    I got a SNES USB controller and went through the setup using these commands

    sudo chown pi /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg
    cd /opt/retropie/emulators/RetroArch/installdir/bin
    sudo ./retroarch-joyconfig -j 0 >> /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

    I pressed the right buttons when it told me to, but the buttons were mismatched when I went in game (Kirby Super Star). I kept retrying double checking that everything was correct but it was still messed up. Then I went in the config menu (I think thats what it is) using this command

    sudo nano /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

    and changed something (I can’t find what it was) and now no controller won’t in game at all. (I also have a USB NES controller that worked before) Any ideas on how to fix this? I will look for what I changed.

    Thanks, Rod



    Also, the thing I changed was under Input, and if someone can send me a pic of the default version of the Input section so I can see what I changed I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks, Rod



    Here is a clean one:

    I’ve had the same thing happen to me. I’m also struggling trying to keep several configs from being overwritten and/or an easy way to switch back and forth between them. The controllers are for nes, snes, genesis and all come up as a universal usb controller, with same config file names.
