I used this tutorial to add arcade controls to my pi:
I have everything running in emulationstation, but still have to utilize a keyboard for the escape key. I’d like to map this to a button, or two buttons pressed together, like start and select at the same time. Can anyone please explain how to accomplish this?

Are you using retroarch (i.e. NES, SNES, Genesis, Atari,…) emulators ?
If yo you need to edit your retroarch.cfg file in /opt/retropie/configs/all.
You need to map a button for the hotkey, i.e. you will have to press this first to trigger the special key mode such as exit, save state and load state.
input_enable_hotkey_btn = your joypad key
then you need to map the actual escape button
There are many posts on this in the forummonkey-tamerParticipant09/16/2014 at 00:59Post count: 5
Thanks. That pointed me in the right direction. Got it working now. I was using the wrong search terms.monkey-tamerParticipant09/17/2014 at 05:25Post count: 5
Works for nes, snes, etc. For some reason it doesn’t work in MAME. I have those buttons set as coin and start in that program. Maybe I need another button to assign coin.ArnaudGuest09/17/2014 at 14:05Post count: 908
Hi, I’m glad it worked for you.
For Mame it’s normal, it doens’t come under the retroarch umbrella. If you use Mame4All you press the TAb key and a menu pops up where you can assign a key. However, there is no “hotkey” therefore you need to use a specific button to exit the emulator that won’t be used for anything else.vasilisrkParticipant10/01/2014 at 10:13Post count: 14
I have a little problem and i can’t fix it but it seems soooo easy:
in mame menu (tab) i set by mistake the select button to ‘none’. How can i reset it?FloobMember10/02/2014 at 16:32Post count: 1629
You can click ‘Enter’ and it should ask you to re-enter the key(s) that you want to use. Basic guide is here:vasilisrkParticipant10/02/2014 at 18:30Post count: 14
Hi, tanks for your reply but my problem is that I set the enter button to none, so I can’t enter the menu…. I can press tab, opens the menu and I can’t go fartherFloobMember10/02/2014 at 19:31Post count: 1629
Maybe you could try deleting this file?
Or try using mine (in the zip)?
I think thats the one that stored the data for keys.
