Ipega pg-9023 Controller Issues

  • Pi Model: 3b
    Power Supply used: 5v 2.5a (came in the canakit)
    RetroPie Version Used: 4.3.8
    Image used: I don't have the original image file anymore, however, it was downloaded from the retropie site and is not a 3rd party image.
    USB Devices connected: Ipazzport for keyboard and mouse
    Controller used: ipega pg-9023

    I am able to connect the controller via Bluetooth by going to the Bluetooth setting and registering it and it will join, but then when I get back to emulation station and go to configure inputs options it will not allow me to map the buttons. If I close emulation station and run jstest /Dev/input/js1 I can test and it is registering button pushes. I read in one article about this that you had to press the x+home button when turning on to get it to recognize, but that just puts it into discovery mode. This is the combination I set to connect it to the built in Bluetooth. If I connect it via a cable, it will detect it as a Microsoft Game Pad, and I can then use the emulation station correctly. If anyone has any ideas I would really like this to work as I plan on trying to make the pi portable.

    I did look through the forums and didn't see anyone else post anything like this, if they did I apologise.
