    I am editing /opt/retropie/configs/n64/mupen64plus.cfg

    At the line that says:

    Joy Mapping Stop = “”

    I want to make a 2 button combo required to close the emulator. (having 1 makes it too easy to accidentally close the game)

    I have tried
    “J0B8 and J0B9”

    I can’t seem to figure it out. I don’t want to go through retroarch because it runs games with poor textures. Is this possible?



    UP !

    after hours hours of struggle, trying to understand why mupen64plus doesn’t get my hotkey/exit emulator combination, i found this file to edit as well.

    i personally tried
    Joy Mapping Stop = “button(8) button(9)”
    (i guess you have the same N64 replica controller than i do)

    But nothing happened either, does anyone have a solution ? having to hit escape on a keyboard to exit the emulator isn’t an option …



    I’ve been studying a bit more the problem , the file says i wants an event string so i found this document, that teaches us that

    The event string is a structured string and it is composed as


    The various components are separated by : or ::, they are defined as

    i gave it a try but the line
    Joy Mapping Stop = “J0B8:J0B9”
    Makes the emulator stop when i use the button 8, without waiting for the other button to be pushed.
    Any strings experts in here ?
