I've got a keyboard and a Snes usb controller connected to a pizero via a usb hub (not powered). I can configure both of them with no problem. And each of them seem to keep the configuration. But when I load a game. It seems that both the keyboard and the Snes controller and controlling the same player one.

Is it possible to have 2 controllers working on a pizero?

Is it possible to have 2 controllers working on a pizero?

Yes. I've managed to do it with either usb SNES controller and a wiimote. And also with 2 wiimotes playing concurrently. I bought this bluetooth dongle. And even with an unpowered usb hub it ran perfectly along with a wifi dongle and a SNES controller.

I followed this tutorial to pair the wiimotes.

I didn't manage to get a keyboard to work with a SNES controller. Or 2 SNES controllers side by side. Maybe it's just a matter of getting the right configuration at /home/pi/.emulationstation/es_input.cfg.
