    my ps3 usb controllers buttns in NES games are strange.

    I have mapped it to use SQUARE as A and X as B. But in all NES games its X as A and CIRCLE as B. Its like this in games only, in emustation menu buttons are as mapped.

    In SNES games the buttons work as I mapped them.

    Thx for any tips!

    I just tried adding the button mapping below to the retroarch.cfg located in /opt/retropie/configs/nes bit this did absolutely nothing. The NES-buttons A and B are still mapped to X and SQUARE for some unknown reason.

    input_device = “Sony PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller”
    input_driver = “udev”
    input_a_btn = “14”
    input_b_btn = “15”

    14 is the SQUARE and 15 is X on the PS3-controller.

    I cant figure out which cfg-file tells NES games these strange A and B-button mappings.
