    Hi Folks,

    I’m running the latest Retropie V3.0 (not RC1 or beta4) on a Pi2.
    For my N64 I use a retrolink USB Clone, which is noticed as a “GenericUSBJoystick” – so after setting it up I have:

    /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch-joypads/GenericUSBJoystick.cfg

    input_device = "Generic   USB  Joystick  "
    input_driver = "udev"
    input_a_btn = "6"
    input_b_btn = "8"
    input_l_btn = "4"
    input_r_btn = "5"
    input_l2_btn = "7"
    input_start_btn = "9"
    input_down_btn = "h0down"
    input_up_btn = "h0up"
    input_left_btn = "h0left"
    input_right_btn = "h0right"
    input_l_x_plus_axis = "+0"
    input_l_y_plus_axis = "+1"
    input_l_y_minus_axis = "-1"
    input_l_x_minus_axis = "-0"
    input_r_y_plus_btn = "2"
    input_r_x_minus_btn = "3"
    input_r_y_minus_btn = "0"
    input_r_x_plus_btn = "1"
    input_enable_hotkey_btn = "7"
    input_exit_emulator_btn = "9"
    input_reset_btn = "8"
    input_load_state_btn = "4"
    input_save_state_btn = "5"
    input_state_slot_increase_btn = "h0right"
    input_state_slot_decrease_btn = "h0left"
    input_menu_toggle_btn = "0"
    

    So my hotkey-Button is “Z” – that’s the button on the back and all the “hotkey-functions” are working great, for example Exit Emulator, save oder load a slot, etc. BUT The funktion of the Button Z won’t have any effect in the gameplay until I uncomment it and reload the emulator.

    #input_enable_hotkey_btn = "7"

    So either key “7” is working in the gameplay or it has its function as a hotkey_enable but both at the same time seems not working. I got the same behaviour when I use some other button on the pad.

    Any suggestions ?
    All other systems like NES or SNES works just fine.

    Thank you for you help

    I’m having exactly the same issue. What I did:

    in /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

    input_enable_hotkey = alt
    input_load_state = f4
    input_save_state = f2
    input_exit_emulator = escape

    and commenting out in /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch-joypads/GenericUSBJoystick.cfg

    #input_enable_hotkey_btn = “7”
    #input_exit_emulator_btn = “9”
    #input_reset_btn = “8”
    #input_load_state_btn = “4”
    #input_save_state_btn = “5”
    #input_state_slot_increase_btn = “h0right”
    #input_state_slot_decrease_btn = “h0left”
    #input_menu_toggle_btn = “0”

    Basically I’m saving and exiting my n64 emulator via keyboard.
    Unfortunately I haven’t found a better solution. 🙁
