Hi,Scally wrote: ↑Mon Mar 19, 2018 10:49 amThanks for the tips, so I've done a few tests.
1) there are no x505 errors - the screen shows no other error messages either
2) runs fine with just the keyboard
3) indeed, runs fine with only 1 controller plugged in
- with 2 controllers, the first few presses have a second or two delay, then after a few more the delays increase to about 15 seconds
4) I'm using a 5v 2A supply, but I have not noticed any delay issues when running retropie
- I do have 12 buttons permanently lit, powered by the pi through the generic USB controllers (split 6+6), the other buttons only light up when pressed.
- I don't see any kind of voltage warning messages (am running from the command line, so don't know if I'd get one anyway)
I also tried removing the .btn file, but still running with the 2x USB controllers attached - in this case, the keyboard also slows down after the first few key presses, eventually taking 10's of seconds.
Actually, one thing that did confuse me was that the joystick up/down highlight does not go down from one tag to the one below (on the same WallJuke screen) - you seemingly have to move right until it moves to the tag below. Is that by design?
I'd be happy to run some further debug, or do you think I need a different power supply?
this looks like a similar problem joggyBnoob had (https://jp.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewt ... 0#p1285446) but not sure if he sorted it in the end. I think it probably is power supply related, but that's just a guess.
About the joystick up/down etc. - this is not a bug, but a "feature" of the design. When you use the joystick to navigate, left / right takes you to the previous / next song page, and up /down takes you to the prev / next song on that page. The movement of the joystick highlight seems strange because of the order that the pages are defined in the skin config file, and their positions on the screen. If you had pages positioned randomly then the joystick highlighter would also seem to jump randomly around, but all it is doing is going from one page to the next / previous in the order they are defined in the config file.
You can improve this by changing the order of the [page] definitions in the config file (or their positions) to make more sense from a joystick position perspective (note though that this will affect the song codes, but as these aren't used in joystick mode it shouldn't matter). Or another way to do it is to increase the songs per page and define fewer pages...the 'TouchOne' skin is a good example of this...it only has two song pages - joystick mode for this skin works well (in the sense that the joystick highlighter moves around in a sensible way).
