Finally it seems a budget fight/arcade stick is going to make its way to my new setup!
But I was wondering if there would be any reason for this not to work with RetroPie?
It seems it is a regular USB interface so I would not expect a problem but before I spend money on it I would like to make sure.
Any help is greatly appreciated before I order 2 of these babies!FloobMember01/09/2016 at 16:15Post count: 1629
Its difficult to say with certainty, as it seems to depend on the chipset the controller uses inside.
For example, I have one of these:
The Raspberry Pi just didnt want to know, so I bought something very similar to this:
and had it fitted in the arcade stick and I was away. No problems at all.
This forum may know more about the compatibility:
If you want to splash out more cash you could get one of these:shoothereParticipant01/10/2016 at 08:31Post count: 131
Well this seems encouraging! I would expect if jstest registers it then it looks like one step closer to victory!sludgepondParticipant01/12/2016 at 14:21Post count: 3
I’m currently setting up my first raspberry Pi with retro pie and have one of these controllers sitting in the box to use. I’ll update when I get a chance to set it up. I started with using Hori’s Fighting Pad and it works perfect so I don’t see I’ll have an issue with the arcade stick.shoothereParticipant01/12/2016 at 15:46Post count: 131
Wow sludgepond, that would be truly awesome!
Would love for you to keep us updated!
Finally an affordable stick, so I hope it works well!sludgepondParticipant01/13/2016 at 02:21Post count: 3
Works like a charm in Retropie 3! Feels great when playing some Neo Geo games :)
Let me know if you want video proof, I can provide by the weekend.shoothereParticipant01/13/2016 at 12:12Post count: 131
No I will take your word for it!
This is very good news and indeed, NeoGeo or CPS games will feel a lot more authentic.
Now it’s just the long wait for the online store to stock them (they said this week but meh…).
Thank you ever so much for taking the doubts away.shoothereParticipant01/16/2016 at 09:33Post count: 131
Well they didn’t come in this week :(
I find it surprising how hard it is to find fightsticks without paying outrageous shipping costs.
Ah well patience is a virtue I guess!shoothereParticipant01/19/2016 at 14:35Post count: 131
wooo! According to Track & Trace they should have been delivered! Can’t wait to hook’em up when I get home!shoothereParticipant01/26/2016 at 18:33Post count: 131
Only just got around to trying it and wow…. My wife had a great time because she was actually winning games. I guess 20 years away from a real joystick messed up my skills!
Awesome Joystick for the price (€40 here) but you do feel it is a lower end of the spectrum.
Super happy with the purchase. Will start this weekend with setting up a second player but I do not expect much hassle.
