mate at the moment the n64 is very touch n go, especially with the include emulator, there are tests being done on a newer version and it looks pretty cool! but as I said we may never have the pleasure of running every rom flawlessly I’m afraid to say, but hang in there
TBH this is all very new to me. I have limited experience with Linux (Ubuntu) and less with emulators.
I recall there being an option in setup (retropie setup, maybe raspi-config) to install xbox360 driver so i did that. Then i went to configure retroarch controller in the setup and followed the prompts (press this button, press that button), rebooted and it works in all of my emulators so far. No cmd line stuff or config files to manually edit.
Still having this issue with the N64 emulator. trying to collect info from the console text as to why it opens and then shuts down. May play with config file for it.
If you need more info about controller setup PM me and ill either start another thread or talk to you about it in PM
