I’m running Emulationstation 3.0 beta that uses Stella for Atari 2600 emulation. I’m using a generic Xbox game pad controller for input. The 2600 games work fine with the D-pad controller and “b” button mapped as the moving and firing respectively.
BUT – I can’t leave 2600 games. The only way I have to get out of a running 2600 game is to pull power on the RPi.
I have a Bluetooth keyboard attached and NO key on the keyboard will exit an Atari game, or, take me to a configuration menu for Stella keys. Esc, tab, that should work do nothing. And I don’t have a button on the controller to exit. I suspect I’ve buggered up the mapping somehow when I mapped it a couple of weeks ago, but, I re-imaged the SD card with a fresh ES 3.0 beta to no avail.
Is there a key combination that will exit the emulator? Or take me to the menu?
Or, do I need to edit a file on the system to remap the keys? Any help would be appreciated but I’m quite inept with UNIX so even simple file editing is a challenge for me.
I just tried Ctrl-q to no avail. I know my keyboard works as the tab, esc, etc. keys work fine under MAME. I also tried SELECT+START which are mapped to two keys on my controller.
Any other ideas? I think if someone can guide or explain where the key mapping file is for Stella I could maybe edit that file and get escape and tab enabled again. Escape is supposed to leave the game and tab would take you to the Stella control menu.
I am also looking for this same info and also how to actually configure the video settings (like on the Windows version of Stella) where you can select the refresh (PAL vs NTSC etc), scanline options etc
But, for now just being able to exit back to the main EmulationStation screen will be a bonus!
(This is my first post to the forum so a big hello to everyone and I will post an introduction soon- if there is thread of that nature)
