    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?

    Note: I’ve tried including and removing quotes on the hotkeys, to no avail. The controller I’m using is the Buffalo Classic USB Gamepad .

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Ignore this post, sorry about that. After more thorough investigation, I believe this is a problem with one of my controllers.
