    I tried your suggestion label whore but still no luck. I might just have to start from scratch? Disappointing that I’ve not been able to set it up already.

    [quote=118877]Between when its working ok, and creates the .bak file what happens?
    Just a restart?

    What does the retroarch controller folder look like before and after?
    Does ES prompt you to re-enter the controller details at any point?

    Yes, either a restart through the menu or turning the raspberry pi off and on at the socket.

    The retroarch-joystick folder starts with the 8BitdoSFC30GamePadJoystick.cfg that I have updated with the correct inputs, at restart it creates the .bak file of my updated .cfg and recreates the default .cfg. ES does not prompt me to re-enter the controller details. Think it’d be worth starting from scratch?

    [quote=118879]To change permissions do this: sudo chmod -w <path/to/file>
    the -w means remove write permissions.

    To change ownership (if it’s owned by the pi user) sudo chown root:root <path/to/file>

    I’d highly recommend that you take a look at this and get to know some of these commands. Doing so will make life much easier when making changes to your pi.

    Thanks for this I really appreciate it – I’ll look into this and give it a go!

    Hi labelwhore, I’m afraid I’m fairly new to this – how would I go about doing what you’ve suggested?

    Hi Floob,

    I’ve been having a similar issue to Steve in this thread (which he’s kindly tried to help me with):

    If you could have a look I’d really appreciate your thoughts.

    I couldn’t get my controller to connect via Bluetooth again so I started the process again.

    I unregistered and removed the SFC30 then connected it again. I then restarted the Raspberry Pi. I then updated the .cfg file again to map the buttons correctly – all worked fine. I then restarted, it created a .bak file with the cfg file I updated then created a new .cfg file with the default button mappings.

    From here I updated the .cfg again, deleted the .bak and file and rebooted. The .cfg file went back to default.

    At the end of my tether with this :(

    Hi Steve,

    I did everything in the order you said and it appears to have worked! Have restarted the raspberry pi multiple times (including at the plug) and the .cfg file is staying the same without adding a bak – thank you!

    Annoying though my controllers randomly lost the ability to connect via bluetooth – I’m hoping it’s due to low battery and I’m charging now. Fingers crossed.

    Thanks for your help thus far.

    Thanks for this Steve, haven’t had a chance to try this yet though it sounds similar to what I tried before but after a couple of restarts it defaulted again.

    I will try it out and report back.

    Thanks for the reply, let me know how you get on – literally the last thing needed to get the RetroPie up and running comfortably! (Though might risk another 8bitdo controller if we can get this working)

    Edit:

    Tell a lie, after a few restarts it does it again – thought updating the back up file and the new .cfg file would fix it but hasn’t seemed to, just gets overriden.
