    I really like the idea of configuring input at start 🙂

    Just a question though: From what i know this works for all Retroarch emulators – except for pifba (needs fba2x.cfg file to be manually edited) and mame emulator.

    Assuming my controller’s file is USB_controller.cfg (created at start up) can this be linked with a fba2x.cfg file which will be auto generated in the right path?? fba2x.cfg typical needs these values:

    [Joystick]
    A_1=
    B_1=
    X_1=
    Y_1=
    L_1=
    R_1=
    START_1=
    SELECT_1=
    LEFT_1=
    RIGHT_1=
    UP_1=
    DOWN_1=

    All these values can be auto-imported from the USB_controller.cfg (or whatever the name is) right?

    It is only a thought about this..

    p.s I dont know if smth similar can be done for mame controls..

    This is something that we’ve thought of and that needs to be done- but currently there are some bugs with the pifba emulator and 4 player support and hat controls, so until those are fixed we can’t really incorporate it into the inputstation module yet.

    As far as mame is concerned, there isn’t a specific config file with controls so I don’t know how it would be incorporated into the controller module.

    yeh mame4all would need source code changes to get default controls from somewhere – automatic control config for pifba is planned – as herb pointed out we have a bug or two to fix first. Cheers.

    That’s good news guys;) Thanks!

    And a final question: Any thoughts about a 4 player automatic configuration? (similar to the 1st player setup i mean)??

    This would be great…

    If all 4 controllers are the same, you should only have to configure one. else- you can just press start in emulationstation and configure each controller that way after you’ve finished the first configuration on boot.
