Change hotkey script and hiscores data locations



  • Hey there-
    My retropie and home Arcade cab have been working great for 6 months- I'm just doing some maintenance adding a new button and I've forgotten the locations to change the config txt... if anyone could be so kind to remind me?

    I'm accessing via file explorer over the network... I'm trying to change the hotkey to keybind H. (Its player 2 select currently)

    Also a secondary problem is my high scores don't save on exit so does anyone have a filename and location for the high scores file and any advice on that.

    Thank you all kindly- this isn't my strong area!



  • After running the update my high scores now save ok.

    Im stilll have no luck changing the hotkey from "num6" to "h"
    If I edit it with notpad++ it looks right but no changes to how it functions.
    Also ive tried to change in ES controller config. When I get to the hotkey input at the end- I press my new button and get a key h input from the ipac2... still doesn't seem to actually change the hot key.
    I have game and core remap files for tons of games if this matters. Can anyone help me?
