Dragon quest viii - hunting grounds

I’v got to the part in the game when you need to walk (not run) and i cant do it for some reason.
in a real 3ds, you need to push the circle pad gently to walk. i tried to do that with keyboard and a controller - and it didnt work for me. anyone here played the game in citra and managed to that?

There should be a circle pad mod in controls which changes the ‘strength’ of the circle pad inputs, allowing you to walk.

Thank you! it worked
