INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gw38OqigS8o&t=140s
For a proper distribution in the buttons for the 6 button mode,
Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter games were taken as main example.

For MORTAL KOMBAT games overlay controller mapping is:

  •  X and A are set for High and Low Punch,
  •  Y and B are for Run and Block,
  •  Z and C are High and Low Kick

For STREET FIGHTER games overlay controller mapping is:

  •  X Y Z are light, medium and hard punch
  •  A B C are light, medium and hard kick

RETROARCH BUTTON INPUT CONFIGURATION
For the defaults 3 button configuration, recommended mapping should be

  • Overlay A button should be Retroarch Y button
  • Overlay B button should be Retroarch B button
  • Overlay C button should be Retroarch A button


RECOMMENDED SETTINGS FOR THE 6 BUTTON MODE
- First set your controller in the main input settings, to match your game pad:
  SETTINGS \ INPUT \ PORT 1 CONTROLS

- LOAD ANY 6 BUTTON GAME
 Open the main menu
 quick menu \ controls \ port 1
 
Step in the each button and press left/right to change options
 set the buttons like this:

  •  A BUTTON  = C
  •  B BUTTON  = A
  •  X BUTTON  = Z
  •  Y BUTTON = X
  •  L BUTTON = Y
  •  R BUTTON = B

- GO BACK (press backspace on the keyboard )
 MANAGE REMAP FILES \ SAVE GAME REMAP FILES
(this way  input mapping should be done for each 6 button game)

-  OR
Store your 6 button roms in a dedicated folder
and instead choose: SAVE CONTENT DIRECTORY REMAP FILE
( THIS WAY YOU DONT HAVE TO DO THIS FOR EVERY GAME )
