I’ve built a “PiSP Pocket” device by installing a Raspberry Pi 3 into a gameboy pocket. An annoying inconvenience I’m having is the requirement to plug in a keyboard when I want to tweak retropie settings like wifi, audio, memory splitting, etc.
So I’m trying to figure out a way to make my controls (which are USB via Teensy) emulate keyboard strokes outside of emulators and emulation station. I know emulators allow keystrokes via hotkeys, but they don’t seem to apply to Retropie’s settings that are accessible as a “system” in emulation station. Clicking on those settings launches what appears to be a shell script/console window that requires a keyboard.
I’ve spent a couple hours researching apps like joy2key and QJoyPad but they seem to function only or best as a GUI which I can’t do with Retropie…
Does anyone have any ideas for accomplishing this?
