I am for the life of me trying to set my NES emulator up with retro pie to work well.
Issues I’m having:
1. I have a snes look-a-like controller(the “buffalo gamepad”) amazon.com special. Let me be clear, it works well also in other emulators. The issue I’m having is that when I set the in emulator buttons to have: Y as B, B as A, X as Y, A as X, Left button as rewind, Right button as forward hold, then I save the configuration, It works awesome in the emulator, then I reboot; All of the settings go away.
2.If the before issues weren’t enough, if I accidentally press (either X or Y) button it ends up in a search menu that I cant get out of(maybe frozen/crash?).
3.Is there a good way to allow the X and Y buttons to be used as turbo(if you play megaman you would understand)
4. If your feeling particularly generous can you point me in the direction to where I can find out how to hide all of the loading scripts on bootup.
I have a feeling that for some reason the permissions might be screwed up for the file and isn’t properly saved after reboot, and the search thing is just a bug. If there is a cfg file I can edit as sudo, it might be the ticket, so I don’t have to use the in game menu.
Save config is disabled because retroarch would save system specific settings in our global /configs/all/retroarch.cfg and this would be bad. If you have installed ES-Config there is a new menu item in emulationstation named ES-Config. There is (or was?) a RGUI item which can be used to edit the global retroarch.cfg.
