Rare? Hotkey Issue on Windows 10 Retroarch PC -



I’ve been searching for a solution for months so please redirect me if there’s already an open thread for this.

I’m running latest Retroarch on PC w/ windows 10. Issue is when I load a game, regardless of core/platform, I’m able to execute hotkey commands once, maybe twice before the hotkeys become unresponsive during each session. I’m using SF30 Pro and I use ‘select’ as enable hotkey. The only workaround I’ve found is the RGUI option to use a button combo to open the menu, in this case L3 + R3, but its becoming a pain in the ass having to do that every time the hotkey stops working. Start + Select to exit still works oddly, just can’t do anything else when it craps out. Again this happens per session, so hotkeys work at the beginning then stop. Hopefully all that makes sense, let me know if I need to elaborate.



I actually created an account to try to further this discussion. I’ve been having the same issue with RetroArch on Windows 10.

What I’ve noticed is that it only stops responding when I use the Menu toggle hotkey to close the RetroArch menu. If I close the RetroArch Menu by selecting “Resume”, everything works just fine. But once I hit the Hotkey for opening/closing the menu, RetroArch stops responding to all hotkeys (although the game still plays just fine).

So it’s easy to recreate the bug, but I have no idea how to fix it, outside of remembering to manually close the RetroArch menu.
