Xbox 360 Retroarch


Retroarch is actually more of a modular emulator interface than a frontend which allows you to plug emulators into it by way of 'cores'. It enables you to run classic games on a wide range of computers and consoles through its slick graphical interface. Settings are also unified so configuration is done once and you're all set for every emulator.

I confirm I am experiencing the same issue with an Xbox One Elite Controller connected through the official wireless adapter on Windows 10. To be more specific, the controller does work once you manually assign the bindings. Pressing the 'A' button would then record into the config file as inputabtn = '1', so RetroArch will know that the 'A' button on your physical controller corresponds to the 'A' button on RetroArch's virtual controller, the RetroPad. Therefore, the next time you play a game such as Super Mario Bros. Pressing the 'A' button will tell RetroArch to press the 'A' button on its RetroPad, causing Mario to jump.

Setup Xbox 360 Retroarch

We show our recommended settings for the X-Arcade in Mode 1 below, but if you are starting from scratch you can simply download our retroarch.cfg file and drop it in your RetroArch directory (overwriting the original). When you run it the first time it will fill in the rest. If you have an existing setup note that this will overwrite your settings.
