The controllers are detected and usable in Retropie-Setup and any similar GUI menus but aren’t detected via Emulation Station or RetroArch. I’ve tried using all available drivers in RetroArch to no avail. Details:
Pi Model: 2
RetroPie Version Used: 3.6
Built From: Binary
It seems like it does depend on the emulator. The default emulator for SNES games seems to be lr-snes9x-next, which doesn’t detect the controller at all. As a test I switched the emulator to snes9x and for the most part the controller works save some button mappings (start and select don’t work). So I guess the question becomes:
How do I enable the controller both in Emulation Station (when I try to map controllers it doesn’t detect the controller at all) as well as in lr-snes9x-next. My suspicion is that solving in one will solve for everything. Thanks so much for responding with that little hint.
Some emulators exit when I press ‘Start’ or don’t start at all w/ certain ROMs. I have to fiddle w/ emulators for each game. Select your emu of choice by pressing left/right a lot when the emu starts up. You see a dialog screen then which lets you select an emulator of choice.
