Using Controlblock and USB controller interchangeably



  • I’m only at the planning stages of my cabinet but I already ordered the control block accesory from petrockblog to usewith rPi3B+. I was thinking I would hook up the arcade stick and buttons through the control block and also use a gamepad controller via usb. In addition I imagined that the arcade stick and usb pad would be usable interchangeably as player one depending on what would feel better for each game. Am I way off here, is this even possible? Is there something I should consider to make this easier already now in the planning stage? Thnx.



  • @m2306 Yes, it's possible to use different gamepads as P1, depending on the system you play or choose at runtime. You can use Meleu's joystick selection tool to do that.
