I’m trying to use RetroPie to create an arcade machine. So far it’s going pretty well!
The one problem I’m currently having is that once I’ve booted up RetroPie, selected a console and a game with my controller, played the game for a while and decide that I want to change game, the only option I have is to reboot the whole Pi.
Well, either that or plug in a keyboard so I can click Escape. I’ve been thinking about solutions, and one of them would be very nice if I could change the function of “Escape” to another key. Then I could easily put a “choose” game button anywhere, but it doesn’t work with the escape button, sadly. Is there a way to change the key for quitting the current emulator and return to emulationstation?
Type this into your retroarch.cfg: input_enable_hotkey_btn = input_exit_emulator_btn =
This creates a hotkey button i.e. 8 = select button on a snes controller, and 9 = start button, so that when you hold select and press start it will exit emulator. Remember to only put a numerical value after the =
