    RetroPi Xbox Controller

    Thanks. I had not heard of this.

    I have not actually taken my IR thermometer to it, but after about an hour of playing two player Dr. Mario, the bottom middle of the controller is slightly warm.The hottest part is actually the charging circuit, if you are charging a low battery and playing at the same time, the jewel gets hot. Not melt/burn you hot, but certainly noticeably hot.I'll try to remember to have my thermometer next to me next time I play with the controller. Unfortunately my hair dryer damage to the top part has worsened with use and has made the Dpad unreliable, so I'll probably have to tear down and rebuild that portion of it at some point.
