I have on dualsense controller, no ps5 though. it's connected to my nvidia shield. if I get a second, I'll definitely try this. the dualsense is one of the most well constructed controllers I've seen. perfect weight, buttons feel good, etc. it's far better than the ps4 controller imo.

I'm a bit confused. HIDtoVPAD is for wired controllers, and Bloopair is for Bluetooth controllers. Right?

Yes.

This is so amazing. Wii U pro controller is too expensive. I'll buying a xbox series controller.
Tried Switch Pro controller and worked great. However, Xbox Series X controller didnt want to pair. :/ I have two and none of them synced.
The Xbox Series X controller is not supported at the moment. Only the Xbox One X controller.
Maybe support can be added for the Series controllers at some point.

Thank you very,very much @GaryOderNichts for this breakthrough in Controller Homebrew for the Wii U.:bow:

How big is maybe the Chance with your Homebrew Masterpiece (in the Future) to "replace" the damn Wii U Controller Pad WUP-010 and can use instead any other Device to control a "naked" Wii U ? Is this maybe even possible ?

Thank you.:)

Ha my clone Switch Controller pairs too, I didn't think it would :P but even though it does some of the buttons and Analog directions are swapped. and for some reason in Retroarch pressing left on the Analog Stick disconnects and reconnects the Controller? but again this only happens with the Clone Switch Controller, Official Controller works amazing :)

Hi gary
I have problems pairing the xbox one controls, neither of them synchronizes me with the wiiu, a few weeks ago Microsoft released a control update to insider users and I made this update, it will be for this reason that they do not connect me with the wiiu .
the controls are like the ones you show in the video.

Early Xbox One Controllers didnt have Bluetooth connectivity looking at your pic it looks like you have the non Bluetooth Controller.

For reference...

Thank you for this amazing app, I just borrowed a friend's Xbox One controller and it worked
Is there any chance to add support for DualShock 3?

Ploggy the Vulcano version of the xbox control does bring Bluetooth, in fact I have connected it to my PC and they work.

My mistake. The pic you posted looked like one of the older Xbox One controllers with the separate plastic bumpers.

I managed to sync my model 2 PS4 controller :) but it disconnects and reconnects constantly.. feels like it does it every time I press an input.

The DS4 controller isn't supported at the moment.
It seems to share the name and some reports with the Dualsense which causes that undefined behavior.

Are you sure it's not working? Tried restarting the console, etc.?
Maybe I'll try doing that insider update and see if I have the same issues.

I thought I may get lucky since there was a report earlier in the thread of someone getting the model 1 PS4 controller working fine.

My Clone Switch controller acts weird too, but it's more usable than the PS4 controller :P

Well, afaik my ds4 controller worked perfectly with no issues, I tested Zelda breath of the wild yesterday and it worked fine, I played like 30 minutes and everything went fine and no issues at all
