    Hi,

    Here is a quick video showing how you configure a USB controller with MAME within EmulationStation/RetroPie
    As its different to the RetroArch config I thought it may help some people.

    Which file does Mame write the changes to?
    I accidentally mapped the config menu from TAB to none, so I can’t access it anymore.
    Thanks!

    The video helped immensely, but I cannot save the config file permanently.. I went into the /opt/retropie/configs/mame4all/cfg directory but there is no default.cfg in there… I am assuming its a chmod issue? I dont want to change too many things if this isnt the case.. anyone have any ideas on why it wont save config on exit?

    Edit: on retropie v3.0
