my two cents. Work on ARKOS which uses full version of Retroach...
Hi all, I tried many ways to Save and have persistent HotKey binds. AN dthe only way I was able to get it persistent, even after retroarch reboots and new confirg saves, over rides is to add the values on the retroarch.cfg. and for good measure I also pasted my values in CORE and Folder Remaps and core cfg. IE NES.cfg and Nestopia.cfg (remaps on like nes.rmp) I think that last part is overkill,, but I tried everithing and this is now working so overkill made it.
here are my confiig for my Ambernic rg351p running ARKOS?
@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!
@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.
