    My controller- primarily a Usb Buffalo Snes of the typical style- was configured to work, but instead of performing in game functions and entering or exiting normally, pressing controller buttons causes automatic save states, display settings to change, or sudden leaving of the game with a single push of a button. Is something wrong with my configuration?

    Assuming you’re using the RetroArch emulators (NES, SNES, Genesis, etc.), it sounds like your RetroArch hotkeys are bound to your controller buttons, and your “enable hotkey” switch is permanently ON. You’ll need to muss around with retroarch’s config files to fix it.

    Floob has a really sweet tutorial that goes over the whole hotkey system here:

    But a search for hotkeys in retroarch will probably put you on the right track.
