I can fix it if I switch emulators to PiSNES, so I know the 2nd controller is capable of working. But PiSNES has its own problems (Right Bumper exits the game, glitchy Yoshi’s Island and Mario All Stars) so I’d rather keep it on the default emulator for now.
I also read that back in 2013, there was a legitimate bug involving a controller index in the source code… but this issues seems to have been sorted out some time ago. At the very least, the current source code looks nothing like the suggested fix.
I just want to play some Donkey Kong Country as a 2 person team! =P If anyone has actually gotten 2 controllers working fine, can you post what controllers you used, your configuration files, and how you got everything functioning correctly?
This is one of the most frustrating, ridiculous experiences I’ve had with this project. I’ve been working on it for the past 8 days with no success. Aside from learning more about Linux, this Raspberry Pi/Retro Console project has been mostly a waste of time.
