PS3 USB enumeration - resolved
« on: 27/Feb/2012 12:11:59 PM »
Hi,

I read on the following blog post that "the usb#->ps3 controller # mapping can be changed in the menu as well"
http://www.retrode.org/2012/01/retrode-on-linuxps3dockstar/

Can anybody let me know exactly how I do that. I have only changed the number on regular PS3 controllers using the PS/home button and menu. How do I do this for USB controllers?

Thanks,
matt

Your best bet would be to contact Hunter, the author of the original article.
http://www.retrode.org

I no longer sell the Retrode. For sales inquiries, please contact our friends at DragonBox.

Hunter makes no mention of changing the controller order in his article, it's only referenced in Felix's blog post.

Part of the post was based on an email from hunter

I sent part to you via PM

I would recommend contacting hunter and if need be I can amend my post

My ps3 is defunct so I can't really check

Sorry

:(

Hunter couldn't shed any light, so I've been looking into this myself.

The good news is that XMB Settings allows reassignment of controller numbers for any controller. :)

To get to it:
1. Press the PS Home Button on any PS3 controller to get to the XMB menu
2. Go to across Settings
3. Go down to Accessory Settings
4. Go down to Reassign Controllers
5. Press the fire button on the controller you want to reassign
6. Use up and down to change the assigned number of the controller you are using, and press fire to accept
7. Press PS3 Home Button to step out of the menu and return to the game/emulator

http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/settings/assign.html

Note:
To use Megadrive controllers, the Retrode may need to be in mode 2 (2Joy)
Please confirm in your emulator that your joystick settings are correct.

Case Study: Amiga on PS3
E-UAE emulator defaults to it's emulated ports being mapped to Mouse and Joystick 1.
Put the Retrode in mode 2 and plug Amiga joystick into the right hand Megadrive port.
Reassign the Amiga joystick as PS3 controller 1 using the method above.
Play Sensible World of Soccer on my PS3 with an Amiga joystick. :)

Thanks for looking into it Matt. At the moment we are looking for tutorials on getting the Retrode 2 to work on the different systems, and this looks like a very good start for a PS3 tutorial.
