iPega Wireless Bluetooth 3.0 Game Controller came today off ebay half the price of others :victory: was going to use it with my android phone
it also works with most phones with bluetooth and came with no drivers or software to install so easy to use :p or it should have been with the
four modes it has icade, keyboard, mouse andjoy sticks :good: charged fine inless then 30 mins :D
i got this one as it holds the phone even with my phone cover on it as removing it every time i use the pad would be a pain :rolleyes:
so ive tryed it out on mame emu and a few games and changed all the keys to the buttons on the pad .
The dpad worked fine so did the joy sticks but wont see the X A B Y buttons or the L1 R1 buttons in any of the modes also tryed it on the
games ipega list no joy :crying:
the phone see the bluetooth pad fine and see the button presses fine as well ive looked online for software to help with the pad but no joy :p
im sure the problem will be sorted soon by some one soon...:eek:
ive tryed it with a few of the bluetooth pad setup tools most dont see it or not setup for it yet :fingers-crossed:
any push with any ideas how to sort this would help...
ive got three you tube videos showing it just look for Ipega Bluetooth controller game pad and yes im welsh...:D

Yeah got one of these myself the other day (Galaxy S3 LTE). Great for emulators, seems to work fine with MD.Emu.

Confusing problem with GTA: Vice City though.

I had the controller working fine with it then all of a sudden it's just stopped working, now just the movement keys (DPad and Analogue) working :(

It would be nice to have a confirmed list of working games with this controller though, out of the box.

(Set to Joystick Mode)
I have MD.Emu
Sonic 4 episode 1
Dead Trigger

All working fine.

I have been messing with Game Keyboard, an app where you can assign buttons to on screen key presses, not had much luck though it's quite frustrating!

Anyone else have experience with this app?

Could someone please elaborate on how the D-pad, L/R buttons, and A/B/X/Y buttons actually feel? How do they compare to the PSP, Xperia Play, or JXD S602 controls?

I'm also afraid of latency since this is a Bluetooth controller -- are the controls super responsive, or do you feel some lag?

D pad feels fine, so do the other buttons. I haven't noticed any lag at all.

Only thing that lets this controller down is the analogue sticks, they work... but don't feel great. I could play dead trigger... Just!

Right the dpad and keys all feel like an old nitendo pad and the joy sticks are ok nothing like xbox or playstation 2-3 controller but well worth £15 on amazon :) and yes a bit of lag but thats down to using drivers not made for it and you soon get used to the lag and adjust...

I have the same phone and the same gamepad. So at one time, vice city worked with this gamepad? That's been my only disappointment. I'm guessing a vice city update caused the problems. I've only ever been able to get the analogs to work.

Thats funny, I've been using it with no drivers, and have zero lag to speak of. I'm using it on a stock gs3 (4.11) and have played Shadowgun, Dead Trigger, PCE emulator, and the 2 mame4droid emulators without issue. I just pair it in gamepad mode and go.

I have 2 other phone gamepads and this one has zero latency issues by comparison. My MSI GP100 would lag like crazy. Overall, this is my favorite gamepad for phones yet.

The buttons are great. No problems whatsoever, satisfying click and sturdy feeling.

The analogs I can best compare to the psp, but stiffer and less comfortable. The texture bumps wear on my thumbs and my hands get cramped.

Comfort and the lack of 4 shoulder buttons are the only downfalls to this gamepad. Otherwise it's great.

Thanks for the info, i'm on 4.1.2 so hoping it will work out of the box, what button combination is it to pair as gamepad? i've ordered mine but it's coming from HK so will take a while. Will update with my thoughts when I recieve it
