Sony DualShock 3 - call for testers: "sixaxis" script module



  • Morning tests :
    More logs, woohoo !
    Hori detected at boot (as input0):

    Still jslist returns apparently false index and DS3 player 1 LED is on :

    pi@retropie:~/RetroPie-Setup $ /opt/retropie/supplementary/joystick-selection/jslist 
    0:Sony PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller
    1:HORI CO.,LTD. Fighting Stick mini 4
    

    Out of curiosity, I also tried to plug the DS3 through USB, aaaaaannnd :

    The jslist output is ok, the USB connected DS3 has index 1, and Hori has index 0...

    pi@retropie:~ $ /opt/retropie/supplementary/joystick-selection/jslist 
    0:HORI CO.,LTD. Fighting Stick mini 4

    Moreover, adding another DS3 (using BT this time) :

    [Sat Mar 10 09:46:10 2018] input: Sony PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller as /devices/platform/soc/3f201000.serial/tty/ttyAMA0/hci0/hci0:12/0005:054C:0268.0004/input/input3

    pi@retropie:~ $ /opt/retropie/supplementary/joystick-selection/jslist 
    0:Sony PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller
    1:HORI CO.,LTD. Fighting Stick mini 4
    2:Sony PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller
    

    Here the BT connected DS3 took index 0, Hori shifted to index 1 and USB connected DS3 to index 2...

    So to resume this mess :
    USB connected DS3 are listed correctly by jslist (index follows the connection order)
    BT connected PS3 seem to have precedence : they always take the first controller indexes according to jslist, shifting all other controllers indexes upward.
    The issue is that OS and retroarch doesn't act the same and apparently rely on connection order for controller indexes.

    My opinion is that SDL joystick index used in jslist is somewhat different from the OS (and apparently retroarch) used index.
    It's like the BT connected DS3 always get the lowest index for SDL, instead of taking the next available as it should.

    Hope this could help.

    @psyke83
    Thank you for replying me.
    As asked i try to install custombluez from source but it fail with the following error

    I'll be busy today, but when I get some time, I'll re-flash a jessie image to identify what packages I've missed - which I'm assuming is what's causing the build error.

    If you can post the full log, it would be helpful. A quick way to identify what may be missing is:
    sudo apt-get build-dep bluez

    ...but you may need to edit your sources lists in /etc/apt/ to enable the deb-src lines, and then update your apt-get repository, for it to work.

    I'll get around to flashing jessie soon, but don't feel obliged to help with the issue of building from source. What will really be helpful from you is feedback on whether Gasia controllers work correctly via Bluetooth. Confirming that both types of third-party controllers work will be a positive step towards knowing if we can phase out the ps3controllerdriver entirely.

    Thanks!

    @Sano - much appreciated for the detailed information. I'll look into this soon, but I'm at a bit of disadvantage, as I don't have any controllers besides the two DS3s to test.

    One thing that you could possibly try is to uninstall customhidsonyafter installing sixaxis. Bluetooth pairing will actually work with the old hid-sony kernel driver. You may need to remap the controller again, and the 10 minute disconnect won't be possible, but it may be helpful to know if the strange controller ordering behaviour differs between different versions of the hid-sonydriver, or if the problem is caused elsewhere.

    Done !
    Uninstalled customhidsony and rebooted.
    The BT DS3 still connect, and the behavior is the same :(

    Still retroarch considers the USB stick to be the first controller.
    Maybe a change in sixaxis driver, or in SDL controller mapping...
    This was definitely working back with jessie image :(

    @Sano

    Thanks. Despite it being a PS3-compatible, the hid-sony driver doesn't grab your Hori, as it's using hid-generic. Not sure if that's relevant, though.

    I'm fairly certain this isn't a stretch issue, but you could confirm it's not by removing sixaxis, customhidsony and custombluez (if you ever installed it), and reinstall the standard ps3controller driver. If the ordering issue is fixed, then at least we'll know it's caused by hid-sony/my PR and not the distribution upgrade.



  • @psyke83
    As the behaviour is the same with a non-sony compatible USB controller - Dragonrise, see my previous messages - I think we can conclude that the HORI Sony compatibility is not relevant.

    Edit : removed your branch and installed basic sixad driver, and unfortunately all is back to normal :

    [Sat Mar 10 13:49:35 2018] input: PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller as /devices/virtual/input/input3
    

    SDL controller indexes are now in the correct (connection) order:

    And the LED on the DS3 is Player 2 (as it should be)...

    @meleu you can take a breath, mate ;)

    No problem, soon as possible i will report back with the information you asked and will try a gaisa controller to see if it's working.
    In the meantime here is the full log

    Removed custombluez and sixaxis driver to start from scratch.

    @MadHorse

    I'll sort out the issue building from source, so you don't need worry about that. What would help is to capture some bluetooth logging. In an SSH session, execute bluetoothctl. Once launched, it will print Bluetooth events/errors as well as providing a command prompt (bluetooth#).

    Three pieces of information will be helpful (but don't try to pair the controller when capturing output for steps 1-2):

    1. Verify that bluetooth upgraded correctly to version 5.48. Type in the console:
      version
    2. When you launch bluetoothctl, it lists paired devices prefixed with [NEW] - your PS3 controller should be in this list. Query the information of your controller (replace 12:34:56:78:9a:bc with the actual MAC address that's shown for your controller):
      info 12:34:56:78:9a:bc
    3. While the bluetoothctl console is still open, type nothing, but attempt to pair your controller. Capture any new output that appears during this time for me to inspect.

    This should help give me an idea of the next step - thanks.

    ok, i try what you asked me, started with a newly installed retropie 4.3, i was configuring a retropie for a firend and i used it for tests, but i had to give it back to him.
    So, after a full update, the following are the results:

    Hope this can be of help.
    If i can do anything else let me know.

    @MadHorse

    This is somewhat encouraging. My guess is that the BlueZ stack has already cached a generic (and incorrect) HID profile for your controller, most likely when you paired via the ps3controller driver or an older BlueZ stack version.

    The Shanwan and Gasia controllers do not pass a correct SDP (Service Discovery Protocol) record via Bluetooth, which is needed for BlueZ to know what HID profile to apply. This doesn't matter on a real PS3, but causes problems on BlueZ until version 5.48, where a correct record is now forced for all controllers. When no SDP record is passed to the stack, a controller will enumerate a input-keyboardHID profile and fail to pair correctly.

    The potential solution is for you to remove the device from the Bluetooth stack and re-pair so that a new profile will be created. In the bluetoothctl prompt:

    remove 00:26:5C:5D:BD:00

    Once this is done, go through the process of pairing your controller from the RetroPie bluetooth menu once again.

    Hopefully it will pair correctly now, and you'll see Icon: input-gaming in the profile information, indicating that the correct SDP record has been applied.

    If you still have no success, the output of this may help:
    cat /var/log/syslog | grep -e blue -e sixaxis



  • @psyke83
    Regarding the (apparently) wrong SDL controller index, don't hesitate to ask if you need more informations or tests.



  • @psyke83
    I don't think the problem if for an already cached HID profile becasue the raspberry pi 3 is still te same but i've renstalled Retropie on a new SD card.
    Anyway, i removed the controller

    Mar 14 08:13:02 retropie bluetoothd[655]: Can't get HIDP connection info

    @madhorse

    It looks like this line may be a clue:

    Mar 13 22:40:38 retropie bluetoothd[5383]: 00:26:5C:5D:BD:00: error updating services: Connection timed out (110)
    

    I'll look into the issue and get back to you - your help has been much appreciated.



  • @psyke83
    I'm glad to help if i can.
    If you want me to try anything else i'm here.



  • @psyke83 What is the easiest way to revert back to the master branch using git? I want to do some other testing without this script module and then switch back to it in the future.



  • @psyke83 For information, at first glance your sixaxis version works like a charm on newest 4.14.30 kernel.
    I'll continue the tests, but no ghost input (unlike the native driver).
    just had to remap my controller.



  • On Shenwan Controllers I get a Timor Out error and need to plug and unplug it a few times to get it to pair the first time. But works good.

    Also get a sixad.service could not start error on the Bluetooth screen.

    Button mapping is better for those emulators that hard code button 1 and 2 which is now X and O instead of SELECT and I think L3.

    Keep up the good work will happily help solve the Shenwan issues.



  • I have lost overview about this.

    Is this new driver already in the 4.4 release?
    Since I will try to install RetroPie for new on a Ubuntu 17.10.1 amd64.



  • I'm having an awful time trying to sync my Shenwan controllers. It finds the controllers but then asks me to input a 6 digit pin number, which of course is not possible. Any recommendations?
    Edit: I've tried all the different pair options that pop up when initially pairing and all of them are requiring a 6 digit pin. :(



  • @iriman had this input too with genuine PS3 Sixaxis Controllers. I just ignored the message and canceled the process when the input of the code was required.

    The Controller works fine anyway, only issue is that i cannot configure the analog sticks in Emulationstation, but this will have nothing to do with the Bluetooth Connection
