Configuring a 6 button controller

First you need to tell retroarch to use 6 buttons, because the default is to use 3.

Launch a Sega 32X game and go to the Retroarch menu (default mapping: select + x). Go to Quick Menu -> Core Options and set the two input devices to 6 button pad. Then exit the Retroarch menu. Once you quit the game, the configuration will be saved within the retroarch-core-options.cfg file under /opt/retropie/configs/all. You do not need to edit this file. These core options will also take affect on any other system which you may use lr-picodrive for (eg. Sega Megadrive, Sega CD).
