@miXza-81 The QC on this kinds stuff is non existent. Back in the day when stuff was built better, my dad would get stuff from free from friends and sometimes pawn shops and thrift stores that was broken. He taught me how to open it up and look for bad components and traces. Used to be that you could solder in a small wire to bridge these kind of bad traces.
As a side note, that soldering on that thing makes me cringe. It looks like it was hand-soldered by 10yr old me.
This is why I ended up using my old OEM Playstation 1/2 controllers for Retropie. Even then, the cheap dual PSX adapter had bad soldering on the connectors so I had to re-do that!
Interesting enough. I deleted both configs /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg & /opt/retropie/configs/nes/retroarch.cfg rebooted and reconfigured USB again and went straight to NES game and its working now. It was a last ditch effort and I noticed both had backup configs as well.
Cool, but I'd like to stick with a retro controller @StormJH1 Quick question, are the n64 remotes prices going up? The n64 is the next step for me, (as it says in my signature) and I don't want the prices to go up too much.
