@bobchiba good to hear!
did you get both the controllers to work at the same time? i cannot have both the red lights at the same time :(
can you share this config you are talking about?
manually edit the TwinUSBJoystic.cfg file with the same button assignment as a PS3 controller
i’d love to have a look at it since i have only one controller working maybe it’s the config .. or maybe i should update to 3.0 as well :Dphipix01Participant02/17/2015 at 09:34Post count: 27phipix01Participant01/29/2015 at 17:26Post count: 27
to whoever was asking about the usb PS2 controller adapter that you plug 2 PS2 controllers into, I HIGHLY recommend going that route. PS2 controllers are great, assign the digital pads as your input and press the analog button on the controller to switch to analog stick input.
I think you can plug and unplug the controllers while in use, I’m not sure though, I usually just keep them both plugged in.
here’s how I set them up for retropie in the retroarch.cfg file with save and load state goodness, hold in select and press R1 for save, select and L1 for Load state, and select and start to exit emulator.
i guess that was me .. i’m glad you recommend them and thank you very much for your config i’ll try it as soon as i got time.
as it happens to be that i got two of those lovely 2xps2-to-usb adapters i want to try to get 4 controllers working, ill post my configs it i get it working. one other thing i found out is that two different controllers (one original and one non-sony) on one adapter are not working for me.

i need help guys. i use the Disk Management Snap-In from Windows Computer Management. I have a 3TB WD Ext Drive. If i Convert it to a GPT Disk, i can use the full 3TB, unless i can make max. 2TB partitions. My Problem is though it only lets me choose between exFat or NTFS. will the Raspbian OS run on a exFat drive?
how did you guys format your 3TB drive to FAT32?phipix01Participant06/26/2014 at 17:14Post count: 27
I use exactly the same Adapter but i couldnt get both controllers to work. Are you using 2 original sony controllers of exactly the same type? Because i think this causes my problem. I tried a original sony and a Logic at first and the Red light from the sony controller turned off as soon as i plugged the other one in. Then I tried with a PS2 and a PS1 controller this works slightly better but not perfect either because i cant have them both running at the same time.
now if you’d confirm me that 2 controllers of the same type are working i will definetly purchase some more.
Have you done your configurations yet? does it work fine?
I actually bought a second adapter in hopes that i could have 4 Controllers connected to the pi alltogether.
Do you guys think the Pi can handle this? Has anyone ever seen or even tried smthing like this?
I tried these configs once:
but they dont work for me.phipix01Participant06/26/2014 at 16:45Post count: 27
I assume the usb Drive has to be fat32 formatted aswell, doesn’t it?
Can i access the filesystem on a windows computer afterwards aswell?phipix01Participant06/25/2014 at 10:52Post count: 27
Sorry for the late answer @royenroy .. i was quite busy.
I would run the Adafruit-Retrogame script on boot/startup. This script then runs backgrounded and maps your custom gpio inputs as keypresses. again, i used this to build my own controller for retro games. but maybie you can map usb controller inputs aswell and then just assign them values for example left and right and navigate through xbmc like this.
EDIT: it didnt paste links for some reason:
this is the script u have to run in background:
this is how you run it in background:
i hope it will work. please give me some feedback as soon as u tried it because i want to make it aswell one day.
cheers!phipix01Participant06/15/2014 at 17:02Post count: 27
I either FTP or SSH on your raspberry while it’s in the same network as your other computer (SSh with Putty and Ftp with Filezilla) and then i look for the RetroPie folder, i think it’s in Home/Pi folder and replace config files there. if you’re on the raspberrys console list the directory with “ls” and change the directory with “cd” for example “cd pi/RetroPie”
@foob any news about the updated config files?phipix01Participant05/13/2014 at 16:34Post count: 27
Let’s switch back to this thread .. at first, thanks a lot for your config upload. I have excatly the same adapter like you but with different brands i ment that i have 1 original ps2 controller and one of those cheaper ones from logic3. when i can only get one red light to light up, as soon as i press the analog button on the other controller, the light of the first controller will turn off.
I’d be very happy if you’d upload your 1.9.. config when ur done.
in the meantime ill try to get two originall controllers .. or just 2 times exactly the same and try again.
do you press the analog buttons right after you plug in the power supply?
also, the controlls didnt work for duke nukem 3d for me ..
and im not sure if this is because of the rom or the config, in mario64 i cant walk slowly, it’s automatically running ..
thanks a lot.
i bought 2 of the adapters, so i could possibly play with 4 controllers .. is this technically possible?phipix01Participant05/13/2014 at 08:26Post count: 27
I’m using @foob ‘s config files. which he posted here
I couldn’t get both controllers to work, maybie because they are a different type. But i hop I’ll get there some day.
If someone else managed to get 2 ps1/2 controller working with such a ps1/2-usb-Adapter I’d be quite happy to see his config files and hear how he’s done it.phipix01Participant05/08/2014 at 18:39Post count: 27phipix01Participant05/05/2014 at 14:35Post count: 27
or you could cut the line from rc.local (i guess) that runs ES, run your own script instead where you check what time it is and them if the time is allright you paste the line which runs ES, else you poweroff. i don’t think your 7yo son would get around this :Dphipix01Participant05/05/2014 at 11:16Post count: 27
i used adafruit’s retrogame aswell with my homemade gpio controller.
just make sure the script runs on bootup.
i’m sure there’s a line for emulationstation aswell so just make sure u add the one for retrogame above it.
(i haven’t tried my own gpio adapter with emulation station, only with MAME4all itself but it should work aswell since ES does no more than start MAME automatically.phipix01Participant05/05/2014 at 11:05Post count: 27
i’m not sure but maybie u have to change the rights for the folder.
in emulationstation hit Alt+F4 to get to the terminal then type
cd RetroPie/roms/nesor however your path is
and then try
chmod 777 yourHackFolderName
I’m not 100% sure about the syntax of chmod .. if it’s not working, read it yourself by typing
man chmodphipix01Participant05/05/2014 at 10:55Post count: 27
within emulationstation you can scroll by Character or even sort for example “most used roms”.
these options u have to assign to a button when u first configure the emulationstation.
(this prompt only shows up the first time you start ES, if you want to reconfigure just delete es_input.cfg and reboot)phipix01Participant05/05/2014 at 10:51Post count: 27
i’m having the same issues. is ther no way to achieve the correct controller setup without having to buy a powered usb hub?
can’t we just manually assign the right buttons in es_input.cfg? or use someone elses config?
I ordered 2x ps1/2 controller -> 1x usb adapter. anyone made any experiences with theese?phipix01Participant05/05/2014 at 10:44Post count: 27

i had the same issue with FileZilla on my windows.phipix01Participant05/05/2014 at 10:37Post count: 27
once i built a little controller by myself (gpio connected) and used a script which mounted keyboard-presses when i pressed a button on the controller.
If you want to use xbmc with your controller i guess you can just start xmbc.sh aswell as the read-custom-input.sh (i don’t remember how it’s called) from emulationstation.
I’m not sure how it’s gonna be if the controller is connected by usb but i guess u could just modify the script a little bit.
like i said, i can’t remember the name of it but i can have a look at it on my pc as soon as i get home from work :D

hey guys, i would like to use two Playstation2 Controllers, with one Adapter.
Since there is only one usb input to the Raspi but two different controllers, will this be a problem?
or do you recommend buy two single adapters?
im sorry, i just found the post of @foob
where he uses the exact same adapter as i linked. I guess it will work then :Dphipix01Participant04/01/2014 at 15:57Post count: 27
i built a gpio controller myself for testing, now i want to hack a keyboard and build a 2player joystick pannel. can someone tell me if this works with all the emulators? because i tested mine only on mame4all.
what are your best experiences with multiple controllers?
