HOWTO - Dreamcast reconfigure controls - Reicast - alexkidd - 11-23-2016

Hello guys,

Controls in Reicast (Dreamcast emulator) should work fine once you map your controller in EmulationStation. Although it seems it does not work that well for quite some people.

So, check this:

1. Go to Desktop mode from main menu

2. Open a terminal window and run:
Code:
sudo pluma /opt/retropie/configs/dreamcast/emu.cfg

or use File Manager to open it.

3. Open another terminal window and run the following commands:


Code:
sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev
sudo pip install evdev
sudo chmod +x /opt/retropie/emulators/reicast/bin/reicast-joyconfig
/opt/retropie/emulators/reicast/bin/reicast-joyconfig
you should be able to choose the controller and map all buttons. Settings will be generated , just copy/paste them in the emu.cfg file you opened before. Save and close it.

4. Now disable EmulationStation autoconfig
Code:
pluma /opt/retropie/configs/all/autoconf.cfg

change

Code:
reicast_input = "0"
