    Hi all,

    I’ve compiled RetroPie 2.2 on a Raspberry PI B+ and it seems to be working, except for one problem. I’ve got it connected to an XBox 360 wireless (USB dongle) controller(s). When I configure this, it seems to work, I can navigate the UI with the controller fine. However, when I start a game, the game seems to only recognize the A, B and Y buttons, but not the directional D-Pad. Does anyone have any suggestions, pointers to help me diagnose this problem?

    Thanks in advance!!



    Did you run the setup script and register the controller? After that make sure you’re retroarch. Cfg file is pointed to the correct directory for auto detect configs /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/configs you can also edit that file to your liking (enable hotkeys and what not) hope this helps

    My retroarch.cfg file was looking in the wrong spot for the auto config files
