I just tried to hook up an Xarcade joysitck (I think it’s a tankstick, it looks exactly like the picture at http://blog.petrockblock.com/2014/06/01/xarcade2jstick/). When I try and startup the pi with the Xarcade joystick plugged in it goes into a bootloop (it seems to go to around 2.6 then the screen flashes and starts over). I tried this the first time before I installed any software, then I tried installing the Xarcade from the retropie setup (with the stick not plugged in) and got the same result.
Anyone out there have any ideas?
I’m on a B+, I have a Belkin N150 wireless dongle plugged into my pi and tried with a keyboard plugged in and without.
