[RVGL] Controls temporarily unresponsive with Dualshock 4

Unread post by maxigaz » Sun Mar 17, 2019 11:58 am

On the Linux version of rvgl 19.0301a, I've noticed that controls become unresponsive now and again while playing with a recently purchased Dualshock 4 V2. I don't have this problem with the same gamepad in other games I've tried.

It seems like the problem occurs in certain parts of the maps I tried. For example, if I start a single race or a practice session on Supermarket 2, control is always lost in the outside area (between the two doors). On Botanical Garden, there are multiple areas like this one, such as near the fountain in reverse mode of the circuit. (If I go the normal direction of the circuit, the chances of triggering the issue is much less.)

When the control is lost, by the way, two things can happen: the car keeps moving forward and the gamepad becomes responsive again, or I get stuck in the same place (such as hitting a wall) and then if I bring up the pause menu with Esc, I can't even navigate with the keyboard as the arrow keys and Enter become unresponsive inside the game as well (so I have to quit with Alt+F4).

I also have a wireless Xbox 360 controller, but it doesn't have these problems at all with rvgl.

I haven't come across any errors in the terminal output or any log files, so let me know if you need any further information.

Could be that the game is missing mappings for your controller. It doesn't sound possible that controls are affected in some areas of the track though. I'd like to see the generated log file (profiles/re-volt.log) as it would have information about your SDL2 version, the controller GUID and currently used mappings.
