I have a raspberry pi 2 using retropie 3 final release and I am using a GPIO joystick which is mapped to specific pins on the raspberry Pi.
I have installed the mk_arcade_joystick_rpi program and am testing the joystick.
Some buttons register and others don’t.
I realised that the program mk_arcade_joystick uses specific pins for the joystick buttons.
My question is , Is there anyway to change which pins the buttons are mapped to in the Mk_arcade_joystick program or am I stuck with the layout.
If I can’t change it is there another GPIO joystick config program that can be used for Retropie 3 and Raspberry Pi 2?
I managed to get the ada-retrogame config working with emulationstation and retropie 3 but sometimes when playing a game it would fire and move at the same time.
Possibly because I had the mk_arcade_joystick software installed as well.
I followed the instructions on the adafruit site and it managed to work.
I would prefer the mk arcade joystick software to work but may have to go down the retrogame path
There is a way to edit the mk_arcade_joystick.c file to change the pins but I don’t know how to recompile it.
If someone knows how to recompile linux .c files I would love to know.
Hi, How many buttons i’ve not problem with mk_arcade_joystick… Yuo must set correct buttons in Emulationstation. Other button must be skipped during the configuration, pressing (pre assigned button for a while)
