Hey all, I’ve been on the site for a while and after looking at all the clever projects I figured I would tried my own.
I’m currently working on modding a Pi into a PSX case with the controller ports wired to the GPIO. Everything is working well except for getting the controllers working on startup.
gamecon driver is installed and jstest confirms that both controllers are working. All emulators (NES, SNES, Genesis, PSX, GBA, etc.) work with the controllers.
The issues is, every boot I have to ssh into the console and run the modprobe command to get my controllers mapped and working. (The exact command is modprobe gamecon_gpio_rpi map=0,0,0,0,7,7 – I’m on a B+) I’ve added that line to the file /etc/modules, but its back to square one at every reboot. Any thoughts on why the module doesn’t load?
Funny enough I tried that at some point during my troubleshooting, but because I had my controllers improperly wired together, the cursor would move two selections at a time. I never thought to reapply it after fixing things.
Someone needs to add that to the game_con documentation. All resources point to modifying etc/modules.
