Retroplayer PSX XBox 360 Wireless Controller not working

Hi!

I hope I did not fail to find the solution here. Searching did not give a result.

I now have a clean installation of CoreELEC. When I run a SNES Game via Libreto, the controller works as is the case within Kodi. However, when starting pcsxARMed, the controller does not work at all. (I reinsatlled again and again, the problem is just there unchanged) I can try remapping the controller in the options menu of the emulator: the inputs are accepted but afterwards, inside the emulation, nothing changes.

Maybe you can hint me on where to look for a solution to this problem. I would not even know how to find the relevant log files.

I use an old wireless XBOX 360 Controller and the problem occurs with or without the respective BIOS files.

I would be glad for every suggestion on what to do, where to look for further help or info on which log files to inspect for a hint on the problem.

Thank you very much! :slight_smile:

I did find the relevant entries in kodi.log (I had to trim the file)

If I am correct, the problem is revealed here:

Does anyone have a suggestion on how I can fix this. Weirdly enough, the problem does not seem to occur often as I have a hart time finding more information on this. I am wondering since I assumed that the controller input runs out of the box. (No offense guys, your work is appreciated here!!!)

Thanx & best regards!

There is a known problem with pcsxARMed and controllers. There will be a suitcase for kodi 20. But fortunately, there is a solution - installing an older version of the add-on:
https://addons.coreelec.org/9.2/Amlogic/arm/game.libretro.pcsx-rearmed/game.libretro.pcsx-rearmed-22.0.0.9.2.zip
Here is the error description and solution:

Thank you very much. Using the older addon version did indeed work. :slight_smile:
