    I have been reading and reading and going in circles. I have setup retroarch, and of course, whichever controller I use, that is the controller that will work.

    All I am trying to accomplish is setting up an NES controller to work with NES games, SNES for SNES games, and eventually Sega Genesis (I am using SEPARATE USB adapters for each system that I will plug in depending on which system I am playing). Which file do I need to edit? I added a controller config file (the controller name that shows up in emulation station when I proceed to setup the controller) to /opt/retropie/emulators/RetroArch/configs with appropriate mapping, but that did not work.

    Please tell me what config file I need to edit! This should be easy but I’ve spent days and days and I am getting frustrated.



    For each system you want specific button mappings for, you would edit the retroarch.cfg file found here

    and paste in the button config that can be found in your auto generated file(s) here:

    On that basis you could alter the autoload of config files value in the main retroarch.cfg as your system specific retroarch.cfg files would be loading that bit anyway. Although I guess it doesnt matter if you keep autoloading.

    This may help
