    Absolutely @cluf20! It’s maybe tailored toward my specific setup, but maybe you can derive something from it if you can’t use it as is.

    I appreciate the reply and help with the link. I’ll read it over and see what I can learn.

    Forgive me if I was rude. Frustration has been building for the 3+ months that I’ve been scouring forums and wiki’s. I’m not even sure where to post questions most of the time. Perhaps this isn’t a RetroPie issue and perhaps my expectation of documentation is unrealistic.

    Moreover I should at least have started expressing my gratitude for RetroPie existing in the first place.

    Thanks again, @herbfargus

    Ok, so I spoke to soon. This stated solution about doesn’t seem to work, at least not all the time. Right now I’m at about a 50% success rate for when the FBTFT module loads or not.

    This retropie stuff is insanely flaky. Settings change all the time with hardly any, if any, documentation. And I can hear a mouse fart in this forum..

    I managed to figure it out I guess. Adding ‘sudo’ in front of the fbcp command in /etc/rc.local seemed to fix it.

    I managed to solve my problem. The issue seemed to come from the example sketch included with Teensyduino found under File > Examples > Teensy > USB_Joystick > Complete. I’m not an experienced arduino-er, but with that sketch the buttons seem to be sourced and updated using a “Joystick.send_now” command. When I modified the sketch to source and update based on the “bounce” method, the buttons worked as expected. The bounce method is used in another example sketch: File > Examples > Teensy > USB_Joystick > Buttons. Modifying that approach according to my setup was fairly simple to get it working.

    In the end, this really had nothing to do with RetroPie.
