This looks great! I appreciate the guide. Excuse my lack of technical terminology and know-how, but do you think it'd be possible to also have some simple USB controllers plugged in but create some kind of switcher – whether it's a physical switch or some kind of program on the pi – to be able to switch between the traditional arcade-style controls and USB SNES-style controllers? Like maybe an on/off for the arcade controls and an on/off for the SNES controllers?
