There is no response at all to the keyboard, I am not sure how it handles the Raspberry Pi400 built in keyboard. I would like to build a Bar top game system but I would like to search for the game in either the "ALL GAMES" section or my "FAVORITES" section. Also, I am undecided whether to go with a 6 button layout or a 8 button layout, and if I go with the 6 button layout, can I use those extra buttons for features like "LOAD/SAVE" Volume UP" "Volume Down" "ESC" ? Thanks for any help!!
You can add shortcuts to your gamelist that will start with an empty file, thus disabling the auto-loading. Some emulators already have a similar shortcut (+Start Amiberry, +Start Fuse), you can replicate the setup for others.
If you prefer working from the desktop, then you can leave RetroPie alone and just install the emulators manually on a Raspbian + Desktop image.
@mitu , I have a system set up with 4 controllers on my pi400 and would like to use the keyboard to search for the game that I would like to play, from the ALL GAMES list. Is there a way to do this ? I do not want to use the keyboard as a controller, only as a way to input for game selection. Thank you!!
