    Hi everyone,

    I’m running the latest version of RetroPie. I have configured an iBuffalo Classic USB Gamepad. It looks like a super nintendo controller. The setup seems to go fine, although it never asks for the X and Y buttons.

    When navigating the menus and selecting a game, the controller works fine. However once the emulator loads (both NES and Atari) the controller no longer works. I can hit any button and nothing happens.

    Any ideas?





    I figured it out. I didn’t realize that I had to configure the controller in the console, not just through Emulation Station.
