SNES to USB converter issue on RPi/OpenELEC
#1
It appears as though the converter that works in Windows doesn't work at all in OpenELEC on the RPi2. Also, for some reason it gets read differently on the Pi. Here's a debug log where it's called HuiJia on the Pi. I attempted to do the standard input thing, and couldn't get any of the buttons to be recognized.

Here's a log from Windows using the exact same hardware usb converter working fine.

Does it work on vanilla OpenELEC/linux?

And watch out, it looks like you'll have the same problem as this guy

mmm, will need to set up regular OpenELEC. May need a minute for that. Smile

Update: Getting retroplayer on generic OpenELEC totally evades me. The test builds are all zips, when OE only recognizes tars when doing a manual update. So I tried renaming the zip to tar (no good). I tried extracting the zip and then putting it into a tar using 7-zip (also no good). In all cases, OE didn't see whatever it needed to see to update.

Can you upload the 4 files in the zip to the "Update" samba share?

Well that's embarrassing. I genuinely had no idea that was an option. I guess you learn something new every day.

Alright, in regular OE, the Gamepad gets recognized and input works fine. Well, maybe not fine. I think I've got the same problem as that other guy, as I seem only capable of going left and not right on the directional pad. But otherwise fine. So I'm guessing it's a Pi issue. See log.

Also, I was really hoping to finally get the SNES failure issue resolved, but on OE it looks like I still can't launch an SNES game. That problem can be found in the same log. No idea how other people are playing SNES games right now.

from the log:
Code:
DEBUG: AddOnLog: Joystick Support: Anomalous trigger detected on axis 1 (initial value = 1.000000)

Your joystick driver combines left and right onto a single axis. The Joystick API has a difficult problem of detecting whether the axis is a trigger, an anomalous trigger, an analog stick, a hat, a pressure-sensitive button, an accelerometer, or entirely nonexistent. In that post I outline my solution and offer some ideas on how we could improve detection.

here's the error with bSNES Mercury:
Code:

The libretro core, game.libretro.bsnes-mercury.so, doesn't exist. This is probably a problem with the build system. Yesterday fortenbt reported bsnes-mercury failed to compile for RPi, which is probably the cause.

Does Beetle bSNES work?

It doesn't show up as a listed option. I select the file and nothing happens.

Check the core matrix. Beetle bSNES doesn't support samba

That did it.
