Hello one and all,

I’m hoping that someone is able to help me regarding the controls and how to change them. Now, I’m quite familiar with using an individual emulator to play specific roms, but I have never used a front end of any kind. I’ve downloaded a small number of front ends (including those under “Others” from the pull down menu) if they were posted in the last year or so. For now, I’m just going to refer to three specific releases:

  1. CoinOPS Linux RetroARCADE Elites v1.1 – Self Booting CoinOps PC
  2. Complete Play Arcade – RetroFE – By Arcadiano

I first tried to use [CoinOPS Linux RetroARCADE Elites v1.1 – Self Booting CoinOps PC], but struggled to get several controllers working with it. Regardless of the controller in use, only the directional pad and one or two other buttons seem to do anything at the main menu and any particular game loaded. I have tried to find a way to find the settings page on the main menu to configure the controller and have found nothing. Regarding the other two OS’s, though I have downloaded them, I have yet to install them in the event that I am unable to configure the settings to change the controls.

Now, I am here. How does One change the settings for the controls? Also, for variation of different systems / releases / whatever, what PC Frontend would you recommend on trying out, and how easy is it to change settings for the controllers?

Looking forward to hearing a reply.

P.S. No idea if there’s discord for any group releases / arcade punks, so if there’s any you’d recommend to join, please let me know.
