Hi, this port is awesome!

I play it on my galaxy s7 just fine.

And I have it installed on my Sony android tv
One problem though:

I can't figure out how to configure my game controller... I want to remap the buttons for "accelerate" and "reverse" I can highlight them and they are blinking but I can't change them.

Am I missing something here or is it a bug?

Best regards
Peter

Were you able to select your controller from Controller Settings? Does the default mapping work?

Yes I can select Logitech cordless rumblepad 2, from controller options, and the default settings works.

I would just like to remap accelerate and reverse, from "up", "down" to "R2" , "L2" because the default mapping is impossible to control.

I can't remap them, but I don't know if it's a bug or if I'm just not doing it right...

This version is good although users of iPhone and iPad do not have RVGL. I unfortunately have an iPhone and an iPad and not Android and my mom does not let me change to Android.

It seems that RVGL will never have an iOS version :oops:

Customizable/draggable buttons: I'd love to see such a thing: pause button is too small, rear view is too far away from the arrows to be used when needed (also rear view is a meme in all rvgl versions).
I would also like to see this. The game runs great but not being able to move/resize the buttons the way I want to suit my screen etc. makes playing with the touchscreen uncomfortable for me.

Help! I have Black screen pls help! :pout:
I had this issue with my tablet though I fixed it by editing the rvgl.ini and disabling the shader renderer

Another issue I had also relates to using the PS4 controller where I cannot map the dpad for turning (analog stick still works) the controller does function and all the other controls can be remapped, just not to the dpad. The dpad does work on the input name menu to rotate the wheel so it definitely is being detected in-game there at least.

Also pressing the backspace on the on-screen keyboard when prompted to enter name for some reason loops the backspace so I can't input anything without it getting removed (Can still navigate through the menus) and regardless of if a controller is connected or not. There doesn't seem to be a way to stop it apart from restarting the game.

A similar issue has been posted here: Android PS4 Controller. I'm continuing the discussion in that thread.

Does updating to the latest build 18.0731a fix the shader renderer?

This has been reported a number of times. Unfortunately the cause is still unknown...

Sadly no, settings shaders to 1 causes the black screen again. Note this is when running the game on an amazon fire 7 (2017) [Specs]

The device has a Mali-450 as does the other user with the black screen. The same issue was reported from a Mali-400 user. Sadly, there were no errors at shader compilation (in the previous users' logs), so it's hard to guess what's going wrong.
I suggest you to try disabling some of the more complex effects and try again. In rvgl.ini, set:

Code: Select all

EnvFlag = 0
MirrorFlag = 0
LightFlag = 0
Does the shader renderer work now?

Sorry that i haven't replyed to you in a while, the error messages do not appear but the game is still black in my screen, however, the rvgl.ini file doesn't appear i go in the files. The game works in older versions before the shaders were the selected option

Try adding an empty file named .nomedia to rvgl's folder. That should tell music players, gallery apps etc to ignore it.
