That's right! The P-UAE core very good alternative,but one thing missing: The android mouse cursor hiding option. This function useful for point and click adventure games,and strategy games.
The Uae4Arm has this function.

I've never tried a real mouse with RetroArch. On P-UAE I use the joypad to control the mouse so never see the Android pointer.

It's also got floppy drive sounds ! I have found one thing that doesn't work. I can't seem to find a 'capsimg' library that's compatible with Android so you can't load IPF files.

@lubomyr

Binding keys for left & right trigger work. But it seems you have them in incorrect order.

In this scenario....

Binding left trigger to for example F1
Binding right trigger to for example F2

Right trigger acts as F1
Left trigger acts as F2

fix would be appreciated buddy

Send the apk to the Shield (Ftp,smb,email,pendrive) and install it with any file manager app.
After installation you will find it the Apps menu.

Where do you find the .apk file on your Android phone? I am keen to sideload it to the Shield. -Edit - Found out how to do a backup of an app

Interesting and very useful feature for users which want to use direct (not relative) touchscreen mouse mode

I have been using the mouse hack non-relative option with Workbench and it works really well, thank you. I have also used it with some workbench games with success. I understand that non-Workbench games don't read the mouse the same way and don't work with mouse hack's non-relative movements.

What about a feature where the mouse can be calibrated for a specific game when using mouse hack mode? Perhaps even a way to save calibration for specific games? It's a bit kludgy but from my experiments with the way the mouse moves in some games, I can see that a game specific custom calibration that translates the touch position to the mouse position would indeed work.
