Desmume Not Detecting Controller (2024)

1. Controller support? (Page 1) / Support / DeSmuME forums

  • So I plug in my Xbox Controller, load up DeSmuME, click Config > Control Config, but when I move a stick or press a button on the xbox controller, nothing happens, it acts like there is no button input. All other emulators and games work just fine with the controller, so it's likely not something with the controller or drivers.

  • I had this issue as well, and here's what worked for me.I enabled Switch Pro Controller configuration in Steam, and added Desmume to Steam as a non-steam game.Then when I launch Desmume through Steam, the controller works perfectly.I also had to make sure my desktop controller configuration in steam was set to a default gamepad layout, because for some reason that's what it uses when desmume is focused (not the game-specific config)

3. New XBox controller not working for NDS emulator - DeSmuME forums

  • 2 aug 2022 · My computer has Windows 10 version 21H1 installed and the controller I'm trying to config with the NDS emulator is the "Xbox Enhanced Wired ...

  • Howdy, I've enjoyed playing the NDS emulator for a long time, but recently I bought a new "XBox Series X EnWired Nebula" controller and when I try to config that controller to the buttons of the DeSmuME_0.9.11_x86, it acts funny on me. For instance, when I press B for the B button, it registers it as Space and skips down two buttons to the Y button, and when I press L for the L button, it shows up as control with a red background. It's like the latest NDS emulator can't handle the newest Xbox controller. My computer has Windows 10 version 21H1 installed and the controller I'm trying to config with the NDS emulator is the "Xbox Enhanced Wired Controller" supplied by "PowerA". I know I'm repeating myself here, I'm just giving out as much information as I can. If you have any ideas for this problem, that would be great. Thanks in advance.

4. Switch Pro Controller Problems (Page 1) / Support / DeSmuME forums

  • 8 mrt 2023 · Hi,. I am having trouble using my Switch Pro controller with the emulator. I have launched it through Steam and it is detected; that is not ...

  • Nobody knows why this happens. These rumors have been driving me crazy for years. I can't make it happen, myself. If you want to be a hero, you can find a programmer, install visual studio, and debug it. If you can repro it outside of steam, that would help simplify matters (maybe 100% of people with this problem have been launching it through steam and none of them ever told me, that's just how it is sometimes). I think what's happening is that we're turning input commands to WM_USER+X messages some other junk on the system is sending those, too. I would blame hotkey managers and stuff, but steam's involvement is interesting. That's just the kind of thing that would do it. Now that I type all this out, it makes me wonder if we could put some kind of a "cookie" in the WM_USER messages that no other program would know to do. Can you download a "nightly" build and see if the problem repros there (with and without steam)? If you can repro on a nightly build then I'll push a commit that does the "cookie" thing and we'll see if it fixes it.

  • I'm using this gamepad http://www.amazon.co.uk/Official-Xbox-C … B004JU0JSK and when I'm trying to enter the controls on the config windows it's not registering them, as if I'm not pressing anything.  The pad is working fine with games like Skyrim, Dishonored etc so I'm not sure it's a problem with the controller itself.  Is there a special driver I need to install or something?  Using 0.9.10 btw

13. Controller stops working after using wifi version - DeSmuME forums

  • Is there a way to fix this? Whenever I use the wi-fi version emulator and then go back to using the non wi-fi(because it has better performance) the controller will stop working. I'm not exactly sure how I get it to work again but I just do random stuff like unplugging the controller, plugging it back in, deleting config files, deleting .sav files etc. It just seems to randomly start working again. It's extremely frustrating. By the controller not working the emulator just simply won't recognize it at all. Even trying to change the controls doesn't work. If I plug a different type of controller in it will work, but then that controller stops working to after using wi-fi.
