    Hi everyone!

    I love this project, I’ve installed retropie today and played some games with the keyboard, added games, paired dual shock controllers etc. In short: a lot of fun!

    Now, is it possible to pair my smarthphone with the Rpi and use it as a bluetooth controller? The idea is that when some friends come over, they just take there device, start an app that paires with the pi and launches the controller. I’ve searched a couple of hours but I couldn’t find a satisfying answer.

    Hi t-m

    This post may interest you. The way is different (Wi-Fi instead of Bluetooth) but the result is the same 🙂
