There are lots of joystick/controller/keyboard settings/configurations in EmulationStation, at least to me!
1. when i am at the game station selecting page, when i press Start, there’s a “Configure Input”;
2. when i select RetroPie, there’s a “Configure RetreArch Kyeboard/Joystick”
3. same page, “Controller Configuration”
what’s the relationships and differences between all these options?
You are correct until the third part- the third option is an experimental module petrockblog is working on called inputstation- eventually in theory it should replace the beginning GUI you see when you boot into emulation station the first time. It will not only configure emulation station controls but it will also configure retroarch controls at the same time and will hopefully vastly improve the confusion of controller configuration. See this page near the bottom:
thx for your answer;)
but i recently found that, the 3rd one “Controller Configuration” does not work anymore, after i click it, whole screen turns black, several console lines rolls, and nothing happens, go back to the RetroPie page, what’s going on?
