I use a SNES USB controller in openmsx on an Android tablet. I need a little help because the controller doesn’t work properly.

I tried different openmsx connectors:
(1) Multitouch and on-screen joystick. In this connector I’m not able to use left/right/up/down buttons. With the A, B... buttons I’m able to jump in a game.
(2) With the connector Gamepad 1 I’m able to use left/right/up/down buttons. But in this configuration the A,B.. buttons doesn’t work.

I tried "Device configuration" remap physical keys, with no luck.

How can I configure the controller correctly?

I'm sorry, I have no idea. Does the controller work properly with other Android games that are based on the commandergenius SDL port? (E.g. Commander Genius ;-))

In the Snes9x emulator (Android) I can bind, for example, A,B,X,Y buttons with G2, G3, G1, G4. Is this possible with openmsx, with (device configuration) remap functionality? How?

Have a cheap SNES USB controller as well, have tried it on SMW, had to set it to joypad though in debug menu of the game, so I'm not sure if any game is compatible with this.

I never used that device configuration remap functionality. You can also look at this: https://www.msxinfo.net/files/openmsxarcade.JPG or the full conversation: https://www.msx.org/forum/msx-talk/openmsx/need-a-little-hel...
