    Hi all,

    I’m using retropie to replace an old mame setup in a cab and have got everything setup & working beautifully with 1 exception

    in FBA the select button is the hotkey, which prevents me from ‘inserting coin’

    my input is all running through an ipac so I don’t need a hotkey at all (i think)

    so my question is, how to I disable hotkeys in fba (or the whole system) and make sure that the ‘esc’ key will exit game in fba?

    I’m sure this is a simple fix, but I can’t for the life of me find the answer :/

    Thanks in advance

    thanks, I did find that info before and it didn’t make a difference when I tried it :/
    so still unable to insert coins

    maybe there’s something I’m missing
    I just edited the cfg file and reuploaded it, then rebooted retropie
    no change

    I’m having this same issue with all mame games requiring an “insert coin”. Info at https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/FAQ#why-cant-i-insert-coins-in-arcade-emulators does not fix the problem. I’m using a usb snes like pad, like http://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B00PL271Y0?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00

    Any help?

    Try a different FBA emulator. I have found that with some FBA roms in some emulators you can’t insert a coin no matter what, even after reassigning the hotkey. Particularly Capcom roms. However, if you use the same rom in a different emulator, it works fine. With the right fba bios some games will run in nearly any of the fba emulators.

    ^^ my other hobby
