I am not sure about restarting the Pi (that is something outside the RetroPie capabilities) but if you dig into the RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg file (or the specific ones for the different systems), you can define buttons for the other functions. A very useful option is to set up a shortcut for the RetroArch menu, that serves to most of your needs.
You can also map hotkeys on you joy for all these functions too.
Thanks. I added the following and it works from within most emulators. Dev, could you shed any light as to why it won’t work from the Commodore 64, MAME4All, Atari ST…? Is there something overriding them?
I have the Xbox 360 controllers. This means I press the left joystick button down, then press Y to exit to the EmulationStation menu.
Regarding the emulators that do not respond to hotkeys: some of the emulators in RetroPie do not use the RetroArch configurations, but exclusive config files (e.g. DGen, Osmose). You will need to check online or in the forums how to customize said emulators, or choose a different one from RetroPie to use with the specific systems you want to emulate.
Second, I don’t think there is any use in setting such shortcuts by default, as the identities of buttons depend on the controllers you are using. It is easy enough to set up your own combinations in the cfg file.
