Retroarch / assign hotkey to D-pad


Recommended Posts

so this is a separate controller your using with it with a dpad? if so set a hot key with the controller also it will take an imput form the keyboard and controller. if you press the button that is equivalent to enter on the bartop and the d-pad at the same time  it isn't working?

no, nothing happens...

It is a keyboard encoder like i-pac2 (smartASD https://www.webasd.com/public/foto/ASD261D/ASD261D_Foto2.jpg) inside a bartop with joystick&buttons.

If I trying to remap d-pad like this:


User 1 up D-pad  --> keypad8 (↑)

User 1 down D-pad  --> keypad2 (↓)

User 1 left D-pad  --> keypad4 (←)

User 1 right D-pad  --> keypad6 (→)


directional keys does not work .. (only work by default) I can't remap d-pad :$

Currently, the only "solution" is to keep d-pad by default setting and assign hotkeys, not to directional keys, but at the others buttons/keys so I can save state (for example with combo ENTER + B button)

Do you have any idea to fix it?

No I'm not sure what to do I have a 2 joystick encoders in my bartop and I use my coin button as the hotkey and when I hold that button and press the 5 button it save and 6 button loads. All of my button combos works maybe some one with keyboard encoders may be able to help.

I have two digital joysticks but the problem also occurs using a normal keyboard O.o Can you remap the keys as below?

1) ENTER = enable hotkeys

2) SAVE STATE =  "ENTER" + arrows down

3) LOAD STATE = "ENTER" + arrows up

in this way, I can understand if the problem is encoder or RA...
