FP0 Left trigger issues
#1
So I get the whole set up done and finished yesterday, However I go to map all the buttons and the left trigger does not map. I thought it did not set properly so I took it back apart and tried pushing it down with out the "L" button, No go as well. Any one else have the same issue? I am thinking its the GPIO pins that are not set properly but I cant find that out till I get the jig I ordered to make sure, ( i pressed mine in way before I got the FP0 kit)

So are you using a Pi you soldered or one that was Press-fit or hammered?

It could definitely be a solder problem. Could you post (or email) a couple pics of the Pi and the attached pins?

We could get you a couple more tests to try. All the buttons should’ve been tested before they shipped, but something could’ve gone wrong in shipping or something I suppose. I’d say it’s much more likely to be a problem with the connection between the Pi and the Freeplay Zero PCB.

They are the press down GPIO, Thats why I am leaning towered that. There is like a wave pattern in the pins like not all of them are fully making contact. I can post some tomorrow.

So I got the GPIO rig and fully set the pins, Still a no go. The right shoulder works fine as well as all the other buttons, but no left shoulder button. Even when I press it without the plastic GBA button on it

Hey SylentSnipe, I'm guessing that there was a copy/paste error on your last post. I am assuming that you meant to post a photo of the pins being a bit too far and then another where they were fixed.

I'll try to get you a couple photos and simple tests to try to determine if it's our board, the connection between our board and the Pi, or the Pi itself.

My apologies yes that's a cop/paste mistake. But the pins are press in. Used the jig and got new pins just in case plus to get another RPZ. But yes please let me know the photos and tests to try. It's not a big deal right now as most I play right now don't use the triggers but it would be nice.

Thank you

I think Andrew has some debugging info (like the photos I mentioned) for this, but he's been rather busy yesterday/today. I'll try to get him to share that with you.

I suggest a fresh image with no games, it is unlikely that there is a button problem and most likely a config issue. If you are using the default image, you should not have to configure any of the buttons. I really think you should start from scratch and build back up to make sure that there isn't an issue somewhere in the config that you did. I know that the retropie configuration for buttons can be a bit finicky.

I have tried that FPZ image and the Game Wizard one. Both have the same issue. Same button. All of the other ones work fine with no issues.

Okay, here is the test document Andrew put together. I think it can be quite helpful to determine if your issue lies in the Freeplay Zero PCB or with the Raspberry Pi Zero (or its connections to the FPZ PCB)
