Controls dreamscast

Post by torofinance » Sat 16 Mar 2019 19:18

Can we get a proper tutorial on how to map the buttons for dreamcast please

I have seen -> viewtopic.php?t=1771#p3307

So I have done the following

1. Add the file "controller_RetrostoneController.cfg" to /opt/configs/dreamcast/mappings (with content from above post)
2. Set reincase_input = "0" in /opt/retropie/configs/all/autoconf.cfg
3. In /opt/retropie/config/dreamcast/emu.cfg set evdev_mapping_1 = /opt/retropie/configs/dreamcast/mappings/controller_RetrostoneController.cfg

Seems the buttons are not properly mapped, the left/right/up/down-pad on the Retrostone works for the dateinput but no other buttons do anything.

What version of retrorangepi are you using?

Have you checked that out of retrorangepi forum? I think they might have discuss it already.

Using latest (4.2 full).
The controls work (somewhat) for Sonic Adventure but not for Shenmue. I cannot start the game / get past the first screen.

Any fix for this?
Just got my retrostone it's great but was really wanting to play shenmue
Crazy taxi and sonic adventure work ok
But no dpad is recognised in shenmue
If you hold x I think(yellow button) then press b (red button it does confirm but the d pad is not recognised at all so I can't start the game
I read reicast does no pick up gpio input correctly
But I have tried with official dual shock 3 controller again all controls are detected in menu (time and date etc)
But when I boot into game it has exactly the same problem so I think that's not the case
I think a problem in reicast not selecting pad config
