Swap A/B button in EmulationStation
sorry for a new post asking help but I'm really going crazy :)
I have a Raspberry Pi Zero
Latest Vice emulator
Sandisk Ultra Imaging Micro SDHC I 32GB Class (10)
First installation of retropie 4-5 days ago i have browsed all config menu to try all setting, after checked lot of setting/configs i have decide to fomatt sd and prepared with a clead img of retropie.
Browsing in all menu, i don't remember where i found an option like "Swap A and B button (must reconfigure joypad)" or something like that, now after 4 days of setup of all retropie (and it works almost everything) i can't find this option to swap a and b button (referred to as A=yes/confirm - and B=no/back).
Can someone help me?
Thanks a lot
You're looking for
es_swap_a_b = 1found in
that's something and can help me however i would like find the menu option to do the same, if not i will edit autoconf.cgf as you suggest.

In the Retropie setup script, you can use the following:
Manage core packages>
Swap A/B Buttons in ES
@dudleydes Yes!!! It's this one, a little hidden in Retropie Setup, now i'm at work but this evening i will try, thanks!
@dudleydes I confirm that it worked, thanks again!

Does this effect the buttons on the scripts? In ES and RA, the A button is select and B is back, but when I go into retropie-config or any of those text menus, I have to move to the cancel or select buttons and hit B for it to choose that option. I want A to be select across the board. I am using an original XBox wired USB controller.

There's a separate setting inside the Retroarch GUI, under Settings/Input "Menu Swap Ok & Cancel Buttons".
EDIT: Sorry I now see you are referring to the RetroPie setup menu. This happens when I configure my XBOX wireless controller. so when I configure my controller in EmulationStation I use the actual A & B Buttons rather than the Official method of following the Nintendo button map which has the A&B, X&Y switched, Then I go in and manually configure the RetroArch configs.
This allows me to have the proper X & Y Buttons for favorites and Random game inside Emulation Station and the proper buttons configured for the RetroPie Setup menu.

This post was very helpful, but no matter what I try, the RetroPie main menus are all okay w.r.t. A/B buttons but in most games the A/B buttons are still reversed. So how do I have the best of both -- RetroPie menus with A/B like I want and also the games following same orientation?
@AEtherScythe configure A and B reversed in emulationstation in the input configuration (but switch the a/b es setting back first).
Best to start a new topic than adding to a 2 year old one in general.
