Is there a simple way to make DragonRise controllers work with Daphne??
@grant2258 Ok Sounds Good. Will I just reconfigure it in emulation station again once rotated to reset the buttons for all other emulators?
@ChristianG yes once rotated do that if you have two joysticks make sure they are rotated the same way and all the buttons are plugged into the same places both sides.
@ChristianG Here is my setup
@grant2258 Very sweet setup. I like the wide body. I decided to build a pacman with 2 sticks which is tight but doable. You build the body yourself?
note this picture here if you need to rotate and if the mount is sitting wrong take these 4 screws out twist the joystick screw and put it on.
Yes i did build it myself just got some mdf and cut it out. Yes I did build this myself just got some mdf and cut it out no plans just drew it and cut it
@grant2258 Hey man I wanted to thank you for taking time to respond to my question. I have my joystick rotated, Daphne working and I couldn't be happier. I was stuck on threads for days I couldn't understand.
Thanks again. Just awesome!
no problems at all my good man every time i see this daphne issue come up i kinda just help the person the emulator clearly just needs these fixes. The good thng now as well if you plug your arcade contoller in your windows machine it will work properly as well.
First of all I would like to thanks for this topic that partially solved my problem.
Till this afternoon I couldn't use my joystick in two directions, than I've compiled like grant2258 has suggested and now i've all 4 directions.
The issue is that now directions aren't coordinate in all daphne games (and only with daphne emulator, 'cause are correct with all other emulators).
For example in Dragon's Lair if I move the joystick:
- up, Dirk moves left;
- down, Dirk moves up;
- right, Dirk moves down;
- left, Dirk moves right.
I've controlled with jstest and I think that daphinput.ini file's is correctly configured.
I've a raspberry pi 3b+, dragonrise usb encoders with driver version 2.1.0, retropie v. 4.4, kernel v.4.9.80-v7+.
Which could be the solution?
To explain better I put the following link to: 1) my daphinput's file, 2) pictures of my joystick, 3) pictures of my cabinet and of jstest's results:
Great problem is that I've difficulties to open my cabinet to rotate joystick, do you think is it possible to solve through software?
p.s. Finally I've solved the issue and I decide to pubblish my solution hoping to help someone with the same situazione. 'cause I can't rotate joystick I changed the position of the cables connected to the the pin of dragonrise's encoder.
The only handicap is the necessity to configurate another time the joysticks in emulationstation, but in five minutes it's done.
