Nothing is registered on the setup, it does not see any buttons i press on the arcade stick. but I will check out that video
That’s strange. But I too often have problems w/ my USB controllers for a short amount of time after I’ve put my Pi on. It takes a while for the Pi to “warm up” and actually “see” (or “register”) USB devices that are connected to the Pi via a (powered) hub.
I reconnect the hub and the controllers a few times until it shows up w/ the following command:
Is you controller connected directly to the Pi or via a hub? And does the controller work on your PC? I.e.: is the usb cable not broken?
P.S. I have the iBuffalo faux-SNES controller too. 🙂
