I’m running Retropie 2.6, and have a similar issue.
I can enable Xarcade2Jstick from the retropie setup menu, but nothing happens after it says “xarcade service enabled”. I hit OK, exit, and still, when I disconnect my keyboard, my buttons and joysticks on xarcade don’t work in my roms.
@herbfargus the url is useful for rom setup but not so much for the controller config issue wolf and myself seem to be encountering.
Anyone have an idea what could be the issue? Thanks!
