    I am super new to Linux retropie, my back ground is I am an old school gamer from the Apple 2e to DOS and up from there, including most of the early console systems.

    When I read about the retropie system I new I had to get one and give it a shot. I have had loads of fun with it already, thanks you to all that are involved with it and it’s development!

    I have figured out how to install Retropie V3.0 beta, got my USB controllers to work, even several of my favorite DOS games.
    My issue and I am sure you guys have seen it before is that I want to go wireless with my controllers. So I have a compatable USB to Bluetooth dongle, and a NES30 bluetooth controler. Now I can get the thing to work and be seen by holding down start+b but it sees it as a keyboard, this interferes with the hotkeys during any of the emulators.
    So I disabled the hotkeys in retropie setup, this allows me to play all the game, but I can’t exit the games with out reboot…..
    Is it possible to change the default hotkeys around what I have to map this controller?
    Is it possible to add a command somewhere for an exit combo?
    Bear with me now, it’s been 22 years since I tried to learn any programming!
    Also thanks in advance for any help!

    Yes, you can change hotkeys. This gives an overview

    Many thanks for the reply, that was very helpful, I do have the controller working now in the games, but I still can’t get it to work the menus, is there another place the menus need to be mapped for this to work?
