@lrvbanned Once ES configures the stick, you can always go back and edit the .cfg file.
go to ~\configs\all\retroarch\autoconfig. My MayFlashF500 config file is called "Sony Interactive Entertainment Controller.cfg" (hmm...)
Go into the file, and change whatever you like. When you are done, save the file and restart Emulation Station. The new settings should be up and running.
I have noticed that the notation for different joysticks/direction controllers is different.
for Dpads you have:
input_up_axis = "-1"
input_down_axis = "+1"
input_left_axis = "-0"
input_right_axis = "+0"
for left sticks you have:
input_l_y_minus_axis = "-1"
input_l_y_plus_axis = "+1"
input_l_x_minus_axis = "-0"
input_l_x_plus_axis = "+0"
for right sticks you have:
input_r_x_plus_btn = "-1"
input_r_x_minus_btn = "+1"
input_r_y_plus_btn = "-0"
input_r_y_minus_btn = "+0"
So there is that.
I generally set the .cfg file for what most of my games use, and for games that require different controls, go into the retroarch setting (select+x)
input_select_btn = "8"
input_x_btn = "..."
and then scroll down to controls, and change the setting there. The control settings with be different based on the emulator and the game.
I use Win32DiskImager on a Windows 10 machine with an SD card slot to make backup images of RaspberryPi SD cards and either Win32DskImager or RaspberryPiImager to put images on new SD cards. You can download Win32DiskImager free from the internet, or they may be a small fee. It's very reliable.
It shouldn't be difficult to understand, but our priorities lie with this project. So if someone is to upload some copyrighted software outside of the forum with a password, and then discuss it here, exchanging information, it becomes our problem.
Uploading a passworded archive to the other site (which wasn't mentioned, but wasn't hard to find) is also imho an abuse of that site.
The forum rules are clear, and users are asked to read them and agree on sign up.
Some people don't care or give a thought to the future of RetroPie, so don't expect me to somehow be understanding towards them.
I use the hotkeys for my retropie on tv...but for the arcade I find it much friendly without. When I need hotkey I just grab the wireless keyboard. The volume switch is already on the cabinet I’m using.
I have also notice on the new retropie image on retroarch hot key binds they added a double tap of the exit. Not sure if code on that can be adjusted as a hard press instead?
I get the 30 FPS slowdowns in ES with the FKMS and KMS driver. I can not pinpoint what is causing the issue. Whether it’s the stock Mesa driver (v19.3.2.) or even the developmental Vulkan driver (has minor chgs to ogl) the issue is persistent.
yeah i might have bugs
i got my mame to work properly
psx runs fairly good .. except the audio / sound
dos works good except the sound audio
yeah i may need a fresh install
but its nice to take in all these tips and suggesting , i appreciate it
@publicENEMY There was a test build that let you select multiple entries with Ctrl-A, Ctrl-Click, and Shift-Click, but alas, the download link doesn't work anymore.
@markwkidd Maybe you could put it up again somewhere? I'm still using it and I find its selection controls very convenient. Alternatively, I could host it in my own Github repo with your permission. At the moment, only my local storage and its backups prevent this version from vanishing into oblivion …
(Oh, I just noticed that I already asked you this nine months ago. I don't want to bug you, just tell me to shut up about it and I will. 🤐 )
edit: According to his profile, markwkidds last login happened in May, 2019. So maybe we lost him entirely. 😟
I scraped NES roms for Attract-Mode with the latest Skyscraper version.
The process correctly fills standard cache folders (covers, marquees, screenshots, wheels) but exports only snaps to Attract-Mode.

yeah i guess its all trail and error ... well i didnt think it mattered with game settings , i just thought it was controller settings that were that's it
well with all this advice you have given me ... i have knowledge what to try and see ... i appreciate that very much
