    Hi all! New here! Im from Uruguay, sorry for my English.

    Well, I can configure 1 player controler, but when I configure player 2 I start to have problems.

    Everything works fine for player 2, but player 1: right becomes left, up becomes down and buttons mess up, start for example is B.

    What should I do? thanks for your help!

    That guide doesn't contain any 'fix', it just reinstalls retroarch. We don't support 3rd party images - if you have a problem, please install the image and see if you get the problem again.
    You didn't mention what kind of controller are you using - is it a 2P arcade controller ?

  • Oh sorry! I didn´t use that image, just posted like an example of what I did, sorry.

    Yes it is a 2P arcade controller, both are dragonrise generic usb joystick. One works fine, but when I set the 2nd, everything goes crazy.

    gonna delete the vid, sorry for posting it, was just an example.

    @Augustus1313 You seem to have wired the controls differently. If both have the same name, the same configuration applies to both - so configuring one of them should work for both. However, if one of them is wired differently, then its configuration will break the other controller. Make sure you wire them identically, so each corresponding button/pad produces the same result then actioned, then configure one of them and verify that the configuration works for the other.

  • thank you @mitu , yes your post describes perfectly my problem! As I'm new, I wired them randomly, thanks for your advice!!! Will tell tonight if everything is fine, thanks for your help!! Nice community.

  • problem looks solved!! thank!!!
