This works. It is a bit of a pain while you are configuring your Pi and the controls, but it works.Møller wrote: I had same problems were it showed in console but Pimame was not getting it.

Rev. 1 don't have pins 2, 3, 27 but i have 0, 1, 21.PhillyNJ wrote:You can use 17 pins:
2,3,4,17,27,22,10,9,11,14,15,18,23,24,25,8 & 7.
I would personally not use 14 TX and 15 RX. I like to keep these pins free in case I ever need to add functionality. These pins are for serial communication and can be used and expanded .
My rig has 10 buttons also, including the 4-way joystick. I am interested in seeing your final PCB when your done.
