Hey guys! I just tried to use my Retrode with my new ASUS windows 8 laptop, and while it detects the Retrode I can't map any of the controllers I plug into it. I can see the Retrode lighting up when I press buttons on the SNES controllers, but Joy2Key, and X-Padder don't see them.
 
Also I'm on firmware version 18d which should be the newest version I believe?
 
What's going on? How do I fix this?

Have you tried Windows' own Game Controller dialog (available somewhere through control panel or device manger, if I remember correctly)?

Retrode supports various HID modes to help in case of compatibility issues. Try setting [HIDMode] to 3 in the cfg file, and the Retrode will register as a keyboard (up to 2 players), i.e., you can even type text with it :-) The key assignment is fixed, though.
