RetrOrangePi 4.1 - Orange Pi Zero GPIO - Getting GPIO to work
#1
Hi everyone,
I am trying get the GPIO controls to work. I activated GPIO controls in RetroOrangePi menu and tried both the NES and TZ options. Nothing happens when I gorund the respective control pins. I tried rebooting, reactivating the option etc. Is there anything wrong I am doing?

Edit: When I reinstall TZ_GAMES_SP it says "ADD the line uinput in the /etc/modules". What exactly should I add to /etc/modules?

actually anything, it works, BUT only 40-pin GPIO afaik. It's likely to work on the OPi zero as soon as we tweak the python script (hopefully)

Can you give me some guidance so that I can tweak the code myself?

edit ~/RetrOrangePi/GPIO/drivers/tz_gpio_controller.py and change pin bind (PA1, PD14 etc)

The button assignments are already correct in that file. I tried grounding PA6 and PA1 (up and down) and nothing happened.

what does "sudo service tz_gpio status" say?

how exactly are you "grounding" the buttons?

The following is the output of "sudo service tz_gpio status":

I am manually connecting (touching) the respective pin to ground using a wire.

this is how i connect, one wire goes from COM to GPIO assigned pin , ground chain wire goes from NO to GND GPIO pin

   

   

NOTE: never tested in OrangePi Zero btw

What difference does it make as long as both pins are connected through a conductor? BTW, connecting using a piece of wire works perfectly on a Raspberry Pi Zero. Is there anything else I need to do? Have I missed a step? Please help.

We still have to test the Orange pi Zero to be able to help.
