    This is a new issue to 3.4 and 3.5.

    Previously in 3.3 it was working fine.

    My Ps3 controllers won’t pair through bluetooth unless I plug them in through usb first.

    Once they are paired they are fine. But I hope that I don’t have to plug them in first before every time I want to play.

    I’ve looked around and I haven’t been able to find any solutions.

    Any ideas?

    The new versions of retropie use this pair mode “when you plug the cable the joypad sync” you can try to install the old method using this tutorial but I dont know the results….
    Sorry for bad english I try to help ;)

    you plug them in via usb, unplug them, and they pair. then they should pair automatically on future boots.

    That’s the issue. It makes me re-plug them in every time that I reboot.

    Worked fine with my ps3 controller last time I tested, but will try again.

    Thanks.

    I tried this on multiple fresh installs of 3.4 and 3.5 and had the same issue. Even with 2 different controllers.

    The last time I remember it working correctly was on 3.3
