Elemental Gimmick Gear won't detect button inputs
I'm running a E.G.G. GDI dump on Demul and the game fails to detect my button presses, whether I use the keyboard or my 360 pad. However, according to Virtual Dreamcast, it's supposed to run correctly on Demul. Any ideas on the problem's cause or how to fix it?
Edit: The little VMU screen window doesn't appear when I run this game, so the problem must be that it doesn't detect the gamepad as plugged in. However, the controller is properly setup in Maple Device Manager, as it works with other games.

you broke emulator settings, use defaults instead and game will run fine.
DO NOT assign "Extended controller buttons" - they are not configured by default for a reason: many games not compatible with them.

Thanks! I don't know what was the cause (I didn't have any of the Extended controller buttons assigned), but re-extracting the Demul files to a separate folder and running it with the default settings solved the problem
