(Rpi) Retropie PS4 buttons



  • Hello!

    My device is a Raspberry Pi 4 (4 GB) and everything was working fine until now. I'm using a PS4 gamepad, and before I updated cheats and other things in the rui interface I could use the PS-button + Start to quit the emulator and go back to the menu of Emulationstation. And the PS-button + triangle took me to the menu of Retroarch.

    Anyway, now when I press the PS-button it only takes me to the Retroarch menu. Where can I set the button combinations as it was before?

    You probably have downloaded the gamepad auto-configuration profiles from the RetroArch repository, including the one for your gamepad, and they overwritten the configuration RetroPie generated for your PS4 gamepad.
    Re-configure your gamepad again in EmulationStation, this should re-create the RetroArch gamepad profile and add the hotkeys back.



  • @mitu Thank you for your reply. I did what you told me, but unfortunately the problem remains.

    @Doink Check the \\retropie\configs\all\\retroarch\autoconfig folder - what files do you have there ?



  • @mitu
    .travis.yml
    COPYING
    Makefile
    README.md
    Sony Computer Entertainment Wireless Controller.cfg (also a bak-file with the same name)
    Sony PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller.cfg (also a bak file)
    Wireless Controller.cfg (also a bak file)
    Configure

    Delete everything from the folder (including sub-folders), except the .cfg files. Start RetroArch again - with a game - and see if your configuration profile works again.



  • @mitu Yes, that solved everything. Thank you kindly for your time and help. I appreciate it a lot.
