    Hi guys, I'm trying to run the dolphin emulator through my vita. But I can't get it to pick up my vita as a controller (dolphin emulator/controllers/port1/standard controller/configure)

    No matter what, it's just not picking my vita controls up.. it's remote streaming to my vita via moonlight, but non of the controls do anything.
    Moonlight works fine on steam games, can use my vita controls on them with no problem.. but not for the dolphin emulator.

    I can even load the dolphin emulator on my pc, straight from the moonlight app on my ps vita. But when it comes to the controls, nothing is happening. I've tried refreshing/selecting different options etc, but it's not picking it up.

    Any ideas?

    This is a video guide I followed, the part where he tests the controller and it picks it up... that is where mine does nothing.

    Tried his way ^ and also tried the direct dolphin way (adding the dolphin emulator to the GeForce shield, and starting dolphin straight up from my vita via moonlight)

    Just tried installing vitasick (as I did not have that installed)

    Anyway, that doesn't work either. It shows the vita as a controller device, but using the
    'game controlleroptions/properties/test'

    On that test option, the button inputs still do nothing. Tried to calibrate too and that did nothing also. While connected as a vita controller, I also tried to re test it in the dolphin emulator... but the button inputs still do nothing.

    Not sure why I can't get it to work.


    Edit: Ok, after messing with my Bluetooth devices and reinstalling the plugin, I finally got Vitastick to work (yay) it will now recognise my ps vita inputs on the test screen.
    Which is great, sadly it does nothing for the dolphin emulator.. as I would still need to close Vitastick to start up moonlight.

    Tried to run moonlight again, and still the same problem.. does not recognise my vita button inputs at all (can't even manually change them)
    Yet on the guide video, it recognises his vita controls first time no bother, and seems the same for a lot of other people in the youtube comments.

    No idea why I can't get mind to work :( really want to play mgs twin snakes on my vita.
