Hey guys! Got my shiny new RG351V today, and I loved it - for 2 hours, at least!

The issue is that the buttons have stopped working in games, although the D-pad and joystick are fine.

I've tested the buttons using the Emuelec button test utility from the main menu (under "All games/000 - input test") and they all register, so there's no hardware fault. However, when I start a game, they stop working.

I *think* it's a software issue with Retroarch - if I start the Retroarch interface outside a game ("select/start retroarch") then I get the same behaviour - I can navigate the menu but not press any buttons to select the options. My guess is that an input setting has been inadvertently overwritten (no idea how; I've only played games, not messed with the settings) and now I can't access any options to check or undo it.

Any thoughts? At the moment my console is unusable. Ah well, it was a glorious 2 hours while it lasted!

Thanks!

(edit) def appears to be a retroarch thing, as the DS emulation still works

I think I remember someone having a similar issue to this with the RG351P.
What's likely happened is that somehow the controls have become de-mapped in RetroArch.

While in EmulationStation, follow these steps:
> Press Start
> Select "EMUELEC SETTINGS"
> scroll down
> Select "DANGER ZONE!"
> Select "RESET RETROARCH CONFIG TO DEFAULT!"
> (If that fails, try "RESET SYSTEM TO DEFAULT CONFIG")

Does that fix things for you?

Hey! That absolutely did the trick, thank you! I'm back to being a happy gamer again :)
