    First time posting on here so please go easy on me.

    Right I have a pi2 with a fresh copy of retropie 3 installed.

    I put in a wired 360 controller and after the initial setup it works
    flawlessly although the light blinks.

    I thought I would plug in another wired 360 controller and after another
    initial setup in emulationststion both controllers could navigate the menu

    After booting up random snes nes and n64 games the second controller would
    either not work, become player 1 and be the only controller that works or
    become player two and be the only controller that works.

    I understand I have to either manually edit a config file or use some gui
    to setup both controllers but I can’t for the life of me find any
    documentation or guides for ret3 anywhere.

    I tried using a “how to use 360 controller in retropie” page that seemed to
    be dated March, I ended up doing the daemon script and adding it to rc.d
    etc and after reboot the controllers lit up as player 1 and 2 but every
    boot of a game showed a ton of controllers recognised. So I reverted to not
    using the xboxdrv thingy and I was back to the original setup.

    All I’m after is two wired 360 controllers working as player 1 and player



    Maybe it’s best to go back to the offical relate because looking on the forums alot of people are having issues with controllers on retro3…
