    [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.

    Exactly the same problem for me word-for-word… I haven’t yet had time to investigate.
    Shall be watching this closely to see if you get a reply :)
    I’ll let you know if I figure it out.

    I have just tried this on a fresh install of RetroPie V3 and it errors too, admittedly a different error.
    As per the below, I can scan and find the device and also ping it…

    pi@retropie ~ $ /etc/init.d/bluetooth status
    [ ok ] bluetooth is running.
    pi@retropie ~ $ hcitool dev
    hci0 5C:F3:70:6C:71:5A
    pi@retropie ~ $ sudo l2ping -c 1 FE:FC:7C:AD:9F:FE

    When trying to connect my SFC30 to RetroPie 3.0 on my Pi2, I receive the following error –
    ERROR:dbus.proxies:Introspect error on :1.3:/: dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

    I have followed the instructions above to the letter, am able to scan and locate the mac address of the controller but receive the error after typing –
    pi@retropie ~ $ sudo bluez-simple-agent hci0 00:00:00:00:00:00(mac address)

    I have updated the firmware on the controller and I am using a Belkin Bluetooth 4.0 dongle that works with Ps3 controllers. (Have tried 3 others)

    Any suggestions??
    Would love to get this working as my pi is now inside an old SNES and this completes it.
