Reply To: Shader hotkeys not working Retroarch

hey there,

i was also struggeling today with shaders. my prob is more, that the shaders do not work the way i expect them to be, but this is another story ;). when troubleshooting this, i tried also to get the shader change when inside an emulator to work, to see the differences the shaders provide.

in my case purely on mame4-all and fba, but i guess this is applicable for all retroarch bases emus.

what i did was .. setting up the controller config here, to setup the general hotkey buttion and the buttons who are mapped to change the shaders when pressed in combination with the hotkey:

– /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch-joypads

in my case, i have an gpio controller in an arcade cab and therefore this file, but like before i guess this is also applicable to your joypads but with an other joypad.cfg file

– GPIOController1.cfg (replace filename with the cfg your controller represents)

here is a small snipped part from inside my conf …

# define hotkey button
input_enable_hotkey_btn = “8”
# define hoteky combo keys
input_exit_emulator_btn = “7”
input_menu_toggle_btn = “2”
input_select_btn = “6”
input_start_btn = “7”
input_state_slot_increase_axis = “+0”
input_state_slot_decrease_axis = “-0”
input_shader_next_btn = “0”
input_shader_prev_btn = “1”

maybe this helps with setting up your config … fingesr crossed 😉
