Just got my first Picade (2018, 8”), and it’s been a blast to build, and the kit is very well designed and engineered.
While everything else is working well, when I go to set up the controls, the buttons work but the joystick does not. What’s strange is that 2 of the diagonal clicks register, but none of the straight (up/down/l/r) switches register in emulationstation.
- triple checked that the wiring is correct:
— made sure that the easy connector is fully in
— made sure the ground is on the correct pin end on the Hat
- re-installed the picadehat drivers
- tried running a diagnostic tool mentioned somewhere in another post, but there were several 0s and 1s turning off/on, and the buttons didn’t seem to have any bearing in the tool.
- examined the ribbon cable for kinks or cuts, looks ok
Again, buttons work. Is it possible that I just have a bad Joystick or joystick ribbon cable? Any other ideas?
