Not too optimistic about this one either, looks like its mostly Adreno Profiler updates rather than anything useful (although it does mention UBO's which may affect dolphin).

I haven't read the whole thread so this may be a useless suggestion, but there is a tool called Display Orientator for android that may help override the behavior as a workaround.

Hello fellow users I am also experiencing this issue and I want to help get it fixed. I just flashed the drivers milkhail found and they don't work sadly. I have a second generation Nexus 7 and I have TWRP installed. Sadly i'm not a programer but I'll be happy to test any potential fixes you find.

Supposedly recent builds of dolphin fixed the display orientation bug on the v66 driver on an Adreno 305:

Also curious about this as Conker's Bad Fur Day only runs on Gles2Glide

@puppy that's exactly what I'm running into as well.
Conker's Bad Fur Day on Nexus 5 seems to be unplayable with Mupen64plus, since only Glide gives the needed performance...
Edit: I just flashed the zip from newbielink:http://forum.xda-developers.com/google-nexus-5/general/updated-driver-binaries-qualcomm-adreno-t2629123 [nonactive]
and it worked perfectly fine!
Finally I am able to play Conker :-)

That's great! I'm not experienced at that kind of advanced work, but it seems like that could at least hold the key to fixing the problem for those of us who would rather not flash those drivers. Great find.

Do you know if there are any new drivers for the nexus 7 2013?
Edit:
Flashed the above one (for nexus 5) and it works! Time to finish Majora's mask!

Will this be fixed without us having to flash drivers? I'm not comfortable doing that and weirdly enough, I've had trouble finding a plain English step by step guide for doing it. Also, i'm not prepared to lose any files on my phone.

While Qualcomm staff tries to fix their bug, I have modified some custom virtual pad profile I downloaded here to play Majora's Mask on portrait, uploaded by a user named Tripod. (default action)

It's not the ideal way, but at least the Nexus 5 has enough resolution to fit the N64 resolution several times, even in portrait.


This is the original layout by Tripod
http://db.tt/7gbiQorE

As I only changed the button positions, I post the pad.ini

Code: [Select]
[INFO]
name=Default Action Portrait for MM
version=0.1
about=Portrait for MM
author=Tripod, Modified

[MASK_COLOR]
CUp=57546
CRight=16737116
CDown=8692181
CLeft=5925663
A=32582
B=4934475
L=16757760
R=7020361
Z=4368108
Start=11820381

[FPS]
info=fps
x=50
y=100
numx=27
numy=50
rate=15
font=Mupen64Plus-AE-White

[ANALOG]
info=Analog hat
x=30
y=75
min=1
max=55
buff=55

[BUTTON1]
info=CUp - CRight - CDown - CLeft
x=80
y=70

[BUTTON2]
info=A - B
x=85
y=90

[BUTTON3]
info=L
x=0
y=50

[BUTTON4]
info=R
x=0
y=60

[BUTTON5]
info=Z
x=65
y=100

[BUTTON6]
info=Start
x=40
y=90


This is how it looks



Also I have a question, In case Qualcomm released a final version of the drivers with the issue solved, ┐How would it reach users with un-rooted devices? With the next Android update, I suppose?

Thanks artorias.

I would think that the various device manufacturers would need to release an OTA update for non-rooted users to get the fixed drivers.  Unfortunately such an update would probably vary from model to model and carrier to carrier, so it's by no means a guarantee.

It is very unlikely that mupen64plus ae will ever implement a workaround for Qualcomm's bug.  None of the usual developers here knows what causes the bug, let alone how to make a workaround for it.  The only way we could fix it is if some new developer jumped in who knew how to fix the problem, or some knowledgeable user pointed us to more technical information about the cause of the bug so we could fix it.  Right now development on the project is almost nil, so this really isn't at the forefront of anyone's mind unfortunately.

Thanks for the info, littleguy!, and for the great job in Mupen!

Let's hope for a Qualcomm update or a reboost in the MupenAE project.
