  • I want to build my own arcade controls!

Hi, is there a way to make the coin acceptor function to return to the Emulation Station main menu?
I can wire it as a hotkey now, but I will have to press another button at the same time as putting in a coin to send it back to the main menu.
Any way to return to the menu just by putting in a coin?
Thanks,.

This can probably be accomplished by remapping controls and not how you wire things up.

Set enable hotkeys to null in the RetroArch GUI...

Check this: https://youtu.be/fqBJUcctm7s?t=223

This: https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/RetroArch-Configuration

And this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBnKFRflEV4

There set "enable hotkeys" in RGUI to nothing. Or manually edit the config files and remove input_enable_hotkey_btn = "8". This will remove all hotkeys I believe, so make sure you remove these as well and/or assign another key to those actions.

Another way to achieve this is wiring select+exit to the same button (the coin acceptor).

How are you connecting your buttons to the Pi? If you're using the GPIO pins you could wire the coin acceptor to both the pin you've mapped as your hotkey button and the pin mapped to Start. Doing that would mean both getting pressed when the coin acceptor is and it would go back to main menu. A USB Encoder could be wired similarly I'd think.

If you want to do it in software you can edit what buttons work as hotkeys inside RetroArch when a game is launched.
