configured my wireless mini keyboard and lost the GBA joypad configurations
#1
Hope all is well, if you could please help me I would greatly appreciate it, I configured my wireless mini keyboard and lost the GBA joypad configurations; I will not move and none of the buttons work, how do I restore the original settings. Also how can I add additional controllers and still keep my settings?

I was able to fix the GBA joypad config by reinstalling the ./install.sh

I'm glad you were able to fix it. I'm sorry that I was unavailable to help all weekend.

Hope all is well. I would like to add a wired xbox controller so I can play a few N64 and PlayStation games. How do I  add additional controllers without ruining the GBA joypad configurations. I would greatly appreciate it if you could walk me through this.

In theory, you should be able to hit START on the built-in gamepad. Then select Configure Controller (or whatever it's called, since I'm going from memory here).

Then you should get a message that says "HOLD A BUTTON"

On the wired controller (that's presumably plugged in via USB), just hold a button. It should detect that and begin the setup process. Map all the buttons and then exit at the end. It will pause for a few seconds at the end, and it _should_ set up the controller without messing up the built-in controller.

When you "lose" the built-in joypad configuration, what exactly do you mean? Does it continue to work in the menu? Does it work in some emulators? Does it only fail in N64 or PSX or what?

Yes thank you. Unfortunately this is how I lost my built in controller configuration where my built in controls stopped working completely, I was unable to move throughout the menu screen or enter into a game, etc. The only way I was able to maneuver around was through the external control that I configured. I decided to reinstall the controller setup and it restored the controller setup. On My other raspberry pi builds(regular pi3) I am able to set multiple game controllers and all configuration are saved and set without losing any configurations.

I agree that it is supposed to work that way, and I know it has in the past for me. Maybe something changed since RetroPie v4.4. There's a chance that I haven't tried a second USB controller since then, I guess.

Have you tried this with mini keyboard AND the Xbox wired USB and had the same problem with both?

So I was able to connect a XBOX controller without losing the built in GPIO Controller 1.cfg settings. I figured out why I lost my built in controller configuration. So in the GPIO Controller 1.cfg there is a keyboard layout so by reconfiguring the keyboard you automatically delete the original es_input.cfg and establish a new es_temporaryinput.cfg

Oh, yeah. I guess that makes sense. Maybe you're the first person that has defined a new keyboard. Most are just standard USB keyboards, I guess.

I reconfigured my keyboard because I was trying to use the NDS (drastic emulator) and between the keyboard and built in controller it did not allow me to go into the emulator’s setting menu so I connected the XBOX one controller. XBOX one controller works fine with most emulators except for the NDs
