    Gday,

    I am so close to having the perfect setup. Im running ES/RetroArch from OSMC on an overclocked (Turbo) Pi2. Im using a Rock Candy XBOX 360 controller.

    Emulators Im using are N64 and nes. They both work fine but Id like to configure the NES emulator to use the left stick for movement rather than the Dpad. This is what I did…

    – created a .cfg file for the controller from the front end and swapped the left stick and dpad controls.
    – created a retroarch-joypads folder under the nes config folder and placed the new auto config file (RockCandyGamepadforXbox360.cfg) in there.
    – edited the nes retroarch config and added this line at the top. “joypad_autoconfig_dir = /opt/retropie/configs/nes/retroarch-joypads”
    – restarted.

    It sort of works… When I load the game (super mario bros) it appears that controller input is disabled, but if I wait about 90 seconds it starts working!!

    So: 1. Is there a better/faster way of remapping the joystick for a single emulator?
    2. Where can i find that info?

    Cheers.

    I have the exact same problem, but I haven’t even configured emulator specific controls (yet). Just did the first time config and then edited it a bit. I’m using RetroPie 3.0 and Wii Classic pad with Mayflash adapter. Works like a charm, but the delay is really weird AND annoying and sometimes totally random length. 🙁 It also feels like pressing some buttons can activate the controller faster, but I’m not 100% sure about that, I’ll have to experiment more.

    Ok, I can now confirm, that the controller comes active right after I press both of the shoulder buttons down simultaneously. It also seems, that if I have the controller being idle a while, it kind of goes into “sleep” and then I need to activate it again via that 2 button press.
