GEN GAME S5 Bluetooth support

  • Hi,
    First of all I would like to congratulate you all for the great work you are doing with Recalbox. It's my first experience with retro games emulation and I'm really impressed. I've been playing for some time with virtual gamepad until I decided to try with a phisical pad.
    So, as I have a GEN GAME S5 bluetooth controller for my android table, I am trying to make it work on Recalbox 18.02.09, running on a Rpi3 and using it's internal bluetooth. I've successfully paired the controller, and it appears as "PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller" in /proc/bus/input/devices file. I can even see it listed in EmulatioStation's "CONFIGURE INPUTS" menu.
    However, nothing happens when I press its buttons. Not in EmulatioStation menu nor when playing games.
    I've also tried to check the events generated by the controller with sdl2-jstest, but nothing seems to be happening (or maybe I am using it the wrong way).
    Can you suggest me any idea on how to detect what is happening?

    Thanks a lot!

    P.S. I've generated a recalbox-support file at
