    I have the ControlBlock wired up with a RPi 2 in an old NES. Power switch, LED, and controllers work as expected. However, since NES controllers are really only ideal for certain emulators, I want the option to use the USB ports on the RPi for USB controllers as well. Is there a way I can easily swap out the configurations depending on what I want to use?

    I figure I could easily write a shell script to swap out configuration files if necessary, but I’m trying to set this up so it’ll work without any need to drop into a terminal or run any scripts outside of the EmulationStation UI.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Basically, this question could be related as “How can I use different controller configurations with different emulators?”
    This is more a question for the advanced RetroPie section – I have moved this topic there.
