Connecting 2 x 8BitDo Controllers - only one hotkey?



  • I've got a SF30 Pro Controller and an 8BitDo Arcade Stick both connected to my RetroPie (in Switch mode - both latest firmware), however, only 1 controller seems to exit the game, by pressing Start+Select - is this by design?

    Also, there seems to be a small bit of latency with both controllers (which I know is a fact of bluetooth connections), is there anyway I can minimise this?

    Thanks,
    Stewart

    Yes, only the 1st player has access to Hotkeys.

    Disable the Wifi connection or get a BT USB adapter - what RPI Model are you using ?

    Its a Pi3 B+, I'll try and disable WiFi and see what happens.
