    Hi all,

    I just finished to setup my PS3 controller to work with a Bluetooth adapter. It works perfectly fine, but when booting the Pi, it starts emulation station faster than it can find the controller, so I get the message “CONFIGURE INPUT” with the “hold a button to configure…”. It detect the PS3 controller perfectly fine, but just a second too late.

    Is there a way to skip that screen and simply always use the PS3 controller as a kind of default? Because I cannot press F4 to skip this message with my controller, sadly, so I have to reconfigure it again or plug a keyboard and press F4.

    I suppose it’s also possible to configure F4 to be a combination of buttons (worst case scenario)?

    Thank you anyway for your help! ^_^
