NVIDIA Shield (Android 7.0) Xbox One Wireless controller support

Hello VirtualHere,

I'm a very satisfied user of your software but I have a little problem when using my NVIDIA Shield-Xbox One Wireless controller-VirtualHere-combo. Lot's of Steam games don't recognize my input. I think this is because the games think VirtualHere is a secondary input (if that's even possible) because when I launch Rayman Origins I have to navigate the menu's using my bleutooth keyboard connected to my NVIDIA Shield. When I start a game and press a button on my Xbox One Wireless controller player 2 becomes active. From that moment on I can navigate through the menu's using my controller, select a new game, and I can play single player using my controller. This works in Rayman Origins because it has local 2 player support, but offcourse most games don't. I can't use my controller with Ori and the Blind Forest, Mafia 3, Just Cause 3 and many more games. I think this a problem related to VirtualHere for Android specific because I also tried the exact same thing with my Steam Link and everythings works flawlessly (and I think now VirtualHere is the primary input). Is there something I can do to fix the problem on my NVIDIA Shield (because I prefer to use that device)?

Hi Amaradan, im glad you find virtualhere useful. Regarding the controllers unfortunately i dont have a shield to test with but i think you need to rename some dlls. See here https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/980575/gamestream/disable-contr...

Can't believe I didn't think of this myself. I was aware of the fix you sugested, thought I applied it, but I guess the NVIDIA Streamer Service was updated and included the dll files again. Thank you so much, it's just perfect playing with my Xbox One Wireless Elite controller on NVIDIA Shield using your software!

Could it be that this trick no longer works?

So after a long while I tried to use my Xbox One Elite Controller again on my NVIDIA Shield TV via Virtualhere. I know NVIDIA recently added support for wired Xbox One Elite Controllers but A. it's wired and B. there's no vibration. I much prefer the old method with Virtualhere. The problem is my controllers doesn't work in games. I can however succesfuly connect and make my controller vibrate via the Xbox accessory app.

Im not sure, i havent changed anything for a few months regarding the virtualhere app. Im pretty sure it sounds like nvidia has changed something to redirect the elite somehow on the client and messes up the games. I think it possible ask nvidia what they did and perhaps you can reverse it
