swapping A and B in emulation station

Post by RetroJack » Sat 8 Sep 2018 17:23

Is there a simple way of swapping A and B buttons from the default?
At the moment B is "select" and A is "back".

I'm not sure why it was setup that way, but if you press start, configure gamepad, and reinput for the Retrostone, you can swap them.

In fact, the UI says that A (accept) is the 'east' button and B (cancel) the 'south' button. Not sure why the stock config with the Retrorange Pi has them reversed.

yeah, perhaps Pierre can pass on a correction to the RetroOrangePi folk

I hate that controller config thing. there must be a file i can edit?

I remapped my retrostone dpad, but now I can't escape from a game by pressing the start and select buttons together. Any ideas on how to get that back?

Edit: never mind, it started working again
