Recalbox 7.0

Controller works in emulationstation but not in games



  • I have an xbox 360 wireless controller that works fine in ES, but doesn't work with any emulators.  Tried looking for a way to access retroarch (I'm assuming that's what is being used for most of the emulation), but if it exists, I haven't found it yet.



  • To enter RetroARCH Menu, hit "hotkey" + "B" or "A". But your controller should be OK if you can use it on ES... Maybe you should try to remap all buttons manually in ES controllers menu.



  • I can't access retroarch menu with “hotkey” + “B” or “A”.   Guess I'll have to figure it out manually. thanks for response.

    Hello in recalbox.conf : https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/recalbox.conf-(EN) disabled ps controller enable only xboxdrv controller

    # -------------- D1 - PS3 Controllers ------------ #
    ##Enable PS3 controllers support
    controllers.ps3.enabled=0
    ## Choose an driver beetween official, shanwan and gasia if you have dualshock clones (official,shanwan,gasia)
    controllers.ps3.driver=official
    
    # ------------ D2 - XBOX Controllers ------------ #
    ## Xbox controllers are already supported, but xboxdrv can solve some compatibility issues 
    ## Enable xboxdrv driver, disable this if you enabled ps3 controllers (0,1)
    controllers.xboxdrv.enabled=1
    ## Set the amount of controllers to use with xboxdrv (0..4)
    controllers.xboxdrv.nbcontrols=2
    

    reboot rpi , configure gamepad into emulationstation try again in game



  • And for information by default, hotkey is mapped on central xbox button (power on switch).



  • Thanks guys...editing recalbox.conf did the trick.   I've messed around with other Raspberry Pi OSs, but I'm a noob to recalbox.  Even with editing the .conf, it is still the easiest to setup so far.
