I’m quite new to the Raspberry world.
Few days ago, I’ve purchased a Raspberry PI for the sole purpose of creating a Retro gaming station.
I’ve installed Retropie and ES. I have basic things up and running. I can play NES games for the most part. And it’s great!
Now I have a question:
How can I map turbo buttons on my controller? (ES initial mapping only asked for A and B. No turbo versions)
Controllers of my original console (some sort of NES/Famicom clone) had A, B buttons and turbo versions for both A and B. (there were buttons above A and B, which acted as turbo versions of the said buttons below)
In my case, I’m looking for an option, where the turbo-mode is active only while the button is held-down.
Press the controller button “3” == NES button “B” pressed
Press and hold controller button “4” == NES button “B” is repeatedly pressed in turbo mode
Release controller button “4” == NES button “B” turbo mode stops.
Hi all – I put together a Mod to allow for Turbo A and Turbo B buttons for the NES. Instructions on how to install it are available on the link below. It basically maps Turbo A and Turbo B to X and Y on the RetroArch controller.
