    I am currently trying to set up retropie so that the keyboard can be used to control player two in super Mario bros 3 for nes. (Specifically the little two player original Mario bros arcade game within the game) I have edited retroarch.cfg in an attempt to make the keyboard control player 2 by changing all control text referencing the keyboard from player1 to player2. This however results in the generic USB game controller controlling player 1 and the keyboard controlling BOTH player 1 and player 2. Can anyone instruct me on how to make it so the keyboard only sends input to player 2?

    Frustrating problem for me, any help is greatly appreciated!

    Note: I am using the newest version of emulation station

    What you two did was you mapped the keys for player 2 but you didn’t unmap the keys for player 1 which are set as default

    just paste something like this:

    input_player1_a = nul
    input_player1_b = nul
    input_player1_y = nul
    input_player1_x = nul
    input_player1_start = nul
    input_player1_select = nul
    input_player1_l = nul
    input_player1_r = nul
    input_player1_left = nul
    input_player1_right = nul
    input_player1_up = nul
    input_player1_down = nul
    input_player2_a = x
    input_player2_b = z
    input_player2_y = a
    input_player2_x = s
    input_player2_start = enter
    input_player2_select = rshift
    input_player2_l = q
    input_player2_r = w
    input_player2_left = left
    input_player2_right = right
    input_player2_up = up
    input_player2_down = down
