    Hardware
    Raspberry Pi B+
    microSD Card – 16GB
    USB keyboard
    USB RetroPad adapter for NES
    Original NES controller

    RetroPie Version – 2.3

    Software Steps completed
    sudo rpi-update
    sudo raspi-config
    – Expand Filesystem
    sudo reboot
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo rpi-update
    sudo reboot
    cd RetroPie-Setup
    sudo ./retropie_setup.sh
    update the scripts
    update binaries
    sudo reboot
    sudo apt-get install joystick

    Ran
    jstest /dev/input/js0
    verified – B=0, A=1, select=2, start=3, D-Pad Up=-1,Down=1,Left=-0,Right=0

    cd RetroPie-Setup
    sudo ./retropie_setup.sh
    Setup-Samba ROM Shares
    Setup-Register RetroArch controller
    ran through controller registration and it completed and stated ‘RetroUSB.comRetroPad.cfg will be used by RetroArch from now on…’

    dropped a single ROM file into roms/nes
    sudo reboot
    controller works in EmulatorStation, select ROM, it loads and no controller buttons work or d-pad

    /opt/retropie/emulators/RetroArch/configs/RetroUSB.comRetroPad.cfg
    input_device = “RetroUSB.com RetroPad”
    input_driver = “udev”
    input_b_btn = “0”
    input_select_btn = “2”
    input_start_btn = “3”
    input_up_axis = “-1”
    input_down_axis = “+1”
    input_left_axis = “-0”
    input_right_axis = “+0”
    input_a_btn = “1”

    Attached – retroarch.cfg from /opt/retropie/configs/all

    I’ve also tried the below on a previous build. But, this build I did not run this:
    cd /opt/retropie/emulators/RetroArch/installdir/bin
    sudo ./retroarch-joyconfig -j 1 >> /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

    Please help, I’m at my wits end. What am I doing wrong?

    The file you need to edit is retroarch.cfg in /opt/retropie/configs/all

    Here is mine for example, use it as a template. More config options here:
    https://github.com/libretro/RetroArch/blob/master/retroarch.cfg

    Note ‘joypad_index’, this is the number your gamepad is assigned. Looking at your post above 0 should be right

    input_player1_joypad_index = “0” input_player1_b_btn = “1” input_player1_y_btn = “3” input_player1_select_btn = “8” input_player1_start_btn = “9” input_player1_up_axis = “-5” input_player1_down_axis = “+5” input_player1_left_axis = “-4” input_player1_right_axis = “+4” input_player1_a_btn = “0” input_player1_x_btn = “2” input_player1_l_btn = “4” input_player1_r_btn = “5” input_player1_l2_btn = “6” input_player1_r2_btn = “7” input_player1_l3_btn = “11” input_player1_r3_btn = “12” input_player1_l_x_plus_axis = “+0” input_player1_l_x_minus_axis = “-0” input_player1_l_y_plus_axis = “+1” input_player1_l_y_minus_axis = “-1” input_player1_r_x_plus_axis = “+2” input_player1_r_x_minus_axis = “-2” input_player1_r_y_plus_axis = “+3” input_player1_r_y_minus_axis = “-3” input_enable_hotkey_btn = “8” input_exit_emulator_btn = “9” input_enable_hotkey_btn = “8” input_save_state_btn = “5” input_enable_hotkey_btn = “8” input_load_state_btn = “4” input_enable_hotkey_btn = “8” input_state_slot_increase_btn = “7” input_enable_hotkey_btn = “8” input_state_slot_decrease_btn =”6″ input_enable_hotkey_btn = “8” input_menu_toggle_btn = “3”

    You don’t have to assign all of those buttons by the way just remove the ones you don’t need although the hotkeys are useful
