How are you connecting the devices - do you have an USB hub (and which type) ? Can you check the system log with dmesg to see if any errors appear there when the controller becomes unresponsive ? What power source (and no, a phone charger is not a proper power source) are you using ?
I'm not sure if you are the best person to ask this question to, but since you started this thread I'm going to give it a try.
I have been using the Cyclone: enable option and setting frameskip: 1 on FB Neo on Retropie (PiZero), and I surely see a substantial improvement in performance.
As I wrote in my previous message from last year, when I try to load/save a game, emulationstation crashes and it goes back to the game list.
Yesterday I saw that there is a new version of Retropie (Version 4.5.1) available, and in the change-log it's mentioned that it now supports Cyclone for improved performance.
I tried it from a fresh install, but sadly I get the same issues.
Do you have any suggestions that could help me in debugging and hopefully fixing the issue?
@arrowhead The driver is available to be installed from the RetroPie setup menu - in the Manage Packages / Manage driver packages section, so you don't need to install it manually. In fact, this is explained in the page I quoted, in the Installation section.
@Floob I'm now running retropie 4.2 on pi zero
