I’m setting up the Inputs for Retroarch, and have things working really well on my old arcade cabinet using snes9x_libretro.so under Linux. Whoo hoo!
My one issue at the moment is that I’m trying to map a button from a secondary joystick encoder.
My cabinet looks like this:
I’m using it’s controllers, as opposed to a dpad type controller. It has two joystick encoders, one for each player in the control panel.
I’m trying to map the controls like this:
Note how the Player 1 start button is on the right side, which is connected to a different joystick encoder than all the other player 1 controls. When I’m mapping the controls for Player 1 through the Retroarch gui it doesn’t detect my button presses on that joystick encoder. So I can’t map P1 start.
Is there a way to tell it to use the input from a different joystick encoder?
I could conceivably re-wire that button so it uses the main joytsick encoder, but that would require remapping the controls in all my other emulators, which I’d rather not do if avoidable.
And by the way I don’t have much experience with SNES, so also let me know if my button mappings don’t look right to you. And I’d like to use Retroarch for a few other systems (Nestopia, Atari ST, maybe others) so any advice for setting up the inputs in a way that works for all is definitely invited.
Thanks for any advice.
