Game playback controls
|Games||Game playback controls|
In Kodi, game playback can be controlled similar to movies. Pause, rewind and fast-forward are possible if supported by the emulator.
1 Button combo reminder
Kodi uses button combos inspired by RetroPie (see RetroPie documentation). A reminder is shown the first time a game is played:
To open the game menu, press the buttons on your controller that best match Select + X as they appear on the SNES controller. On modern controllers, the Select button is called Back (Xbox), View (Xbox One), Share (PS4) and various others.
2 Button combos
Games in Kodi can be controlled with the following button combos:
|Button combo||Player action|
|Select + X||Pause/resume|
|Select + Start||Exit|
|Select + Left trigger||Rewind|
|Select + Right trigger||Fast-forward|
|Select + Right stick||Change volume|
The in-game menu allows for some basic playback controls and shows the button combos.
4 Gameplay settings
