I might have missed something obvious, but I can’t get past the installation. When RetroPie boots up for the first time I’m asked to map the buttons for the first controller, or press F4 to skip. Well, when I press F4, it maps it to ‘up’! I’m honestly stumped. Tried reinstalling a few times, but the problem persists; skipping the button mapping bit is impossible. What am I doing wrong?
If it is the first initial install, you can not skip this. You must have a way of input to control the GUI. If you want, map it to wasd and so on. Then, if you want a controller, they provide input configuration as an option.
