I saw several bug reports about gamepads being mapped incorrectly, but I have another issue.

One of my gamepad (a Thrustmaster Score-A) works nicely in PICO-8 on macOS, but it doesn't get recognised in the rpi build. The sdl-jstest tool recognises it in both systems.

Another pad model gets recognised on both systems, so the rpi build of PICO-8 is somewhat working.

Note: I'm using PICO-8 v.0.2.1b on both systems.

Do you have the sdl_controllers.txt filled with the right data ?

I suppose so, as it works nicely with the sdl-jstest tool.

SDL-jstest get it from gamecrontrollerDB, so you could either :

  • find the correct GUID and copy the line into sdl_controllers.txt
  • save the whole file as sdl_controllers.txt in the correct folder (the same as config.txt, see manual)

if the GUID is not in the list, you will probably have to create the mapping yourself.

I actually had to create the mapping, otherwise it wasn't working with sdl-jstest. But when I created it, it worked.

But when I moved that sdl_controllers.txt into pico 8, it wasn't recognised.
