Just wanted to find out if there is a way to enable the vibration feedback through Amiberry 3.3 on my 8bitdo Pro 2 controller
The vibration works fine in Windows as I have tested.
I cannot seem to get it to work in retropie or Amiberry.
I have tried the retroarch quick menu and could not see enable vibration (as I 've seen suggested)
I have also tried changing the controller to retropie with analog in the retroarch menu.
Controller works fine just the vibration feedback.
Any help appreciated

Hey, not an expert, but I tried to set up rumble on an SN30 Pro recently. You might need to be in x-input mode, if you're not already, and on the Pro there's a button combo to turn on rumble on the controller - maybe check the manual to see if the Pro 2 has something similar.
On the Pro, x-input would lead to the triggers not being recognized, so I ended up leaving it in d-input anyway without rumble. Just out of curiosity, what Amiga games are you trying to play with vibration?

The Pro 2 has an x-input mode which is Windows , d-input , Switch mode and mac mode.
The x-input does have vibration when I test it in Windows.
In retropie I was having an issue with connecting to the controller through bluetooth so I reimaged retropie. I then set the controller up through switch mode as it was mentioned this connects better in retropie.
I will try and connect it in x-input mode and see how that goes. Hopefully I don't need to reimage retropie again :)
So far I have tried Paradroid 90 , Speedball 2 and Pinball Dreams. No vibration on any

@jimi007 Ok, so, I was an OG Amiga user. I had a 500, 2000, and a 3000. Amiga was made long before any console has force feedback of any kind. So, why would there be any vibration response in any Amiga game ever?
I guess I am trying to figure out why you are expecting vibration from a system that never had it. It just seems on par with expecting stereo surround sound from an Atari 2600.
