Change SDL library version and reset controller configuration

The "SDL Library Selector" menu allows you to reset controller configuration. This might be useful in case of conflict in the controller configuration module. Just click the "Reset GamePad config" button, all controller configuration will be deleted (except keyboard), and RetroBat will prompt you to configure your controller(s) again. Thie action performs a reinitialization of the es_input.cfg file located in the emulationstation\.emulationstation folder of your RetroBat installation.

From the "SDL Library Selector" menu, you will also be able to choose between different SDL versions. This option might be useful if some of your controllers are not correctly recognized as a last resort option (always start from the more recent, and try the versions from the most recent to the oldest). To do so, choose a DLL from the dropdown list, and click "Close". Then click "Reset GamePad config". You can now start RetroBat and reconfigure your controller.
