The blueooth packages are part of the OS (Raspbian) - they can be upgraded if a new version is released by the upstream Raspbian project and can be installed with the apt utility, or just choosing to update your OS packages from RetroPie-Setup when you do an upgrade.
I try to pair a 2nd PS3 controller to my Raspberry Pi Zero W.
But it doesn't work.
Hardware: Raspberry Pi Zero W
Bluetooth: onboad BT
I was able to successfully pair 1 controller, but I cannot pair a 2nd one.
The 2nd controller works if I connect it via USB, so the controller should be fine
(I tried 3 other controllers, for all the same behavior)
How can I pair more than 1 PS3 controller, preferably with the onboad BT controller.
Thank a lot and cheers!
PS: If I missed a documentation for that specific problem I am find with a pointer to the RTFM ;)
@PCKid It doesn't seem you have RetroPie installed, but Lakka (lakka.tv). Regardless, we don't support 3rd party images, so start by installing the image from retropie.org.uk/download and then you can follow the docs to set-up your controller and configure it in Emulationstation.
Two things. First...coming from someone who never had Coleco...This thing is so graphically superior to Atari its disgusting. Second...I figured it out by playing around with it. If you have a PS3 controller just copy paste this into the CoolCV Mapping file on the pie. If you dont like something on it just tweak but it works.
I´m sorry. Yes they do work individually in Emulationstation outside of games and also inside. But only the first 4 controllers which I connect work simultaniously. The fifth won´t connect via bluetooth (lights are flashing constantly).
Same problem for me also. I used to run RetroPie 4.3 on Jessie and had no probems with the PS3 controller or N64 Emulation. I just did a fresh install of RetroPie 4.4 on Stretch fully updated and dist-upgraded. N64Glide emulation doesnt work along with weird bluetooth behavior on PS3. What bluetooth dongle would I need to get to fix the problem? Odd because this problem didn't happen on previous versions on the exact same board.
