    Ok so hello every1 this is my first time here and english is not my native language so if you see some kind of error just let me know.

    The controller i wanna use is a wired usb nintendo switch controller made by HORI and it is licensed by Nintendo. the box says it is compatible with nintendo switch and PC. so when i plug in the controller at the back of my wii and run HIDTest v6 it says it IS compatible (the values at the bottom change when i press any button or move the sticks) so then i created a controller.ini file but when i boot up Nintendont the controller refuses to work and i dont know why. is my controller.ini wrong? PD:HIDtest says the config is for my controller. Native controller is OFF and Nintendont says it is at the latest version when i try to update it

    info about my Wii: i think it is the first model (it has the gamecube ports at the top) and i run the games from a SD card (2GB)

    Here is a pic of the controller:
    (the button at the middle is a turbo button but it does not change any value when pressed in HIDTest)
    it actually is a pro controller that looks like a gamecube controller and it has all buttons required to play switch games except rumble and motion controlls.
    horipad s.
    this is my controller.ini:

    controller.ini

    pls help.
    note: at the bottom of the Luigi logo it has a light that turns red when it is ON. when i plug it in with HIDTest it stays red but when using Nintendont it immediately turns off :(

    Does somebody know where I can find older versions of Nintendont?
