Any way to play Bayonetta without the Game-Pad being on?

    When I start the game a message pops up that my controller is not connected, my WiiU Pro controller is connected at that time. That message won't go away until I connect my Game-Pad.

    Is there any way to avoid this? The Game-Pad has the worst battery I have ever seen in my life (!) and I don't want to take out my battery cable every time just to play that game and load that useless shitty piece of plastic.. Is there an option I did not see?

    It's a stupid problem, with no way around. There's an option to turn off the gamepad display, saving a little bit of battery, but it's still a pain in the ass. Bayonetta 2 doesn't have the problem weirdly enough. Though you should really pick up the extended gamepad battery from the nintendo online store, it's a huge difference.

    Thanks for your fast reply.

    Damn, that's really to bad. The problem is that I don't use it at all and don't want to spend money on this useless device.
    But thanks, now I know that I overlooked nothing in the options. Thought I was to stupid to find it. :-)

    I bought the Official Nintendo Higher Capacity Battery for my GamePad back in February 2015 from Amazon France and somehow it doesn't seem to last for too long, actually it looks as though it takes way longer to charge and rather somewhat too quickly to become empty again. It's strange because it felt like it used to hold up for long periods of time.

    Currently speaking I'm only using the Wii U to watch Netflix and without the GamePad there's no way around controlling it unfortunately. I did try the Wii U Pro Controller which doesn't work with it nor the Wiimote.. this is such bullshit that I have to use a fake tablet with a terrible battery life to control something as simple as picking a show/movie.

    There are so few games that use the gamepad well enough for it to be worth the insane amount of money it costs. It feels cheap, the screen is trash, but for some reason all these games and apps require it. Ugh.

    My room is set up where I can have the gamepad charging right next to me while using the Wii U pro. So I wouldn't have to worry about low battery, but it doesn't excuse the gamepad itself. It's interesting to view porn in it, but that's about it. Is there a way to turn off display on Smash 4? I never caught how to do it, and the gamepad stays on while I'm using the GC controller.

    1) Turn off the display.
    2) Turn off the GamePad using the sync or the ON/OFF button trick.
