im having the same issue. im going to reload the image tonight to see if that helps, and f1 while emulating doesnt do anything for me
youdoofus(not calling you names… just addressing you. 😛 ), I don’t think reloading the image is necessary. I noticed that my input_joypad_driver seemed to change when I went updated, udev in 3.2 to sd12 3.3. I tried updating via the screens and “U Update RetroPie-Setup script” but ran into an issue and had to start fresh with a new image. When I loaded my new image and started playing around. I realized my ps3 controller was no longer working for games but was working for emulationstation. I am not sure if maybe the default changed between versions. But as Gizmo89 said:
Go to RetroPie-Menu (in emulationstation) and select “Edit RetroPie/RetroArch configurations”. Select option “1 Change common retroarch options” and select “all”. Set “input_joypad_driver” “udev”.
And this will fix your problem. Remember you have to reconfigure your controller again after you make the change.
New technology doesn't solve all our issues, it changes the issues we have.
