@rockaddicted sorry Sñr. Mod. Forgot the rules in my distress of a whole day lost. I'm new to open source and programming. I'm running RPi 3 B and recalbox latest (which I think is 4.0.2 if I'm not mistaken). Running Pokémon fire red .gba (latest updated version as of July). Using 2016 Microsoft keyboard to save money on the English international (it fit the keys the best). Hope that's enough to go off of. I didn't see any posts in the thread about this issue happening to others, so I posted. Tnx.
