I’ve had a good search around but haven’t been able to find an answer, only 1 person with the same problem (http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=45723). I’ve setup RetroPie following a guide and can play a game with a keyboard and have tried to get my 2 usb snes controllers working. After multiple deletes of cfg files and redoing the controller setups, I was able to get both controllers running Emulationstation correctly. Now the issue I have is in-game on both controllers, when I press the down key, it also registers a B button press. This first started in Emulationstation and after looking at the .emulationstation/es_input.cfg I found the B key was written as an axis and had the same value as the down axis, I renamed the B as a button and that fixed the problem in Emulationstation but then appeared in the snes emulator itself, even though the /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg is correct. Is there another .cfg file that may be interfering that I need to change also?
Here is a dump of my /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg file.
Nevermind, I was able to fix it by configuring the controllers in the console instead of in the ES gui. The retroarch.cfg file hasn’t changed so I assume another file has been changed which overrides this one. Sorry for the bother, Always the way, spend 2 or 3 hours trying to figure something out, ask someone and fix it yourself 30 minutes later.
Can you tell me how you fixed it? I dont understand. my down button wont detect when trying to setup my controllers in esconfig. During setup, on a new install,I can setup all my buttons, but down and right dont do anything and I cant setup my controllers
