    Good evening everyone, hope you are all well.

    I have recently bought a mx8 android box and have installed the snes9x app. Everything works except for the second controller.

    I have configured it, mapped keys and so forth, yet when i play a two player game,(super Tennis), it will not work. I have swapped controllers, no problems. I have played single player with both and no problems. No matter what i try i cannot get it to work for two players.

    I have also tried super retro16 and that is even worse. When i play two player match, the controller one also controls number 2!!

    Any help would be great thank you.

    What emulator are you using?
    You normally need to assign the specific controller to the player, as well as mapping the buttons.

    Hi pleng, i'm using snes9x.

    When i plug them in, it reads as sega controller 1 and sega controller 2. I then input every button individually for each controller, but to no avail.

    After configuring the controls for each device, under the heading "Individual Device Settings", press "sega controller 1", this will lead you to a sub menu where you can assign it to player 1. Repeat the process for "sega controller 2", assigning it to player 2

    Well that is strange.

    I configure both controllers and i can see the "individual device settings" option and it is highlighted but, when i scroll down it skips that option??

    You don't press the 'individual device' option, that's just a sub heading. Underneath that heading your "Sega controller 1" and "Sega controller 2" should be listed. Press on each of those and you get the option to assign player numbers

    Well, i tried but to no avail. So i then reinstalled it, pressed the one button configuration and it has seemed to worked!!

    I'm scared to remove the controllers in case it resets:lol:

    Thanks for your help and hopefully i can start reliving my childhood.

    :bow:
