Crappy emu I'm using an LG G3 and receiving a lot of audio problems, also needs an option to permahide the toolbar as games like Legend of Zelda require constant redirection on the d-pad and sliding down and up makes the toolbar disappear and reappear and it messes with the screen. Would like a refund. Edit: The sound settings did nothing to clarify the sound, and as far as the touchscreen, it's not just the middle of the screen, it's anywhere on the screen that isn't solely dedicated to a button. Perhaps creating a customizable dead zone parameter around each button might help avoid accidental screen gestures.
