You can also press start while in emulationstation and choose configure controller. If they are different controllers you’ll need to do it for each controller. If all your controllers are the same you’ll only need to do it once.
Will i be able to use the second controller as a second player joypad with this way?
Or will this second controller setup only be applied to control emulationstation? I just want to have a MAIN CONTROLLER (player 1) to control emulation station + player 1 and another controller to ONLY CONTROL player 2/player 3 and NO EMULATION STATION..Is this possible?
If you run the config from emulationstation it will create a controller config for emulation station and retroarch. If you don’t want it to control emulation station then you can just run the retroarch joyconfig on its own through the setup script.
There are specific emulators (like gba, fba, mame) where the above technique (the ability to auto config your gamepad controls by starting es) doesn’t work. I mean you have to configure it manually..Especially in fba it is difficult, because you need to edit a specific file (fba2x.cfg) and “add” your gamepad’s specific values to this file..
So ..i was wondering..can this controller setup script be updated in order (at least the fba and gba emuls) to be also auto configured???
It will be updated eventually to include non-retroarch emulators but it may be a bit before that happens so until then You’ll need to configure them manually. (I.e. fba, mame4all, advmame, reicast, jzintv, mupen64plus, etc.)
