Reicast zero inputs working inside of emulator

Hey all I've been trying to set up reicast on my retropie for a few days. I finally got the bios set up, and games are running. I'm using an arcade set up with joystick and buttons.
But when I get into a game, zero inputs work. Pressing every button results in nothing on screen. I went to retropie setup, and configured reicast controls from there, I put in start, hotkey to exit, all the buttons all the joystick.
But once I start reicast, I can't perform any actions whatsoever. Can't even exit emulator. Can't do anything on my USB keyboard either. Pressing every key does nothing. I have to flip the power off and on to get back into retropie.
I've been googling for a couple days now, read through the dreamcast wiki multiple times, and have tried many things. Can anyone guide me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance guys
EDIT: I am on Retropie 4.4, using an arcade joystick, buttons and usb encoder from amazon
Please add more info about your system, as detailed in https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first. What controller are you using/what RetroPie version, etc.

@mitu Sorry about that. I updated my post!
Can you check if your gamepad configuration is added to the mapping folder in
/opt/retropie/configs/dreamcast/mappings? It should be a
.cfgfile with your gamepad name.

@mitu there's a "generic controller" mapping cfg...That's the only one that seems like it would be related to my custom arcade joystick
"generic controller" mapping cfg
That's probably your gamepad which was configured. Can you post the contents of the file here, between code tags (just add
```before and after the text on separate lines) ?

@Dyelon if you have issues with controls on standalone reicast, but have a working retroarch setup, i would recommend giving a try to the flycast libretro core, especially in an arcade setup where you might be interested by naomi & atomiswave support.
NB : lr-flycast is a bit more demanding than reicast standalone, but nothing that can't be overcomed by upgrading or overclocking your device (which is a rpi ?).

@Dyelon hey pal, did you ever get it fixed? Having exact same issue as yourself. Bought USB encoders from amazon same thing.
