Xm10 not configuring correctly

  • Re: XM10 retropie 4.4 raspberry 3b+


    I have recently built a bartop arcade and put a xinmo xm10 in, however after painstakingly checking the wiring and checking , i cannot even get player 1 controls to register in retropie? I have checked the wiring as per the diagram and it is fine, some commands work like up, down, left, A and B, the rest don't I'm thinking it is the xm10 that is faulty, can anyone shed any light on this for me as I'm tearing my hair out. The layout i am using for the wiring is below, Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Kind regards

    You can check using the jstest utility if the buttons are registering correctly in Linux, outside or RetroPie. Attach a keyboard and exit Emulationstation (F4), then run from the command line:

    jstest /dev/input/js0

    It will show you the gamepad buttons/joysticks and you can press them one by one to see if the input values change on the screen. You can exit the test by pressing Ctrl + C.

    If there is no reaction when pressing a button, either the wiring is faulty or the controller.
    You can also try connecting the encoder to a PC and test it there also.
