    The default SNES emulator isn’t working for me. After a couple minutes within any game, the game would freeze. But I could use my PS3 controller within the default emulator for that small amount of time.

    I’ve read PiSNES emulator works well so I wanted to give it a shot. I understand it doesn’t use the RetroArch config for the controller mappings. I believe I’ve mapped the correct button layout for the PS3 controller in the snes9x.cfg file within the pisnes folder.

    The PS3 controller still works great within RetroPie but doesn’t seem to work at all within PiSNES.

    I am not sure if I am missing something.

    I am running the most current build of RetroPie.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
