    I wanted to add extra keys for L and R, which I feel more handy in games games that doesnt require press 2 keys to a specific action, so my plan was using Y key as L and X as R.

    So i edited the “/opt/retropie/configs/gba/retroarch.cfg” :

    input_player1_y = input_l_btn
    input_player1_x = input_r_btn

    and

    input_player1_y = input_l
    input_player1_x = input_r

    but none of those situations did worked…
    I haven’t put specific values since i use different gamepads

    I dont think that would work (unless you put specific values).
    You could try remapping instead, bring up the RetroArch GUI in game with Select and X.

    In certain games that requires using L+B, L+A, R+B, R+B, alike Metroid, its pretty handy to use traditional mapping, but for games alike street fighter its more easier to use the keys Y and X instead L and R, so by using Remapping strategy I will lose benefits in certain games since I cannot have both mappings simultaneously…

    You can have per game cfg files, but I’m not sure you can remap on a per game basis.

    I already fixed the issue:
    https://github.com/libretro/gpsp/commit/04d4ce80b83b3226fd6e0f38faf28b27eba4c674

    I am not sure if this updated version will come on latest retropie 3.3, if not, it requires to compile the source.
