    Hello All!

    So I am endeavoring to make my own arcade machine, and so far I am LOVING retropie. I ordered some joysticks and buttons, and just got them today. I wired it all up and tested it on my computer, and it does indeed work. It came with its own controller board and everything works when I test it on my computer. However, it does not work with retropie. It doesn’t activate in the configure interface wizard. So…how can I fix this? I want to be able to use these things for the entirety of my use, both within games and in emulationstation. It is controllers for two players (2 joysticks, 6 buttons each, a 1-Player button, and 2-Player button). I am an EXTREME beginner. Im tech savvy, and used to command line stuff, but this is a new world for me.

    UPDATE:

    Floob reccomended adding some additional info…

    Pi Model: B+
    RetroPie Version Used: 2.6.0
    Built From: SD Image
    USB Devices connected: Joystick and button assembly and keyboard

    I forgot to mention that these joysticks show up on my computer as a game controller
