[RetroPie x64] many many questions from beginners



  • @mitu
    ehm... No I was speaking about Retropie on Raspberry (not Recalbox). Menu doesnt seem to be the same as X64 Menu, cause I saw (dont remember where) there were a menu to change it in French :D
    Well... no problem.
    There is something i can't find and i'm not sure you replied.
    Question 4: Is there a way to modify Joypad settings for:

    1. Only one Emulator (like Megadrive for example)?
    2. Only one game?

    Cause link you gave me (/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch-joypads) is for all.

    TIA

    Yes, take a look at https://retropie.org.uk/docs/RetroArch-Configuration/#config-hierarchy. You can do those changes from RetroArch itself, by starting the RGUI (Select + X), making the required changes to the input, then choosing to save the re-mapping for Core/Game - https://retropie.org.uk/docs/RetroArch-Configuration/#config-hierarchy.

    As I said, there is no support for other languages in the Emulationstation included in RetroPie, no matter the platform. Note that Recalbox uses their own forked version of Emulationstation, with support for foreign languages, so you might have seen screenshots from Recalbox.



  • @mitu Hello
    Thank you again for your replies.
    You probably right, it was a own forked version of EmulationStation.

    Well.. I read the link you gave me. But I dont understand. I'm probably stupid, sorry.
    Here what I did :

    • I configured all my differents pads (XOne Elite, XOne, X360 and Razer XOne). I backuped these files.
      All these files are in /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch-joypads
      So these .cfg files will be use for all emulators and all games...
      For Megadrive roms (all of them) I wanted to switch B button with Y button.
      For Mame roms (all of them) Iwanted to switch A button with Y button

    So I think I can copy my "Microsoft X-Box 360 pad.cfg" (I will do for all "pads.cfg"), then I edit it, I replace buttons values as i want to switch B with Y for example. Then i dont understand what i have to do with this new file?
    Do I have to copy it in /opt/retropie/configs/megadrive ?
    I'm not sure cause if i read the tutorial, I have to copy retroarch.cfg in megadrive not the pads.cfg... and how to say to the system that it should use this pad.cfg...
    Sorry i really don't understand

    @xboxwin You don't need to fiddle with configuration files, as I said you can do this from the RetroArch GUI.
    Start a Megadrive ROM, then press Select + X on the gamepad (or Hotkey + X if you selected a different button as the Hotkey for that gamepad). This should bring up the RGUI (RetroArch Gui). Go to Controls, where you assign the buttons on your gamepad to the emulators' buttons - i.e. User 1 B can be your Y button and User 1 Y can be your B button. After you do this, scroll up and choose Save Core Remap File and you're done.
    Next time you'll start a Megadrive ROM, the new mapping will be applied.
    You can do the same for MAME, as long as the emulator you're using is a RetroArch core (lr-mame2003, lr-fbalpha, any lr-xyz emulator).



  • @mitu ehm ok. I think i already did this.
    I pressed RT on my pad. I got a menu with Input (General), input (this game), etc...
    I choose input this game.. and try to change button but after that button doesnt work anymore.
    And if I press Hotkey + X or Select + X, nothing happens

    EDIT; Ok. I got your menu. Same as in Recalbox... :D


  • Global Moderator

    @xboxwin That sounds like a Mame menu, are you getting this menu when running a Megadrive Rom or on an Arcade game ? What emulator are you running ?



  • @mitu yes. It's ok. I edited my previous post. I got the menu. It's the same as in Recalbox. So i know it cause i have a Recalbox installed on Raspberry too. But here i'm on a PC with RetroPie
    I try and come back if needed.
    Thank you :D



  • @mitu I got the menu but I can't navigate in. I tried to press arrows from pad, joystick, arrows from keyboard.... I can't move to the control option... and my pad works well in gale and for all.


  • Global Moderator

    @xboxwin The menu navigation should work with the D-pad.



  • @mitu it should :D but doesn't :/


  • Global Moderator

    @xboxwin Maybe because the keyboard is the 1st gamepad. Can you disconnect the keyboard while in Emulationstation, then use the gamepad only to start a ROM and enter the RGUI ?



  • @mitu it's a Laptop. I can't disconnect keyboard. I can navigate with pad... and try Guantlet with 4 players and 4 gamepads.. and all works.
    I dont understand why I can't move in this menu

    EDIT: Ok. I found. it's the mouse :D By using the wheels I can go to control options :D
    I try...

    Thank you again of course :D



  • @mitu sorry again.
    So ok... I can swap button as wanted but. I can't swap D-Pad with Joystick.
    Is there a way to do that except by changing setup in General Menu from Retropie?
    Cause if i do that, for PSP game or PSX game I will have to use D-Pad. And it will not be good :D

    EDIT: I think I found. I have to change Analog to Digital and choose Left Analog... Right?

    Yes, that's it.
