I am newer to the Raspberry Pi scene, although wanting one for years. I picked one up and installed Retropie for it, after playing on my usb Snes controller I decided that it would be really fun to get a joystick! My question is which one is the best? Which one has enough buttons for all the emulators? Which one is easiest to set up? Thanks In Advance!krux02Participant11/17/2014 at 16:38Post count: 8
retroarch makes it incredibly hard to configure anything that is not like a Play Station 2 controller (one hat, two analog sticks with one button each, 4 shoulder buttons, 4 thumb buttons, Start Select. Anything more than that, like 6 thumb buttons like sega consoles, are at it’s best useless.proxycellParticipant11/17/2014 at 17:35Post count: 203
@krux02 – I’m not so sure about that… I’m testing my RetroPies these days using nothing but SNES-style USB controllers by Tomee.
@cheekee – I would say that that any controller with a total of 6 “game” buttons, a start, select and at least one d-pad should be fine. So yeah… any SNES-style controller lol…
I have had good experiences with the Xbox 360 (wired) controller as well but that requires the installation of another driver.cheekeeParticipant11/18/2014 at 03:23Post count: 2
