you know what i did. i just did a fresh install - retropie 4.6 image. thanks for all the info and help, but a fresh install isnt that hard, it takes a couple of hours and then everything is working fine. also, the time and effort needed to upgrade the whole lot with all side complications possible - and having to resolve them -, that would perhaps take longer than just simply imaging the whole sd card to a disk image (.img) then flash it with retropie 4.6 and then mount the .img and return the whole lot to its folders.
Ok, half a day later, I realize one (perhaps small) problem concerning the Pi4 project. As I am going to build two Arcade Machines together with a friend of mine, I had to setup RetroPie twice. One on a Pi3b+ and one on my Pi4. Testing with the old "Hyper Sports" on mame2003, I realize a perfect behavior on the 3b+ but a small delay on the Pi4. So pushing the button and taking effect differences a little bit (made me miss the skeets on skeet-shooting ;-) ). Do you have any idea why this is and - much more important for me - how to solve this problem?
@demonscythe hey, i have 2 m30 controllers and work great with raspberry pi.
how are you setting up your controls in emulationstation, and which games are you playing. I had this issue
Ok by default sega genesis will be funny like X will be A and A will be B and B will be C, but lets start with emulation station, i mapped my keys with b is a and a is b.
When mapping set B on controller as A and switch them X is y and Y is X
Z is L shoulder and C is R shoulder
L trigger is top L and R is top right.
Also make sure you are pairing with Switch mode.
Start+Y then press pair and reboot your raspberry pi.
Hope this helps

After finished there are some errors in libraries that made crash emulationstation but they are easy to solve. Once it runs very well including with overclocking. With this fan “Noctua Premium Fan, Brown, NF-A4X10-FLX 5V” I could overclock and no problems.
I'll be getting the 2GB version. I just don't see the point in getting the 4GB version unless you're going to run desktop type workloads or know, specifically, that your workload is memory intensive.
More RAM is also useful for speeding up repeated hdd/ssd/sd access, since Linux uses unused RAM for buffering the file system. You can see this via the command free -h ("h" means "human readable" for more human-friendly numbers). Example from my Laptop:
total used free shared buff/cache available
Mem: 7,7G 2,2G 2,5G 405M 2,9G 4,8G
Although the "free" memory seems to be only 2.5 GB, temporary buffers take 2.9 GB. The real amount of free RAM is 4.8 GB, since the system clears the buffered data as soon as the memory is needed elsewhere. (Don't ask me why the numbers don't seem to add up perfectly, I don't know the actual math behind it.)
If you have another controller, then this might not be the same problem. If this is the case, then I suggest you start a new thread, with detailed descriptions of your hardware, software versions, log file entries etc.
I'm was having trouble with my ps3 controllers and discovered that removing my wifi connection eliminated it. I wanted to install this switch to make this process even easier. However, after installing it it says "Your wifi adapter seems to be blocked or is not available", even though I'm currently connected to wifi and am able to access my retropie over the network. I expected to see the block option, but it shows enable instead. Selecting enable says "sudo: rfkill: command not found" and spits me back to the retropie menu. Wondering if there's something I'm missing...
