Homepage Forums RetroPie Project Controller Configuration in RetroPie Bizarre arcade button issue on 2 USB controllers Reply To: Bizarre arcade button issue on 2 USB controllers


So I figured this out. I wanted to post a summary of what I had done wrong in case anyone ever stumbles upon this thread.

As it turns out, I had wired the microswitches for my buttons incorrectly. I was using the “C” (common) terminal and the “NC” (normally closed) terminal. What this means is that the button was firing when not being hit and then would stop when you pressed it in. I have no idea why the emulators were ever registering any presses in this configuration, but they were. Once I switched over to using the “C” and “NO” (normally open) terminals, everything was just fine.

All it took was me getting frustrated enough to post on the forums to get the answer.
