Retroarch Dualshock 4

The Sony PlayStation 4 Dualshock 4 is a very well made controller. It feels solid and has an excellent D-Pad. It has wireless functionality and can charge its internal battery via Micro USB. There are a few ways to use the Dualshock 4 with the Raspberry Pi. Steam has a few advantages over Retroarch, in the sense it can launch external programs with ease. For native-steam games, nothing at all is required for it to work. Steam automatically detects the dual shock 4 controllers, and works without issues in big picture mode. For my emulated games, a solution is required to display them in steam. RetroArch + btstack alone worked perfectly for me with my DS3, on 8.1.2. I would assume on 8.4 after BTstack and RetroArch are all updated it will continue to work the same way./QUOTE That’s what I did, you can also change button mapping in retroarch inside frontend.

Dualshock 3 controller on pc
  • Hello Everyone,
    I have been searching hi and low and am need of some expert help. The issue I am having is once I pair my Dual Shock 4 controller over bluetooth it works until I go to a game.

    Now, interestingly enough it will work in the game (If I turn off and re-pair the controller). It seems to behave like this in WIRED configuration too. So it is no isolated to bluetooth. Here is what I have been able to gather.

    1. The controller works fine in Emulation station
    2. Once I go to a game (retroarch specifc emulator) the emulator start up, sees the controller (there is a message at the bottom auto load config) and it stops working until I re-pair.. It will continue to work fine until I do one of the following. A) Exit the game. B) Go to the retroarch menu… It actually works fine in the menu but stops working when I resume the game. Then I have to turn it off and re-pair it again.
    3. Interesting enough, once re-paired and I exit the game via the hot key, the controller works just fine in emulation station and in emulators that are not retroarch.

    I have a RP2 , and tried using 3.3 and 3.4 versions of Wheezy. I have not found the strength to start all over with Jessie yet.

    I hope someone else has seen this before and can point me in the right direction.

    Other important notes.
    1. I followed the guide here to get it working: http://www.petrockblock.com/forums/topic/tutorial-retropie-with-dualshock-4-and-bluetooth/
    2. I had issues getting controller configs to work properly and added the configs to the contollers to the retroarch.cfg manually.

    Thank you all for your time and a big thanks to all involved in this wonderful project.

    I’m having the exact same problem with my four DS4 controllers. I managed to get the first two working by setting up the hotkeys manually in RetroArch, but for some reason controllers 3 & 4 never seem to work in RetroArch emulated games.

    Just like you, all four of my DS4 controllers work perfectly fine in EmulationStation. Then you load up a PSX game, it says the Sony Computer Entertainment Wireless Controller is Configured to Port #X” where X is 0 to 4 respectively for each controller. However I cannot for the life of me seem to get the 3rd and 4th controllers to respond in RetroArch emulated games.

    When configuring controllers through RetroArch, make sure you go to, “Settings” > “Configuration” > “Save Configuration On Exit” – Otherwise none of your changes will be saved when you close RetroArch.

    I have tried to configure the 3rd and 4th controllers this way, and the buttons react like I am configuring them, but they still don’t work in-game. It’s extremely frustrating and I have exhausted every option I can think of.

    Seriously if anyone has ANY idea what to do, please help us.

    this isn’t libretro/retroarch issue. pcsx-rearmed (the playstation emulator) does not support 3/4 player controllers: https://github.com/notaz/pcsx_rearmed/issues/43

    your controllers should work fine in libretro mame cores. consoles like the snes need a special configuration to support 3/4 players (it’s in the wiki/forums)

    Ahhh, okay that makes sense. I spent so much time trying to configure it to get it to work, and it wasn’t even possible, haha. Thank you very much for spending the time to reply and let me know.

    When you try to run:
    sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends joystick checkinstall bluez-utils bluez-compat bluez-hcidump libusb-dev libbluetooth-dev

    Does it give you an error with bluez-utils? (Removing it from the command will cause it to tell you bluez-compat doesn’t work either)
    Try this instead, and then follow the guide like normal:

    sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends joystick checkinstall bluez bluez-hcidump libusb-dev libbluetooth-dev
