I got my 8Bitdo NES30 Pro to work by following Floob’s video tutorial step-by-step. The only thing I did differently was to bind the controller using “power + R1” instead of “power”, so it runs in Joystick mode and lets you bind L2 and R2 (which did not work in the video tutorial).
Following this video and once you configured the controller in emulation station, the controller should be set up for all emulators, except for Megadrive/Genesis. This is also mentioned in the video. You’ll need to switch to 6 button controller and configure your button mappings manually for Megadrive.
There’s another problem regarding the hotkey mappings in mupen64plus (N64 emulator). I found a quick and dirty solution for that one by digging through the forums, but it seems there is also a way to do that using the Configuration Editor – I haven’t found that setting yet, but I will have a look at it as soon as I’m home again. However, here’s the thread where I describe the problem.
On a side-note:
Downgrading your conrtoller firmware will add problems rather than solving yours. The Joystick mode has just been added with version 1.69, so you will be stuck with your shoulder buttons (L2 and R2) not working.
