my main Arcade Rig is a fullSize Cabinet with a i7 & Windows System which works like a charm. But in times of eco and energySaving i want to be a part so i tried the retropie Project.
First Steps on my Desk was promising, NES & GBA working as hoped.
Than i Plugged my arcade controller into the Pi2 and it was recognised (i have a bit of experience with Linux but I’m no crack). And the setup was okay, i got it working.
My Problem: My Joystick is recognised as an AnalogJoystick, but triggerd by 4/8 microswitchs. So if you push it it goes 0 to 100 in one step. In my Windows Emulator System this works fine, but in Linux it doesn’t work as expected:
If I press the Button in the EmulationStation Menus it does not do 1 Menu Point but all, so selecting a Menu Entry by Joystick is more or less pure luck.
In the Emulators it shows another strange behavior: In the GB or NES Emu it presses the Direction “half” or triggers it often. Mario does not speed up to full speed.
