    Hi Guys!
    Trying to use the analog sticks of my 360 in some PSX Games that actually support it like Crash 3 or Ape Escape, but can’t find a hotkey or sth. to activate them. They were still recognised in other emulators, but the psx refuses to use them :-/
    Is there something I’m missing in my retroarch.cfg?

    input_player1_joypad_index = "0"
    input_player1_b_btn = "0"
    input_player1_y_btn = "2"
    input_player1_select_btn = "8"
    input_player1_start_btn = "9"
    input_player1_up_btn = "h0up"
    input_player1_down_btn = "h0down"
    input_player1_left_btn = "h0left"
    input_player1_right_btn = "h0right"
    input_player1_a_btn = "1"
    input_player1_x_btn = "3"
    input_player1_l_btn = "4"
    input_player1_r_btn = "5"
    input_player1_l2_btn = "6"
    input_player1_r2_btn = "7"
    input_player1_l3_btn = "11"
    input_player1_r3_btn = "12"
    input_player1_l_x_plus_axis = "+0"
    input_player1_l_x_minus_axis = "-0"
    input_player1_l_y_plus_axis = "+1"
    input_player1_l_y_minus_axis = "-1"
    input_player1_r_x_plus_axis = "+2"
    input_player1_r_x_minus_axis = "-2"
    input_player1_r_y_plus_axis = "+3"
    input_player1_r_y_minus_axis = "-3"
    input_enable_hotkey_btn = "8"
    input_exit_emulator_btn = "9"
    input_save_state_btn = "5"
    input_load_state_btn = "4"

    Works now, for everyone having the same Isse:
    Add input_menu_toggle = F1 and input_hotkey_toggle = Esc to your retroarch.cfg.
    Now start a game, hold down Esc and press F1, now you should be in the menu. Go to Settings->Input and change Device Type to Joypad w/ analog and Analog D-Pad Mode to Left Stick ( if you want to play games with analog stick that doesn’t support it like older PSX-Games ). Assign some additional buttons if you like (i.e. for Disc change etc. ), go back to the main menu and save the config. It will be stored in a libretro.cfg in the retropie/configs/all/ folder. Just replace the retroarch.cfg with this one and everything should work now 🙂

    Hi, how do I replace the retroarch.cfg file with the new libretro.cfg ? This has been bugging me for days now, I thought your solution had sorted it but as soon as I exit the game it goes back to the original retroarch config.

    I’m finding the same Wills. Create the libretro.cfg and paste it’s contents into retroarch.cfg and the settings don’t seem to hold. V3.0
