Configure two buttons as the select button?



  • I'm building a custom cabinet and I have a joystick\button kit with a COIN button. I'd like for that to actually work and still have a standard select button for each player. Because SELECT is the default "add coin" option, I'd like to also map the COIN button to select.

    I accept that the coin button would also be another select button, it would be there for mostly aesthetics and a very specific function; HOTKEY button + COIN button = add credit.

    Can I modify the /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg file and add two button numbers (comma separated) like:
    input_player1_select_btn = 8, 12

    Is there any way to do this?

    Thanks,
    Jason



  • @jason no, but just run another set of wires to the coin buttons such that when you press either SELECT or COIN, it triggers the input.



  • @caver01, Thanks for the idea! I'll give that try.
