Hi all, I’m pretty noob to Linux, RetroPie, and basically all things encompassing an arcade machine made from a Raspberry Pi so I hope that you will bare this in mind when responding (please don’t take steps or information for granted.)
I have a board setup with two PS3 controllers worth of buttons (16 in total for each.) They’re both individually recognized in Emulation Station and work just great, I can get in and out of any menu’s and games as needed.
The problem I have is that when I enter any emulator / game, the only controls that are recognized are the attached keyboard. I have no idea how to enter any menu’s to config anything, I don’t seem to be able to exit and games via keyboard either and I’m just really not sure what’s going on. I’d just love to find a “Configure Controller” page but I just cannot find one for the life of me or find anything that helps me.
Thanks for any and all help!herbfargusMember04/28/2015 at 06:20Post count: 1858
If you are using retropie 3.0 there is an option to configure your controller in the retropie menu. If not you’ll have to configure it through the terminal.depressParticipant04/28/2015 at 06:41Post count: 6
I was able to get into the setup pages, but the RetroArch controller registration thing doesn’t recognize my button presses. All of the buttons work just fine and I can confirm that via jstest and they work perfectly in EmulationStation, but when I actually open an emulator it’s like they aren’t even connected, I can’t even get incorrect inputs from them.
I tried to edit the cfg file for the device (XinMo Encoder) and just punch in like input_b_btn = “2” but that didn’t seem to work for me either.herbfargusMember04/28/2015 at 07:13Post count: 1858
Was the .cfg file you edited this file?:
/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfgwhen you say you have 2 ps3 controllers worth of buttons are you saying you have two ps3 controllers? Or do you have an arcade stick setup or, is it something you put together yourself?depressParticipant04/28/2015 at 08:00Post count: 6
It’s an arcade stick setup that I put together myself. Sorry, I should have been more clear on that.
I… technically fixed it. Very very technically. I plugged in a USB SNES Controller, and pressing ‘Y’ on that brought up RetroArch’s menu in a game… I just, have no idea. Anyways, inside here I was able to bind everything to my setup correctly and it works fine except for one thing.
RetroArch seems to auto-bind certain things and it’s pretty inconvenient. I can disable auto-config but the damage has been done. I can’t figure out how to unbind my controller’s “R2” from opening the RetroArch menu, and I can’t figure out how to unbind keys in this menu. Any help on that?herbfargusMember04/28/2015 at 15:37Post count: 1858
The binding for R2 is a hotkey for RGUI see this video.
As far as i understand it, In the retroarch.cfg file it will be a line called
input_menu_toggle_btnit is also automatically added to the autoconfig file created when you run retroarch-joyconfig
