Hi to all,
I’m trying to use my original PS3 controller with last version of retropie but I have some problem:
1-the controller works only in emulationstation (by USB cable, see point 2), when I enter in game I can play only with keyboard;
2-I can’t match the ps3 controller with BT dongle. I follow the youtube tutorial mentionated in wiki section but when I try to hold PS button the controller start to vibrate and all four leds start blinking in sequence.
Thx in advance
did the pairing from the terminal work as per the tutorial?
For step 2: did you remove the USB cable after the pairing as per instructions? What I found is I press the PS button once, it starts vibrating/cycling lights and I press it a second time (both times a short press) and it works. Let me know if this works for you!
yes I did….I have followed the tutorial but my controller doesn’t appears in the menu “configure input devices from retroarch”, there is only keyboard. About point n.2, I have tried by pressing the PS button two times as suggest by you but nothing happens.
One questions: the tutorial starts with ps3 controlled plugged to rasp by usb cable, then I must insert the BT dongle in rasp, push PS button and then unplug the USB cable, is it right?
The video tutorial is a little bit outdated. Just install ps3 driver “once” and connect your controller over usb afterwards. Everything should be setup now. Remove usb cable and press PS button. Your controller should pair (one LED should light up). Start controller config in emulationstation (Start button + Input configuration) and configure your controller.
