    Absolutely LOVING the implementation overall, but I’m having trouble with two items. I currently am using a Microsoft Sidewinder gamepad, seen here:

    1. When I want to exit a game running in the NES emulator, I can’t. I have tried the instructions below and it did work a couple of times:


    But at some point the configuration seemed to vanish and I haven’t been able to get it working again.

    2. When I am in MAME, I have not been able to get the insert coin and start game key mappings to work.

    I’m not particularly tied to this particular joystick/gamepad. If there is another one that is known to work with the items above (exiting the emulator, inserting coin and starting game), could you let me know? Or if there is a solution that would not require me to get a new controller, that’s good too! My goal is to break this down to having a simple Pi box, and a couple of controllers – no keyboard.

    Thank you,


    Please disregard – after starting fresh with the same image I am no longer getting this issue!
