I’ve got exactly the same issue (got my own Thread in Controller Configuration for that topic, but no answers until now). I was able to configure both controllers (XBox 360 Wireless controller with the XBox 360 Driver installed) fine in ES, but the only thing I can do in the emulators is to bring on the Screen with “Welcome to retroarch…” and then I have to kill the process to quit, because it’s seems like it’s frozen. I can use Select + Start to quit, before opening the menu anyway. Tried every .cfg file, with or without XBox 360 drivers. Same result.
