Citra doesn't detect my controller

So, I wanted to play some 3DS Pokémon games, and just updated my Citra Nightly Launcher, loaded up a game, and then I noticed that the emulator didn’t detect my controller, I use an wired bionik vulkan controller, and tried closing the emulator and opening the emulator and still didn’t worked

Citra recently updated it’s SDL version. Some config file might’ve gotten corrupted because of it unfortunately. Go to File>Open Citra Folder, then open up the config folder and delete the qt-config.ini file found here. Now restart Citra and try to map your controller again.

Another things is that you say you’re using Nightly 1728, this isn’t recommended for your GPU as that has driver bugs on the latest versions of Citra. To prevent running into any issues, you should be using this older build instead:
Download citra-windows-mingw-20191214-ddb7ead.7z from Release nightly-1392: Merge pull request #5020 from jroweboy/dynamic-mf · citra-emu/citra-nightly · GitHub
Extract it using Winrar or 7zip. Put the extracted folder anywhere you want. Now run citra-qt.exe from the folder and run your game.
