    I’m quite new to the RetroPie and I’ve got a slight issue: I need to configure a pair of usb gamepads (
    But when I press F1 during gameplay it does nothing –> it’s meant to come up with somekind of menu to be able to re-configure the controlls right?
    I’ve made sure that in /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg the input_menu_toggle is set to f1 and that there is no # in the front of the line

    Can anyone help?

    Your controller file is likely in (for retroarch) /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch-joypads/

    In there it will most likely have a setup that will allow Select + X to bring up the menu.
