Really looking forward to being able to connect multiple controllers in Reicast.
I don’t have advanced knowledge of Github, but if you clone the repository, make your suggested changes then submit a pull request with a comment explaining what you fixed, that should be all there is to it!
There is a style guide on Github for the project:

Thanks for posting your solution hyell.
I have made a note over on the GitHub issue relating to Reicast controllers:
Is this a fix you would be able to add to RetroPie or Reicast, if it is regularly updated?vretroParticipant03/29/2016 at 01:06Post count: 32

alfalfa, setting up player one is quite seamless on Retro Pie now with the EmulationStation controller integration.
I don’t know if it was ever possible to use more than one controller with earlier versions of Reicast before EmulationStation integration.
Its hard to tell if this is a RetroPie bug or Reicast.vretroParticipant03/26/2016 at 23:48Post count: 32
Thanks dgtliqd, it seems that EmulationStation under RetroPie does actually create the controller mapping for Reicast, but in my case and for others in this thread it seems to map only one working controller.
I will use your pointers to try and see if I cant get the id’s I need to make two controllers work.vretroParticipant03/26/2016 at 02:14Post count: 32
Is it possible that the secret to our issues originate with the device id’s being used within emu.cfg
Below is how my emu.cfg looks:
evdev_device_id_1 = 0
evdev_device_id_2 = 1
evdev_device_id_3 = -1
evdev_device_id_4 = -1
evdev_mapping_1 = /opt/retropie/configs/dreamcast/mappings/controller_USB,2-axis8-buttongamepad.cfg
evdev_mapping_2 = /opt/retropie/configs/dreamcast/mappings/controller_USB,2-axis8-buttongamepad.cfg
joystick_device_id = -1
When I did a fresh install, my controllers were not added to the mappings folder when I first launched Reicast and the default evade_device id’s were different. It seems that -1 is used to indicate “missing” controllers. I had two attached.
I haven’t had success swapping these numbers around, yet.
Should there be a second (third or fourth) joystick_device_id for each controller too?
Does Reicast controllers get configured via EmulationStation like some other systems?vretroParticipant03/25/2016 at 22:23Post count: 32vretroParticipant03/12/2016 at 03:11Post count: 32
Wifi connectivity seems to be completely unreliable on Pi3.
Errors consist of:
Host is down
Could not resolve hostname, codename nor servname provided, or not known
It doesn’t seem to make a difference if I connect with a host name or ip address, after a few minutes the Pi seems to vanish from the local network.vretroParticipant03/11/2016 at 14:23Post count: 32
The installation originated from a Pi2 Retropie image, which had been upgraded to the latest Raspian and RetroPie binaries before swapping over to a Pi3, then upgraded to the latest Raspian and RetroPie binaries again when booted from the Pi3.vretroParticipant03/10/2016 at 20:36Post count: 32
I was using the latest RetroPie download for Pi2 and Pi3.
Starting with the latest Raspian and manually installing RetroPie script seems to have solved my issues with connectivity reliability at this time.
The previous RetroPie installation was originally used on a Pi2 but had been updated to the latest system and the most recent binary install of RetroPie.vretroParticipant02/22/2016 at 21:31Post count: 32vretroParticipant02/21/2016 at 23:59Post count: 32vretroParticipant02/21/2016 at 23:32Post count: 32vretroParticipant02/16/2016 at 00:10Post count: 32vretroParticipant09/17/2015 at 21:49Post count: 32
Wow, this sounds brilliant!
The clever bod was you then? ha!
To have this piece of wizardry integrated into RetroPie would be fantastic. By the sounds of it, thats something you are working away at, thank you!
[quote=106262]A clever bod on the Pi forums came up with this solution for UAE4ARM:

[quote=106133]How good is Amiga emulation on a Pi2?[/quote]
I can report that Amiga emulation is excellent on Raspberry Pi using RetroPie, my experience is with a RPI B+ and I have not had any speed issues.
There are a few videos on YouTube featuring Amiga Emulation on Pi2 which are worth looking at:

Thats promising that uae4arm could support loading games from EmulationStation at some point. Does the code base have similarities to the UAE which did integrate with EmulationStation on the earlier RetroPie?
I have never tried whdload, so I will have to research that. My goal is to be able to quickly fire up any Amiga game via joypad/stick with box art, just like it is possible with consoles in EmulationStation with RetroPie, which really eliminates so much friction. The added ability to exit back to EmulationStation using Start + Select would make a big difference too.
Thanks for the pointers and for the hope of future developments
[quote=106103]not support with the default emu. the uae4arm emulator may support it (would need to check docs of this emulator). What you could do it set it to boot to a HD with whdload installed games – which will then run quicker than running games off floppy.[/quote]vretroParticipant07/20/2015 at 23:13Post count: 32vretroParticipant07/20/2015 at 23:07Post count: 32
I am having the same issue, but unable to resolve using the various options to configure the controller.
Within any RetroArch powered emulator, my controllers can only move up and down now.
Tried using Emulation Station to set the controller buttons again, also used the options within the RetroPie menu for RetroArch joypad and Retro Arch Keyboard/Joypad.
I seen a log flash up when trying one of those methods which read “module ‘retroarchjoyconfig’ found for platform rpi1” – which sounds good, however there was no interface to define buttons at that time.vretroParticipant07/08/2015 at 03:16Post count: 32
Thank you Buzz.
I can confirm I was able to install Libretro Fuse by enabling Swap first with the following commands:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/root/swap bs=1M count=512
chmod 600 /root/swap
It seems like a really good emulator and I have set it as default as it runs perfectly and supports joypads and has a handy overlay for key presses (found by pressing Select)vretroParticipant06/29/2015 at 22:45Post count: 32
I am having the same issue with PCSX-ReARMed on Beta 4 – the stand alone PSX emulator, where I am unable to make my configuration permanent.
After configuring the controllers, I can use them within the current game, but after quitting and returning, they need to be configured again.
Can anyone shed any light on this issue for people experiencing this issue?
PCSX-ReARMed seems to run faster than the libretro version on Pi B+ – otherwise I would use it instead.vretroParticipant06/27/2015 at 02:39Post count: 32
Thanks Buzz. I lowered the GPU allocation to 16MB and attempted the build again, but it didn’t work.
A while back I disabled and uninstalled the swap feature from my RetroPie build (to reduce chance of corruption due to power loss) so I will have to look about reinstalling that, or making new temporary swap file and attempt the build again.
Did you have any success trying on your 256MB Pi?vretroParticipant06/25/2015 at 00:39Post count: 32vretroParticipant02/28/2015 at 19:54Post count: 32
Hello sselph, nice work!
Have you considered adding Amiga to your compatible systems?
There are a few resources online which catalogue Commodore Amiga box art and screen shots.
I would guess you’d have to use a similar technique to how you handle MAME name lookup because of the nature of Amiga adf files.
Useful resources to help, if you consider this:
http://www.exotica.org.uk/wiki/Amiga_Game_Box_Scans (wiki style, box art)
http://hol.abime.net/hol_search.php (large collection of 6616 entries, screenshots, box art)
http://www.lemonamiga.com (3518 entries, screen shots, title screens, some box art)

Thank you for your efforts
