I managed to get one of these controllers to connect to the Pi over Bluetooth after a couple of evenings of frustration, but now I have an issue where in the initial controller configuration the d-pad is recognised as a keyboard input and the buttons are recognised as the NES30 gamepad.

I noticed that on the 8bitdo firmware updates section that in firmware version 2.52 they had addressed the issue of d-pads being registered as keyboard arrows, but it would seem that this is not the case. Personally I think it is a firmware issue that has not been adequately addressed, but I’m willing to be proven wrong.

I might be able to help you connect the thing over bluetooth (if you haven’t sussed that out already), but I wouldn’t be able to solve the issue I’m having for you, if you indeed come across it yourself.
