I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

Just to be clear, are you trying to manually edit key inputs on the qt-config.ini file or through the citra UI?

yes through the ini @bio3c

mainly what it keeps doing is whenever I go to save the qt-config.ini it reverts back to what it was before

finally got it to specify the required key combinations
