Well, afaik my ds4 controller worked perfectly with no issues, I tested Zelda breath of the wild yesterday and it worked fine, I played like 30 minutes and everything went fine and no issues at all
There are two versions of the PS4 Controller from what I can tell the model 1 (your version I assume) which works fine and the model 2 (my version) which still has issues for now :)

Hi gary
I have problems pairing the xbox one controls, neither of them synchronizes me with the wiiu, a few weeks ago Microsoft released a control update to insider users and I made this update, it will be for this reason that they do not connect me with the wiiu .
the controls are like the ones you show in the video.
From what I understood from the news of the new insiders firmware update, the update changes the controllers to use Bluetooth LE, effectively turning them into Series S/X controllers. Haven't confirmed, but I don't imagine they can simultaneusly support the current classic Bluetooth and the new LE connections. Likely means your controller has been rendered incompatible until Bluetooth LE support is added.

I'm actually using a model 2, and for today, I still have no errors at all, I've been playing Zelda all morning and no issues

Really? can you try the Controller in Retroarch? for me the Controller syncs and desync's constantly, you can tell because the notification pops up in the bottom left corner of the Retroarch UI

I have to download retroarch first, if I test the controller with it I will tell you, however I've been testing it this morning with botw, Mario kart 8, some VC games and the controller is working perfectly
Oh and btw I own two ds4 controllers, both are the same model and both worked perfectly

Thanks, I guess it could just be my Controller since I tried Shovel Knight and Wind Waker and my Controller messes up in both those games as well.

Well a few minutes ago I tested wind waker HD and it's perfect as well, do you have another controller you could test?

Do you have to run the app and/or resync the controller every time you boot?
You need to sync the controller only once, even if you reboot the console.
You need to run the app every time you reboot if you want to reconnect the controller though.

    it's better to learn on your own, it goes much faster than the snail pace they teach you at in school

  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembly is actually great, gets you to run everything about 80% faster than C massaged code
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembler syntax is dead easy, but "how to put pieces together" logic requires to have in mind the original idea, and the CPU layout, and that's like double the work of C stuff. It's best to write C first, add some unit tests, then go assembly, then run the unit tests
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    it can run faster than compiled code, but modern compilers are really good at optimization and you need to be even better at assembly to do a better job
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    with that all your assembler base will actually work

  • Coto @ Coto:
    even on embedded systems, without a damned debugger
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    syntax is easy but the code is hard to read, you can't look at a piece of code and expect to understand it without looking at all the code around it to see how it all works together so it takes much longer to read the code, it takes longer to write it too because what might be 1 line of code in C might be 20 lines of assembly
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the language is very simple to understand (because it's barely a language at all) understanding how all the instructions work together to form a whole is another matter, in general it's such a pain to work with that i would never recommend it unless you have a need for it. don't listen to this guy and learn assembly just because you want to make your code run faster, you are wasting your time, but if you run into a situation where your code isn't fast enough even after you enabled -Ofast and you NEED it to be faster, then you can consider assembly

    @Coto have you tried -Ofast btw? ;)

    llshit points as usual you make. Not only because you have no idea what you're talking about, but also because there is proof (both i've seen and maintained) in regards to C and hand-written assembler code, and the speed gain is simply over half the framerate.

    or SnemulDS's C CPU Core vs SnemulDS SnezziDS ARM core. The first running at about 45% (half the speed) vs ~105% (full speed)
