Two player control issues, player two not working

  • Guys.. I’ve scoured all docs and I’m struggling to find the info I need

    I’ve got a raspberry pi 3 model B, 3amp power pack and running the controlblock 2.1. My retropie is the latest version

    Everything was going great, controlblock is working, power switch turns the system on and off...

    Problem is, I install SNES, NeS and Mastersystem emulators, add a few roms to each

    I enter emulation station and it tells me it finds two controllers.

    It lets me configure the buttons and off I go.. I select a room and hit go.. - the game loads and no controls work

    I can get some Roms to work with one player but the second player controls are not recognised at all. It’s driving me insane

    Any info much appreciated

  • Sounds like you've got everything set up fine in EmulationStation, but not in retroArch.

    Make sure you're using "lr-" versions of an emulator, then try going into the retroArch menu (Select+X). You should be able to configure your buttons in there.
