    I currently have installed the RetroPieImage_Ver2.3 on my B+ Pi, I have expanded the memory and have mapped my GPIO controllers using this install guide:

    mkdir mkjoystick
    cd mkjoystick

    sudo sh ./

    sudo modprobe mk_arcade_joystick_rpi map=1,2

    I then tested with:

    jstest /dev/input/js0


    jstest /dev/input/js1

    and had great results, both controllers gave me this result:


    I then opened /etc/modules:

    sudo nano /etc/modules

    and added the line to load the driver:

    mk_arcade_joystick_rpi map=1,2

    Saved and rebooted. I am now able to use both home made controllers to navigate emulationstation after setting them up in ES BUT I can not seem to figure out how to get them to work with the ROM’s. I have tried hitting F1 when in game, no menu pops up. I have gone into startx GUI and used file manager to view all of the files including the hidden ones and I can not find any evidence of retroarch anywhere in the folders or .cfg files. I have been reading and posting at forums (over 80 posts) to try and get some help on fixing my issue to no avail so I though I would migrate over here and see if any of you good people could lend a hand. My project arcade is now complete with the exception of this issue, here is a few pictures of it:

    RetroPie off grid 1

    RetroPie off grid 2

    RetroPie off grid 3

    Any help would greatly be appreciated! I have been working 8 hours a day for the last 2 weeks trying to resolve this and am about to pull my hair out after spending over 600.00 on components and over 140 hours hand fabricating the RetroPie off grid box.

    OBTW I found an error (I think) on your how to page located here:

    part way down the page it says:

    Then you can download the latest RetroPie setup script with

    1 cd
    2 git clone git://

    which does not work unless you change this:

    git clone git://

    to this:

    git clone
