    So I picked up a "new to me" xbox that was already soft modded, and I have my old hard modded xbox.

    I spent some time last night re learning the ropes, how to FTP ect ect.

    I am running into a strange problem....and it happens on BOTH xboxes..

    I installed 2 different SNES emulators, and they both boot up fine, however, once they are loaded I can not navigate the menus with the controller...on both snes emulators??

    Symptoms are like a broken controler, but the controller works, lol. The program themselves seem to run fine, also other emulators work just fine (non snes)

    Can anyone point me in the correct direction please?

    SNES9x-X 0.23 English (worked for YEARS)
    and the 2nd SNES emulator I installed to troubleshoot is ZsnexBox

    It is like neither program detects the controller ????

    Are you using a 3rd party controller? Many linux-based apps can only use first party.

    Lol, at least you had your controller plugged in somewhere. Some times I go to do something and nothing happens, then I look at the XBOX and find no controllers plugged in :p
