I do not think this issue is fixed for the Shield.

Can you tell me how many devices show up in the peripherals dialog in input settings? I think Android is reporting a virtual controller for player one. if you upload a debug log or screen shot I'll know for sure.

    • Version: Unknown
  • Sony Computer Entertainment Wireless Controller
    • Version: Unknown

That's the problem, Android is reporting the virtual controllers first. @da-anda found a solution: Map users in the order of last button press. I need a volunteer for this change, I can advise but might not be able to implement this for a while.

The function you need to modify is CGameClientInput::MapJoysticks(). Simply sort joysticks by time of last use. You will need to add this time parameter to the joystick object. I can help show where this should go and where it should be calculated.

Very Interesting.  I am going to try my Xbox 360 controller later tonight and see if the same issues happen, I'm assuming it will.   So technically for now, the nvidia shield is currently not supported due to the controller issue.

my TV running AndroidTV faces the same issue as the SHIELD. It also lists some virtual controller first. So not only the SHIELD is affect, but very likely many more Android based devices.

This is how to fix it. I'm able to advise if anyone wants to give it a try.

 This is way above me..  Maybe someone else can lend a hand until this gets fixed and the shield is usable with RetroPlayer again.
