There are 3rd party apps that let you do that.


Also NVidia have no obligation to "fix" this when it isn't an advertised feature.





If anything the only people that have to fix things are gameloft themselves.

Just to let you know, Modern Combat 4 works just fine on the SHIELD. You can fire and ironsight with the R1/L1 buttons and sprint/crouch by pushing up or down twice on the left analog.

Try the Amazon App store, it's $6.99 there. The game runs very smooth and multiplayer works great as well.

Same issue. I bought modern combat 4 for my phone a while ago, but I see no way to get it onto my shield.

LADIES AND GENTS!

Root your shield and download "Device Spoofer". This app does as it sounds and spoofs google play into thinking your shield is whatever you want it to be. This makes it so you are no longer limited to games available to only shield. I have chosen to spoof the system into thinking my shield is an Xperia Play. Now I have access to all Gameloft games on the Google Play Market.

I'm still testing controller support while spoofing though. Don't get too excited.

I went ahead and grabbed MC4 off Amazon App store...annoyed to have to buy again, but I was real curious about it working on the shield, and it does work well. The control mappings could be a bit better though, but maybe they are working it.

I also would like them to update Wild Blood - since I paid for that sometime ago but want to play it on my shield.

I wish they would quit releasing everything as freemium...I hope they DO NOT release MC5 as free to play.

Think I found my first actual complaint with the shield and it's completely software related, possibly analog stick driver related. Could be corrected for in games, but after some testing all games are sort of struck by this.

You turn off mouse emulation and the analog stick movement in games is almost entirely static aside from the small zone in the center where you can make minor corrections. Movement hits "balls to the wall" max value very quickly IMO.

Nova 3 is brilliant with shield, a lot like a Halo 3 clone, I have spent many many many hours playing halo 3 so I was very excited. After playing for about 4-5 hours last night, one thing I could tell as being mostly different (aside from R bumper fire vs R trigger fire) was regardless of the sensitivity setting, the acceleration spectrum of the joystick isn't anywhere near the same.

You can turn down the look sensitivity and moving the stick quickly plateaued out on the speed you can look in any direction. You turn it up too high 3/5th-5/5th and it makes it impossible to make any kind of very sensitive minor correction. (no scopes) For me anyway, having it set to 1/5-2/5th sensitivity is perfect for the minor corrections in that game and getting those headshots with ease. But it makes making major corrections (looking behind you 180's) impractical. When playing on the xbox the more aggressive the stick movements the more it will accelerate your movement while still keeping minor corrections possible with minor movements. (I played halo 3 on 2/5th setting)

So, I went in and started checking other games, maybe it was just a problem with nova... and it's basically doing the same thing in every game. Spent a lot of time playing GTA 3 and same thing there as well. I didn't pick it up at first because for the other games I didn't have a good idea of "what right looked like" But other games like respawnables & shadowgun are sort of the same deal even though I didn't really have a point of reference for those.

I know it's not a simple thing to explain and ask for, and I bet a lot of people won't even notice it, or think it's just me. What is needed is the joystick equivalent to "mouse acceleration" in windows though.

EDIT: and there needs to be (or a bigger) deadzone in the center, that might actually fix both problems (push minor values outwards of the center some). I have found some analog stick ghost movements when my thumbs are off them.

I wouldn't mind trying order and chaos with controller support. If you use the device spoofer just to get the app downloaded then turn it off will the games run? The issue is mostly just getting them onto the device isn't it?

The spoofer is only needed for the play store, from that point onwards the app itself has very little it can do to prevent running on your device.

    Wow, that is awesome news about NOVA 3. When you say it works fine, you mean the controls all work? If so, downloading later when I get home.

    yea all the controls just works fine :laugh::good:

    Even when I turn mouse emulation off, I still can't use the stick to aim in modern combat 4. And I can aim in max payne, but I still can't walk around. If I use the dpad I can take about a quarter step with every directional press.

    OK so even though I haven't made any modifications, I went ahead and fastbooted the recovery images and my controller works fine now.

    For those interested, the reason you need to disable the virtual mouse is because it appears whenever a game reports that it didn't handle the right stick. Unfortunately, some games (like Gameloft games) handle the movement event, but then report they didn't (for those who like tech info, they are returning false from their input handler for right stick events) and that causes the mouse to appear and confuse the game. That's partially why it has the disable in the quick settings.

    I don't know why you had trouble with MC4 with the mouse disabled. Very strange. :-/
