One joystick playing 2 player games

  • Hello,
    I have an arcade cabinet with one joystick and three buttons. There are many 2 player games from back in the day which alternate players using this basic scheme. My question is instead of buying another dragonrise encoder can I just tell Emulationstation to see the same USB device as both one and two player? Currently the roms cannot be played with two players because I can't configure the 2-player start button to work on what are technically the 1-player controls.
