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?!


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.
