    i have installed retropie 3.2.1
    I configured Xbox controller successfuly. After that i connected a diffrent controller. The configuration in emulationstation workt perfect and the controller works in the menu. But there was no configuration file in /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch-joypads for that controller. So the controller is not working with the games (retroarch).
    By the way retropie_setup has no option for configuring the controller any more.
    i think ist was 316 but its not there anymore.

    Question: How i can set up a new controller for retroarch.

    Second problem is that the usb stick i connected, no directory structure for the roms is created. I activated the service with the retropie_setup but no change.

    Version 2.6 worked so perfect, but 3.2.1 not.



    Autoconfigs were depreciated by retroarch. They should be created when configuring through emulationstation or alternatively you can configure them from the rgui

    For the usb transfer Read the documentation:



    thanks for usb link (i have not look into the wiki, sorry)

    autoconfig retroarch is not supported?

    cat /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg | egrep “autodetect|joypad_autoconfig_dir”

    input_autodetect_enable = true
    # corresponding to that joypad is present in joypad_autoconfig_dir.
    # Requires input_autodetect_enable to be enabled.
    joypad_autoconfig_dir = /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch-joypads/

    I think whats not support is the preconfigured joypad by retropie (from 2.6)

    what I have done is (it worked for me):

    cd /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch-joypads/
    sudo /opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch-joyconfig -a joypad.cfg -j0 -t 4
    CFG_NAME=$(cat joypad.cfg | grep “input_device” | cut -f 2 -d \” | tr -d ” “)
    mv joypad.cfg $CFG_NAME.cfg
