    I downloaded Gensoid from the marketplace recently and am wondering what type of button configurations everyone is using? I was hoping to play some Sonic the Hedgehog, but was finding it difficult because it is hard to hit the diagonal directions with the way I had the keys set up. Any recommendations or is it going to be too tough to play an action game like Sonic?

    This is the same obstacle I ran into. All action oriented games are near impossible to play with the d-pad and button layouts. The only games I could play half well were puzzle type games. Hopefully they will come out with a gamepad accessory that plugs into the micro-usb or uses BT soon.

    I contacted the developer of the "oid" emulators today and asked if he could implement an option where we can rotate the screen so we can play with the d-pad on the left (and the screen beneath the keyboard), if that makes sense.

    I tried out Jrioni arcade emulator today that had that option, and it worked great.

    That's a great idea.

    Something like that came to me today and I wondered why when I flip the phone landscape then upside down, it doesn't rotate all the way around. But having this done for the OIDs would make it a lot easier to play the games.

    Funny that you say this...I was just messing around with the setting in Gensoid and remembered it had a virtual keyboard. I selected it and the virtual keyboard appeared on the bottom-left corner of the screen with the actual emulator game screen shifted over the the far right of the droid's screen. I then opened the physical keyboard and programmed my A, B, and C buttons to its keys. I can say that the Sonic game I tested this on played very well. I'm excited about these emulators now!
