[quote=111160]Yes, your rc local file is right
I would try the commands in a terminal first, and see if a error message appears..
I tell you, and trust me, my method works fine, you can leve the raspberry on for days, and everytime i turn on the 8bitdo pad it works flawless
Update the system, write a new password, whatch the entire menus of retropie looking for optimal options,….
Check everithing, and tell me things
Hi, I try your method but no luck.
When I mod the rc.local file with all the commands you wrote, the pad doesn’t connect at all.
Could you copy/paste here your rc.local file to double check if I am missing something?

[quote=110154]So it’s the same MAC with Start-B (BT keyboard), but if I use Start-R (whatever that is, it’s not in the 8bitdo SNES30 manual, but from my research it’s gamepad mode with controller D-pad, not keyboard…sounds good, right?), it gets a different MAC address! Also a changed name: “8Bitdo SNES30 Gamepad Joystick” instead of “8Bitdo SNES30 Gamepad” So, something new to try.
Thanks Tossy and floob, this worked for me. I went through and removed all Bluetooth MAC addresses and button maps, started again and used Start-R on the SNES30 Controllers, mapped each one separately using floobs method and all works fine now!
Thanks guys, much appreciated!
As said in the quote above, Start-R isn’t in the user guide that comes with the SNES30, however this puts the controller in Joystick mode with a MAC address like mine – FE:FC:7C:AD:9F:FE and FE:FC:AA:51:9F:FE.
Any other method will generate different type of Mac address and not work with emulationstation.pausuriParticipant12/10/2015 at 21:56Post count: 33
Any help to make the L and R buttons as hotkeys, for instance, save and load save games?blue-barracudaParticipant12/30/2015 at 00:50Post count: 8
So I managed to get my controller recognized and I was able to set the ABXY Start and Select, but on the config menu it will not take the DPad inputs. No clue what’s wrong!FloobMember12/30/2015 at 22:18Post count: 1629
Most likely it needs to be started in a different mode. Which controller is it?blue-barracudaParticipant12/31/2015 at 13:26Post count: 8
I’m using the SNES30, I’m powering it on by holding the Start button for a couple seconds.FloobMember12/31/2015 at 16:03Post count: 1629
Can you try Start and R to see if the MAC is different, or if the D pad is detected?blue-barracudaParticipant12/31/2015 at 20:36Post count: 8
That was it. I needed to have it in the Start + R mode to detect the D-Pad. Things are working well now, except that I seem to have a slight input delay on the controller, i.e. it takes a moment too long after I hit the button before the game registers it. Is there any way to correct for that?FloobMember12/31/2015 at 21:16Post count: 1629blue-barracudaParticipant12/31/2015 at 23:27Post count: 8
I tried those tweaks, I’m not noticing an improvement. I’ll see how other games run.
I just received my second controller, do I need to do anything special to have a second one running? Or just follow the wiki steps like I did for the first one.tossyParticipant12/31/2015 at 23:52Post count: 9

For me with my SNES30, R-Select and L-Select work fine, but I have to press R or L first. Pressing Select first doesn’t work.king0fk0ngParticipant03/28/2016 at 19:02Post count: 4
FYI – the wiki needs to be updated. Specifically Step 5. In RetroPie 3.6, there is no more “Configure joystick/controller for use with RetroArch” option.slayer612Participant03/31/2016 at 09:08Post count: 4

That’s why the section you are referring to reads “This section is for Wheezy based RetroPie (pre version 3.4)” in the title.
There is no step 5 in the section “This section is for Jessie based RetroPie (version 3.4 and later)”, which would be the right section for setting up your controller in RetroPie 3.6.
