4.1 bluetooth pairing persistency issue?
@valvolt I have the FC30 arcade stick, worked flawlessly.
@oyyodams quoting my post above ;) I have one SNES30 (the one looking like a US pad with purple buttons) and one SFC30 (the one looking like a JP / EU pad with colored buttons). These are 'classic' pads (regular SNES pads, not the Pro version with the sticks). Same problem with both pads. They both worked well before v 4.1 when started with R+Start.
@Substring ok, so maybe that's a specific issue ?
I know you've already tried many things, but could you start the whole process again ?
- Upgrade to the latest 8bitdo firmware
- In ES, forget all your BT devices
- Factory reset your SFC30: START for 8 seconds
- Power it off if necessary, then turn it on. Hit Select for 3 seconds to enter pairing mode.
- In ES, try to associate it again
@OyyoDams Wow, I think that you nailed it !
I finally managed to get the SFC30 working after a firmware upgrade (my version was 2.67, since your URL stops at 2.62 I looked around - and found version 3.0 here: http://download.8bitdo.com/Firmware/GamePad/)
Everything worked like a charm: I could start the pad with Start (only), pair it, configure it and use it in a game.
I'm now doing the same with the SNES30, a priori I can use the same firmware. There is no reason this should fail.
Keep up the excellent work !
@valvolt hey thanks for your feedback, I'm very happy for you!
Also thanks for the firmware link... 8bitdo have really good products but poor websites and documentations :(
Happy gaming ;)
Hi all. I have been reading the post because I am having the same issue with a 8bitdo gamepad, in my case the zero one.
Recalbox recognize it but it can not be paired. I followed this wiki link:
and all the directions in this post, but when I select the device, I always receive the same message, it can not be paired.
@valvolt, the link you shared with the firmware, does it work for 8bitdo zero?
Thank you guys
But be carefull, not sure which one can be used with this pad.
@pmroyo Don’t forget that you need to start you gamepad with the combo “START+R”, and to reboot the pairing record of it as stated on the wiki page you linked.
Thank you guys, I forgot about the firmware then.
Talking about the process, I follow these steps:
1- Remove all paired devices in recalbox
2- Press select in the gamepad for 8 seconds to reset it
3- Switch it on with Start+R
4- Press select for 3 seconds to access pairing mode
5- Then, search for new devices in recalbox
I have tried also without step 4 , but the result is the same, recalbox find the gamepad but it can not be paired.
As the main gamepad, I am using a Gamesir T1S with a wifi dongle, could it be interfering into the process?
@pmroyo did you try with the 'manual' way ?
What works and what does not?
@pmroyo you(d better reboot once you forgot paired devices. It sometimes confuses the bluetooth stack
