    Hey guys,

    I’ve spent countless hours trying to figure out how to get my PlayStation 3 DualShock controller to work with SNES9X.

    It works just fine with some other SNES emulators, such as lr-armsnes. However, I don’t get the same performance I do from SNES9X.

    Looking at /opt/retropie/config/snes/emulators.cfg, I see that the SNES9X entry doesn’t have some options specified like the other SNES emulators:

    snes9x="/opt/retropie/emulators/snes9x/snes9x %ROM%"
    #pisnes="/opt/retropie/emulators/pisnes/snes9x %ROM%"
    lr-armsnes="/opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch -L /opt/retropie/libretrocores/lr-armsnes/ --config /opt/retropie/configs/snes/retroarch.cfg %ROM%"
    #lr-catsfc="/opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch -L /opt/retropie/libretrocores/lr-catsfc/ --config /opt/retropie/configs/snes/retroarch.cfg %ROM%"
    #lr-pocketsnes="/opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch -L /opt/retropie/libretrocores/lr-pocketsnes/ --config /opt/retropie/configs/snes/retroarch.cfg %ROM%"
    #lr-snes9x-next="/opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch -L /opt/retropie/libretrocores/lr-snes9x-next/ --config /opt/retropie/configs/snes/retroarch.cfg %ROM%"

    Is this part of the reason it isn’t working?

    Please help guide me to get this to work, if possible. I can paste any configuration needed in order to assist.
