I searched and I couldn’t find specifically a topic on how to set up a Sega Saturn USB controller. I have a SNES USB style one that works flawlessly, however I gotta have that Saturn D-pad for some games, any tips?lostmuppetParticipant06/12/2015 at 01:18Post count: 12
What version of retropie are you using? because I can’t get the D-pad to work on v3.0 beta 3 but works flawlessly on v3.0 beta 2.
Saturn controller is the best pad ever made 2D games.AnonymousInactive06/12/2015 at 02:04Post count: 51
Im not sure if I am configuring it correctly, when I register it with retro arch it doesn’t allow for the C, and Z buttons, and when I attempted to play with a profile it just scrolled save states and reset when I pressed B.lostmuppetParticipant06/13/2015 at 02:43Post count: 12
Ah ha I think you miss understand, the button prompts on registering a retroarch controller are referring mostly to the snes controller that has A,B,X,Y face buttons only .
This is the sequence of buttons presses I use for registering a retroarch controller with the saturn pad.
L-shoulder button (used for select button as the saturn pad does not have one.)
The rest of the button prompts I leave blank as they are mostly for the Playstation controls.
This works well for MEGA CD/SEGA CD, GENESIS/MEGA DRIVE and 32X emulator picodrive. Just don’t forget that you have to enable the 6 button pad in the emulator menu while running a game by holding the L-shoulder button and pressing Y to toggle in and out of the menu, otherwise it will only use the A B and C buttons.
To save game with this setup hold the L-shoulder button and press Z to save state and X to load state. To change save slot hold the L-shoulder but and press left or right on the D-pad.
Again I must stress that this was made to be used mainly with Sega games and I’m not sure how well this would work with other emulators.herbfargusMember06/13/2015 at 03:20Post count: 1858
See the diagram at the bottom of the page here for which buttons to configure with retroarch:AnonymousInactive06/13/2015 at 06:40Post count: 51
Thanks for the help! I was not seeing what the issue was, this is great!
