Configure specific controller gamepad in retroarch.cfg



  • I am trying to map Gamepad1 button 11 to input_exit_emulator_btn setting and Gamepad2 button 11 to input_pause_toggle_btn in retroarch.cfg:

    input_exit_emulator_btn = "11"
    input_pause_toggle_btn = "11"

    The input_exit_emulator_btn setting works great. But now when I add the pause toggle how can I specify that button 11 on the second controller should trigger the pause action?

    Is there a way to specify which controllers / gamepads button 11 should be used?

    Any ideas on how to achieve this would be greatly appreciated. I do not want to have a keyboard permanently attached to my arcade box.

    I am running RetroPie 4.4.1 on a RaspberryPi 3 B+. The controller cards are DragonRise Inc Generic USB.
