XU4-ORA 1.5.2 BT controller works on Emulation station but not games



  • Hello,

    I'm trying to setup my first ODroid system after using multiple raspberry pi's for years. I got an external compatible BT dongle and setup BT on the SNES Pro controller and it works on emulation station but when I launch a game, the controller doesn't work - when the game is loading, I see a Pro Controller (xxx/xxx) not configured in yellow in the bottom left hand corner. I thought maybe my controller isn't supported yet so I added the PS3 driver and plug the ps3 controller and it also works on emulation station but not in the game. I also see Playstation Controller (xxx/xxx) not configured

    I have no idea what's going on, both don't work either when connected w USB either but the keyboard works

    3.6, 3.8.1, 4.1 - do not write latest): ORA 1.5.2
    Built From: (Stock XU4-ORA-Base-RP-PUB-v1.5.2.img )
    USB Devices connected: Keyboard
    Controller used: Tried 8bitdo SNES30 and PS3



  • @mobebk Please refer to here and check if there is a config file in retroarchs joypad auto dir.



  • Thanks @cyperghost. Somehow there wasn't any controller .cfg files in that folder, I copied the ones from from my raspberry pi there and it worked like a charm. Man, N64 is night and day diff between the pi and the XU4



  • @mobebk said in XU4-ORA 1.5.2 BT controller works on Emulation station but not games:

    Please use the default config for es_input.cfg this will enable automatic config.

    Yes it is. But it is not perfect. I stay to the Raspberry because you can count all developers from other SDB and you've only 1/4th of the dev power of the Raspberry. The XU4 is a powerhouse - indeed but there is much much room for optimization.

    One big benefit of the XU4 platform is, that is nativly supports Ubuntu. So it's a much better desktop system as the Raspberry. But if you only compare RetroPie Raspberry and ORA for XU4 then the Raspberry is the clear winner.

    Nevertheless the ORA-team has done a fantastic job and the support for the OGST case makes a dreams come true. I installed a 250GB harddrive in this case ;) No problem ;)



  • Hi,
    I'm having this exact same issue with ps3 controller. I went over to other thread to try and figure out own my on, but I'm very new to this and it is very hard to understand how to add the input.cfg.
    I don't know where to even access that from. can you please help me and give some step by step guide?
    You said you copy and paste a file? Can you please show me how to do that?
