HELP! DELTETED SELECT BUTTON
« on: March 24, 2020, 09:35:08 PM »
SO I have a arcade cabinet that im setting up. Was finally in the finishing touches with my arcade button controls in attract mode and I accidentally deleted my select button. I tried some of the methods I found online but none have worked. I currently cannot even back out of attract mode as it asks if i am sure I want to back out. It also boots directly into attract mode when I power off and on. BUMMED OUT as I finally have time to set this up. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Edit your attract.cfg to add/change the desired key/button. This might need to be done when AM is not running. If done while AM is running you might need a restart.

This is the default key map
Code: [Select]
input_map
configure            Tab
prev_letter          Up+LControl
next_letter          Down+LControl
filters_menu         Left+LControl
next_filter          Right+LControl
configure            Escape+Up
edit_game            Escape+Down
add_favourite        Escape+LControl
prev_letter          Joy0 Up+Joy0 Button0
next_letter          Joy0 Down+Joy0 Button0
filters_menu         Joy0 Left+Joy0 Button0
next_filter          Joy0 Right+Joy0 Button0
configure            Joy0 Up+Joy0 Button1
edit_game            Joy0 Down+Joy0 Button1
add_favourite        Joy0 Button0+Joy0 Button1
back                 Escape
back                 Joy0 Button1
up                   Up
up                   Joy0 Up
down                 Down
down                 Joy0 Down
left                 Left
left                 Joy0 Left
right                Right
right                Joy0 Right
select               Return
select               LControl
select               Joy0 Button0
default             back exit
default             up prev_game
default             down next_game
default             left prev_display
default             right next_display

Windows: ctrl + alt + del > task manager
Mac: cmd + tab > finder or terminal
Linux: ctrl + alt + f2 (maybe?)

Mac or linux, edit or remove:
$ nano <path>attract.cfg
$ rm <path>attract.cfg

Thanks for the responses! I plugged in my keyboard but only the enter button is working as "select". Problem now is I am trying to get to the configure controls again in attract mode. The Tab button is not pulling up anything for the menu. I am new to all this so thanks again for the help.

Edit your attract.cfg file "input_map" section to match what I posted above to resolve your issue. You can then move on to setup your controls properly.
