Button spamming.
« on: March 06, 2012, 10:50:56 PM »
Sorry, i dont mean to spam the boards, but I just experienced a quite frustrating issue. Playing Mario party 3 Minigames sometimes requires you to repeatedly press a button in usual to gain momentum or speed, but I've noticed that only so many touches are  recognized in a given amount of time. Is this simply the nature of a touch screen, or is it an issue with the app only recognizing inputs that are at least "t seconds" apart? I suspect it's not  app but the lack of physical buttons. But in the case it is the app i feel like this would be good to know.

In a way it is the app's fault.  By pegging the CPU to run the processor-hungry emulator, threads that handle input often find themselves sleeping longer than usual, which limits the number of events that can be registered in a given amount of time.  As the emulator is better optimized, it won't be as CPU-intensive, and this problem should improve over time.  Additionally, I am adding a "turbo" feature to buttons at some point in the near future, which could be used in cases where rapid button-pressing is necessary.
