    I am trying to figure out how to get Intellivision to work with my xbox 360 wireless remote. I have been searching the forum with no luck.. I have a pi 3 running 3.6 retropie. I am also new to this so the more explanation the better.

    I’ve written a tutorial how to configure a game controller in jzintv in the post below.

    The links seem to be down in that post so I have included the required files in the attached zip.

    The method makes use of shell scripts to launch games so before you start, you need to edit es_systems.cfg. The best way to do this is to copy the file from /etc/emulationstation to /home/pi/.emulationstation. Now edit the permitted extensions to only include shell scripts, .sh, so that the Intellivision entry reads as below:

        <extension>.sh .SH</extension>
        <command>/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/ 0 _SYS_ intellivision %ROM%</command>

    To make sure that the shell scripts launch, you will need to edit /opt/retropie/configs/intellivision/emulators.cfg to the following:


    Now add event_diag.rom and Event to the Intellivions roms folder, restart ES with F4 and you are now ready to begin the tutorial.

    Let me know if you need further guidance.
