@mitu Thank you, I'll try this out and get back to the community.
it is my understanding that lr_stalla doesn't support paddles, so I don't know how well it handles paddle games with more than 2 players.
try to install the stand-alone stella
You can also get the 2600-dapter D9 and use real Atari paddles
@whitesimo honestly you should get the romsets for lr-mame2003 or advmame and use those.
@edm203 No, I added my own. There seems to be an issue with emulationstation getting the correct name too.
Nevermind. Found it. Under Retroarch, it's quick menu -> options, then last option which is max players. Change from 2 to 4.
Thanks Alex! I just did that and it worked!
