    Finally got my raspberry pi3, added the usb quirk and everything worked first time.
    For anyone not use to using the terminal for finding the cmdline to add the usb quirk,
    The easiest way is as follows:

    1: put your sd card into the pc or laptop and open the files.
    2: Open the cmdline file.
    3: at the end of the line tap space then enter the usb quirk.

    If your going to input lsusb to find your controller number its best to unplug everything from the USB ports and just leave your controller USB and keyboard connected, much less confusing then.

    bjkidder are you using the xin mo dual arcade joysticks/buttons?

    I’m using the raspberry pi b model (first one) just to test my setup then was going to order a raspberry pi3 but don’t know if it’s safe to do so now or not

    Yeah I have a 20″ wide screen monitor in mine also, the amplifier I have is really small just looks big in the pics I’ve heard the sound output is not overly load but just enough.
    If you just router out the back of the button cuts to whatever thickness you need for the snap in buttons that should work

    I fixed my start/button problem for player2, was down to an error on my part when wiring.
    Buttons layout needs to be exactly as it is in the diagram.
    Now player 1 start/select won’t work: )
    Got around it by mapping controls in each emulator the configuring player 1 in emulation station gui again.

    Feederchain any chance this kernel could be updated for pi3 please

    I was going to order a raspberry pi3 but don’t know if I should now or not, would it take much to update this kernel for the pi3?

    Yes that’s the instructable I followed, if you have any questions regarding the build let me know as some of that guide is not very clear.

    I can give you the photoshop template I made for making the artwork also.

    Thanks,

    The monitor I’m using doesn’t have built in speakers so I’ll be using a small subwoofer and two 4 inch speakers built into the marquee facing up.
    The subwoofer is just a 12v power with audio jack that plugs straight into the raspberry pi.
    Video output is a Hdmi to dvi cable.

    Try sudo nano /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

    Scroll down to hot keys and remove the comment # on which ever line you want to apply.

    First I just want to say thank you feederchain for this kernel, after a week of banging my head against the wall I finally got player 2 working.

    The only problem I’m having now is player 2 start/select buttons are not working now, they work in the emulation station gui but not in the emulators themselves.
    Did anyone else have similar issues?

    I’m using the xin mo dual usb and taken the following steps so far:
    1 Installed the kernel
    2 Applied usb quirk to cmd.text
    3 Configured joysticks and buttons in /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

    jstest is showing all buttons working as they should and it’s only when using emulators player 2 start select will not work.
    I have tried configuring snes emulator manually putting all my control mappings above the #include line and still nothing.

    Any help on this would be much appreciated guys.
    Thanks
