  5. But, what about tweaking the touchscreen controller (overlay)? I’m needing help setting up buttons to combine keys (say using the x button for a and b simultaneously on older genesis games that only utilized the 3 button pad) making the buttons larger, moving the position of the dpad, etc. This was incredibly easy to do in Mame but it’s a headache in Retroarch. Why does everything have to be so complicated?
