Hotkey does not work for all console games
Hi! my hotkey is not working properly anymore for all emulators and i cant exit a game or even start playing some games. the only emulator i know for sure that the hotkey is working is nintendo 64. for example when i enter playstation emulator and i want to play medal of honor i cant even enter the game even though all my buttons work and if i try to exit the game via hotkey it doesent work. i have tried some fixes here but nothing seem to work. I should also mention that i have recently updated my retro pie but i dont know which version it is.
Pi Model or other hardware: (Raspberry Pi 3 model B+)( Raspberry pi 2017)
Power Supply used: plugged into a 230 VAC socket
RetroPie Version Used ( 4.6)
Built From: (Pre made SD Image on RetroPie website)
Controller used: ps3 controller (original)
Emulator: Playstaion 1
You can re-configure your gamepad again in EmulationStation, just like in the beginning, and the input configuration (including the hotkey) should be re-configured.
@mitu hi, i tried that a few times and i can still only exit and use my hotkey on nintendo 64. is there anything else i can try and do or should do?
@flamme99 Post a verbose log of the game running - see https://retropie.org.uk/docs/Runcommand/#launch-with-verbose-logging.
@mitu I have stumbled upon another issue now with the controller now which i unfortunately have to deal with before i take on this hotkey issue i have but i tried to launch the game with verbose logging before the other issues came into the picture and i couldnt find the log file which is located in /dev/shm/runcommand.log
Maybe i am doing something wrong?
Or, without enabling SSH, you can just copy it after launching the game by exiting EmulationStation and running from the command line:
cp /dev/shm/runcomand.log $HOME/RetroPie/roms
You can then see the
.logfile over file shares, in the
@mitu I cant seem to get verbose logging going and im trying to do it with a keyboard cause thats the only way for me to start a game in the ps1 emulation. I tried to do it with a keyboard aswell but it doesent work as hotkey isnt working for it either. so there is no way for me to exit the emulationstation (i think). ever since i updated my RetroPie i have had this problem with the hotkey, and i recently updated it again since i did it the last time a few weeks ago.
@flamme99 Did you modify your
retroarch.cfgfile or used
Save Configurationfrom the RetroArch's RGUI at some point ?
@mitu I believe i have done so and i think i have modified the cfg cause i remember that i checked it a few weeks ago. No idea what i have changed or modified though. I dont think i have used the save configuration from RetroArch's RGUI. I cant remember that i have.
@flamme99 If you modified the
retroarch.cfgfile, then you can save/backup your current file and overwrite it with the default file,
retroarch.cfg.rp-dist, this should eliminate any issues caused by modifications. Do you have the default file present ?
@mitu Yes i have the default file present.
