The following is the code you need to put in the NES config file for two controllers, if only using one then omit the second paragraph (Located at /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/nes on your raspberry pi).
input_player1_a_btn = 1
input_player1_b_btn = 2
input_player1_start_btn = 9
input_player1_select_btn = 8
input_player1_left_axis = -0
input_player1_right_axis = +0
input_player1_up_axis = -1
input_player1_down_axis = +1
input_player2_a_btn = 1
input_player2_b_btn = 2
input_player2_start_btn = 9
input_player2_select_btn = 8
input_player2_left_axis = -0
input_player2_right_axis = +0
input_player2_up_axis = -1
input_player2_down_axis = +1
So far so good, hope everything works as well for you as it has for me.
I honestly have no idea but as soon as I started using this I knew something was off. I remember using a NES controller from 15+ years ago. I still distinctly remember the weight of the controller, the feel of it, and how to use it.
Right off the bat I could tell this thing was lighter but that's forgivable, I'm sure with more modern technology they were able to do away with a lot of unnecessary (by today's standards) components. The feel of the controller isn't quite the same but again that's also forgivable, I'm sure it's difficult to get something 100% right.
What is unforgivable is the horrible D pad. Yes, horrible. At first I thought it was something I was doing wrong, like maybe I forgot how to properly use a NES controller. I remember being able to flawlessly transition from pushing right to pushing up without ever removing my thumb from the D pad and it would work perfectly; my character would go from moving right to up without a hitch.
With this controller though it's a total crapshoot, it might work perfectly or your character might just keep moving right even though you are now pushing up.
I read a review from another person that summed up this problem perfectly. The problem is if you push down on the center of the D pad the entire D pad moves down, as if you are pushing all 4 directions at once, and that's the problem, you don't want the whole D pad moving down at once.Read more ›
Man, have I been waiting for a product like this for years! Aside from the small wait of transit for the product, it's actually quite worth it.
-Nicely packaged, sealed on the corners
-USB port is wrapped and taped to prevent transit damage
-cable is nice and long, I think a little over 6 ft
-You can tell the item is new when you try it, the buttons click like a normal NES would, some excessive use will break it in just fine
Mapping was quite easy with all online emulators, I was up and running within 1 minute.
Start and select buttons have a nice rubbery feel to it
If you want to play old school games on your PC, this is the controller to do it with!
Description doesnt mention it, but its running perfect with my Windows 7 home premium 64 bit system.
No complaints yet, If something goes wrong ill come back and write another review, but as of right now I love it.

Works just fine. It's not quite the quality as an original NES controller, but that's to be expected from a low-cost China product. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Amazon Customer
Works great. Used it with Linux and windows with no issues. The controller is super light and that makes it feel kinda cheap but it has never failed me. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Patrick Clarke
Broke really quickly. Replaced with a SNES controller that I can use for both NES and SNES emulation.Published 9 days ago by R. Emmert
not exactly solid construction and doesn't feel like the original controller but it still works after 4 years. So I took off one star for not having the original controller's feel.Published 10 days ago by Pink Muffin
