    slight off topic but speaking of sega forever, I hope they add controller config cause sonic works just fine but with no pause button and you can't move the player/cursor in phantasy star 2

    In terms of weather, it is similar.

    SEGA needs to fix their games as they're running with an abysmal framerate.

    Ninten-do what SEGA-won't. :P

    The built-in controls of my GPD XD don't work at all aside from, like the X button, which acts as start. A bit odd as it maps as a standard x-input device.

    If they are using Unity, as reported, I doubt there'll be a fix for it. Controller config in Unity is so poor that I had to write my own plug-in to get any form of configurable controls within Android in my game

    I'll have to recheck the links in my signature when I get back onto a desktop but no, they're not for the game I've made. The game is not yet released... I'm looking towards an October release of all goes well.

    Both of the joy con's are without any lag for about 2 seconds. After that it start to lagging.

    I have a HTC u11 with 4.2 Bluetooth.

    I have downloaded the app Bluetooth auto connect and set the joy con's to HID but I got only 2 seconds lag free.

    Hello guys, i've just creat an account for this topic.

    Like you all, i'm interesting about playing roms with joycon... But input lag are so fu**ing boring...

    All that's i've already tested (i own a Nvidia Shield Tablet) :

    - Connection joycons ( Left, right, and both of them) , input lags.
    - Tried with the bluetooth auto connector software. Same lags.
    - Formated it, just to try , lags..
    - Downgraded the tablet ( 7.0 to 6.1 ) => lags
    - Downgraded again ( this time, 6.0 to 5.1) => Guess what ... ? lags ...

    I think, in my opinion, we must wait about someone who can fix this (i mean, developers) .

    DualShocks and xbox controller had the same issues, And SixAxes came to the Android Store...

    but if someone has the luck to make them works before... Would be nice :)

    Sorry for my english, tried to do the best with my school memories :P

    Your English is not bad at all.

    From what I can tell the main thing to fix this would be to send the controllers a command when they connect. Not sure how one might do that without preventing Android from using the standard drivers.

    Thanks :)
    Yep, maybe it could fix this issue..
    I'have some ''news" , in a way:

    If i connect left joycon on bluetooth standard device config(not with a software so),and config the right joycon, no more input lag :o but the analogique don't works (tried with John SNES emulator).

    I'll continue to try things,here and their , and i'll let you know :)

    Well guys...

    Tried with a software (bluetooth connector) who can permarefresh controllers, and lag still here (maybe less, but it's maybe just my imagination).

    Tried with custome firmware (rooted tablet) who should upgrade bluetooth, but it's even worse...
    with EpsxE the lag is here (like 3,4seconds,worse than usual too).

    I also tried to connect my N.Switch with joycons connected on it , and then , connecting the switch to the tablet. No input lag, but it disconnect from the tablet after few seconds...

    No more clue, my brain is like a sponge :'(

    That really really sucks.
    I've been using my Switch Pro Controller on my notebook (Lenovo ThinkPad T510) with Ubuntu Gnome in wireless mode for RetroArch 1.6.7 and it works sooo well.
    But it lags like hell on all my Android devices. :(

    I also have a SNES controller from 8Bitdo which actually works fine on my Android devices (with 8Bitdo firmware 4.0 instead of 4.01) so it seems we have to prefer 8Bitdo over Nintendo. :/

    Thanks for all your efforts man!

    Yep joycon on computers run without any issues.. I've also read that bluetooth on Android has bugs since 6.0...
    By the way,the next upgrade will probably come out early 2018.. And it's not sure to fix bluetooth issues...

    Yes, thanks for efforts , And i hope you will post clues,idéal, or even a fix for it if you can.
    Naturally, if i found something, i'll post it here ;))
