exit to attract mode question

Post by digitaldocc » Thu Jun 04, 2020 7:02 pm

I have the latest 4player image installed and there seems to be two ways to exit from a game into attract mode. Holding P1 start or holding Joy 0 button 1 both exit a game. Could you tell me where I can edit the config directly or where in the menu system I can remove joy 0 button 1? It would be to easy for a guest to exit a game by accident. Thank you

Check /boot/hotkeys.ini - the line to delete will probably be
B=BTN_B:KEY_ESC:3000
If you're using Windows make sure to use Notepad++ or another good text editor, the built in Windows editors will bork Linux formatted files and cause issues.

Thank you for the support. Notepad++ worked perfectly and that was exactly the line I needed to comment out.
