Dreamcast Controller Mapping Support

  • Hi All, I just installed Retropie on a Pi 3. I got pretty much everything working except I can't get my controllers to run. The VMU screen comes up and then I can't move. I have uninstalled and reinstalled already once. I updated the mappings and the controllers and then scripts to ensure the emu and controllers mappings where all linked together correctly as per the wiki guide. I am using the 8bitnes30 controllers. I'm just at a loss. Not sure what other steps to take. Thanks.

  • I'd like to help, but first let's start with the info in then we can go from there.

    I think that is all the information I have. I tested in evdev and verified the control and mapping. Not sure of next steps. Thanks again for the help!
