Hi everyone, I am brand new to all this and I don’t seem to be very good. I have gotten as far as to get a few games working but then my controls are all screwed up. I did the whole
sudo chown pi /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg
commands and then I get the controller all setup the way I want. Once I start my game “Super Mario World” for SNES, anytime I press down I jump, and left acts as the A button even though I set the controller correctly. Any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong? The videos I watch are confusing and I feel like I am doing something just slightly wrong. Thanks!

This will let you run the controller config – very similar to this:
