Today I installed the new RetroPie 3.2 on my Raspberry Pi 2 and encountered a strange problem with my iBuffalo Classic USB Gamepad.
It worked fine on all older RetroPie versions and RetroArch on my notebook. But with RP 3.2, the d-pad isn’t working anymore … kind of. Everything works fine in Emulationstation, in the ncurses menus, I even can navigate the runcommand menu. But when the game starts, the d-pad axis don’t work. To be accurate: I can switch the savestates by using the hotkey button in combination with left or right. But otherwise, I get no response. Pressing buttons in RGUI? No problem. But using the d-pad? No chance.
I configured the gamepad via Emulationstation, tried the RetroArch Autoconfig, looked for something messed up in the retroarch.cfg, deleted the cfg for the gamepad a few times – nothing helps.
This is a rather odd problem. My Xbox 360 gamepad works as it should (but you know, it has a veery crappy d-pad). Any help would be appreciated, thx in advance. 🙂
Man I was going crazy! I received my raspi2 2 days ago with the snes like pads. I was going crazy. The joystick worked fine on the menu but on the game the dpad doen’t work! I follow every single guide on the internet. I re writed the sd, I build from sources…
This works for me. After I deleted that lines I had to reconfigure the joystick from the emulator menu.
