Hello!

When I first built my RetroPie, I used a generic USB SNES controller and was able to get the hotkey functionality to work. When I switched to a new controller, I was able to get all of the button inputs to work successfully, but I can’t get the hotkeys to work properly. See below for an excerpt from my retroarch.cfg file (taken from /opt/retropie/configs/all).

I verify that all buttons work, specifically start and select, but I’m not having any luck.

Questions:

1. Do you think I should create a brand new config file and start from scratch?

2. If so, how can I do that? I’m happy to check out other links.

3. Is there any other config file that I could update?

4. Do you notice any issues with the configs below?

5. Any other suggestions?
