usb controller converter for ps1 not working in ES

  • I'm essentially having this same problem:

    Using RetroPie 4.xx with a B+

    We're running a PS1 controller through a converter to a USB plug.

    When I run the controller config from the menu it reads as usb joystick2 and I can assign all the correct buttons and they work while i'm looking though the emulators and games. However once I start a game, the controller doesn't work at all.

    I tried assigning the numbers the controller config said it was assigning to the retroarch config file for joypads, but that just messed up the mapping.

    When a ROM starts, it says it recognizes joypad 0 and joypad 1 but the controller doesn't work. I've tried switching the default joypad from 0-2 and that didn't work either.

    Any clues? Thanks!

  • @plwiatt The Pi detects player 1 as joystick 0 and player 2 as joystick 1. Have you tried just plugging into the other port of the adapter? From what you're saying, it looks like you've got the ports mixed up and are plugged into the player 2 port.
