That is correct sir, on 5.9 and 5.10 it stop working for me, the crazy thing is that also my keyboard does not work as a controller for this games either and I know it use to work because when I place a new game on Batocera I always test the game using my keyboard then my controller, the hole thing is very estrange sir.
Just in case you needed, my PC details are:
AMD A4-4000 Dual Core processor
8GB of RAM
On Board AMD Radeon Graphic card.
I have had almost no issues playing any game for any system using this hardware and Batocera x64 install directly into a 500GB HDD.
