Cannot connect Ipega 9021
I'm trying to make my
Ipega 9021bluetooth controller work. But I simply won't. I've seen that support for it has been added with 4.0.0-b4 (I'm running 4.0.2). My Bluetooth dongle is the
CSL - V4.0 USB nano. I can pair the controller with my recalbox. But it won't pair automatically wenn turning the controller off and on again and I can't configure the controller as it's not recognized...
PS: I've seen two other posts in this forum on this, but the didn't help me...
connect only your gamepad mode gamepad not keyboard mode and disconnect keyboard and mouse.
and post your archive recalbox-support.sh : https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Recalbox-support-(EN)
Thanks for the hint. The gamepad is already in gamepad mode. But how do I enter the config menu when I disconnect the keyboard? I can disconnect it on the screen that tells me to long press any button on my gamepad. But still the gamepad isn't recognized. Interestingly the home button and the media control buttons on the gamepad (if long pressed) trigger the keyboard config to pop up...

Update: I can make it work using the controller in keyboard mode. But
- I don't want to change the keyboard bindings (just in case I mess up things I'd like to be able to fallback to a keyboard).
- The hotkey does not work inside the SNES-Emulator.
Strange: The controller does only reconnect if starting it in pairing mode (i.e. HOME+A) but not on normal power up (i.e. only HOME).
By manually updating
/etc/udev/rules.d/99-joysticks-exotics.rulesto https://raw.githubusercontent.com/recalbox/recalbox-buildroot/master/board/recalbox/fsoverlay/etc/udev/rules.d/99-joysticks-exotics.rules I could make it work!
EDIT 1: The only thing that still does not work is the
hotkey. I bindend
selectto be the hotkey (because HOME+SOME BUTTONS have a controller internal binding). Any ideas what could be the problem here?
EDIT 2: I just noticed that the
startbutton of the controller also does not work.
Ok. I made it work now completely (including
selectbuttons) by setting
global.inputdriver=sdl2in the config. Thus, this thread can be closed.
