GPD Mapper profiles missing
« on: November 26, 2018, 11:10:45 pm »
That's mostly a question for @skelton. Since i have some old games, with no gamepad support, i am using a lot the GPD mapper, and it's working fine. But here is what's happening: After creating so many new profiles i went to play some old games i didn't played in a while but had their profiles created some time ago. Oddly enough their profiles were gone. I created them again, but other games lost their profiles. Is there any kind of limit for how many profiles we can create? I know that with Tincore it will save them into different files, but the GPD mapper handles them the same way?

I think GPD mapper saves them in a file, I don't remember where right now, but I don't think it has a limit, but not sure, because I rarely used the mapper.

Any hints about where should i search? Maybe the system or data partition? I remember from the G5A days that once you said that the GPD mapper isn't just a apk, but a service. Something like this, right? If they keep disappearing guess i will just stay with Tincore which is more reliable.

Yeah, in the case of XD is too, in fact it was close source and I had to take it from stock to put it into legacyrom. It was in androidpolicy.jar and framework.apk but I guess the profiles should be stored somwhere in data partition, but no idea where to be honest, I also used Tincore.
