Amiberry and Speedlink competition Pro Joystick

Hello,

I'm running Amiberry on a Raspberry Pi 4, and using a Speedlink Competition pro Joystick, the Problem is that only the Right Fire button works in Games.

Anyone know how I can remap the Controller so The left Fire button is the main button?

I can't find anything within the software to reconfigure the controllers...and google not seem to be helping much.

Any help, much appricated.

Thanks

Hello, man,

I am having the same configuration and the same problem, but I have managed to solve it. Are you running Amiberry from Retropie? The only thing that has worked for me is going to the Amiberry menu->custom controls and then setting north as Joy2 Fire.

Thanks for the reply, just tested that and it worked for me too!

Many Thanks.

The build is a Pimiga build, so think i'ts just a Plan Amiberry build on Raspian.

Good to know it worked for you, my friend, I unfortunately didn't manage to download the image.

You can still download the image from the facebook PiMIGA group or from the Patreon page ;-)

Thanks for figuring out this problem, as I have the same joystick but I have not tried it yet, so this is really useful info to know :-)

I'm having the same issue, I tried following your instructions but I don't understand what you mean about setting 'north' as Joy2 Fire. I'm using retropie on a Pi3 and have tried everything I could find to set the left button as the fire button but with no success.

I think in the latest Amiberry it doesn't let you remap the fire button, so I ended up swapping the global controls of the fire buttons on Retropie and now it works great. Just reconfigure your controller and swap the south and the north button.

Let me know if it works, mate!

Cheers for replying so quickly bud ? I don't know, what you mean by North and South. Could you possibly take me through step by step how you did this. I've a number of others eagerly awaiting your reply ha ha ?

Gladly, mate, even though I don't have my RPi nearby, I will try to help with what I remember. When you first start RetroPie, do you remember a screen where you have to map your controller? You can remap the controller by pressing start or select (I don't remember which) and choose control settings or something like that. In this pop up you just map different buttons of the Competition Pro to different buttons on RetroPie.

Does this make sense so far?

Ok, so the next step it to remap the directions (up, down, left, right) as per usual and, after that, IIRC you are asked to enter buttons for North and South. So you just press the right button for North and the left button for south (if memory serves right) and voila!

That's where you've lost me, there's no mention of North or south anywhere.

Ok, maybe it says button A/B/X, I cannot remember exactly, but it's the first two you have to swap around.

Yeah I've already tried every combination of button in there but it doesn't make any difference in game, it just goes back to it's default settings.

Bummer! Weird, because when I swapped the buttons there, it worked perfectly in Amiberry, without any problems.

What is your Amiberry version?

Maybe you need to reset all your controllers and remap them from scratch? There is an option for that in Retropie or Retroarch settings.

Slightly off topic to your question here...


The pimiga build has loads of HNY virus on there so make sure to clean it all, or don't share on a physical amiga.
