    Setup:

    Model B 512
    16GB SD card
    1A HTC Charger
    2x Retro Link USB SNES Controllers
    NOOBS 1.2 installed Rasbian
    64MB GPU Memory
    Retro-Pie installation script (binary install)

    SNES Issues:

    Basically, everything works fine, until I try to play Donkey Kong Country, and the 2nd controller stops working. The emulator works fine for 2 player in the Mario All Stars, Mario Kart, Street Fighter 2 and Mortal Kombat 3 roms.

    I found this:
    https://github.com/retropie/RetroPie-Setup/issues/158

    But I do not understand how to do that, I’m pretty sure I do not have the source code in my install to do that, and I also can not switch to using PiSNES because it gives me an error when trying to launch (missing shared library). There also was not a configuration file to map the controller buttons either.

    So if this has been a known issue for a while, is it going to be fixed at some point out-of-the-box? I don’t know how to go about fixing it regardless.

    Atari 2600 Issues:

    The 2nd controller doesn’t work period for me, I was thinking that possibly its reading a different configuration file from the main Retro Pie one, but I do not know enough to figure it out.

    Also, is there a way to map the difficulty buttons and possibly the Color/B&W switch? If I could at least get the 2nd controller working so me and my gf can play Frogs and Flys, it would be great!

    Alright, so this what I figured out with the Atari emulator:

    B = Fire
    Select = Game Select Switch
    Start = Game Start
    L = Hard Difficulty
    L2= Easy Difficulty

    The last one was tricky, as you would think R would have changed difficulty instead of L2. I bound L2 to my R button to test with and I was happy to see it work, but dumbfounded by the control scheme. So the other 3 face buttons and R doesn’t do anything from what I can tell.

    I just need to know how the heck to enable the 2nd controller and I will be OK, I can live without 2 player DK on the SNES for now.

    Looks like Atari might be fixed, does this help?

    So…any thoughts on getting the 2 player Atari fix added in?

    The libretro-stella core was fixed two days ago (see https://github.com/libretro/stella-libretro/commits/master). The new version will be updated in the RetroPie Binaries within the next days.

    The recently updated binaries for the binaries-based installation include the new Stella-Libretro core.
