Picade with emulationstation not working

Hi, I have a Picade board connected to a PI3 running Emulationstation. I have wired up the controller and buttons to the Picade. I cannot get the Emulationstation software to work with the Picade. Do I need to do something to enable it?

Apologies if this is a dumb question. I am new to PI and Picade.

Thanks, DBL.

Picade PCB or Picade HAT?

Hi there,
Did you manage to solve the issue ?
I just. Bought my Picade, built it and I have the same problem : Joystick and buttons work properly in Retropie menu but don’t work in all emulators, so I can’t play with anything.
I have asked for support in the forum, but no one answered yet.

Mine is Picade PCB that came with the Picade diy box set.
