I too would like to know how to get my X-Arcade Tankstick controls working again. The controls worked fine in RetroPie 3.2, but after updating to 3.6, it appears the method to configure the controls has changed. Below are the contents of my 2 config files from RetroPie 3.6. I’ve also included the old, working emu.cfg file from RetroPie 3.2 at the bottom. Thanks in advance!
