Pair bluetooth controller

Pairing game controllers can be difficult. One way to do be sure to get the right controller is to pair the bluetooth controller to your computer, then look for the MAC address there, then unpair it. Then go onto the terminal and run sudo ~/RetroPie-Setup/ and walk through pairing the controller there now that you know the MAC address.

Enable rewind

I don't know why rewind isn't enabled by default, since it's one of the best features.

  1. Start a game
  2. Enter the quick menu (Share + Triangle on PS4 controller)
  3. Go up one menu (X on PS4 controller)
  4. Navigate to Settings -> Input -> Hotkeys, then configure Rewind and Fast Forward to whatever you want.
  5. Go back up to the top menu, then go to Settings -> Frame Throttle -> Rewind, and toggle Rewind Support on.
  6. Go back up to the top menu, then go to Configuration File -> Save Current Configuration
