Thanks for sticking with me on this.

I deleted my es_input.cfg and started fresh. Interestingly, I made sure my usb keyboard was unattached when I bounced the pi.

When ES started, it recognized the xarcade a s dual joystick gamepad. Previously it had only recognized it as a single joystick gamepad. I configured both joysticks this time, but I had to do it by pressing tab from within ES itself at the splash screen for MAME. I configured both, and they are working, but with a couple of minor glitches.

I dont have a button configured to add credits. I have to reattach the keyboard and press 5. I can select a game and lauch the game. From the game’s opening screen, I can press the left side button and the 1 player button to get the in-game menu to reconfig retroarch. However, I cant seem to remap the Coin 1 option to the side button.

Also, pressing the 1 player button or 2 player button does nothing. They are mapped to the 1 and 2 keys, respectively, above the keyboard (not the numpad), and they *will* work on the keyboard. But I want those remapped to the xarcade Player 1 and Player 2 buttons as well.

I tried a couple of SNES games, and those seem to work without issue. I am so close to having this fixed just as I like it, that I can taste it. I am anxious to switch fully to the retropie and away from my revamped original xbox.

I’ll let you know if I uncover any new info. For the record, here is my es_input.cfg:

<?xml version=”1.0″?>
<inputConfig type=”joystick” deviceName=”Xarcade-to-Gamepad Device” dev$
<input name=”a” type=”button” id=”4″ value=”1″ />
