    Hi guys,

    I’m having a little bit of trouble configuring my (very cheap) USB controllers to work with PocketSNES.

    First I’ll describe the behaviour I’m seeing:
    – both controllers work to navigate the main Emulation Station menu
    – I open Super Mario World and select 2-player
    – I play as player 1 with controller 1 fine until I die, then it loads the world screen
    – I then try to use controller 2 to move the character, but it fails
    – I can move the character with controller 1 to select a level
    – I try to play level with controller 1, but it fails
    – I can play the level using controller 2

    Other games have other problems, this one is the closest to working.

    I ran the retroarch-joyconfig tool to configure both controllers. I ran:
    retroarch-joyconfig -j 1 -p 1 >> /opt/retroarch/configs/all/retroarch.cfg
    retroarch-joyconfig -j 0 -p 2 >> /opt/retroarch/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

    I also tried setting the controls just by hitting F1 to get to the RGUI > Settings > Input settings, but that didn’t resolve anything.

    Is there something I’m missing? Thanks in advance



    I’d be tempted to put your retroarch.cfg back how it was and just use the autodetect method.
    I think it might be easier to debug if there are issues then.
