    Hello,

    I’m trying to configure my D-pad but I can’t get it to work in Retroarch SNES games. It works in EmulationStation. I also have the buttons (A/B/X/Y/L1/R1/Start/Select) working, but can’t figure out the D-pad for the life of me.

    /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/
    in both “ALL” and “SNES”

    My config is this:

    input_player1_Joypad_index = 0
    input_player1_b_btn = 1
    input_player1_a_btn = 2
    input_player1_y_btn = 0
    input_player1_x_btn = 3
    input_player1_l_btn = 4
    input_player1_r_btn = 5
    input_player1_select_btn = 8
    input_player1_start_btn = 9
    input_player1_up_btn = h0up
    input_player1_down_btn = h0down
    input_player1_left_btn = h0left
    input_player1_right_btn = h0right

    These configurations are taken from the RetroArch controller configuration in EmulationStation.

    Any advice?

    It looks like it’s setup for HAT controls. Try typing +1 and -1 for exame for the up and down buttons. Are you using an Xbox pad with xboxdrv installed?

    sorry for the late reply, was out of town.

    I’m not using an xbox controller, its a $15 gamepad similar to a playstation 2 controller. It has 2 analog sticks and a D pad. I don’t have xboxdrv installed.

    I tried adding +1 and -1 with no luck.

    Any ideas?

    If you install the jtest utility you can determine which buttons are being pressed on your pad. To install:

    sudo apt-get install joystick

    Then run:

    jstest /dev/input/js0

    If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.
