Remapped hotkey blank

  • Hello everyone,
    Fairly new recalbox user her and working on an arcade box project with my daughter. I messed up in the Mame2003 emulator while trying to fix button mapping. I was changing the GUI hotkey but after it waited for the new combination it wouldn't accept any key presses. The emulator backed out to the system/core menu with that hotkey still blank. I cannot find a way to remap this hotkey as I need to either find the info/config for this, or use the hotkey that is no longer mapped.
    I am using a PS3 controller
    Dragon blaze 6.1 build
    For x86_64 machine.
    I can't remote in using the ip method and have my install booting off of a thumb drive with the roms mounted to a removable data drive.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Sorry if this has been answered before but I could not find it on here with a search.

  • Hello,

    You can use a keyboard to remap your controller.


  • @zetof I tried that but the hotkey to the Mame GUI is blank so the keyboard hotkey does not work either.
    My controller still works overall, I just have no way of reaching the settings menu for the Mame core now.

    @wkkriddlebox When you remapped the buttons inside the emulator, a configuration file was saved, IF I AM NOT MISTAKE (check and back up first!), The path where this configuration file is saved is:

    \\ SHARE \ system \ .config \ retroarch \ config

    There are several configurations, from several cores, you need to find the one you did wrong (MAME 2003 as I understand it), and delete it (BACKUP FIRST!), That way, the emulator returns with the original configuration.
