Alright, having some trouble getting this figured out now.
I had been using a USB SNES controller and had it configured properly. Now I have built a little bartop cabinet and have 8 Happ buttons and a Happ joystick running through a Zero Delay Encoder to use as a “usb gamepad”.
Upon launching I can easily set up the joystick and buttons to work in the emulation station controller configuration but when I launch games it goes back to thinking there should be a USB SNES controller plugged in and nothing works.
I assume I have to reset some commands somewhere or what not. Looking for a little help.
