Bluetooth controllers are connecting but have a mind of their own



  • i got the PS3 and WiiU controller installer on a retropie 4.3 image (i think i got the latest from VLC's)
    bluetooth drivers are enabled for the wii U controller, PS3 drivers are also enabled

    .. so the issue is, no matter which Bluetooth controller i use, they both are recognized when booted up in retropie, buttons seems to all work
    but both controllers have a mind of their own ...
    i mean .. i am not touching anything and i see the selection in the menus randomly moving up or down or right or left
    sometimes starting a game

    what the hell is this the pi3 bluetooth that is a cheap piece of crap ???
    should i disable all bluetooth in retropie and buy a bluetooth dongle ???

    i also have a couple wired game pads / joystick that are working perfect when i do not have any Bluetooth controllers connected

    i am pretty sure the issue is coming from the bluetooth ... there is soooo many post about bluetooth issue it has to be the issue
    please help
