Re: Maldita Castilla and JOY2KEY

I've not had any luck getting joy2key to work on the pi and I find it far too arcane to troubleshoot. I've been using Linux Joystick Mapper to emulate the mouse in DOS games. I put together a tutorial a while ago at the RetroPie forum to get the mapper set up and running. The documentation for the a...

Re: NES RBI Baseball Select doesn't work

There are a number of NES games that use the select button, in-game or in menus. Rather than create custom rom configs, I've decided to add input_player1_select_btn = "12" to the RetroArch NES config (at /opt/retropie/configs/nes/retroarch.cfg).

Re: NES RBI Baseball Select doesn't work

No, it's not a bug in RetroPie. I should have been more precise in earlier post. The select button is used to choose the number of players in the NES emulator as well as being the hotkey in RetroArch. The RetroArch config will override the emulator one so the select button does not work in the emula...

Re: NES RBI Baseball Select doesn't work

The problem arises because the Select key in RBI Baseball is used to select the number of players as well as being the hotkey in the emulator. The easiest way to get around this is to remap the Select key to another button. 1. Launch RBI Baseball from ES and before it loads, press any key or js0 to ...

Re: Configuring controls in Fuse

I'm afraid I don't know.

If you install ZEsarUX, a script, +Start ZEsarUX, will automatically be generated which, when run from ES, will launch to the boot screen. The default is 48k but this can be changed to 128k from the emulator menu or by editing the +Start ZEsarUX script.
