If you have been following my articles, you might have bumped into my previous HOW-TO post about the IPEGA gamepad controller setup from my other blog.
Some were able to successfully set up their IPEGA gamepad controller by installing the official “IPEGA Game Center_ENG.apk“. While some of those who tried failed.
I am not sure what and why. But there’s always this possibility that the mobile device they are pairing with the IPEGA gamepad controller isn’t compatible at all. However, my game enthusiast friend once again found a way.
You can now pair your mobile device with an IPEGA gamepad controller without installing any apps. And that’s what we will show you today.
Are you one of those young at heart and loves to play online or offline games? Games like those new Nintendo 3DS XL and Wii U games. If you are, then I am sure you will enjoy more playing games on your mobile with an IPEGA gamepad controller.
Although there are other controllers like the Moga Pro Power gamepad controller I reviewed last year which I think is also cool and neat to use. In any case, there’s only one main key to why I and others use a gamepad controller. And that is to have better control of the game.
Moreover, having a gamepad controller setup makes it more convenient and less intrusive. As opposed to swiping and tapping directly the screen display UI controllers. The “real-feel” isn’t just there. If you know what I mean. 🙂
So much for the introduction and without further adieu, I will be letting you now check the steps below and watch the video so that you can have fun with your IPEGA game controller.
How to set up IPEGA gamepad controller without any apps
- First (and also important), you have to DELETE the installed IPEGA Game Center app from your device OR any 3rd-party gamepad controller app from your mobile to avoid any conflicts.
- Then on your IPEGA gamepad controller (PG-9025), press and hold the X and HOME buttons simultaneously. Wait until the RED LED is blinking.
- Once the red LED is blinking, you can now pair it with your device.
That’s it! You can now test it by opening any games from your app drawer. In our video below, we will be showing you the Android game app called Beach Buggy Blitz. And in this game, you will see that we’re able to use the IPEGA gamepad controller.
You can try to pair first your mobile device with IPEGA using this non-app dependent setup. But if your device can’t recognize your gamepad controller or fails to pair, then you can try using the official app I’ve mentioned above.
Now if everything fails, then check with your supplier. I am sure you don’t want to spend your precious money on a device you can’t use in the end.
Let us know if the steps above work on your IPEGA gamepad controller.
