Hey guys, I’ve been trying to figure this out for the last week and have still had no luck. I have a retrolink SNES usb gamepad and whenever I boot up a rom to play in retropie when I hit my A button it resets my whole game and X will bring me into this retroarch menu and whenever i hit a button it gives me yellow dialog at the bottom of the screen. I’ve tried configuring the controller in retropi and I’ve set it up in the setup menu as well and then went in and edited the config but nothing has changed. A resets the game and X will bring me into the retroarch menu. Am I missing something. I don’t know what else to try other then starting over from scratch and trying again.
Thank you very much for your reply Floob, that looks like it fixed the hotkeys automatically being used whenever I play again however I still can’t get my controller to exit out back to RetroPi. Everytime I hit select it just pauses the game when I hit select and start it doesn’t do anything and I mimicked your code with my controller. I tried adding the shader inputs too but whenever i typed quote ” to put a number and it put a @. So I don’t know what’s up with that. Thanks again for your help. I don’t know why my select button is acting like a start key.
i am having the same problem with the retrolink snes controller. no matter what i do in retroarch controller configuration the buttons do not get reassigned. select acts like start. a acts like b. b acts like a and so on. I have manually edited USBGamepad.cfg as well and that didnt fix the situation. I am not sure where this controller is pulling its cfg from.
I have the same SNES gamepad and have now DELETED the autoconfig file for the gamepad, with no changes to the main retroarch.cfg and the gamepad is recognized by RetroArch AND still has the wrong layout (a=b, b=a, etc.)
It worked perfectly in 2.6.
Edit: I’m using the raspi 2 if it makes any difference.
