    Hi guys!

    Im soon to pull my hair in pure space madness 🙂

    I have a clean setup running v.3 with aim to emulate mame and fba
    Im trying to configure this 2 player joystick (generic usb) with 6 “action” buttons and 2 “top” buttons.

    In Mame all is ok since it has it´s own config/interface

    Fba on the other hand…

    jstest js0 and js1 shows

    Driver version is 2.1.0.
    Joystick (Generic USB Joystick ) has 6 axes (X, Y, Z, Rz, Hat0X, Hat0Y)
    and 12 buttons (Trigger, ThumbBtn, ThumbBtn2, TopBtn, TopBtn2, PinkieBtn, BaseBtn, BaseBtn2, BaseBtn3, BaseBtn4, BaseBtn5, BaseBtn6).
    Testing … (interrupt to exit)
    Axes: 0:-32767(left) and 32767(right) 1:-32767(up) and 32767(down)
    Buttons: 0:on 1:on 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off 7:off 8:on 9:on 10:off 11:off

    I want 0-5 as “action btn´s” and 8-9 as 1 Player and “insert coin”

    Then my thought was to have BTN 0 on player1 side + BTN 5 on player2 side as “exit emulator” hotkey

    How should my CFG look like? 🙂 I have tried so many variants and nothing works. Im not even shure that the Fba reads my cfg attempts!?!

    I have read so many guides (guess i´m stupid) and still don´t get it…

    In what config do i need to to put the joystick information?

    I thought i should put it in the retroarch.cfg within the fba folder? i tried that but nothing works in the emu.

    Is there anybody out there who could help me out?

    Looks like this
