CDi BT Controller Adapter Available at SAG

Stone Age Gamer is now selling the Philips CDi bluetooth controller adapter previously discussed here.  These adapters combine bluepad32 with TwBurn’s controller library and support quite a few controllers.  Unfortunately, there’s no bluetooth mouse support, but hopefully that’ll come via a firmware update.

Purchase yours here:  https://retrorgb.link/cdibluetoothsag
Main project site:  https://cdibluetooth.com/
Bluepad32 compatibility list:  https://gitlab.com/ricardoquesada/bluepad32/-/blob/main/docs/supported_gamepads.md

Here’s the list of compatible adapters, at least at the time of this post.  Please check the link above for updates, but I wanted to post it here for easy reference:

  • DualSense (PS5)
  • DUALSHOCK 4 (PS4) controller, both 2013 and 2016 editions
  • DUALSHOCK 3 (PS3) controller
  • Nintendo Switch Pro controller
  • Nintendo Switch JoyCons
  • Nintendo Wii U Pro controller
  • Nintendo Wii Remote and Remote Motion Plus, including Nunchuk and Classic Controller
  • Xbox Wireless controller (model 1708)
  • 8BitDo controllers
  • Android controllers
  • iCade controllers
  • Nimbus SteelSeries
  • OUYA controllers
  • Some TV remote controls, like the Amazon Fire TV

I received mine awhile back, but still haven’t used it.  I’m planning another CDi stream very soon and I plan on starting by demoing the pairing process.  I’m looking forward to trying it out…as well as a new homebrew game!  Check back soon for more info.
