keyboard settings HELP

Post by Cjoli » Sun Jun 16, 2019 10:17 pm

Help :)

I was changing some of the navigation settings in Attract-Mode and i lost the ability to move up and down in the menus with the joystick or keyboard so i cant fix anything, is there a way to reset them or modify them on the SD card if i put it in a PC, I was looking for a config file or something and I cant seem to find it?

The main config for Attract-Mode is found in /home/pi/.attract/attract.cfg if it's fixable anywhere it should be there. Please let me know if you would like me to upload the default Attract config for you somewhere. If you can't fix the one you have already overwriting it with the original should fix it up.

It should. I'm pretty sure the input settings are in the main config file about half way down. Here's a copy of the file:

I think it's the right version, I've had an SD card mixup....

Following up on this, i replaced that config file but did not fix the issue, the problem i am having is i cant go up or down in the attract mode tab menu with the joystick or keyboard, the in game menus are fine its just attract mode that is the problem, i can just create a new image from scratch, its not a big deal.
