Unable to assign leftbutton & rightbutton (below shoulder buttins) [Fire TV]

Unread post by 7wells » Thu Sep 10, 2020 5:17 pm

Hello Huki and everybody,

I cannot assign the leftbutton & rightbutton (the buttons directly under the respective shoulder buttons) in RVGL on Fire TV. When I press them in the RVGL controller settings, nothing happens, despite in the controllermap app both are recognized and set. Can you help me, please? Thank you.

I don't understand which buttons you're talking about exactly. Can you pinpoint these buttons in the mapping string?
Is it the left and right triggers?

The original Amazon Fire TV game controller (that does not work with the Fire TV sticks - has nothing to do with RVGL - and is not sold anymore) works out of the box on the Fire TV box, i.e. without a need for the controllermap app; all buttons can be assigned in RVGL's settings and work as assigned.

So I assume that the other controller ('unu controller') is somewhat problematic. I will further look into this (and try yet another controller, too).
