Hello,

I am posting here because I really cannot for the life of me figure this out. I am using a recalbox with mupen64plus. My issue is that both of the config files (InputAutoCfg.ini & mupen64plus.cfg) keep overwriting themselves upon starting mupen64plus. I am using a USB Generic n64 controller and I have checked to see if all of the buttons work correctly using jstest /dev/input/js0 and everything seems to be working fine.

On every controller I have the Controller configuration mode set to 0.



I have read the previous issue with Bluerose and countless other threads but cannot find an answer to this overwriting problem.

I normally dont give up in these situations but I've been scouring the internet for over 4 hours troubleshooting this and I just cannot figure it out. If you have any insight I would be forever grateful.

Here is my InputAutoCfg.ini
Code:
[Generic   USB  Joystick  ]
plugged = True
plugin = 2
mouse = False
AnalogDeadzone = 4096,4096
AnalogPeak = 32768,32768
DPad R = hat(0 Right)
DPad L = hat(0 Left)
DPad D = hat(0 Down)
DPad U = hat(0 Up)
Start = button(9)
Z Trig = button(7)
B Button = button(8)
A Button = button(6)
C Button R = button(1)
C Button L = button(3)
C Button D = button(2)
C Button U = button(0)
R Trig = button(5)
L Trig = button(4)
Mempak switch = 
Rumblepak switch = 
X Axis = axis(0-,0+)
Y Axis = axis(1-,1+)
Here is my InputAutoCfg.ini when it gets overwritten:
Code:
[Generic   USB  Joystick  ]
plugged = True
plugin = 2
AnalogDeadzone = 4096,4096
AnalogPeak = 32768,32768

A Button = button(8)
B Button = button(2)
C Button R = button(6)

DPad U = hat(0 Up)
