    I have a generic PS3 controller I am trying to configure in 3.2.1. I configured it in emulation station and just in case I installed the PS3 driver even though I am just using USB and no blue tooth.

    The joysticks configured correctly in the emulation station input setup. However, they don’t do anything in emulation station.

    When I start Ape Escape on the PlayStation it tells me a dualshock controller is not inserted and the joysticks don’t function in game either.

    How do I fix this?

    Have you previously used a keyboard to complete the emulationstation input config?

    I would suggest deleting any existing input cfg and rebooting with only your PS3 plugged in. Complete config there, and then also configure in retroarch input config
