Go into the cfg folder and either delete the default.cfg file and redo all the buttons (i think they will go back to default)

or open it with note pad or a text editor and search for this:

<port type="UI_SELECT">

my button is set to Enter also and it shows

KEYCODE_ENTER

I use MAME .145, Im not sure if the setup will be the same.

Being on the Pi im not sure if you will need to SSH into it or if you can just plug the SD card into a windows machine.

I know the OP question was answered, but for future reference: You can SSH into it, or plug the SD card into a PC. If you plug the SD card into a PC you may need a utility to open the second partition on the card. Usually the boot partition is the only one that pops up by default as a drive. The other partition is in ExtFS which you may have trouble accessing without some extra utility. Once you can access the ExtFS partition where all the good stuff is, you can navigate it like a normal drive and manipulate it like normal. On a Mac, I have to use Paragon ExtFS utility which costs around $30 (I think).

I've also set up a bunch of the folders as samba shares which can be mounted over the network. Using that method you can see most everything, but due to permissions issues, you may not be able to edit everything without some extra setup first.
