Issue: Spontaneous random directional input over Bluetooth.



  • Hi Nefarius!

    First of all thanks a lot for all the work you put into this!

    I feel bad that I need to report this issue, although you stated in your FAQ that random input is a hardware issue.
    However, I tested two genuine Dual Shock 3 controllers which usually work without issues and did so days ago with SCP toolkit.
    Additionally I tested the controllers on the same hardware, i.e. same Bluetooth dongle, booting into Linux. There I cannot observe this issue.

    When the controller is connected via Bluetooth and I play a game, spontaneous directional input events occur in intervals of 10-60 seconds.
    Of course, that makes it unusable via Bluetooth. Wired via USB does not exhibit this issue.
    I looked around the forum a bit and also on Github, but I could not find anything related to this issue that is recent.

    Is this issue already known to you? Is there something I can do about this, some kind of workaround you know of?
    In case you are looking into this, let me know if I can provide any additional information.

  • Very good summary!

    Odd, this typically only happens when rogue packets float along, I thought I ported everything necessary to combat it, I'll think of something. Might need you for tests.

    Cheers



  • Hey, thanks for the response!

    Sure, let me know if there is something I can do or test and also if you need any additional information.

    Regards!



  • Hi Angrond and Nefarius! Confirm the problem. Please let me know if there is something I can do or test also.

    btw respect for your work, Nefarius!



  • Hm, must consult the unholy SCP sources once again then. There's an invalid packet sent over BTH but I was a 100% confident that I fixed that in Shibari... hm, will take a 2nd look I guess 🤔
