SNES Controller X button autofire pls help

Postby MRJ » October 30th, 2015, 8:15 am

I can´t play any SNES/SFC games without any controller malfunctioning. The X button is constantly triggered automatically as if autofire was enabled. I tried pretty much everything (resetting all controllers etc.), nothing seems to resolve the issue. I tried original SFC Controller, original SNES Controller, Wireless Retron 5 Controller, 3rd Party Snes Controller :(

Anyone experienced the same issue; I was not able to find anything on the issue...

Ok, after remapping a new profile the button is not triggered automatically (noticed autofire x had a button assigned). Now whatever I do: one button is not working, using the original Wireless Retron Conroller the Y button is not working, using an orignal controller the x button does not work at all. What is it with this thing?! Snes is unplayable whatever I do. Is there anything that I am missing?

If anyone still reads this. After Reseting everything it´s working again. According to Hyperkin (who were friendly enough to answer) the controller assigned for Snes should be "any controller" to avoid this. Still, sometimes it´s not working.
Ps. I´ve been using 8Bitdo´s Wreless-Snes-Conroller lately and it´s fantastic (worked right out of the box, Retron 5 mode was already installed (hold L and Start)). Functions cannot be assigned, but controll is superb (pushing a,b,L,R emulates home button) - battery lasts about 15 hours.

Glad you got it working, and yeah the SFC30/SNES30 controller is amazing. One of the best controller purchases i've made in awhile
