[SOLVED] 2-player USB encoder not recognized in retroarch
I found the solution above in a forum, referring to a different controller name. I just changed the name and it worked for me, so I suppose that's the way to go. Maybe you can add the procedure to the script that is executed after the end of input configuration, to add that line automatically?

By the way, I tried configuring the gamepads in retroarch and in mame menu, but player 1 up-down-left-right also move player 2, no matter what. Something is mixed up. I found this thread that suggests a way to identify the controller as 2 different gamepads, but there is no /boot/cmdline.txt in your build so I can't test it.

Well, I solved that issue the ugly way.

It seems the problem with the p1 stick moving both players lies in the cfg file in configs/all/retroarch-joypads.
I deleted the file altogether, then everything worked just fine except the hotkeys. So I recreated the file with only the following content:

input_device = "D_R_M JUYAO Dual Arcade"
input_driver = "udev"
input_load_state_btn = "4"
input_exit_emulator_btn = "7"
input_reset_btn = "1"
input_enable_hotkey_btn = "6"
input_save_state_btn = "5"
input_state_slot_increase_btn = "h0right"
input_menu_toggle_btn = "2"
input_state_slot_decrease_btn = "h0left"
Finally, the gamepads work in ES and in Retroarch as expected. I bet my hat it is NOT the ideal solution, but it works so I'll leave it as it is Smile
