I’m using retropie 2.5 on my pi2
My Logitech f710 (on xinput) is working but i can’t change mapping at all. It looks like it doesn’t even look for the files (wrong path????) i’ve tried changing /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg and /opt/retropie/configs/nes/retroarch.cfg but no matter how i map the buttons, nothing changes at all (yes i am saving those files).
there has to be some kind of config somewhere but i couldn’t find anything except for /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/supplementary/settings.xml (had a path change from retroarch to something else but didn’t do anything as well) on the pi and nothing related with google.
I’ve initially configured the controller with joyconfig (sudo ./retroarch-joyconfig -j 0 >> /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg) and was wondering, why joyconfig has shown me other button numbers than the ones in /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/supplementary/RetroArchConfigs/LogitechGamepadF710.cfg even though it shows “joypad port#0 (Logitech Gamepad F710) configure” on the screen when i’m starting an emulator.
Does anyone know where to look or even a potential fix for this issue?
I just want to exit an emulator by controller 🙁
If autoconfig is activated retroarch doesn’t check the configfolders defined in the es_systems file and just uses the autoconfig for every emulator. At least it did that for me.
I guess you’re relating to those lines?
# Enable input auto-detection. Will attempt to autoconfigure
# joypads, Plug-and-Play style.
# input_autodetect_enable = true
Will try this when i get home. Is there a way to make this work in Kodi (experimental retropie package) as well? I just found some xbox 360 controller stuff that will probably work but i don’t want to fuck up the configs again if there’s a cleaner way of binding the gamepads input to keyboard buttons (without xboxdrv).
