These controllers now fully work with Batocera (v36) from 22nd December build however in BT mode there is a slight issue we have to address.
Workaround from the terminal / ssh:
scan on to get a list of controllers to pair, you need the mac address
then type one after the other:
pair <mac address>
trust <mac address>
connect <mac address>
exit to exit
Batocera will now automatically connect that controller. We’ll fix it in the GUI soon.
Alternatively, running in 2.4Ghz with the adaptor is the quick answer.
