Retro pie (not menu) freezes when buttons are pressed

Mon Mar 21, 2016 4:04 am

I am trying to make a retro pie system using my tft display. Now I don't know if using the tft display is relevant to the problem.
I downloaded the pocket pigrrl img from adafruit so it would work on my screen. https://learn.adafruit.com/pocket-pigrrl/software-1
The menu worked fine (except for there being no theme and the retro pie settings menu was missing :? ) and I uploaded some roms and was going to test out some games. So I started playing a game and the game intro played fine and it seemed normal but when I pressed a button, any button, it would freeze and not work. So I had to click esc to exit the game. Note: I am currently just using a keyboard as my controller. I am using a Rpi 1 B+. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me. :)

Does anybody know what is going on here? Is the rpi 1 b+ no capable enough? Do you not understand something I said? If you don't understand something please let me know so I can better explain myself.

Okay I figured it out... sorta
The thing is, is that I changed the keyboard layout in the retro pie menu but for some reason that layout didn't carry over into the games. So it only works for the menu. So if someone knows how to change it for in the game I would appreciate it if you could tell me how to change it. The freezing screen part I am still not sure on. The key that I had set for A button was k and whenever I pressed the k key it just froze. When I use the layout that was default I have no freezing issue.
