Prototype worked great, final product not working
I made a prototype a month ago with a raspberry 2, a controlblock and joysticks, and it worked fine.
Now I'm making the final product, and "No gamepads detected" displays on the screen... The only change I made from the initial setup is the wiring thickness, could it be the problem? The wires I used are way thicker.
Any help is appreciated, thanks!
Come on guys, any idea?

@calypso You really need to post more information. I made a prototype first using an IPac2, switches, pi etc. etc. It worked. Then I built the thing and although it worked, there were problems. Things this board probably need to know more about:
- Power Supply?
- Control Block wiring diagram?
- Control Block Software install and verification of operation via SSH?
- Checking that the common ground loops are present and are actually common
- RetroPie version?
- Copies of Config files used?
People who write FAQ sheets get really annoyed when someone posts I have built something and it doesn't work, can you tell me why? It's an impossible question. Now I know you said your setup worked but what is the setup? I doubt wire thickeness is an issue but wire length could be. I had power issues with USB cables that were too long.
@rbaker Well, it works now... I just reinstalled everything from scratch. I'm doing an instructable and will share it here in a few hours.
