1) https://koka-shop.de/competition-pro-us ... ition.html I bought the USB Comp Pro. I was able to define directions and buttons over the core menu, and it worked fine in the menu. However I can't get any response in the NES core.
2) https://www.ebay.de/i/232908040742 this USB->DB9 adaptor works fin under Windows, however cannot be configured in the core menu. Every button and direction is registered as 0001/0001. HID\VID_0001&PID_0001&REV_0102
Any tips for getting either or both working ?

Has anyone accessed the serial port from a Linux PC to debug joystick issues? Am I missing something?

Look for modern gamepads instead. Chinese PS3 replica is very cheap and has a lot of buttons.

MiSTer already provides good enough and independent from implementation flexibility of input.
I've made implementation preventing diagonal events in some arcades - it's not that hard and completely independent.

There is no on-board bluetooth. Using USB dongle is not convenient as it will require driver on Linux - this will increase loading time as kernel will need to include many drivers for different BT dongles. Also BT will require pairing procedure which will need special dialogs and additional inputs. Overall it will add too much complexity.
