ControlBlock Installed - But Doesn't shut down PI
final update on my end :
Tested by flashing 4.5.1 retropie to SD card ->Booted PIE -> Installed driver from retro pie setup -> driver -> control block.
It installed and I enabled the driver and rebooted. After system came up - Led was still pulsing - I went to configure the joystick "4 game pads detected" so the Controlblock player 1 + 2 were detected ( my ps4 controller and USB keyboard were plugged in) But Icould not configure the buttons. (This is probably because i did not disconnect the wires from the controlblock prior to installing the driver)
Hope we find a solution!
Ok, I can reproduce the issue. arcade controls via ControlBlock are working, but the power button does not work as expected. Something must have slipped through with the latest driver update. I will fix that today and give you an update here.
Sorry for that!
Thank you! This is FANTASTIC NEWS! I thought I was going crazy.
I'm happy we were able to reproduce the issue so that if anyone else is affected they can find the solution in this thread and save themselves the time troubleshooting!
Thank you for your help, I look forward to the fix.
I tracked down the cause to the Raspberry Pi driver side - and not the ControlBlock firmware. That is for sure and good news. I will now work on a fix for the driver. Plan to release it sometime this evening.
By any chance do you know if the driver was broken for all versions of Retropie? Do you think the new driver will fix it for future and past releases as well?
Looking forward to the update.
I have just released the updated driver at Github.
The driver is the same for all RetroPie versions.
it would be great if you could give feedback here if that solves the issues on your side.
@petrockblog thanks Petrock.
I will test this within the hour and report back.
@petrockblog Good News! It's working now. The LED went solid right after the quick install method. Power Switch confirmed working!
Glad to hear that!
