore version, the latest stable (2.1.1) and the nightly build (2.3.0 git363-g80c29d1c94).

In GUI or in Game...always in direct mode. :(

Thanks for your help!

Hello, I cannot reproduce this issue as of yet on my Android devices.

If you don't care about losing your existing settings, added games and save game paths, could you try first to completely uninstall any ScummVM app on your device? *Or, even better* go through your device's Settings->app->ScummVM->Storage and delete any data (cached or otherwise) for ScummVM.

Because I do remember some time ago, having some weird behavior after switching back and forth between installing the Play Store version and the newer development ones. I am not sure if it was related to the touch control behavior though.

Hi,

thanks for your feedback.

I tried it the way you wrote, deleted everything before, then uninstalled an install the latest stable release but the problem remains.

If you like, you can have a look at it yourself, via Teamviewer or Anydesk Session.

I am at a loss.

I saw that you submitted this as a bug. That's good because someone with the device could try to reproduce the issue on their and give us more feedback.

I am not sure that a remote session would help me tell what's going on and, in any case, I'm thinking that I could compile a special build with debug prompts to give us some hints about what is going on. This might take a while though due to high work load.

That would be really fantastic, I am ready for all mischief. ;-)

I have now tested the retroarch scummvm core (2.1.1), here the touchpad mode works immediately. :D

But unfortunately bladerunner runs very bad, stuttering sound, graphic errors etc. :(

I hope there will be a solution for the scummvm app soon.
