Is it possible to map the controller with a button combination so you can access the RetroArch menu without the keyboard?

Well of you don't mind, I can test for you. I have tons of games I can test, both legit and bootleg.

- I finished it...
Hey, I was trying to get that build running on a 64g card. I managed to extend the userdata partition out to 50 gigs but now the SQ takes over 10 minutes to boot up. Were you running the stock SD card in this demo video?

Edit: I too could help test save transfers if you would like more people working on it. I do not know much about Linux but I do have an external drive with Ubuntu installed on it and a decent number of GB games. I would be happy to help!

Check my latest one out. I still can't get saves converted back (this is due to my lack of know-how) but you can use that 64gb card on Partition 6 which will get mounted as "sdcard" you can stick whatever roms you want in there, without the extra loading time for "userdata"

I second the above sentiment. Thank you! I am still willing to test anything else you want to try with it if you need anyone to I noticed it runs PS1 games pretty well but mine would crash after about 2 hours of play.
