I seem to have everything up and running except that the joystick doesnt work in any of my games! This and when I installed the driver for the xbox controller it changed the gui of the emulationstation to be VERY basic and just plain white. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
I got the gui working again. The controller still doesnt have any joystick or dpad working. I can jump and use almost every other button just not move. I went into the retroarch thing to setup and can’t get any of the buttons to work there. The light on the controller is lit and not blinking
I suggest you go here and delete the xbox files. It seems that petrockblock’s personal xbox controller maps differently than ours. On mine everything was good except for start/select/L2/R2 which were pair switched. (start was R2 and select was L2 and vice versa).
if you delete them you can manually configure retroarch like you would with any controller you would plug in like usb snes controllers. F1 on your keyboard and then scroll to settings and input and then map them. I prefer this as you can have different maps for different consoles where the snes style map may not feel as natural.
Alright, I did everything you did in the video and when i go to setup retroarch it prompts me to disconnect everything, i hit okay, it does a thing in like 1 second and says it saved the file as .cfg. It doesn’t even give me the option to type anything in.
