The newest Retropie-Setup-Script contains auto config files for PS3 controllers. The described behavior should only occur if the hotkey button “select” is pressed. If no hotkey button is defined the described problem occurs.
Please check if /RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg has the setting
input_enable_hotkey_btn = “0”
Hey there my problem is a little different. I’ve got my DualShock working completely in the Retroarch menus, but when I fire up a game I can’t do anything only the keyboard will get me out of the games. I’ve tried many different setups in /RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg but nothing seems to work when I’m in an emulator (I’m only using SNES and MAME)
