Hotkeys

Hotkeys can be found in the Retrobat notice here.

Hotkeys are used to perform several operations while in-game, the more frequent usage will be to quit games/emulators by pressing HOTKEY + START

In-Game Hotkeys

For some Emulators, hotkeys for face buttons will be reversed for NINTENDO controllers based on the NINTENDO layout (Switch Pro controllers for example):

Reach out to the RetroBat team if this is the case, we'll perform the correction to align all emulators to the standard layout.
