Am hoping for some help here. So I have my Pi set up to use EmulationStation and RetroPie. I had some issues getting PSX and Megadrive games to work, but now that's sorted thanks to help from this forum.
I have a couple of new issues now.
Firstly I have a PS2 controller that I have setup, and mapped keys for using the 'retroarch-joyconfig -o /RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg' command.
That didn't seem to make any difference to what was in the retroarch.cfg file so I manually entered the following:
All of the keys work on their assigned buttons and the left thumbsticks work too, however they seem to me that if I lightly push it on one direction its like it goes fully that direction. Is there something alternative I can enter that will give me more responsive thumbsticks, and also make use of the right thumbstick.input_player1_joypad_index = "0"
input_player1_a_btn = "1"
input_player1_b_btn = "2"
input_player1_x_btn = "0"
input_player1_y_btn = "3"
input_player1_l_btn = "6"
input_player1_r_btn = "7"
input_player1_l2_btn = "4"
input_player1_r2_btn = "5"
input_player1_l3_btn = "10"
input_player1_r3_btn = "11"
input_player1_start_btn = "9"
input_player1_select_btn = "8"
input_player1_left_btn = "12"
input_player1_up_btn = "13"
input_player1_right_btn = "14"
input_player1_down_btn = "15"
input_player1_left_axis = "-0"
input_player1_up_axis = "-1"
input_player1_right_axis = "+0"
input_player1_down_axis = "+1"
Second issue is since getting Megadrive working using DGEN, this seems to use a completely differnet configuration file for the controller. It generated a file called dgenrc. The contents of which is below.
I'm having issues trying to work out which buttons should be associated to using the [email protected] controller. I also am trying to work out a way to exit the emulator using the controller. Firstly I tried adding the linesjoy_pad1_a = joystick0-button1
joy_pad1_b = joystick0-button2
joy_pad1_c = joystick0-button0
joy_pad1_x = joystick0-button3
joy_pad1_y = joystick0-button6
joy_pad1_z = joystick0-button7
joy_pad1_mode = joystick0-button8
joy_pad1_start = joystick0-button9
joypad1_b8 = key_quit
joy_pad2_a = joystick1-button0
joy_pad2_b = joystick1-button3
joy_pad2_c = joystick1-button1
joy_pad2_x = joystick1-button6
joy_pad2_y = joystick1-button4
joy_pad2_z = joystick1-button5
joy_pad2_mode = joystick1-button9
joy_pad2_start = joystick1-button8
like i did in retroarch.cfg, but this had no effect.input_enable_hotkey_btn = "8"
input_exit_emulator_btn = "9"
After some searching I found I could potentially use the line
But this doesn't seem to work either so any help on configuring this would be greatly appreciated.input_exit_emulator = input_player1_l_btn
And my final question is in regards to The Sega Master System and Gamegear emulators in RetroPie, and exiting them. As I mentioned in the retroarch.cfg file under RetroPie/configs/all I have the lines:
This doesn't seem to make a difference. As such I added these lines to the retroarch.cfg file in the individual configs for the 2 different systems but still no luck. Any ideas on what I might be doing wrong?input_enable_hotkey_btn = "8"
input_exit_emulator_btn = "9"
