I recently got a 8Bitdo controller and it's perfect but I noticed it won't work on Retroarch on Switch ONLY when the console is docked. In handheld mode, Retroarch recognizes the controller and works without problems.
Is there a way to make a bluetooth controller work with Retroarch on Switch while docked?

i have an 8bitdo bt controller too, it works everywhere for me, docked and handheld. No issues with RA too. Might be something on your end. Do you connect it in a switch mode? It should be recognized as a pro controller. Maybe some sys-module confrontation or something, try it on clean atmos and with latest stable RA.

Please explain that part.

Things like Home and Screenshots still work, I just can't use the controller in the RA menu while having the Switch docked.

Update: I've noticed no controllers work on docked. Just on Retroarch.

Do a clean install of RA.
