Title: Videopac Emulator on Raspberry Pi 3
Post by: tigerinatlanta on August 02, 2016, 04:50:40 PM
Does anyone use this? I can get certain games to work using a USB/SNES controller in Retropie.  However, certain games like UFO do not work at all. (No directional movement, or firing action?
Does anyone know how to remap the config or make it work.

Finally got this working for anyone who is interested doing this going forward.

Basically any game that uses Left Key Controls(Player 2) as the primary input needs to have an individual config file created to go with the accompanying .bin file.
An example of one of these games is UFO.

The file path for this is the same as where you put the roms:

/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/videopac
UFO.bin (This is the rom File)
UFO.bin.cfg (Manually created config file which has to match the bin file in syntax since Linux is case sensitive)

The lines of code to put in the .cfg file are as follows below:

------------------------------------------
input_player1_joypad_index = "1"
input_player2_joypad_index = "0"
input_enable_hotkey = "ctrl"

-------------------------------------------
You will also need to add the Hot Key to the existing retroarch.cfg file.
 /opt/retropie/configs/all

Add this line to the bottom of this file:
input_enable_hotkey = "ctrl"

=============

This will enable you to play using only 1 Joystick.
You will be able to exit by doing a "ESC" + "CTRL" after completing your game, and will exit back to the Videopac emulator.
