I’ve been trying to get RetroPie setup properly for a while now and it is becoming increasingly frustrating.
Firstly, I spent a while on a version (1.x or so), in which I could configure the USB controller for the menu successfully but had no luck with RetroArch; my config appeared to be ignored, it still used the keyboard.
When I updated to the latest version (the one that is live now), I was pleased with many of the improvements. Unfortunately, the controller still does not work with RetroArch despite functioning fully and working with the main menu.
It is a PS2 (NOT a PS3) controller with a USB adapter but works in the exact same format as an USB joypad and I am incredibly confused as to why I need to go to such lengths to get it working with RetroArch.
So, my questions to you smart people:
– What file do I need to edit to get my controller working, now that many files have been moved to /opt?
– What should be in this file for an ordinary USB joypad?
Also, please may I ask you to not just link me to a tutorial, as I have tried many and they all seem to be outdated or futile.
Thanks! It’s useful to be able to exit the emulator without the keyboard 🙂 Is it possible to make it so that you have to hold two buttons?
Two further questions I have also uncovered from this. Firstly, the Gameboy emulator does not show up on emulation station; only gameboy advance. How can I rectify this? Additionally, on the NES the buttons are weird – there appears to be no A/B button (I have tried all of them) – what my be causing this?
All help greatly appreciated 🙂
EDIT: nevermind, I’m stupid; both were silly mistakes that I have now resolved
I’m having a similar problem with NES. It’s registering the A button, but not the B. All other buttons work fine, and it’s only with the NES emulator (This is using a PS3 controller via USB). Please share your solution!
