The major improvement is that it increases the response pressing speed of the Gamepad.

According to my homemade xinput testing tool the polling rate is fixed now! I now get the same results as with an xbone controller (7-8 ms minimum pressing time).

This was a nice late Christmas present, thanks a lot wlin7730 ;)

EDIT: Confirmed. F1 2016 controls are much better, now! Thanks, GPD!

Thanks for the update GPD.

Still waiting for the horizontal scrolling support and a driver version that offers mouse acceleration to be disabled, but this is a good start.   :)

What about the left shoulder click while using the D-pad? Does it work now?

I hope this fixes Slime Rancher.
That game has problems recognizing third party Xinput controllers but works fine with the original Xbox 360 Gamepad.
Its actually a perfect handheld game!

How is the mouse behavior with this update? Is it accelerated, original or something else?

The mouse behavior is better with this version I think, the sudden acceleration is gone, there's a slight bit but only when really moving the nub far. As for the shoulder buttons issue, I'm not sure if that was fixed or not.

Unfortunately this problem is not fixed in the update...i just tried it.

But other than that this update is a lot better than the last one. Game controls became way more reponsive and the mouse control feels a lot better as well.

Thanks GPD, keep up the good work!

Wow, this is a really noticeable improvement on my end. Thank you to all that worked on this over at GPD. Was really worried this was just going to get swept under the rug, so thanks for making this device much more usable for me. =D

Also spoke to the game developers.
They don't care if the game doesn't work with certain third party controllers as long as the original Microsoft controllers work.

In other words, thet dont know how to actually fix the code they probably wedged into their game, but wont admit their incompetence.
(You could possibly get around it by using something like joy2key and manually redirecting the controls)

Oh well, plenty of other games work great. The improved controller response is indeed very noticeable now.
(If they could fix the sleep problem and the memory managekent bluescreens then the GPD Win would be perfect to me  ;D)

The response is definitely better, but controls are still being dropped.  Thank you for continuing to work on this problem GPD, I hope the Jan10th update is the final update to bring the gamepad inline with your previous offerings, and the competition.

Well, the polling rate was the biggest issue and is fixed.. They can improve other things but I personally with antimicro and xpadder I have all my needs covered. Though i only Play games with gamepad Support, no mouse games or things like that, which I suppose are the things that must be fixed.

The update was quite effective this time around, but there is still seemingly lost inputs when rolling quarter circles on the dpad very quickly.  Im not sure at this point if its still software or if its just the dpad itself (or the membrane).  Its hard to guage since the dpad seems to respond to all 4 directions with extremely soft touches.  Does the new membrane kit decrease the required travel to activation?  Additionally, is the Jan10th update still going to be released and will it futher improve the dpad's responsiveness?  Will you guys PLEASE consider mapping different buttons to L2 and R2 so they are not the same as L1 and R1 in mouse mode?

i cant keep firing when using the left stick to move my ship and that really sucks
but it kinda seems to be a game issue since i didnt notice anything like that when checking the controller in the windows settings

Well not all is great in the land of GPD, while the mouse acceleration is not bad, check what is is happening when you start moving the mouse in DIAGONALS. The acceleration seems to be at least 2x stronger in diagonal direction, resulting in erratic cursor movement.

Anyone try the new V22 release?  It looks like they further butchered mouse mode (which i've given up on and am resorting to steam controller config to manage for me).  More importantly, Im curious if anyone has given the dpad and face buttons a try with the new firmware to see if the lost inputs and lag are now completely gone.
