Hi all, firstly, and again, thank you to the developer for making RetroPie exist. I have had an interesting time with my project “Apple Piie” (see my other thread) and almost everything is working now as it should, with a few exceptions.
I have set up the wireless Xbox 360 controllers successfully, and both of them register in the Input Configuration, and I can configure every button correctly on Player 1 & 2, and they test perfectly in the config program.
However for some emulators, they do not control gameplay, with a few exceptions. I have tried:
Atari 800 – They won’t control anything (tried with Asteroids for Atari 400)
Apple //e – Won’t control anything
ZX Spectrum – Won’t control anything
EmulationStation menus – controls everything, can swipe left and right, menu, select
Input Config tests – works beautifully
Commodore 64, MAME4All, also work
To get the above to work I had to do some config work in each individual emulator’s settings, to map the joysticks to the same mapping that I thought I had done in Input Config. I’d politely recommend to the developer that this be automatic in future, if at all possible, otherwise there seems little need for Input Config if it is not in fact configuring any of the emulators.
So basically, half the emulators that recognize and utilize joysticks on Mac/PC, do not recognize joysticks on Raspberry Pi with RetroPie, even after trying to individually configure said emulators.

I’m having the exact same issue. I was initially excited that Retropie included support for my Xbox 360 controller — but after following hours of advice, it is clear that by “support” the developers only intend the Xbox 360 controller to work with emulationstation and Input Control. Using your controller to click through Input Control is fun and everything, but I had assumed that the claims about “Xbox 360 Support” applied to the games (not just to controlling the menuning system). I feel duped!trimmtrabbParticipant05/18/2014 at 01:36Post count: 480
Plenty of instructions on how to use xbox 360 pads, search the forum.IIeBoyParticipant05/18/2014 at 01:44Post count: 28
trimmtrabb, did you read this whole thread? I’d be amazed if the solution was anywhere as I certainly have searched.venkatrlParticipant05/18/2014 at 04:54Post count: 8
Would you happen to know of an alternative? Please take into account that I put up my post after reading the relevant literature from the forums (the specific resources are listed at the end of this post). It took hours, but after following all of the available advice, I’m still in the same spot.
trimmtrabb, it seems as though you have a working setup — that’s awesome. I’m sure there are a number of blog posts that you have read (that you have read that I have not). But in addition to merely pointing this out, do you think you could suggest a specific post (in addition to the ones I have listed at the end of this article) that could be a bit more helpful?

guys some of these emulators have completely separate configs for controllers, so some have to be mapped separately, zx Speccy emu is a pig to get configured! I’m still just using my keyboard for that, but as Trimmtrabb said the answers are about

I was replying to Venkatrl as he seems to be having trouble getting the pad working at all in any of the emulators.
As InsecureSpike said, there are seperate configs for certain emulators. I don’t use any of the emulators you have mentioned so you’ll have to do some research. RetroPie generally is pretty easy to get running ‘out of the box’ but sometimes you’ll run into these issues. Hope you find a solution.venkatrlParticipant05/19/2014 at 00:00Post count: 8IIeBoyParticipant05/19/2014 at 01:39Post count: 28
