Newbie here to retropie Was trying to get virtual gamepad from experimental setups.
The installation completes fully and then when I try to reach the IP through phone or laptop The remote doesn’t show up and chrome says the page is not available.
Please let me know of any logs that you might need
My guess is that the package doesn’t work on Jessie at allherbfargusMember01/29/2016 at 16:23Post count: 1858
I’ve tested it on Jessie and it worked for me. You sure that your phone is connected to the same network as your pi?jaspreet97Participant01/29/2016 at 17:17Post count: 9

I can ssh into pi with the same phone . I did not apt get update upgrade on the pi though Does that have a effect?herbfargusMember01/30/2016 at 01:40Post count: 1858
I just installed it again from a fresh image and it works fine, so its possible something may have happened during your install or some other issue with your network possibly.jaspreet97Participant01/30/2016 at 04:09Post count: 9

Thanks for the effort I tried it fresh again and still the same issue. I have a netgear router Maybe its blocking?
What port does node.js work on?
Maybe adding the port after IP can help??herbfargusMember01/30/2016 at 04:59Post count: 1858
its port 80 but I think it can be changed in the config.json maybe.
But if its on the same network I don’t see how that would block the port that way, but I am not familiar enough with network protocols to know how that stuff all works.jaspreet97Participant01/30/2016 at 06:03Post count: 9
i tried adding port 80 but that didnt help . i am trying with a different router now.
i screenshotted all the steps of installtion if that might help
you can see in the last SS that its working fineherbfargusMember01/30/2016 at 06:34Post count: 1858
Yeah it looks like it installed fine, so it probably is a network issue of sorts but I wouldn’t have any idea on where to begin troubleshootingjaspreet97Participant01/30/2016 at 15:05Post count: 9
I started fresh again and got this error this time.
Am about to give up on VirtualPad and invest in a wireless gamepad I have a few wired ones but due to location of my rpi Can’t use them.herbfargusMember01/30/2016 at 17:27Post count: 1858
I installed mine directly with a USB keyboard rather than over ssh, I don’t know if that makes a difference. Really it’s more a novelty than a practicality and I’d definitely recommend hardware over it if you have it.jaspreet97Participant02/09/2016 at 08:49Post count: 9
Hey i got it to work with another router but now i have another problem.
I have to configure the virtual gamepad everytime i restart or boot retropie.
Can i make configuration permanent?herbfargusMember02/09/2016 at 09:50Post count: 1858
I had a similar issue the first time I installed it
Can’t for the life of me remember how I resolved it, it may have just been a fluke. are you making it an app on your homescreen? https://github.com/retropie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/Virtual-Gamepad#use-it-as-a-smartphone-application-chrome-for-android (Note that you have to configure it in the browser first before you make the app or else emulationstation wont configure properly)
Its possible the device ID is dynamic and changes anytime the network changes (i.e. on a reboot) especially likely if run from a browser rather than a homescreen app.jaspreet97Participant02/09/2016 at 13:26Post count: 9
i think I found a fix.
I changed the inputconfig type line to this
<inputConfig type=”joystick” deviceName=”Virtual gamepad ” deviceGUID=”03000000030000000300000002000000″>
i found it from es_temporaryinput file.
That helped and the settings are sticking now
Thank you for all the help Herbfargus. Your videos on youtube have been helpful too
