I used to launch a game and the screen would go black. or show a loading screen if enabled for a few seconds then along the bottom I would see in yellow text that the emulator was loading the config files and the rom would play. After the splash screen if I pressed "a" button on any of the joysticks a menu option would pop up allowing me to select what emulator to use. I am no longer able to get into that menu when I press any button on my joysticks unless I have menu enabled on launch in the runcommand options and then an ugly window pops up each time I start a rom and doesn't go away unless I plug in a keyboard and press esc. The joystick buttons don't seem to register to bring up the menu anymore or allow me to enter/esc. if it's enabled on launch.
I don't want to see the startup menu each time I start a game but I want to be able to access it still by pressing a button before the rom loads. I had it functioning like this when I had video loading screens but in the process of turning them off seem to have messed up the menu trigger function.
Can someone please tell me what file/config I need to edit in order to return to how I had it setup. I don't wanna revert to an old image and loose 40gb of custom games/settings. thank you in advance. I have tried re-enabling the video loading screens but have the same result. no menu at all, or a popup window I can't get past unless I unplug one of the joysticks and plug in a keyboard. Any advice is appreciated.

@cyperghost I am curious what line you read in the OP's text that leads you to believe that. He said '40GB of custom games/settings', but I think he means that he has put a lot of work into his current setup and wants to fix it without starting all over again.
