  • Hey guys, let me start by saying I'm new to this. I have a canakit raspberry pi 3 b set up to a computer monitor and 2 players each with a joystick and 6 button controller, plus start and select buttons and running retropie 4.5. I have it all configured to work properly, except for certain games. I'm trying to run mortal kombat and similar fighting games but I can't get the controls set up to fight properly. I can get into the controller configure screen by pressing select + x but that all looks like jibberish to me. Can anyone direct me on what means what in that screen? Thanks!

    See this part from the docs explaining how to remap controls per game/core.


  • @mitu I understand that part and have tried that. The issue I'm having is what button does what once I'm in to configure them,this screen.nta3mzc0nmml.png

    @randallwoodworks On the right you have the SNES (virtual) controller buttons, on the left you have the Gamepad/Keyboard inputs. Your screenshot shows the SNES core mapping, so it might be different for arcade games, because each cabinet might have a different set of buttons.
