Very interesting, thanks for compiling this list, most of the tips there are useful for us Gemini users as well. It would be great to have articles like this stored in a wiki which is still planned. Now that most of the work on the forum has been done, we can focus on it, we'll keep you informed.
I have a question about the controller: how stable is the Cosmo with both controllers attached? Is there any danger of pushing the screen with too much force, thus risking to break the hinge?

Thanks. I would be happy to contribute to Wiki as well. Cosmo is stable and solid with both controllers. No danger at all. Controllers size perfectly fits Cosmo, they can't touch the screen at all. If you will push the screen itself with your finger too much it can potentially break but why will you force push it if everything is mapped to controller? I've attached some pictures, you can take a look

Thanks for the photos. So the controllers are actually attached to the base, I thought they were attached to the screen. That's a much better solution.

Hi. I bought one. In the instructions Ipega said that the gamepad is fully charged when the orange led is off and is charging when orange led is always on. Mine when charging orange led flashes and when fully charged orange led is always on. Is this correct ? Thanks.

Bought the Ipega too along with the Dash 3 stylus, so thanks to the starter about the list. Dash 3 is really good.

A very solid feeling device this Ipega also. And mine blinks too when charging. When charged, the led stays on, and when the charger is removed it goes off.

Now,  as I'm not any gamer expert, the setup seems challenging. Firstly, when launching the ShootingPlus v3 app and pairing the device, I get warnings that the Direct mode does not work reliably with my phone due to the bluetooth chip. Then follows recommends to enter the developer mode and whatever... Is this really true? How is it with you cam1965?

Eventually I will find out, takes some learning though. As much as I dislike searching Youtube for learning something, l have no better options...

Maybe someone will find it useful. Feel free to suggest apps and accessories

This is excellent - very public spirited of you and very kind to share, as a new user I found it really useful.
