N64 How to get the joystick and the buttons to work


#1

Hello

I built my picade some days ago, and I loved it. It’s amazing. :)
Now I tried some N64 games with Retropie 4.02 and they work just fine. But only with my Xbox One Controller attached to the usb port.
Whatever I tried, I didn’t get the Picade Joystick and Butons to work.
Did anyone here yet solve this problem, or has some ideas? :)

Hi

My joystick and buttons work in the N64 emulator unfortunately I can’t remember if I needed to configure anything and I am not near the Picade until Friday so can’t check. This is on v3.8.1 so might not be relevant to v4.0.2

Cheers

Hi Paul

I’d be happy if you can check. :) Would be great to play Mario Kart 64 with the Picade joystick. :)

Thank you.

ok, I got it. Wooohooo!
I just needed to install an emulator which uses retroarch. And with this it worked.
Now I only need to find out how I can use the joystick as analogue stick and not as dpad. :)

Hello!

Of course.
To Play the N64-Games with the Picade Stick and buttons I installed Ir_Mupen64plus in the Retropie-Setup and set this as default emulator for the N64 roms.
To use the stick as analogue I edited this config file: /opt/retropie/configs/n64/retroarch.cfg
I copied the input section for player 1 from /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg into the n64-file. Then I switched the entries from the dpad to the analogue and left the dpad entries just with a “”. You just need to be carful to fill in the axis-entries correctly. But there’s a note which explains how to do it. If you want, I can post you my config file later, when I get home.

cheers
