    I had RetroPie running well with 2 PS3 DualShock controllers on my Pi3 until I tried to add a third controller (hoping to play 4 player Mario Kart 64).

    Not sure what went wrong, but now my first 2 controllers only appear as controller 3 and 4 (going by the lights on the DualShock controllers). They were previously controller 1 and 2.

    This means that I can no longer control any of my SNES games as presumably it needs controller 1 and 2.

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    I’ve tried uninstalling RetroPie and reinstalling and setting up the controllers again but the problem persists.

    Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks 🙂
