Hello,
I currently have the psmoveapi on a Raspberry Pi 3.
This was built/installed as part of the install of JoustMania (https://github.com/adangert/JoustMania), though I don't believe that is necessarily relevant to the issue I am seeing.

I have several of the newest PSMove controllers (with Micro USB connections), and they do not appear to be detected by or able to be paired by the psmoveapi. I have run psmove list and confirmed that my bluetooth adapter (TBW-106UB) is being detected correctly. However when I run psmove pair it returns the message "Connected controllers: 0"

I have confirmed that the controllers are fully charged, and when connected to a Windows 10 computer with the same cable, the controllers are connected and installed as expected.

Are these newest controllers supported by psmoveapi, or am I doing something incorrectly?

Doing some more research on this issue, this seems to be a big deal over with the PSMoveService team as well. It would seem that these new controllers have a new PID as well as possible changes to the protocol.
Hopefully this is something that can be resolved, or I need to go and return the 3 pair of new controllers I just picked up... :(

Sadly, I only acquired the new controllers to work with JoustMania, and since they currently cannot do so, I have returned them and picked up some version 1 controllers which will.
However, I did want to make sure this was on the radar since I had not seen an issue raised yet for it.
I also know some other devs working on the issue now, so hopefully they can get some traction on it.

I have ordered one of these controllers and can report back once I receive those and have started playing around.

Also note that not all "PS4" PS Move controllers are actually Micro-USB controllers, some are still repackaged PS3 controllers (Mini-USB), e.g. the ones with "CECH-ZCM1E" as their part number.

As an example, this PS Move "PS4" Controller pack seems to be still the PS3 variant:

20086283

In other words:

  • Supported (same as PS3): CECH-ZCM1E
  • Not (yet) supported (Micro-USB): CECH-ZCM2J

I now have a CECH-ZCM2J. As a first quick test, updating the PID to the new value lets me set the controllers' color via USB + pair it. Bluetooth connection is unstable, but it might be due to low battery, let's see (currently charging it up, I just received and unpacked it..).

Edit: Sorry, I just misread the first time. I drank some caffeine between then and now and I see it in your comment that yes it was done over USB.
