    Hey Guys i cant get it to work i tried everything but i cant get my Xbox360 controller connected via usb hub to work corectly
    can someone send me the config txt for a xbox360 controller?



    hi zantos,

    have you tried to follow this guide from the wiki? I strongly recommend you to go for the #3 init script solution.

    Just to be sure, I’ve shared my piFBA and SNES Retroarch config files in another posts. You should give it a try. I’m using a *wireless* xbox 360 controller but it should be ok.

    hope this helps.



    sorry your config is completly broken for me 🙁
    how can i figure out wich number belongs to wich button? or can someone send me a wired xbox config?

    why is this so complicatet btw updatet from 1 to 2.2 tought it will be easier but nope 😀



    You don’t need to install xboxdrv on the latest RetroPie image. Just plug the pad in and follow prompts to configure Emulation Station after boot.

    Then to configure controls for most of the emulators (the Retroarch cores):

    sudo chown pi /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg
    cd /opt/retropie/emulators/RetroArch/installdir/bin
    sudo ./retroarch-joyconfig -j 0 >> /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

    ^^ If -j 0 does not work try -j 1

    If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.



    Thanks it worked 😀

    but now i have another problem the snes uses my dpad as the move buttons but i want the left analog stick so i changed in the snes folder the retroarch.cfg

    and added this

    input_player1_up_btn = "+1"
    input_player1_down_btn = "-1"
    input_player1_left_btn = "-0"
    input_player1_right_btn = "+0"

    and here are my regular settings in the all folder

    input_player1_l_x_plus_axis = "+0"
    input_player1_l_x_minus_axis = "-0"
    input_player1_l_y_plus_axis = "+1"
    input_player1_l_y_minus_axis = "-1"

    after this change when i press a he jumps AND turn left and no direction moves works. Someone know why?

    (bad english)



    I’m not sure, you can use jtest to work out which buttons are which:

    jstest /dev/input/js0

    If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.
