    IMPORTANT NOTE FOR HID USERS:

    We've just decided to make controller_patcher an optional extra. From here on out; it'll be disabled on the nightly builds. If you rely on a HID controller - such as a GameCube controller adapter, set of Joy-Cons, DualShock or other non-Nintendo controller - you may want to hold off on updating to the latest nightly until we finish writing a replacement (it shouldn't take long). Alternatively, you can compile your own RetroArch to re-enable controller_patcher - simply append ENABLE_CONTROLLER_PATCHER=1 to your normal make command.

    On the plus side; I think this might fix retroarch.rpx; and should eliminate an awful lot of the more esoteric DSI errors. I'll update this post as more information becomes available.

    (EDIT 1: Changes merged. The next set of nightlies will not contain controller_patcher.)

    We think it'll make it better, at least. There's always more work to be done on this sort of thing.

    Ya, I did noticed the black frame insertion on the ps3 port works but not Wii U. Although Im having trouble with that ps3 online updater not working. Wii U updater works fine though. Both consoles have their negatives.

    Will this fix the problem of other homebrew apps kicking you back to the Launcher after you quit RetroArch until you reset the Wii U?

    Can you get me a stack trace? Just take a photo. There shouldn't be any HID code left at all; so that's confusing.

    Controllers are broken in the latest nightly, whatever input get registered as "up" except for the analog sticks.
    The only way press the button A for example and that doesn't go up; is tap B then quicky press A

    EDIT: Don't tell me that I need reconfigure all my customs core button mappings :/

    Did anyone find a workaround the stuttering sound and gameplay issues on racing games whilst using MAME 2003/9? Or is it supposed to stutter?

    probably are playing a game that the wiiu can keep up with speed, you know wiiu cpu is preety slow so any demanding game will be slow or have issues, stutering means it cant keep up.

    I thought so...

    But should it happen on 80s games like Outrun or Powerdrift?

    I tried again and same thing happened. I was loading up f-zero snes. So it didn't say HID, but it mentions controls. Don't know what this is.

    There shouldn't be anything different... does it work if you rename the config files and test the stock ones?
    I have an idea regarding this one, let me try and reproduce the issue and I'll get back to you. I'll use the 2017-12-02 nightlies.

    Ok, I know what produce the issue, it's when a HID controller is connected on the Wii U, I have a wireless keyboard and GCN adapter in the console front ports, when I remove them RA works correctly again.

    People with snes9x crashes; fix is on the way. That one was my fault.
