I will most likely contact them and see if we can get something changed... I would love for this thing to function correctly...

If the left key uses the ".com" key, then Desire Z users will have a problem. The Tab-key doesn't work in SNESoid.

An interim solution would be to put a dollop of adhesive to the contact. This should bring about a bit more pressure and make it work better.

I'm not sure if I'd contact them unless they were willing to ship out a new one in advance without replacing it. I'm just grateful either way. Can't wait until mine arrives in the mail!

So if you use keymapper to remap the keys, than it's permanently remapped, right? Kind of sucks to have to go into keymapper before and after each time you play a game...

true, but think outside the box! There are ways to automate it. Either using Gscript to run a script on the click of a widget or Tasker to automagically run that script when you open snes or any of the other emu's and then run the script to put it back to normal automagically when you exit said emu.

Interesting...what's the name of the key mapping app? I've tried searching in the market but it didn't come up...

Re-did my control pad. Hard piece of plastic, I'll probably spray paint the thing.

Works perfect now, great rebound. Also linked the keys to "wasz", no ".com" or "d" anymore.
