Player 2 on N64 with IPAC2 - joypads



  • Hi,
    I have built an arcade console using IPAC2 with retropie installed on my rpi-3.
    The IPAC2 is configured to a joystick mode and not keyboard.
    I configured only 1 player using EmulationStation and it works perfect with all lr- based emulation (probably because of the autoconfig). In order to configure player 2 I used the retroarch menu in game, and this also works perfectly (for each console).

    Now the issue:
    When I am running n64 game under lr-mupen64plus and configure player 2, it works perfect. but lots of games works better on mupen64plus-gles2rise-highres, so I configured them to use mupen64plus-gles2rise-highres, when I check player 1, it works perfect, without configuring anything, but player 2 is the problem, so I need to configure it manually:
    To configure it, I follow this link to configure my keys https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/Nintendo-64#controls
    Edit:
    Player 1 I didn't touch, because it is working out of the box somehow (probably ES made it work using autoconfig) , but player 2 is the issue, it still doesn't seems to work after edditing themupen64plus.cfg fike , joystick + buttons not responding.

    I ended up trying lots of shots in the dark, seems like player 2 buttons + joystick are completely ignored when running non lr- emulation of n64.

    here is my controllers info (player 1 and 2, I edited player 2) in file /opt/retropie/configs/n64/mupen64plus.cfg
