Hi, I’ve put together a Picade kit and it all it all seems to be running ok. I’ve been trying out MAME with an xbox controller just to test it and it worked fine. However I’ve now connected up the Picade PCB and I can’t get the joystick and buttons configured properly. To begin with, only the joystick and one of the side buttons seems to be automatically recognised. So I’ve plugged in a keyboard to open up the Retropie menu and entered the configuration setup. If I hold down one of the buttons it detects the joystick and buttons and I’m able to go through and assign them as appropriate. When I exit this setup menu I’m able to navigate through the emulators and games. However, when I run a game, my buttons are no longer being detected, it’s gone back to the original joystick and one side button that had been automatically detected before. I’ve tried rebooting and going through the configuration process but the configuration keeps resetting each time I start a game. I also tried rebooting without starting a game but again, once rebooted only the joystick and one side button were working. I’d be grateful if someone could suggest what I might be doing wrong?
I’m very inexperienced with Raspberry Pi and Retropie and I’ve been trying to find instructions online on how to set up these with the Picade. I can only find instructions for building the Picade itself but nothing similair for setting up the software to work with the Picade. If you’re able to point me in the right direction there as well I’d be very grateful. Thanks.
