I tried to configure a USB-NES controller in RetroPie, but something went wrong.
I tried to remove the config-file in /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch-joypads/ in hope that I could end up with “a new gamepad” is connected in RetroPie, but I was wrong.
How can I do to get this gamepad work as I want to?
I have the config-file saved on my computer, but pasting that to /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch-joypads/ won’t help at all.FloobMember03/06/2016 at 13:24Post count: 1629
When in Emulation Station you could re-create the file by pressing Start on the controller and entering the Input controller menu.elgur85Participant03/06/2016 at 14:09Post count: 34

And if I cannot enter that menu with my controller?ruckageParticipant03/06/2016 at 16:09Post count: 54
I think the file you probably need is /home/pi/.emulationstation/es_input.cfg
Edit this file and delete the section relevant to your controller (make a backup first though just to be on the safe side.)
Reboot the Pi with you controller connected and it should then hopefully start the controller configuration program.
Also if you’ve configured emulationstation to work with a keyboard you could just use that to access the input controller menu which would be easier.meneerjansenParticipant03/06/2016 at 16:28Post count: 97

[off topic] How does one do that? I’d like to be able to control Emulationstation w/ my keyboard.  When looking for the answer for the TS I found it (
sudo ~/RetroPie-Setup/retropie_setup.shAnd then: “Setup (post install) –> Configure Retroarch controller” (or “Configure keyboard for use w/ Retroarch” to configure a keyboard).). [edit again] That doesn’t work in Emulation station. Only in Retroarch (i.e. when you’ve started a game). => Configure the use of a keyboard in Emulationstation the same way you’d configure a joystick.
[on topic] If you’ve got a spare controller lying around you could connect that one to your Pi and press ‘Select’ –> ‘Configure input’.
