The V21 version of which was released in a few days ago on the basis of updated should the request players made adjustments to mouse pointer speed.

Finally figured out how to download things from Baidu to rehost.

Not familiar with Mega so in case it asks for a key.

Can't try the latest firmware currently but anyone wanna give it a shot?
Should be the same firmware used with the revised models.

Nice find! I was waiting for the controller update today. Looks like you found it... I will give it a try after work.

Today was announced as the big GPD Win software's improvement day. Expecting some major updates here...

Installed it and it doesn't seem worse than V21 at least.
With the button location they aren't entirely useful but has R3 always worked as right click and L3 left click in the mouse mode?

Yes.
All 3 left buttons are left click, all 3 right buttons are right click. Been so since before I did the first upgrade.

Really? On my unit L3 was down and R3 was Break.  I do have one of the earlier units and I kind of just ignore those buttons but I know the firmware I used to have on it used pointless random keys.

In any case, these should be middle click. I can't think of one good reason that these can't be middle click just so we have one.

EDIT: Just checked and indeed L3 and R3 are both left and right click now. I know as a fact that one used to be down and the other break. I noticed it while watching a Youtube video and hitting one lowered YouTube's volume. I pressed them in a key mapper program and it said one key was down and the other was break, which just tells me that there is absolutely no reason that these keys can't be mapped independently of the other L and R buttons (I mean that's kinda obvious since they can and are different in the other joystick modes). Seriously can't think of a reason that we need 3 Left clicks and 3 right clicks and not have a single middle click. (I suppose L3 R3 works for one handed use, but that doesn't excuse 3 buttons that do the same thing and an unmapped start and select)

I installed this firmware, and it doesn't seem as stable as v21, and I don't like the acceleration as much.  Otherwise I don't see many changes.

I would like to downgrade to v21, but it doesn't let me.  Any advice on how to allow it to do so?

Another thing that would be really great is that these controllers actually do not properly emulate an Xbox controller in a crucial way - the 'Xbox' button is not emulated as an actual button in directinput.  So, while the button can bring up the XBox DVR functionality, that's it - it cannot launch Big Picture mode, cannot bring up the Steam overlay, and probably cannot bring up the menu screens in various emulators like PPSSPP that use it (unverified).

This is kind of a major oversight in my eyes.  If my Xbox pad sitting next to me shows 11 buttons in the built-in Windows testing application, and the GPD Win only shows 10, then we have a problem.

How can we get their attention on this to get it fixed?

Thanks!

For steam big picture, you can use XBstart button, it's a free software that let you add other features to the X-input (like big picture mod by typing the X box guide button).

I use it permanently.

Not sure what is different in my config from yours, but the xbox button has always brought up the steam overlay in game on my win, and when not using big picture mode on the desktop, brings the steam window to the front.  The only thing I remember doing is completely disabling the xbox app button integration and turned off game recording since its useless for any taxing games (the ones I WANT to record).  I believe if you enable the button in the xbox app, it steals the input from the steam client.

As for this firmware release, its a f**kin shame they didn't listen in regards to the L and R buttons.  Duplicated functionality and the unwanted acceleration simply continue to make the mouse switch more and more useless.  At least the new steam beta has pretty good support for non steam controllers now.  I use that for mouse mode on the desktop, and let steam handle button remaps for me in games.  Its an excellent solution.  I guess you have to be a relatively large company these days to implement things in a dynamic and useful manner.

I like/want the acceleration myself, 20/22 are better than 21 for me in that regard.

Unwatned? weren't people here asking for mouse acceleration?

I think hte basic setup they have is awesome, dinput mode is really usefull. My newer games work with xinput but ie aqaunox 2 from 2003 which I also have on mine also detects the controller out of the box in dinput mode. That's a really nice feature. XD

People here tends to think their own needs are universal ones. That's the problem.

For me mouse is perfect since GPD resolved that lag problem.

I'd love a tool where you can actually rebind the keys in mouse mode.

like analog to WASD instead of scrolling, dpad to arrow keys, ABXY to usual shooter layout like
A = Space (jump)
B = CTRL (crouch)
X = F (meelee attack or whatever)
Y = I (inventory or switch weapons)

Thank you for this reply.  It helps to get direct confirmation that someone else is having a different experience.

Your reply forced me to double check my config.  It turns out that while I did have game DVR off, it was still capturing the xbox button.  What a pain.  Thank you for making me check again; it works now.

I still believe that the directinput emulation, which shows a button for the guide button, as well as directinput mode (the slider), which also doesn't show a button for the guide button, should.  I would love to see GPD take this as a point of improvement.

Thanks again!

Good luck with that.  Despite tons of voices requesting non duplicated buttons in mouse mode, and just common sense (WHAT possible purpose can it serve to duplicate buttons in mouse mode, especially when they are adjacent to each other?!?!?) 3 firmware "updates" later, we still have a fundamentally crippled mouse mode.  If they wont fix something that significant, I doubt getting any functionality changed or updated on a single use obscure button like the guide button is ever going to happen.

Just get steam controller companion. Solved all problems I ever had with mouse mode ;)
I actually prefer to keep it switched in x input anyway instead of constantly having to switch it back and forth.

I double confirm, amazing software, you can customise the gamepad to death, mouse mod, keyboard mod, both, 1 profile for the desktop and one profile per game/software. Until now, only one game I can't customise is Diablo 2, the software cannot find the process.
