Sega Saturn games L + R buttons not working

Post by peacemaster »

Hello!

I'm not able to get the L + R buttons to work on Sega Saturn games: for instance, Shining Force III, where they are used to rotate the camera. I have to use a little mini keyboard to hit ESC and access the Saturn menu where I can change controls -- but the L and R buttons, while present in the drop-down, are for some reason greyed out, so I can't assign any controller buttons to them. Is there a way around this? Thank you for any help!

Best,
Jon

Which OS image and emulator core do you use?

I'm not sure about the OS image but the Odroid is XU4 and the emulator is yaba-sanshiro. Is there a way to check the image after the fact? Thank you!

That information is not enough.
Where did you download the image?

Someone on etsy put it together for me originally. My skills don't go far beyond finding and adding roms.

I found out that the XU4 base image is v.1.65 Ora Odroid. Is there a way to fix the Saturn controls on this, and/or update without losing all the roms, etc.?

Thanks!

I think you are running RetroArena OS image.
Post a question on their discord channel. (I can't access RetroArena home page at this moment though)
