I am using a PS3 controller clone (model “CECHZC2U) with Retropie 3.5 in a Berryboot -environment.
I installed the controller via the setup script, using the 2nd option “clone support gasia”.
Now, when I connect the USB cable, wait a few secs and then disconnect & press the P3 button, the controller connects and all works well.
However, after a reboot, the controller refuses to be paired, unless I connect & remove the USB cable first.
For other types of Bluetooth controllers, I’ve read somwehere that there is a file where you can make the controller “trusted” so it will auto pair upon reboot. Is there such a file or setting for this controller which I am overlooking?
The problem also exists in a “standalone” SD card installation, I tried that as well.
Anyone else having the same issue?
Thanks for your reply. That tells me that buying a genuine controller would not solve the issue.
It used to work like a charm in Retropie 3.1 where I had to add the controller software (I believe sixad and sixpair) manually, however in that configuration the controller would disconnect after 10 minutes idle and would only reconnect upon a system reboot.
