    Is it possible to disable the second controlblock controller ?
    I only use one and I want second player to always be usb stick plugged in raspberry.

    Also is it possible to customize “mame”, “snes”, “arcade” etc… presets from /etc/controlblockconfig ?

    Just find a quick workaround for retroarch. I added those lines to my config file :
    input_player1_joypad_index = “0”
    input_player2_joypad_index = “2”
    input_player3_joypad_index = “3”
    input_player4_joypad_index = “4”
    input_player5_joypad_index = “1”

    So controlblock 2 is always player 5, letting the space for usb gamepads.

    I respond to myself :
    First subject is a duplicate of topic http://blog.petrockblock.com/forums/topic/disabling-controlblocks-second-controller/ though my workaround works well.

    For customizing modes, I had to change the source, recompile and reinstall it

    in Controlblog git folder :
    sudo make uninstallservice
    sudo make uninstall

    I changend this file according to my needs
    https://github.com/petrockblog/ControlBlockService/blob/master/src/controlblock/ArcadeGamepad.cpp
    (the //gamepad button section)

    then make
    sudo make install
    sudo make installservice
    sudo reboot
