    Since i use different gamepads I really love the joypad_autoconfig_dir feature!

    This is my file playsegacontroller.cfg located in /opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/configs/ for the usage of all emulators:

    input_device = "playsega controller"
    input_driver = "udev"
    input_b_btn = "1"
    input_y_btn = "0"
    input_select_btn = "7"
    input_start_btn = "8"
    input_up_axis = "-1"
    input_down_axis = "+1"
    input_left_axis = "-0"
    input_right_axis = "+0"
    input_a_btn = "2"
    input_x_btn = "4"
    input_l_btn = "3"
    input_r_btn = "5"
    input_enable_hotkey_btn = "8"
    input_exit_emulator_btn = "7"
    input_reset_btn = "6" 

    But for NES emulator I wanted to use this settings:

    input_device = "playsega controller"
    input_driver = "udev"
    input_b_btn = "0"
    input_y_btn = "4"
    input_select_btn = "7"
    input_start_btn = "8"
    input_up_axis = "-1"
    input_down_axis = "+1"
    input_left_axis = "-0"
    input_right_axis = "+0"
    input_a_btn = "1"
    input_x_btn = "2" 
    input_l_btn = "3"
    input_r_btn = "5"
    
    input_enable_hotkey_btn = "7"
    input_exit_emulator_btn = "8"
    input_reset_btn = "6"
    input_save_state_btn = "3"
    input_load_state_btn = "4" 

    So I saved this settings into /opt/retropie/configs/nes/joypad/playsegacontroller.cfg
    and I changed the file /opt/retropie/configs/nes/retroarch.cfg by adding the line joypad_autoconfig_dir = "/opt/retropie/configs/nes/joypad" but didn’t worked v.v …

    Anyone knows how to solve this situation?

    I do this as well, I just run different retroarch joystick configs like this:

    NES:
    sudo ./opt/retropie/emulators/RetroArch/retroarch-joyconfig -j 1 >> /opt/retropie/configs/nes/retroarch.cfg

    SNES:
    sudo ./opt/retropie/emulators/RetroArch/retroarch-joyconfig -j 1 >> /opt/retropie/configs/snes/retroarch.cfg

    and so on….then you have a separate retroarch config file for each emulator…why are you naming them weird things? 🙂

    Note for 2.6.0 the path is
    /opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/

    (or you can manually add your button config directly into )
    /opt/retropie/configs/nes/retroarch.cfg

    Yep /opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/ its the path of joypad auto config, but since I use different gamepads and I want different mappings in certain emulators I was looking for a option that would allow me to certain emulators to load a different joypad auto config path specially the emulators of consoles that has only 2 buttons alike gamegear, nes and master system since there is too many free buttons i can use them to quick load and quick save and stuff.

    If i would manually add my configs into /opt/retropie/configs/nes/retroarch.cfg I I wouldn’t have the same benefits as I do with joypad auto config.
