Re: Multi-console gamepad driver for GPIO

EDIT: I seem to have fixed it by installing the raspberrypi-kernel-headers package. My headers must have gotten corrupted somehow. Something seems to have broken with the latest kernel. I'm running 4.4.11-v7+. The headers seem to have downloaded and installed just fine, but I'm getting the following...

Ok, hopefully it works straight out of the box.
Yes, it seems to be working. No problems. :D

Re: Multi-console gamepad driver for GPIO

I'm not sure how helpful the log is, because nothing seemed to get written to it immediately after it froze up. But, I just booted it up and played around with the the controllers in emulation station until it froze, and here are the complete log entries from kern.log from the time it booted up unt...

Re: Multi-console gamepad driver for GPIO

Hi marqs, I'm back. :P So, version 1.2 seems to have fixed all of the previous issues with the PSX controllers, but it has introduced a new one. In my previous post, I had said that the Raspberry Pi had frozen up a few times when I was trying to configure the controllers, but then it started working...

Re: Multi-console gamepad driver for GPIO

Version 1.2 is now available with both PSX pad fixes and NES fourscore support. If there's no issues this time, I will soon update RetroPie-script to use that version. OK. I updated to 1.2, and it now appears to be working! :D Thanks! I did have issues when I first installed it (still couldn't conf...

Re: Multi-console gamepad driver for GPIO

I think you should at least wire grounds (PSX & RPi) together if you haven't already done so. Besides that, I don't have any ideas what could cause your issues. OK, now I'm getting somewhere. I ran a jumper cable between the grounds and the random button presses is now gone. I figured ground was gr...

Re: Multi-console gamepad driver for GPIO

The solution is to use gpio pins P1-03 or P1-05 for the data line (1.8kohm onboard pull-up). If more than 2 controllers needs to be plugged or if those pins are used for something else, an external pull-up resistor (anything between 1.8k-4.7k should be fine) must be added per each additional data p...

Re: Multi-console gamepad driver for GPIO

Thanks. I updated to 1.1. I'm not sure exactly what changed, but the buttons on all of my controllers (PS1 and PS2) seem to have a mind of their own now. They all seem to be registering randomly, as soon as the controllers are plugged in, and actually pressing the buttons seems to have no effect. I ...

Re: Multi-console gamepad driver for GPIO

That would be awesome! Thanks for looking into it. I tried to dig into the code myself, but have no idea what's going on in there. :D

Re: Multi-console gamepad driver for GPIO

marqs, Thanks for the help on this... and for all the hard work that went into creating this driver! However, after several hours of messing around with this, I am still unable to get the left analog stick on the PSX controller to work on anything other than lr-pcsx-rearmed, and that is by telling i...

Re: Multi-console gamepad driver for GPIO

It's not just that I can't use the analog stick for navigation in the EmulationStation UI. That wouldn't be that big of a deal. But when I go to configure my contollers through EmulationStation's GUI, it doesn't register any input at all on the left analog stick, so I can't configure any of the emu...

Re: RetroPie with 2 PSX Controllers

OK. I figured out how to wire the second controller. It was a bit confusing, since they need to be wired a bit differently than they are wired in the PSX itself, and I scoured the internets looking for someone who explained it in detail to no avail. In the PSX, the ATT/SEL pins are indeed separate f...

Re: RetroPie with 2 PSX Controllers

I'm also trying to figure out how to wire the second controller. Anyone have any luck? The first one seems to be working OK, although the left analog stick isn't working. The second one doesn't do anything. I tried wiring ATT/SEL for Player 2 to Pin 5 of the Raspberry Pi (v2), which is where it says...
