    Myself, and others are having this same issue with the same setup.

    Hoping for a proper fix soon, until then I just went back to using my pi2.

    I just wanted to chime in that I recently updated to 3.4, completely removed sixad and re-installed. Unfortunately I still have the same problem as you.

    enable_timeout 1
    timeout_mins 15 (or any value)

    Still no longer works.

    I am having the same issue. The odd thing is, I do remember this working at one time (a few releases back). Thanks for the suggestion as well herbfargus, but no luck for me either. Really wish I could resolve this :-)

    If you don’t mind me asking, what emulator on Retropie are you able to get Tron to run on? I am using lr-Mame2003 and the game loads fine, but for the life of me I cant get it to insert a credit. Most of the other games work fine, but Tron and a few of the arly Midway games I have the same issue. Thanks for your time.

    majerle9, thank you so much for this. I just recently updated my rp2 to retropie 3.1 (from 3.0 beta and have used other builds prior), because I ended up getting a larger (128 gig) micro sd. Prior to this version, I never had any issues with my dualshock 3 pairing properly at startup, or re-pairing after turning it of manually (holding the ps button for 10 seconds). As soon as I upgraded the build to 3.1 (from scratch, fresh image etc….) I could only get the dualshock to pair wireless properly after the initial setup. After that, if I shut down or re-started the pi2 it was random at best, and if I turned it off manually it would *never* re-pair.

    adding these two lines to /etc/rc.local (above zero)fixed everything perfectly!

    hciconfig device up
    hciconfig enable pscan

    I wish I understood what these two commands actually technically told the rc.local file to do, but it fixed all my issues. If anyone wants to enlighten me, I would appreciate it :-)

    I have also noticed as of this build (to me at least, and with my controller and setup), adding a delay “sleep” timer to the emulationstation script is no longer necessary after your game pad has been configured with emulation station at least once. After this, if you are in emulationstation well before the dualshock 3 is paired, and it has already been configured, all you have to do is hold down one button on the gamepad and it will go right into emulationstation without asking you to reconfigure it like previous versions. Has anyone else noticed or tried this? It should be documented because its a pretty fantastic new feature of the Retropie build (if it already has been mentioned, I apologize). Anyways, thank you again….and to Floob/Herbfargus and everyone who ever worked/works so hard on this project, and has helped me (via forum or videos) :-)
