    I would love if my retropie detected when a ps3 controller was connected then switched to that as controller 1. This would save going into the gui each time I boot a game to select the ps3 controller!

    True dat, my friend! That would be excellent!

    Can this be done?

    You could plug that into the top left USB slot – and retroarch will treat that as P1?

    Thanks for the suggestion but this didn’t work. It seems retropie assigns controllers based on the order they are detected and because I have 2 hardwired in, the bluetooth ps3 controller is never first!

    Thats odd, it seems to behave that way when I just tested on mysetup, the one I put in the top left is marked as P1.
