    Hi guys,

    I’ve updated to the latest retropie from 2.x to 3.3. I understand with the new autoconfig from ES that I need to do some tinkering with the Retroarch cfg for my 8bitdo Nes30Pro. However when I come to use the retropie setup menu, in the retroarchinput option it doesn’t give me the option to configure a joypad. It just gives me two keyboard options. My gamepad works fine in ES and it’s not detecting it as a keyboard. Anyone come across this before? I’d rather not do a clean install.a

    I was also disappointed in seeing this happen, considering a lot of users tend to have multiple types of controllers. It also made configurations painless and easy to rebind for w.e reason especially since ES configuration never properly binded with retroarch.

    Retroarch removed it, not retropie. It was merged into the RGUI and functions essentially the same way.
