    Hi guys,

    I just got my second NES USB controller. First one worked great. But for the second one, the “B” button won’t work in the game (but it works in emulation station just fine and is recognized).

    Any thoughts? I wrote this into my nes config file per a post I saw – (Located at /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/nes)

    input_player1_a_btn = 1
    input_player1_b_btn = 2
    input_player1_start_btn = 9
    input_player1_select_btn = 8
    input_player1_left_axis = -0
    input_player1_right_axis = +0
    input_player1_up_axis = -1
    input_player1_down_axis = +1

    input_player2_a_btn = 1
    input_player2_b_btn = 2
    input_player2_start_btn = 9
    input_player2_select_btn = 8
    input_player2_left_axis = -0
    input_player2_right_axis = +0
    input_player2_up_axis = -1
    input_player2_down_axis = +1

    Please help – I am hosting a tecmo bowl tournament this weekend and need this to work!

    Is it possible that it’s button 0 and not 2?

    So you think I should just try random add’l numbers in there until it works? Has anyone else had this problem?

    The fact that it works in emulationstation makes me think it is some other issue. I will try the different numbers tonight when I get home.
