6. Translating Kodi controller to libretro's "RetroPad"

6. Translating Kodi controller to libretro's "RetroPad"

Unfortunately, libretro uses a fixed controller (called the RetroPad) for all of its cores, instead of a separate controller per system like Kodi. Therefore, each core needs a map of how its Kodi controller translates to the RetroPad.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
