    OK, I have the second one working now, so fingers crossed my SnesPi is almost complete.

    Thanks for the help……………

    Ok I have re soldered the board again as the first effort was poor to say the least and YAY! I have one controller working!

    Well at least it shows up in JTEST and works on the retroarch controller setup.

    My only issue now is that the second controller is not being picked up by Jtest or the retroarch setup.

    Any ideas?

    I think it will be fine with the heatsinks, especially if you’re only running 16bit and lower stuff. I’ve been running them on my pi2 with little to no issues inside my SnesPi.

    Yes the LED will light up on the original board if you configure it how it’s recommended.

    As for the Xbox controller adapter, I cannot offer you any advice I’m afraid.

    Post up some pictures though dude, I’m very interested. I can’t actually get my gpio adapter to work at the mo so you may be able to help me.

    I did notice that I had the crimp connector on the wrong way so I changed this round, but still no go.

    I’m running 3.0 beta 4 on a Pi 2. Currently I’m only able to use a PS3 controller on it.

    – Built from SD image
    – Installed SNESDev from source and in retropie to see if that worked, alas it didn’t.
    – GPIO adapter installed using instructions on PetRockBlock.
    – original snes controllers being used.
    – adapter is wired up to original snes controller board pins.

    Is your WiFi ssid set as hidden?
    For some reason mine will never connect if it’s set as hidden on my router. When it’s not, it connects perfectly.

    I have an update. If I remove the dongle prior to turning on, turn on the Pi and then plug in the dongle, it works. But it will not work if its already in the USB slot prior to booting. Anyone know what this could be?

    Great project bro. Could you explain in more detail how you wired up the reset button. I’m going to start my project this week and I’ve been struggling to find anyone who can explain it.

    This is fantastic. Going to start my project this week but it will not be as smooth as I have little to no idea what I’m doing, but that’s the beauty of it. Learning as you go along. Way to go man.

    On a side note, did you consider using the reset switch at all during the project? Would the control block facilitate this?
