I am using ES 2.1 and I have been able to get everything setup except for my controllers. I can open retroarch-joystickconfig, run the program and configure my controller, it sends me back to terminal at which point I use “sudo reboot” and go back into ES. However, when I run a game, my gamepad doesnt work.
I went into the LXDE GUI and navigated to the RetroArch directory, opened the .cfg file and noticed all the values are blank. It’s not saving any on my configuration. I tried multiple times. I even took a picture and tried to manually enter the values, but I cant even save the .cfg file from that point. Is there something I need to do to unlock it? Am I a complete idiot? An answer to either of those questions would be helpful at this point. I’m by no means an advanced user, but this is frustrating. Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.
However, when I go to the retroarch.cfg in the GUI to edit and add values for player 2 the values for player 1 are blank. My goal is to get both gamepads working within the ROM, but if I cant edit the cfg how am I supposed to do that.
