FS#11215 - not able to move in DOOM!

installed rockbox and doom (freedoom) all correctly. but problem is that the navigation keys dont work when the game starts. cant move. but i can bring up pause menu by flicking hold on then off but then only up(menu button) works in addition to the center button being able to select

to reproduce:install latest build for ipod classic 5th gen 30gb
install doom from the rockbox utilities program
run doom in ipod
game loads
face at bottom of screen moves, showing it isnt frozen… cannot move

and yes i have tried configuring the keys, it doesnt work

"…but then only up(menu button) works in addition to the center button being able to select…"

This is the intended behaviour with the in-game menu and is to be expected, it is not a bug.
I mentioned this in IRC, but perhaps you missed it.

Also, you mention (both here and in IRC) your device is an "ipod classic 5th gen 30gb", is the 5th Gen 30GB not in fact called the "iPod Video"?
If I understand correctly that is correct, and the 6th Gen iPods (unsupported by Rockbox) are labled "iPod Classic".


oh well my bad with the ipod mix up but i do have a 5th gen
proof: s/n 4W547NJSSZ9

and the pause menu i couldnt care less about. xP its not bein able to play that annoys me.

btw the build is 3.5.1

Does this still happen in 3.6?

Confirmed as a bug in r26569 (post 3.6) - this is definitely an issue, however the number of Rockbox developers who care about Doom is fast approaching zero (if it's not zero already), so don't expect a speedy fix.
