    Hey, so I was trying out the dolphin Emulator and attempting to play Nightfire 007, and couldn't get the emulator to detect the sticks. I tried using the DInput and XInput modes but neither of those recognized button presses. What am I doing wrong? This isn't the only game/emulator I've used that doesn't detect them. In fact, none do so far. Weirdly enough, the right analog works with Mouse input, as it should, but not when playing a game. Any suggestions? I know I probably didn't give enough info but I'm not really sure where to start or what the issue is.

    It could be that your unit is faulty, in general. When did you buy the GPD WIN??

    I just bought it last week. It's the older model but I ended up getting it to work with Dolphin Emulator. I assume emulators/games need to check for Joystick input?

    I got it to work. You need xpadder. It cost 10 dollars but it makes any game recognize the buttons/triggers/joysticks. Totally worth it.
