Hello! Anyone knows how to assign a button on joystick to see the achievements on a game running? Just to replace the ESC button on keyboard to a button on joystick. Sorry my bad english.

Yeah, use what Brian said, except in RAGens it seems to work fine with input already.

For RAGens, I believe you map the HOME button to one of the keys, my select button does that for me.

For RAVBA, go to Tools > Customize and set FilePause to an input.

For RASNES, go to Input > Customize Hotkeys and change Pause/Overlay on page 1.

For RANES, Config > Map Hotkeys and change Pause to whatever, this crashes the emulator half the time it seems, do it without a rom loaded for better chances.

In RAPCE I believe it's CPU > Configure Pause Button but I'm not sure about that one.

Old thread but this is the top result in google so I will post here. The button for RAProject64 is F2. It can be changed in Settings > CPU State Game Playing (windowed) AND Game Playing(full-screen) > Keyboard Shortcuts > System Menu > Pause

P64 has different hotkeys depending on if you fullscreen or not so it needs changed in both.
