    I thought I'd set up a GIT Repository to store all user-created Nintendont controller-configurations.

    Currently there are the default ones + DRaGMaRe's configuration for the Trio Linker v1. Feel free to provide new ones, if you have a GitHub-Account you can send me a pull-request, instead of a forum-post here, too.

    Please only post questions regarding or controller-configurations here, not about Nintendont or whatever (there are plenty of threads already).

    You can find the GIT Repository here: https://github.com/Nanolx/nintendont-controller

    Now we need someone who writes a short how-to for hidtest.

    Thanks to DRaGMaRe I finally got a clue and added a new configuration to the Repo:

    Mayflash Wireless Wii Controller to USB Adapter

    I used the right Z as Z, HOME as Power, else the buttons as labelled.

    The Mayflash GameCube to USB Adapter does *not* work with Nintendont (no response at all).

    I recommend using an existing configuration as reference (for button names etc). First test if your device is supported: press any button / move a stick and the values shown on the bottom of HID-Test should change, if they don't, your device is not supported (do this, without a sd:/controller.ini).

    For example, if no button is pressed, the MayFlash Wii Classic Controller to USB Adapter gives:
    7A 8A 86 2F 00 0F 00 00

    Now pressing some buttons changes it to:
    74 8A 86 2F 00 0F 20 00

    As you can see offset 6 (it starts from 0, not 1) changed to value 20, so in the controller.ini you would write (say it's button A):

    A=6,20

    So you write the offset (6) and the value (20). Analog Sticks only need offset, not value. Example pressing right analog stick to the right:
    FF 8A 86 2F 00 0F 20 00

    As you can see offset null changed, so you would write:

    CStickX=0

    As CStick is the right analog, the left analog would be Stick (X and Y as per axis).

    Once you created your controller.ini restart HID-Test with sd:/controller.ini. Now at the bottom HID-Test will show all available buttons (except power). Now then you press a button HID-Test should show that button pressed, if nothing happens or a wrong button is shown pressed, edit your controller.ini.

    If the dpad does not work change DPAD=0 to DPAD=1 and fill additional values for diagonal directions (RightUp etc..., see available configurations as reference).

    Once everything is fine, post your configuration here in order for it to be included in my repository.

    HID-Test is bundled with Nintendont.

    Nintendont saysa that's Zelda only version.
    Does that mean i gotta get Zelda first?
    If not then can i run HIDTEST on the Wii and test it out? http://crediar.no-ip.com/HIDTestv4.rar

    HID-Test is a standalone App and has nothing to do with games. Nintendont has HIT-Test 5 bundled, so download Nintendont and use the HID-Test that comes with it.

    Assuming "HBL" uses the same standard as the homebrew channel, all applications must be in this format:
    X:\apps\{name of app}\boot.dol
    So just copying the folder over would leave you with
    X:\apps\HIDTest\HIDTest.dol
    rename HIDTest.dol to boot.dol

    Good evening. First of all, thank you very much for helping us out to set up our controllers, Excelsiior. One of my biggest dreams is to play Nintendo Puzzle Collection with a decent controller (PS1 No analogs, my favourite controller for almost everything), so I'm trying to use my Steren adapter, which has two ports, and so far, HIDTest is recognizing the second port only, I hope you don't mind a few questions about this: 1.- Is there a way to use the two ports of my adapter? This is the one I'm using:
    [​IMG]

    It's made by Steren, model PS2-030;

    2.- As far as I can remember, each analog (Of a PS2 controller) gives me two offsets at the same time (0 & 1 if I remember right), what to do in that case?;

    3.- I apologize in advance if this is kinda offtopic, but, is there any way this could be incorporated to SNES9XGX and/or FCEUGX? That would be beyond amazing.

    Thank you for your answer in advance.

    ok im curious, in these controller.ini files, there's a line that says "Polltype=#"
    what is that?

    anyway, finally finished figuring out how this thing works (the general stuff at least, thanks to this forum)

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/854695/controller_wiiccprousb.ini

    this controller setting is for the Mayflash Wii Classic Controller Pro USB adapter when it's set to POV mode (more info here)
    this is the button mappings. the rest of the buttons are pretty self explanatory

    Edit: actually, im not entirely sure if i have done everything correctly... i'll have to keep messing with it to find out.

    I added your config to the repository.

    If your controller is recognized, you don't need to mess around with Polltype.

    1) I don't know if it is possible to use both adapters, it depends on Nintendont, not the hardware.
    2) that only seems like that, because one is the X and one the Y axis, you can't precisly only trigger one. hit the stick to outmost right or down position, the axis showing a high value (FF) is the one you need to fill in the config.
    3) in theory yes, but since Nintendont is not open source Tantric would have to develop his own HID module in order to support the controllers

    Thank you very much for your answers! Thanks to your help, I almost finished my controller.ini, which I'm uploading here now. Just one thing: Could you please disable LAnalog and RAnalog in the way you find most convenient? By default, they have a value of 0, but as you can see, that's already the value for my StickX, so I assigned them to L3 and R3, but I guess it would be pointless anyways, since those buttons are not analog at all. I also upload a guide for the buttons with this adapter, in case anyone needs to remap.

    Oh, and one more question: Is this controller.ini supposed to work with Nintendon't now as it is? Or I would have to wait for Crediar to add support for my adapter using this values? I'm asking because right now I can't get any HID input on my Wii, so I'd like to know if I'm doing something wrong. Thank you again in advance.
