I’m also running the same setup as you. I programmed and verified the IPAC2 keystrokes in windows. Since I originally booted the retropie with a standard keyboard, it wouldn’t recognize the IPAC2 when connected. So I had to go to controller configuration by hitting the “START” button and then hold any button on the IPAC2 control panel to register the new controller. The only other thing I did after this was modify the retroarch.cfg file and add the following lines under the player1 controls…

input_player2_a = s
input_player2_b = a
input_player2_y = w
input_player2_x = i
input_player2_start = num2
input_player2_select = num6
input_player2_left = d
input_player2_right = g
input_player2_up = t
input_player2_down = f

Below are a couple pics of my setup. With a little trial and error I found this configuration to work pretty good right out of the box with most emulators. My 1B button is my exit button and I programmed it as a macro so it has a key combination of (ESC, 5, 1). This will get you out of most emulators that I’ve tried. The only other macro I have is for 1SW7, it is programmed to the keystrokes (E X I T Enter), this will exit the terminal. And hitting 1SW2, 1A, then 1SW2 again will get you into the terminal. This is useful if you are updating rom sets in the retropie and need to refresh the list…. basically enter the terminal and then exit it. I’m a newbie to all this so there may be better methods than what I’ve done.
