Hello,

I don’t know if this can be useful here:

I own a X-Arcade Dual Joystick with a serial-to-USB adapter (yeah, more than 10 years of service)
When I use it without Xarcade2Jstick on RetroPie, it’s recogniced as a keyboard, when the service is up, it does nothing.
The system is Raspbian Jessie lite with Retropie from github after fresh install.

Made some test with strace on xarcade2jstick and he gets exclusive access to /dev/input/event0 as shown in lsof:

xarcade2j 448 root 4r CHR 13,64 0t0 1848 /dev/input/event0

shows intercepted data after using the xarcade device with this error after pushing UP in left joystick:

Hope it helps
