@mitu yeah that option falls in the same place as binding the buttons. So when i change the index, it always reverts back when i start the rom again. no matter what i do it wont stick.
Save core remap,
save game remap,
save current configuration,
save new configuration.
Save on exit ON
The only thing that seems to stick is to go in the file through winscp on my computer ,make the changes there and saving. That works fine for remapping buttons. But i Cant find the player index rows in the file.
Hmm maybe i can just change player_input_3 to player_input_4? I didnt think of that.
@sirhenrythe5th I actually had another think about the key combination for select +x and realised this is a
hotkey + X.
My hotkey is set to the little button on the bottom right of the 8bitdo controller.
I pressed this button + X and boom into the GUI I go!
Now Kiosk mode enables setting and deleting favorites? Is there a way to turn this back on my end? I searched the forum for discussions, but only found this old one. I have ES in Kiosk mode and the favorites button still add/removes favorites. Any suggestions?
@njweb Win32DiskImager is perfect for backing up your Pi. Most people on here use it, and I've made about 10 copies of my SD cards over the years when building and testing new things out in various projects.
I'd highly recommend ditching whatever image came with your Pi though and starting with the base Retropie from the site. If you run into more problems and ask for help here it wont be supported, plus nobody will know what has been done to the image before it was sold to you to try and help you if we can.
If you are happy with tinkering and exploring things for yourself though, you wont be disappointed with starting from the image on this site and making it your own!
Good point, thanks. Just concerned with potential compatibility issues with EmulationStation and installed emulators, settings etc. if I upgrade Retropie (will look up steps again).
@joneill I don't know any other GUI except the Emulationstation frontend.
Are you referring to the RetroPie-Setup text GUI - accesible from the RetroPie system, running RetroPie-Setup ? It's used for configuration/updates/installations, but it's not the default GUI shown when the system boots up, it's only used when needed.
@jdrassa I did an entire update to all even a kernel update to see if that would help out, but I'll have to check the build number to be positive. Also, I have the Kids Emulation Station build enabled as a safety measure. I don't know if that may have something to do with it.
