ps4 controller setup... retropie now wont get passed loading screen.
You don't need
ds4drvto pair your controller, just pair it as a normal Bluetooth controller and forget about
@mitu Hello, Yeh I tried that but it didnt work.
However, I cant even get retro pie to load back now as its locked on this screen and wont let me boot up.
@tim281080 You'll need a keyboard to be able to start Emulationstation and run the RetroPie-Setup to pair your controller. If you don't have one, then enable SSH and connect to your PI remotely from a PC - you can then run the setup from the command line.
Yeh Ive got a keyboard, but no commands work on this screen that i get too.
Basically, i power up. 10 seconds later this screen appears and then just sits there. I can type but nothing works.
Is there a command i can use from this screen to get back to emulation station?
@tim281080 What does the screen say ?
@tim281080 I advise you to re-flash your card and start anew, then follow the normal Bluetooth pairing method, without installing any additional drivers. If you still have problems, report them here.
@mitu ok thanks for your help.
probably incorrectly edited
/etc/rc.local- did you forget the
&on the end ? could ssh in and remove the line you added perhaps.
Quick update. I re-flashed and figured it out.
The problem was that i had the PS3 controller driver enabled and this was disconnecting the ps4 controller after it had synced up as they don't work together.
So i disabled the ps3 driver and then just blue-toothed the PS4 pad the normal way (without the DS4 driver) and it works perfectly.
Thanks for your help.
