@mitu #FacePalm Yes, it is a 1708 model, but, I totally forgot about the pair button VS just holding the X-Box button to connect. Thank you for screwing my head on straight; sometimes you can see the forest full of trees, sometimes you can't...
Hopefully, someone that was able to connect these will chime in here. I have the same problem, seems like I was able to connect them through bluetoothctl in the OS (got success message and the rumble from the controller), but nothing I can do to connect with RetroPie and have them usable.
@mitu I actually figured it out myself. I updated retropie and it’s all good now. I actually wiped out my entire retropie burning the Sinden light gun image on my sd card. I can’t figure out how to do this without wiping everything out.
@offlercrocgod Xbox360 controllers do not have Bluetooth and will require a usb adapter to work. 3rd party adaptors are sold on Amazon and work just fine.
If you wanted to go the Bluetooth route, you need an Xbox one controller WITH BLUETOOTH. Not all have it. Or get a ps4 controller.
That could be your problem right there. "All"? You don't need any certification to post a video online.
Without knowing what you did, how can anyone help?
Regardless, it's probably just a driver issue. You may have inadvertently deleted a file which one of the videos told you wasn't important, but actually was. Maybe you bumped the keyboard while editing a config file. I don't know.
I paired the controller in windows and copied the link key to my raspberry pi as one of the users on github mentioned. Now the pairing works and I can use the controller. Now the Xbox-Button doesn't work as hotkey for both controllers anymore. But this might be an issue because of updating the whole system.
@g0nz0uk it could be that the driver support has changed in the kernel for this controller, and it's seen differently.
can you not just reset your controller configuration in emulationstation, and rebind? -
Choose Manage Packages.
Choose Manage Core Packages.
Choose emulationstation (Installed)
Choose Configurations / Options (it may also be named Configurations Tools)
Choose the option to Clear/Reset Emulation Station input configuration.
Choose Yes to proceed to clear the controller settings.
Then when you return to ES you will be asked to rebind your controller, that will then filter through to all cores, etc.
