    Hello, how do I set twin usb in retropie?
    I use a controller like this



    Hi, with both pads plugged in type in terminal:

    ls /dev/input/

    Are both pads identified, there should be two ‘js’ (joystick) each followed by a number

    If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.



    hi trimmtrabb
    yes, js0 and js1
    how to configuration?



    This thread may help you:

    Need help with setting up RetroPie

    You can also have seperate controls for certain emulators if you place a retroarch.cfg in the respective emulator folder for example: RetroPie/configs/megadrive/

    This will override the default controls in configs/all/

    If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.




    I use exactly the same Adapter but i couldnt get both controllers to work. Are you using 2 original sony controllers of exactly the same type? Because i think this causes my problem. I tried a original sony and a Logic at first and the Red light from the sony controller turned off as soon as i plugged the other one in. Then I tried with a PS2 and a PS1 controller this works slightly better but not perfect either because i cant have them both running at the same time.
    now if you’d confirm me that 2 controllers of the same type are working i will definetly purchase some more.
    Have you done your configurations yet? does it work fine?

    @trimmtrabb aswell.
    I actually bought a second adapter in hopes that i could have 4 Controllers connected to the pi alltogether.

    Do you guys think the Pi can handle this? Has anyone ever seen or even tried smthing like this?

    I tried these configs once:

    Using Playstation 1/2 Controllers on RetroPie, CONFIGS INCLUDED.

    but they dont work for me.
