Re: MISTer (Main Core)

I tested a couple wireless 360 controllers in the past.
Everything worked except the right stick was not recognized.
That was several mister and Linux versions back.
I will try it again after work in a few hours and see if I get the same results.

Re: Direct Bluetooth gamepad support

For anyone still not sure, the suggestion is to copy and rename update.sh, and then make a matching .ini file containing the desired options (the uncommented line in this case) as an override. Then run the custom updater only when you want to upgrade the full Linux system, and the regular updater o...

8bitdo gamepads according to manual should automatically turn off after some inactivity period (10 or 15 mins), but it seems not the case when 8bitdo receiver is used. I've started to use generic BT receiver and now automatic shutdown works. This is good because i always forget to turn gamepad off ...
