    Hi there, I have a GameSirG3s xiaomi game pad that vibrates (on steam when is connected to the PC). I am using it as my only gamepad on retropie 4.4 on a raspberry pie 3 b+, the only way I manage to have it working is via a USB dongle utilizing the gamepad’s windows mode (it suppose to have different connections modes, USB dongle, wired and Bluetooth). Since day one it was a problem to configure and to have it detected but after some fighting I manage to make it work, and it has been quite good for a while, the only problem is that I have never manage to make it vibe, I have tried ps1 games on lr-pcsx-rearmed with dualshock but it never works.
    I did check the RetroArch quick menu under -> Options -> Enable Vibration = enabled.
    Any ideas? Has anybody manage to make work the DualShock or rumble pad?

    @Lazzarous_84 Are you using the ps3 driver to make it work or did it work without any additional drivers installed ?



  • hi @mitu thanks for the answer,
    One of the things I think It might helped back when I configure it was that it worked after I plugged a generic X-box one controller, how do it make the Ps3 driver take control of it? should I uninstall de xbox driver? or try to connect it via bluethoot?

    @Lazzarous_84 You can't make the ps3 driver work for an Xbox compatible controller. How is the controller detected ? As a PS3 controller or as an XBox controller ?
