[Solved] Problem with arcade fightstick on Stretch



  • Good morning to all,

    Before 6 months or so I bought an arcade fightstick. I bought that so my daughters and my nephew can easier play the games they want.

    https://www.gearbest.com/game-controllers/pp_672653.html?vip=4442876&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIwNLKiKzX2gIVLrvtCh2y0A0ZEAAYASAAEgI6u_D_BwE

    On Jessie (4.3) the fightstick worked out of the box without any problem.
    After updating to Stretch raspberry don't recognized the fightstick at all.

    So far I've tried the following:

    Connect only the fightstick : Not working.
    Connect it to windows 10 desktop : Works fine.
    Connect it to Linux Mint Notebook : Works fine.
    Re-flash v4.3 : Works fine.
    Flash Raspbian Jessie : Works fine.
    Flash Raspbian Stretch : Not working.

    The fightstick have a 4 number light indicator and it's easy to tell if is connected.
    I'm waiting a friend of mine to bring me a usb powered hub (I lost the power supply of my hub) to check if this solve my problem
    Any thoughts ?

    I see that the joystick has a 'Mode' setting, probably to switch between PC/PS3/XBOX hosts. One change in Raspbian Stretch is the Sony PS drivers, maybe try to switch the joystick to PC mode and see if they get detected by the Pi



  • Thanks Mitu. I've tried already that. No dice.

    @wilenek What's the message appearing in dmesg when you plug in the controller ?



  • @mitu i'm at work right now. I'll post the dmesg when I got home. I'm new to Linux so it might take some time.



  • @mitu Hello Mitu

    Here is the content of dmesg

    https://pastebin.com/ifHnVsYT

    And the contents of dmesg | grep usb if that helps

    @wilenek I see that the device(s) are detected as 1 gamepad (FightStick) and 2 mini-keyboard input devices. So Emulationstation does not recognise them so you could configure them ?



  • @mitu Riitek i8+ keyboard works fine and I've configured it without problems.
    Emulationstation don't detect the fightstick in input configuration.

    With a fresh install of 4.3 on first boot emulationstation detects the controllers & the keyboard and then I press any button to configure then.

    @wilenek Upon looking in the log, it appears the device is reset after connecting

    How many devices are connected when the log was captured ?



  • @mitu The fight stick and the keyboard.



  • Tried to connect the fightstick to a powered usb hub with a 5V - 2.5A but didn't recognize it.
    Any other thoughts?

    How can I downgrade retroarch version to 1.7.0 to rule out retroarch problem ?



  • Good news,

    After i update my system yesterday the fight-stick suddenly was recognized by pi and i was able to configure it.

    Problem solved.
