How to disable Retroarch hotkeys for keyboard?
How can I disable those retroarch hotkey commands like slowmotion, shader options, movie record, so that when I'm typing on the keyboard it won't start these commands?
There's a pretty nice one line fix for this, but it isn't really a full disable, but merely disabling single press hotkeys. So to use them you'd have to use it in combination with an enabling key, like how the controller hotkeys work.
Just find the line with
/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfgand set it to a key. After that no hotkeys should work on a single press, and if you do happen to want to use them, you still can. Otherwise if you are dead set on no hotkey functionality, you'll have to go through
retroarch.cfgand set all the hotkey functions to 'nul'.
Thanks but it's no difference setting input_enable_hotkey = "nul" and all each others to "nul".
I also tried removing this line completely from retroarch.cfg. As soon I press space on the keyboard, the emu speeds up, so the hotkeys stay enabled.
You set input_toggle_fast_forward to 'nul' in your main retroarch.cfg and it still responded? I'll have to play around with it to figure it out better then.
Edit: I tried it out and it works as intended for me. Perhaps your problem could be some game or system specific retroarch config overriding your global changes.
Ah cool. Will check it out, thanks.
