    I am having issues with this. I am able to follow the steps up until entering su and password. When I enter su it prompts for a password. I try raspberry but it fails to Authenticate. A little research shows a command to set root password. I can access root but get an error when trying to install npm. Any Suggestions. I have tried this with several various builds including the latest RetroPie3.2.1. Below is what I get. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    pi@retropie ~ $ su
    Password:
    su: Authentication failure
    pi@retropie ~ $ sudo passwd root
    Enter new UNIX password:
    Retype new UNIX password:
    passwd: password updated successfully
    pi@retropie ~ $ su
    Password:
    root@retropie:/home/pi# git clone https://github.com/miroof/node-virtual-gamepads

    I can confirm this. I have not been able to find any settings in this RasPlex build to get this working with my wifi dongle. The RetroPie 3.0 build works fine with my wifi dongle and had an easy configuration in settings. Any help would be great!

    What I do with my arcade machine setup is boot from USB. Then I have 2 USB keys with different ROMs and Settings. I just plug in the one I want to use or my kids use. Then if they are in trouble, I take the USB key away. LoL. I keep a copy of the USB on a storage drive and if they mess it up it only takes 5 min to fix. I have a 5 and 8 year old and they have only broken it once in 3 months. I recommend using RetroPie 2.6 for the kids as it doesn’t show as many graphical settings.

    Can I load my own version of RetroPie or is your specific to use this? Were there ALOT of config changes for this to work with Rasplex?

    I use Plex as my Media Server and would love the ability to run RasPlex from EmulationStation. I too tried berryboot to dual boot my Pi2 but ran into tons of errors. if anyone has made any progress with this I’d love to know.

    I was able to get Hotkeys working with my GPIO Controls acting as keyboard.

    cd /opt/retropie/configs/all $ sudo nano retroarch.cfg

    input_player1_l = “l”
    input_player1_r = “r”
    input_hold_fast_forward = “nul”
    input_rewind = “nul”

    input_enable_hotkey = “v”

    input_load_state = “l”
    input_save_state = “r”

    I added the above code. By default the l and r were used for FastForward and Rewind. So making them nul and adding the hotkey command to v which is what one of my buttons maps to enabled that. The only thing that it affected that I wasn’t expecting was the button I had mapped as Esc no longer worked without the Hotkey being used. Other than that, works like a boss! Hope it helps.

    I am trying to do the same thing. I have built an arcade style controller with a joystick and buttons mapped to the GPIO pins. They act as keyboard keys and work great while playing roms. I just havent figured out how to map hotkeys with the keyboard. Hopefully someone else has done it and can help.
