Log found in /dev/shm/runcommand.log (if relevant):
I built a Pimoroni Picade with my son. After some adventures, we got it work and have been having fun. But a friend came over, monkeyed around with some controls, and now the START button doesn't work once I have launched a game (for example, Dig Dug).
I have of course tried to configure this in EmulationStation--many times. FWIW I have usually set the Hotkey to be SELECT. Not that it seems to make any difference. Once I have launched a game, I cannot start it (but can add as many quarters as I like!).
I ran evtest from the command line and can see that all my buttons are indeed connected to the system. My START button appears to be configured as KEY_0 (code 24)
Any suggestions much appreciated
On what system are you experiencing this ? It may be your friend remapped the buttons, so check the
Hmm. When I launch the game (Dig Dug) it briefly states lr-mame2003. Is that what you mean by "system"?
I checked the configs dir. On my system it is located at /opt/retropie/configs. I don't see anything specifically for lr-mame2003. I don't see any .remap files around here.
Is that what you mean by "system"?
The folder where the ROM is located - arcade, mame-libretro, nes, snes, etc.
looks like arcade/mame2003/hi/digdug.hi
\\retropie\configs\arcadefolder - what files are in that folder ?
@mitu I don't know how to copy that here... but I see roughly:
Strange, that shouldn't be there. Can you post the
retroarch.cfgfile's contents on pastebin.com ?

sorry, I'm too dense to figure out posting to pastebin.
retroarch.cfg contents looks like this:
input_remappong_directory = "/opt/retropie/configs/arcade"
@lydgate That should be ok, I was thinking your friend used the 'Save Configuration' menu option in RetroArch and overwrote the config.
Try to delete the MAME input config file (
default.cfg) from the
arcade/mame2003/cfg/folder and see if this solves the problem.
It worked! Unbelievable. That is absolutely amazing. Thank you, @mitu !
