thank you Anthony for your reply, after many hours of searching, going through the setup again and again, it seems i still have the same problem. I have managed to get somewhat closer to fixing my problem though =]. ok…so I have found the script that needs to be input into es_input.cfg file for my adapter from the emulationstation guy in a random post i found through google.

        <inputConfig type="joystick" deviceName="INNEX NES Controller USB">
                <input name="a" type="button" id="0" value="1" />
                <input name="b" type="button" id="1" value="1" />
                <input name="select" type="button" id="2" value="1" />
                <input name="menu" type="button" id="3" value="1" />
                <input name="right" type="axis" id="0" value="1" />
                <input name="down" type="axis" id="1" value="1" />
                <input name="left" type="axis" id="0" value="-1" />
                <input name="up" type="axis" id="1" value="-1" />

i posted it here so that it can be easier to other people to cut and paste into the .cfg. now the next problem i have is that i am not able to find es_input.cfg anywhere in the folders. I do know its a hidden folder, but I would like to know, is it possible to find this cfg from startx and if so, what is the process for doing so. once i can find the cfg im hoping i will be able to open it in notepad and paste the code in there to allow my gamepad to work. I would appreciate it greatly if someone could help me get to the point were i have the es_input.cfg opened in notepad so i can paste and save. thank you all.
