    So here’s my setup, I’m using a keyboard for player one and a joypad for player 2. I forced the joypad as player to in the retroarch.cfg file in the /configs/all folder.

    So here’s my issue. When there is no second player plugged in, the escape key exits the emulator. When I do plug in a joypad (which always seems to default to index 0) the first player keyboard can no longer use escape to exit the emulator.

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    Its by design with retroarch- anytime a joypad is plugged in it overrides the nulbinding of the keyboard, basically you don’t need a hotkey to exit with a keyboard so it doesn’t expect one but with a joypad often you use the hotkey to exit for gameplay (it would be kind of annoying to press start and have it exit instead of starting the game) if you have a joypad plugged in along with your keyboard you can press select on the joypad and ESC on the keyboard to exit. Or you can change the hotkey settings in the setup script to choose alt- then you’ll press alt+ESC to exit.
