Hi everyone, new to Picade, have it up and running and configured with Retropie and the usual games, I was just wondering is it possible to play 2 player mode with something like a wireless PS3 controller?
In my experience PS3 controllers are a huge pain to get up and running with anything but a PS3. I actually use a couple with my laptop on a regular basis because I don’t want to have to buy new controllers.
You’d be better with a more traditional Bluetooth controller, and IMO even better with a wired one for the least painful setup experience.
But if, like me, you want to forge ahead with the PS3 controller you already have, see here: https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/PS3-Controller
Thanks for your information, im not very tech savy so i might try getting a different controller ! is a traditional bluetooth controller hard to set up for use with Picade?
RetroPi has a UI for configuring a Bluetooth controller, so it should be straight-forward enough: https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/Bluetooth-Controller
Looking at the PS3 guide compared to the regular Bluetooth guide is very telling :D
If you look at the right-hand side of the RetroPie wiki and scroll right down you’ll see a list of guides for setting up specific controllers, such as Wiimotes, Wii U Pro Controllers, PS4 controllers, 8bitdo, etc etc.
great thanks again for your info, just wondering any decent bluetooth controller you would recommend?
