I’ve tried option 1 with no luck. It acts just like the default install for me where trying to power on and sync the 3rd controller just ends with the controller light turning off. No sync.
Option 3 works the best but I still have an issue. I can get the 3rd controller sync’d but the issue is all the lights on each controller continue to flash which makes picking out the correct controller problematic.
Is there anyone here that has 4 wireless controllers working w/ lights properly lit solid? I realize 4 player games are a small subset so maybe it isn’t likely many have come across this yet.
Nevermind. I figured it out. The instructions on that page say to just place that code above the exit line. It doesn’t say delete the xboxdrv line above it that is already there. Once you do that it picks up all 4 wireless controllers.
Thanks for the quick reply. That worked in getting all 3 of my controllers synced. But now retroarch is all messed up.. it thinks controller 3 is controller one and the buttons either don’t work or are switched around. I tried reconfiguring them from the main menu… and it didn’t help. :/ Any ideas? They aren’t working right in mame either.
That wiki page could be updated to be clearer but the general idea on it is correct. You just have to look at the syntax at the default rc.local file for clues as to how to get it working for the most recent version of retropie.
