    I have a SNES USB Controller and I really want to change the buttons. Like only in the GBA Emulator.

    I found the config file for GBC and GB. But not the GBA..
    Is it possible tho change the config for GBA?

    Am I going to type it in through ssh or on the PI itself?
    When I tried (both), I got an error saying “command not found”..

    I am not an expert, but still learning. So am I missing something?

    Thanks for the help:)

    You can use Putty to ssh into the Pi or do it directly (which you should since you need to configure it).

    -F4 to get to the terminal
    -Type this:
    cd /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/gpsp/raspberrypi
    -Hit enter
    sudo ./gpsp
    -Hit enter

    You should be in. Try to learn a little about various commands such as cd, sudo, cp, ./ and ~/ (hint: that last one replaces /home/pi in this case)

    Still learnin', but ideas and motivation be flowin'!

    Just wanted to update this in-case someone is looking for this.

    The new command you need to type is

    cd /opt/retropie/emulators/gpsp/raspberrypi


    sudo ./gpsp

    to get to the GBA config screen as the files have been moved 🙂

    Joypad 0 could be hard coded.
