I just wanted to quickly talk about the issue I’m having with my Pi 2.
Basically I upgraded my Pi 1 version of RetroPie to the latest version and then used it for a while in my Pi2. (The emulation performance was obviously worse than the Pi 2 image)
My Belkin Bluetooth adapter worked brilliantly. Connected PS3 controllers to it straight away. Could use two ps3 controllers simultaneously with zero issues.
However, when I flashed the Rpi 2’s version onto a new card and started using that, (better performing emulators of course!), and tried setting up my PS3 controllers it would just refuse to connect no matter what I tried.
I’ve followed the video guide by floob AND I’ve tried the other bluetooth software suggested on this forum. No dice.
What is interesting though, is that the device is still picked up by the Pi when you run Hciconfig. But somehow it doesn’t seem to register the master MAC address to the controllers properly.
So say my dongle’s MAC address is:
What my controller ends up having is:
Even though it says it’s set it up right when I run sudo ./sixpair
Likewise when I run the bluez software after setting it up I get a loop of:
Somewhere between the two versions something has changed that is preventing my Belkin adapter to work.
Do I need to get a new bluetooth device that works with the Pi2’s version of RetroPie? Or is there a way to get the Pi 1’s way of handling it working on the Pi 2 image?
I don’t have any answers, but I’m sorry to hear it’s stopped working. You’ve dug deeper into your issue that I’m sure most would have, so perhaps open an Issue ticket on the RP Github page if you have no luck getting answer here?
