Thanks for the response, It was mainly Amiga games, which mostly are two or three buttons anyway, but if I wanted to so SNES games, then the start and select are needed. Is there a config file that accept an input as two buttons, such as Start+A = Select?
@jasonmadeapie How do you change the controls ? When you open the controls menu (for P1), you have on the left the button on your RetroPad (your controller) and on the right the emulated buttons. Use Left/Right to change the values on the right, cycling between the possible buttons that the system accepts. Go back in game and test the buttons, then once you're set, just save a Core or Content Remap from the Controls menu.
Well i can F4 out of it, and outside of RetroPie it works fine, same with the controller, but if i try to configure any kind of device as a controller in RetroPie it has that problem.
I got a USB Hat on the pi and thats how i connect USB and ethernet to it. it got power LEDs for each of the inputs and nothing seems out of the ordinary with it when entering into EmulationStation, so i doubt that the Hat is the cause of the issue.
That depends. First and foremost, it's a secure behaviour to only give yourself administrator rights (e.g. via sudo) when absolutely necessary. Also, if you happen to change the file's owner or permissions by accident in a way that the normal user can't access them anymore, it can cause further problems.
In short, by training yourself to use sudo only when necessary you avoid future problems and, at worst, security holes.
In your particular case, mere editing an existing file shouldn't make you any trouble, but if the file doesn't exist, you'll create it with the owner root instead of pi. Because a new file will be created with only write permissions for the owner, any application like an emulator that's run by pi wouldn't be able to write to this file afterwards.
Again, that may or may not be a problem depending on the file, but avoiding to use sudo will negate this uncertainty alltogether.
@barbosa22 there was an update to lr-PCsx where it seems it now emulates a standard, analog, or DualShock controller. If you originally setup to use and analog controller, Change it to DualShock. Also some games require it to be set to standard, especially older games. Ran Into this a week ago where Medal of Honor would not work after starting a game.
Hey, @mitu, here is the photo that came up with the USB devices.IMG_2163.jpeg .
As to P1/P2 controllers, I configured only P1 and that did the trick for both.
As I'm writing this I realized my mistake and am horribly embarrassed! I just realized that "X" refers to button "X" and not keyboard "X". I reset my controls again to see which is "X" (I think in terms of Buttons A, B, C, etc.), and now I've been able to get into the menu and reconfigure. Problem solved. I really appreciate all the help!
