    Hi, this thread should help you configure your pad: https://www.petrockblock.com/forums/topic/required-input-a-not-mapped/

    No dice… err… sort of??? The pad now allows me to use all the buttons except the directional pad… tried messing with settings in the retroarch.cfg file and cant get the directional to work

    I can’t either. The directional pad (real NES controllers) doesn’t pick up appropriately for some reason.

    Does jtest not register any input from the d pad at all?

    not IN game… the directional works fine in the menu and I even plugged it into my laptop with an emulator program and it works just fine… so I know its not the controller… the problem is in the config file which I have yet to figure out… but im working on it… in the mean time if anyone can figure this out PLEASE let me know…

    up= -32656
    down= 32656
    left= -32656
    right= 32656

    don’t remember if those are the EXACT numbers… but its close

    alright all… sorry its taken me so long…

    ok so when i run jstest here is what i get when i press anything-

    axes 0: left= -32767
    right= 32767
    axes 1: up= -32767
    down= 32767
    buttons 0= , 1= A, 2= B, 3= , 4= , 5= , 6= , 7= , 8= SELECT, 9= START

    buttons 0,3,4,5,6,7 do not exist on this controller and the axis is a standard 4 way directional

    hope this helps
