    Note: You can use any controller, but this tutorial will only describe the steps to do it with a gamecube controller + official gamecube controller adapter. Anyway, only the first step is related with the controller. The other steps are the same for every controller.

    Special thanks to Stary2001 and @KazoWAR for this awesome tool.

    Requirements:
    Recomended:
    Steps:
    1. Install the driver of the Official gamecube controller adapter in your pc (there's a lot of tutorials on the internet, so please google) and run it.
    2. Configure Xpadder (It's pretty easy with a noob-proof GUI). Remember the keys you choose for each button.

    Now you have to choose an option

    NTR CFW (recommended - better compatibility )
    3. In your 3DS install InputRedirectionNTR.cia.
    4. Run NTR CFW, press X+Y and select "Enable Debugger"
    5. Run the installed CIA.

    Homebrew Launcher (not recommended - worse compatibility)
    3. In your 3DS install InputProc.cia and put the 3ds folder in the root of your sd card In
    4. Run The Homebrew Launcher and launch input_loader.
    5. Press start and then x to return to the home menu


    6. Now in your PC, go to the PC Client and open InputRedirection NTR.exe (InputRedirection .exe if you chose the HBL option)
    7. Press F1 to set your 3DS IP address (use wireless network watcher or ftpbrony to know it) and then ESC
    8. Press F2 to set the key for each button of your 3ds (you can use Xpadder to remember what keys you used for the gamecube controller). To do it, first you have to press the pre-selected key, and then press the new key for each button. Once you're ready press ESC.
    9. Test the controls (also, you can press F4 to show debug information).
    10. Enjoy

    Nice, thanks for the guide. Wish this was ported as a patch for BootNTR to use with RemotePlay capabilities :)

    Xpadder requires payment to download it. Unless there's a free option I haven't found.

    If you're using this for Sm4sh, you may as well play the Wii U copy, since you're tethered to a PC anyway. That or Dolphin and a copy of Project M 3.6, or better yet, Smash Bros. Legacy or Legacy XP, when it releases.

    Does it work with DS games and on 3ds? And does it work with other controllers?

    I have the driver installed, but I don't understand how to input buttons for x360ce, getting no response with anything.

    No, it won't work with DS games, unless if the games/roms are on an emulator. Yes, it works with other controllers, like the XBOX 360 Controller.

    Don't forget to credit Stary2001 since this is mostly his work, I just forked what he had, made some tweaks, and released a build.

    I can make a NTR version. all the backround process does is writes the input data it receives remotely to a static address. and the patched HID reads that data for the input. NTR debugger can write the same data to the same address and it will work the same.

    you can bot in a limited way already using a program like autohoykey, with no input from the system you can do egg hatching, or chain captures just need to time stuff out correctly. but I am also thinking about trying making a special program for botting that can read memory from the system to know when certain things happen.

    also you should be able to use any kind of gamepad to keyboard program.
