    Hey all–
    I set up a PS3 controller in retropie/retroarch.

    When I was doing initial setup I accidentally switched the L1/L2 maps(same with R1/R2)… normally I’d just reconfigure the map but when I’m playing an SNES game I LOVE using the larger bumpers for them. Is there anyway to do a select config for SNES while keeping the default behaviors for hot buttons and PSX? I looked in the retroarch.cfg file and I can’t really make out which buttons do what beyond left, right, up, and down. Does anyone know what the actual keymap for a PS3 controller looks like in retroarch(X=value, L1=value, etc.)?

    Thanks in advance,
