[quote=1406]No luck. Does everyone who wants to control their emulations ration menu with their player 1 controller have to go through these steps? I assume I am missing something obvious here. Should I just start from scratch with the latest image? [/quote]

I am afraid that using the latest image won’t help here.

  • You have to configure Emulation Station for your joystick: Therefore, a screen in Emulation Station will pop-up at start after a gamepad has been recognized for the first time. The settings for Emulation Station are then saved in the file /home/pi/.emulationstation/es_input.cfg.
  • You have to configure RetroArch for your joystick. Please refer to for questions about specific controllers.
  • If you are using SNESDev, make sure that you are using exactly the pins as described at!
  • If your controllers for player 1 and 2 are swapped, another option (compared to the ones stated above) would be to change the settings in /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

Unfortunately, setting up the controllers for your RetroPie system heavily depends on the very specific hardware setup of the individual users.
