I am super new to this whole RetroPie project so please bare with me. I love this thing (talk about bringing back old memories) but I had a question. How come my controls partially work?
So I followed zsprawl’s post here:
Everything went fairly smooth other than I had to realize my controllers came up as 0 and 1 instead of 1 and 2 but that was easy enough to see (had a keyboard plugged in at first which is why it changed) and I did overclock to 900 (Medium) because of some audio/gameplay lag I saw. My Retro boots up great, I have my ROMs on it and the controller scrolls through everything perfectly in the main menus. I can launch games and play through SOME but not all games and this is the odd part. As some background, this is a Model B (512), Raspberry Pi with Buffalo Classic USB gamepad controller (looks like SNES) with an 8GB memory SD card.
So I will give an example, a certain hedgehog game plays great except you can hold the down arrow and tap the A or B button to do a super spin as with the console. There are a few other games that for whatever reason the original controls may not function (say a red hat moustache guy throwing pills like tetris) like the console and granted it can be due to the fact that its not a stock controller but here is the really odd part I cant figure out. The hot key, exit key, load and save do not work for me using the settings given in the post. I really just want to be able to exit the game and go back to the main menu to play another game without having to pull power and restart everytime. Below is my retoarch.cfg portion, can someone tell me what I maybe missing? Do I need to change 8 and 9 to 6 and 7 or something?
