Redownloading this app again, because I really do love it. I'm just hoping the on screen button layouts can be operative again? On controller layouts are very important for emulators to have. Without that feature,it kills the fluent gameplay! So please fix this issue... pretty please?! Five star rating and a very good review and recommendation!

Not sure what's goign on but I can no longer move the control keys around on the screen. It doesn't save the control layout and forces the default. The menu only says "reset" and pressing the back button undoes what I did. Can't play games using the default layout. It used to work fine. I had to reinstall it and now it's like this.

Button position is off when phone is in reversed landscape (upside down) position, and the changes I make to the control locations don't seem to save for landscape view. Other than that, it seems to work great, has save states, and can keep my game paused in the background for as long as I need.
