    hi @all,

    i have a question about retropie and the joystick order which will be used at the emulators via retroarch or direct.

    i installed my retropie with the image, followed the instrutions herer and on different pages. i updated it with the script – everthink works fine.

    i installed a wireless keyboard and for testing and directly retro-feeling 3 different gamepads and joysticks.
    – psx compatible usb-gamepad
    – xbox compatible usb-gamepad
    – competition pro compatible usb-joystick

    emustation detect the keyboard and the 3 joysticks and i configure ist correctly without problems.
    for most of the emus i got the info to configure them via retoarch and i did this also via retropie-setup without problems.

    tests bevor with the joystick-tool let me show that every device seems to work korrectly.

    but if i like to use it in one of the emulators – there sometimes only will be the keyboards available or nothing.
    i test everythink, had a look at the logs but there is no problem – it seems to be a configration think.
    i parsed the internet but i yet i did’nt find anything usefull.

    may be the order of the joysticks seems to be a problem?
    or do i need to configure some specials into the emu-retroarch-config?

    other emulators like vice (c64) did’nt use retroarch and at the first tests some buttons seems to work but after some ours testing, reinstalling nothing work any more.

    what i did wrong or may be forgot at the configuration?
    thank you!



    I think some emulators might require separate configuration



    thank you – i know this.
    but i thought the main / overall-config will be used by most emus?
    are there a list which emus need to remap/reconfigure or also need seperate emu-built in config?
    how to i create emu-specific retroarch-config?

    also with the retroarch joystick config-tool write a file down like all-config?
    but how to i know whichs specials are needfull there?
    i don’t like to generate the main config again.
