    Hi there,

    So I’ve finally taken the plunge and moved over to 3.0 from my old 2.3 build, and absolutely loving the improvements. It’s much easier in general to configure than before however I have a couple issues I hope I can get some help with.

    I am using an XBOX 360 controller, and it was working well, however the buttons were in the wrong order, so I reconfigured this through the retroarch configuration file directly through one of the cores (The SNES one I think, because of the button layout). Once I made the change, I have found that I cannot exit with the regular Start + Select hotkey on ANY emulator any longer, which includes stuff not part of retroarch like Pi-MAME etc.

    Can anyone please point me in the right direction on setting this back up please?

    Lastly, I have found that when I stick in the wifi settings using the new GUI method, it gets lost upon reboot/shutdown. Can someone please tell me how I can get this saved, or does this need to be done via command line? Thanks in advance for your help!

    This should answer your hotkey button issue:

    And your WiFi should be remembered- I haven’t had any problems with it. Post the results of /etc/network/interfaces. If you have your ssid and password in that file ammend it accordingly before you post.
