@sleve_mcdichael yep! I missed out that it actually is printed out on the board and it booted up when I powered on the wrong input i.e. power in on the USB-port. But there's no USB I/O on the power inlet port. Low-level-mistake, caused me some googling hahaha
Are you controllers connected via USB ? If so, do other USB devices work - it might be an USB connector problem. I assume you tried to configure the (new) USB controller in EmulationStation and this is where it's not working ?
First, xboxdrv should not be installed unless you really know how to use it. It's not a real device driver, but emulates an Xbox compatible controller. The xpad is usually used for X360/Xbox controllers. If that doesn't work, then it means you're encountering the same issue.
Is there any chance that there is a seperate file for controller input detection in ES?
The configuration for EmulationStation's input is in \\retropie\configs\all\emulationstation\es_input.cfg. You can verify there that your input is mapped correctly and there are no button overlaps.
You can also start EmulationStation with the --debug flag and it will log the inputs pressed.
I should have pulled the latest before running the script
Support for Buster (and the Pi4) has been slowly been tested on the development branch, which recently was merged to the main repository. There still might be some quirks, but you should be able to install from binaries (without re-compiling).
@X_Splinter This looks like a power issue - starting a game would increase the power draw and possibly reset/disconnect your wireless chip and the USB ports. Are you sure you're using a proper power source ? Are you using a case ?
Yes, what an idiot I swaped the power supply and didnt even notice, now it's late I'll try tomorrow with official power supply.
I hope thats the issue, it got to be it's only the thing that changed... the same happens when I open retroarch, also the system only shows the pop-up that a controller was disconnected when I reconnect it which is strange
@duggeryskull this solution works for me although the Cdown remains unassigned. Do you leave RIGHT ANALOG DOWN (which is Cdown) -NOT DEFINED-? That's an issue I have not been able to find a solution for so far... Cheers
How did you solve this? I have the same problem with C down unassigned. Any help would be highly appreciated, thank you. :-)
