@lostless well I'm not really concerned with who is P1 and P2 on EmulationStation. I'm concerned with trying to get one controller to map inputs. I know on an emulator's RGUI I can set P1 and P2 controls by navigating the menu with a separate controller, but sometimes it acts weird and I'll have to switch between 4 separate controllers to get it working. Choosing which controller is P1/P2 on the RGUI is easy until the controls decide to act up and get split up between 3 or 4 different controllers.
@mitu when it detects the keyboard at startup with the configuration pop up. I had a controller connected up then connected up the usb reciever to use with keyboard and no buttons worked to navigate the RP screens other than the controller.
the thing is, if I put in a sd card with raspbian, the keyboard works just fine. also I dont have another hub.
however, because for some reason it will work when im exited from emulationstation, i can use the terminal. the reason why I even am trying to use the keyboard is so i can set up a controller to work, (a rock candy xbox one controller wired) so is there a way I can set up the controller, then just unplug the keyboard and use the controller from then on?
@edmaul69 I also remember some titles expect you to type the number of the FDD where you have the disk inserted. Back in the day, I had two floppy drives which made multi-disk access so much easier (think PrintShop Companion, or Newsroom).
