    Ignore me – didn’t see pmurch’s stuff until after I posted, lol.

    I was curious – one of the big things holding the Raspberry-pi 1 B+ back from N64 emulation was RAM, was it not? Wouldn’t increasing the pagefile space on the microSD card (I use a 32GB one…overkill, yes) fix that issue, or was it also the processor speed that was at work?

    If I catch wind that the 2.0 can handle N64, though, I’m ordering it ASAP.

    Are Playstation 1 games now in reach?

    After some more tinkering I’ve managed to get it to work.

    I went back to the guide at https://github.com/retropie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/Setting-up-the-XBox360-controller and instead of doing Method 1 (like I did previously), I went the Method 3 ‘daemon’ route.

    I did run into a few issues with Method 3 that I managed to fix (and will post these in another thread I saw with the same issues)

    – Make sure you’ve got the right end-of-line characters in the files. I had copied the scripts into notepad++ on windows and transferred it via thumb drive to the RaspberryPi. Nano didn’t show anything amiss in the file, but when I opened it in vi, I could see them. Clearing them out seemed to get me over the last hump to get the daemon service running

    – Blacklist the xpad service (don’t have to remove it). Add “blacklist xpad” to the file /etc/modprobe.d/raspi-blacklist.conf

    – I ran into something saying that xboxdrv needed root permissions for some things, meaning you needed your user to be in the root group (which is a bit of a security risk, usually), however I’ve since removed myself from the root group and things still run fine.

    – I also did not have to use the dwc_otg.speed=1 fix (I tried it once, but it stopped my keyboard from working and I had to start over from scratch)

    – I’ve kept my keyboard plugged in the whole time and didn’t notice anything weird about the indexing

    It’s probably also worth adding that when I run jstest /dev/input/js0 , everything runs normal and the Axes/Buttons respond.

    I’m going to give manual configuration a try now that I’ve written all of those down, but it would be nice to know why retroarch-joyconfig isn’t working and whether or not those configuration files need to be in my home directory or not.
