Hot swapping cabinet controls with retro joypads in retroarch
« on: August 28, 2021, 05:55:50 am »
I have made an arcade cabinet and normally games are mapped to the controls on the actual cabinet.  I was wondering if there was a way to plug in a retro controller (such as the ones created by Mayflash, genesis controllers, SNES etc...) and for Retroarch to automatically detect it and switch to controls mapped to that pad?
