Hey there, I’ve got my Raspberry Pi B+ setup with a fresh install of RetroPie 2.3 using the binary source code installation (only took around 20 hours). I had it setup with the image downloaded from the site earlier but the controllers weren’t working on that either…
I’m trying to get an xbox360 wired controller working and a cheap amazon bought snes usb controller.
I installed the 360 drivers, and I registered my controller with retroarch (although no menu came up to take me through setup)
I’ve also setup the controllers through emulation station and mapped the controls to the commands ..
So emulationstation works (although after the second installation there’s no background, just white with black text), and both controllers can navigate around in it .. but neither of my controllers work IN GAME.
I’ve only tried one ROM (super mario world) on the NES and neither of them are recognized. Help please!
the controller you configure in the frontend is only for the frontend. You have to configure your controller as a retro-arch controller in the setup. Then it works also ingame, but you won’t be able to exit the game with the controller. There is documentation about it, but I just want to mention you are not alone with having this problem.
