I have one usb encoder and two ps3 controllers.
I have mame and psx setup and running. now I’m working on N64.
I found that if you are using retroarch and don’t want the encoder to play a part as a controller you just set your ps3 controllers in the confings for retropie.
now how do I set mupen to only use the ps3 controllers. It auto detects all three joypads js0=encoder, js1=ps3, js2=ps3. I see in the config file all three are setup and ready for use. Is there a way to disallow the encoder?
See where it says mode = 2, you want to set your mode to 1 or 0.
Mode 1 pulls key settings from InputAutoCfg.ini, and mode 0 uses whatever keys you set in mupen64plus.cfg.
I prefer mode 1 so will recommend setting it to 1 for player 1 and 2, typing the name of your controller as it appears in InputAutoConfig.ini (which I am guessing is ‘Sony Playstation(R)3 Controller’ just like the video), and setting up your keys up in the InputAutoCfg.ini file.
For player 3 and 4, just set the mode to 0 and delete the name, or set it to something else other than the name of your encoder, then only your ps3 controllers will be picked up!
Finely got a chance to try out the setting. Mupen still sees the encoder as a joypad even with the mode set to 0 and a name change in mupen64plus.cfg. With the encoder taking up the js0 spot, the playstation controllers take js1 and js2 the games see js0 as the first joypad. I just might have to wait for the controller block to start selling again.
