    Managed to get my Joycon working fully as one controller on Dolphin using the controller configurations provided :)



    Basically if you rightclick one of the input buttons instead of left clicking, the configure control menu comes up, and you can swap device just for that individual button, which means you can set a/b/x/y/r/z/c-stick to the JoyconR while still use JoyconL for the other buttons :teach::toot:

    If you got a procontroller it should connect fine with Dolphin. It's bluetooth afterall :D

    Yeah but the Pro controller is £60, the Joycon connect seperately so you normally can only play with one or the other, not both together B-)

    You can connect them both at the same time, but most emulators will only let you use 1 Joycon per controller port :cry:

    The whole point of this and of vjoy method are to make the 2 joycons work as 1 controller, I think you missed the whole point. If you want to use just 1 joycon you don't even need to do anything.

    Yeah :wink: it sucks unless you wanna get down and play some retro gbc/gba or even nes/snes games (assuming people still play them) one Joycon is perfect for those systems, can even invite a friend :rofl2:

    How did you get the control sticks to register as axises?

    my dad works for nintendo.
    so, control sticks downgrade confirmed? meaning they are digital and are pretty much like the n64 joystick?

    When paired to a PC normally, yes. It's possible to connect them in a way that the full analog range is available to use, which involves vJoy and some custom Joy-Con drivers that don't quite work for me.
