Two Dragonrise Inc. controller boards in Emulation Station
Everytime I try to config them something went wrong. For ex. The left Joystick is inverted or buttons get not recognized. Has someone these boards and got them working on emulation station
Please do not post a support request without first reading and following the advice in https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first
Make sure you wire both joysticks identically.
OK will do that first thing when I come back. The controllers are identical connected. So far I can say,
Where can I see which version I run?
I have the Regalad V3 64GB Image installed.
So far I sorted out that when I have both boards plugged in everything wents down (nothing works anymore correctly) With just one of the boards connected everything works fine.
Is thate an option to have the boards seperated by anything or is that problem to stay because the boards are each the same?
@estrichleger you didn't read https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first - 3rd party images are not supported sorry.
But it seems that it is a hardware error so that there must be an option to let it run two boards.
Now I'm on EMulation Station 263rp from the original Retropie Image off the website.
I'm using a Pie 3 and twi Dragonrise Inc controller boards.
When I have one board plugged in everything works fine for that controller. When there are two of them inserted and "correctly" configured buttons. the first controller gets inverted axis the buttons are not on their stratus where there were before I plugged in the second controller board.
Is that a known problem and can this be solved anyhow?
RetroPie Version 4.3.8 installed still the controller won't do it like they should.
this is something that I have had with retropie, with two snes usb pads. both work individually, but when both are connected simultaneously they go wrong.
My advice is to try the joystick configurator tool, that helped me.
Is there a help file for this tool?
if you search the forum for it there will be a guide to instalation, the rest is either covered in the same thread or self explanitory
For what should I search here?
@meleu he is the author, im sure he can point you to the right thread.
How can I contact him? In the profile there is no button/option for that.
hes like batman, he always shows up when you need him, having tagged him he will probably read this.

@rooli you have to wire you joysticks up identically and the rotation of the joysticks should be the same. There is one config file for both joysticks. Plug them into windows and do a joystick test and you will see they arent setup the same thats your problem

@grant2258 Thank you for your answer. What means wire my joystick up identically? (I don't know how to do that and what that does)
How I did it:
I did set up the key binding in ES. If I connect only one panel, then it works fine.
If I connect the second panel and restart and do the bindings for the second one, then it starts to do the funny things.
Afterwards I set up the key bindings in Retroarch and it works now.
The problem is the buttons are not the ones it supposed to. A = Y for example.
And in the ES frontend the 1st. controller's axis is revert. (it does it straight away when I connect and do the key bindings for the second panel)

Are all wires connected the same way on both joystick / Dragonrise board combinations? It's easy to make errors in the wiring.
Could you take photos of both joysticks' wiring and post them here?
