Last hurdle, please help


#1

Managed to get the Picade to work.! (Yay.!)
Connected my keyboard, added wifi…
Dowloaded and installed the drivers…
The only problem i have now is its not finding
My controller, ive pressed ‘alt on my keyboard to configure but its just configuring my keyboard, not my Picade joystick and buttons.!
Please advise.!!


#2

So you saying when you first booted up you set up a keyboard and then used that to set wifi?


#3

Cheers for the help.!
Yeah, just now., its saying welcome…
no gamepad found… how do I configure / make it
Find my joystick / buttons…!?


#4

Have you installed the Picade software? See; https://github.com/pimoroni/picade-hat


#5

Yeah, thats what i meant when i said id added wifi and installed the drivers…
Are u saying that the joystick and keys should just work after installing the drivers.!?

Absolutely yes (following a reboot that is)-

Can you exit to terminal (F4) and run watch -n 0.1 gpio readall (hopefully the GPIO command is installed) and see if you can see any activity on the GPIO when the joystick is moved or buttons are pressed.

Double-check your connections, and make sure the HAT is pushed firmly down onto the Pi.
