Switching between arcade and gamecube controls



  • I has recently made a retropie gaming table and have set up two player controls using arcade buttons, everything is working well. I also wanted to add in gamecube gamepads for some of the more recent games that require more controls.
    Q1 - Can i plug some of the mayflash type adapters into one of the ports and have this work in tandem for certain games.
    Q2 - How would i set it up so that the control type could be switched for different games.
    Cheers

    Yes, sure.

    You can use the joystick selection tool created by @meleu [1] or look in the RetroArch configuration editor and switch the player mapping (i.e. P1 would be the GC controller for a certain system).
