Hi, I bought two generic PS3 joysticks and I can't pair them with the Raspberry Pi3 model B (which has recalbox latest Beta version 8.0). I've tried connecting them using an USB cable for 10 seconds and then holding the PS button with no luck. I can navigate the EmulationStation menu but they don't work inside the games. I've also tried with the bluez, official and shanwan configurations. According to the joystick's lights it's always the 5th controller even though it's the only one connected.
I used Putty to find out which clone they were, this is the result:
