    Hi guys I am currently using a raspberry Pi b+ and have retroPie 3 installed.

    Before I started to fiddle with the retroarch.cfg file when playing roms (in my snes emulator) some of my games gave the option for both player 1 and player 2 to press start in order to start a game. I could always use enter to start player 1 but never had a key configured for player 2 to press start. I went into my retroarch.cfg file contained in //opt/retropie/configs/snes/retroarch.cfg and entered
    input_player1_start = 1
    input_player2_start = 2

    this neither worked to for the player 1 or 2 start but now the enter key did not work to start player 1 as it did before. I also tried :
    input_player1_start = “1”
    input_player2_start = “2”

    note: I definitely saved these files also.

    anyone have any ideas? any help would be greatly appreciated
