Citra controller input stopped working!

I’ve been playing Citra using my nvidia shield controller with no issues for the past few days, however after a recent restart the contoller is no longer working! The error shows up as:

[ 0.000000] Input input_common\sdl\sdl.cpp:Init:232: SDL_Init(SDL_INIT_JOYSTICK) failed with: CoCreateInstance() DirectX error 0xx

I’ve already tried uninstalling, reinstalling with no luck. The controller continues to work with other emulators… only having issues with Citra. What can I try?!

Thanks

it could be an unstable connection. with the citra emulator if the connection between the controller is broken you need to restart the emulator completely in order to fix the issue. I advice to try connecting your controller using a physical cable.
