    Neo Geo X Controller on Raspberry Pi

    Hi All

    Has anyone managed to get a Neo Geo X controller working on Raspberry Pi, mainly RetroPie?

    I haven't tried to use it on a Raspberry Pi but have used it on a Mac. Seen as a standard USB HID. Nothing special I had to do.

    For Linux systems, you may need to look into specific drivers and calibration:

    If it is standard HID it should be recognized but no guarantee all the buttons work. The standard Linux driver didn't recognize some buttons on a Genesis controller w a USB adapter so I edited the driver and recompiled Linux to get it to work

    Shouldn't this be in General Tech Support, since the Neo Geo X is an abomination in the eyes of the lord?

    Ipac-2 interface, add wires and DB15 connector.. done. Use the REAL thing, or get a custom joystick.

    I've got a raspberry pi2 with retropie - but I'm running an Ipac-4 instead. using a neo-geo controller for my geo games - and nice big captain america 4 player control panel with 6 buttons in the middle two players for geo and other games lol

    make sure you have a keyboard AND also make sure you learn the hot keys or combos to coin-up and start games for neo geo

    hold start, left = start
    hold start, right = coin-up

    I can check this when I get home. I didn't have a Pi when this thread was originally made.

    I grabbed one off amazon assuming it work, but no dice. Read up on some forums about it but their doesn't seem to be any tips on making it work.

    Its detected and works fine in linux, the problem is emulation station. However its filtering HID devices is broken.

    Sorry to bump an old thread but I recently found a fix for this and can confirm it works. It involves SSHing in to your Pi and editing a rules file so the Pi no longer thinks your controller is a keyboard.
