The latest Citra Progress Report talks about the inclusion of a “Software Keyboard”, but what it shows in the screenshot/animation is a popup dialog where you can input the text you want (with presumably an actual hardware keyboard).
While I absolutely appreciate progress in this area, this is not a Software Keyboard and it makes using Citra with just a Controller impossible.
I understand the term Software Keyboard used here is likely referring to the fact that its hooking in to the internal Software Keyboard call, and not that the keyboard itself is implemented in software, but is there any (near?) future plan to actually implement a Software Keyboard instead of a input box? A HLE version of what the 3DS normally has during these text sections?
