Weird controller detection issue with mario 64 60fps patch

been trying to figure this out for a while… trying to play super mario 64 with retroarch and mupen core. normal mario 64 rom version works fine but 60fps patch seems to not detect controller. ive redownloaded retroarch and only moved rom but still getting same results. project64 seems to play and detect the controller in 60fps patch rom but retroarch just doesnt seem to want to detect the controller when using the same rom. controller works just fine in retroarch menu all the time. ive also tried two different controllers. any ideas?

I don’t think there’s anything to be done about it, if it’s just an interaction between the core (i.e., accuracy issue) and/or the patch. A lot of patches only work on PJ64.
