    Hey everyone,

    i´m using a Pi B+ with a Sixaxis PS3 contoller via Bluetooth. Everything works fine with the controls.
    Now I also want to use an original SNES controller via the GPIO adapter. Installation worked fine and I can controll the emulation station with the SNES-, the PS3-controller and the keyboard. My question is:
    how to configure the emulators to switch between the controllers?
    For example:
    RetroArch: i want to choose between them (SNES controller for SNES games, PS3 controller for PSX games …)
    GPSP: i cant get the SNES controller to work, but want to use it instead of the PS3 one or rather both .

    The problem is, when i activate SNESdev my PS3 controller switches from “player 1” to “player 3” and i cant register the SNES controller via the retropie script but it works fine in emulationstation.

    I hope you understand my problem and can help me somehow.
