Just wanted to drop a line that I’m still working on this. Your .pdf helped a lot.
* I did a completely new install of RetroPie from the SD Card Image v2.3.
* I followed the LifeHacker Article steps 1 and 2.
* Then I ssh’d in and changed /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg to follow your keymap charting exactly like this:
1. Modify the following lines: input_player1_a = z input_player1_b = shift input_player1_y = ctrl input_player1_x = alt input_player1_start = num5 input_player1_select = c input_player1_l = space input_player1_r = x input_player1_left = keypad4 input_player1_right = keypad6 input_player1_up = keypad8 input_player1_down = keypad2 2. Add the following lines: input_player2_a = e input_player2_b = w input_player2_y = a input_player2_x = s input_player2_start = num6 input_player2_select = rightbracket input_player2_l = q input_player2_r = leftbracket input_player2_left = d input_player2_right = g input_player2_up = r input_player2_down = f
And that was it.
I did not install or enable the xarcadetojoystick code. Just changed retroarch.cfg and rebooted.
Following reboot Atari 2600 worked exactly right. I launched Gauntlet in MAME and it almost all worked except for Player 1’s joystick was not working.
I ran out of time there. But this week I will be revisiting this and trying games from all the systems I have. I’ll report back here when I have my findings.
thank you a ton for posting your notes,
