I think there's hope for that, you can get the Wii U Bluetooth MAC Address via homebrew and then change the address on the controller via PC using SixaxisPairTool
I'm thinking about directly doing that on the Wii U, so you can plug in the controller via USB and pair it with a homebrew app.
I've ordered a DS3 so once it arrives I'll look into that.

Since a few messages were lost during the temp mode, I'm going to post a link to the discord server here again.
If you want to help with testing or adding a new controller or just keep track of development, feel free to join.

It's not supported at the moment. Maybe it's possible in the future.

Reposted message: awesome work as always @GaryOderNichts, looking forward to using the DS3 and DS4 model 1 with the Wii U.

Posting again since my original comment got lost in temp mode: I tested my version 2 PS4 controller and it worked great, it even works for Retroarch. It turns off when launching Breath of the Wild, but pressing the PS button turns it back on, no other game that I tested had any issues, also pressing the PS button during gameplay brings up the Wii U menu.

Retrobit's BT Saturn Controller connects, but don't do anything else.

8bitDo BT Saturn Board works 100%, but only with the Dpad set to Dpad, as Left Analogue Stick it will not move to the left.

This is amazing! Tested the joy-con with some games and it worked like a charm. :D The only thing I would change is to map the Joy-cons SR and SL buttons to the ZR and ZL buttons. I think it would make more games compatible (Super Mario 3D World for example, I could not ground pound/enter pipes), but I may be wrong...

Anyone tested with Wii U VC? I tested it with N64 games on loadiine but the analogs didn't respond for some reason... (I think maybe because I loaded through loadiine?)

I tried a PS4 controller with Mario Kart 64 installed to nand. Everything worked fine but the console got stuck when closing the game and I had to reset.
