    Hi everyone,
    would you kindly tell me which emulators offer the option to play with the joycons separately for player 1 and 2 in local multiplayer mode?

    I asked someone time ago if reicast had this feature and he told me that player 2 was imposible to assign since dpad was not recognized for the second joycon. Have the new builds fixed that? Still, can Flycast do that?

    I'd love to know if Dolphin and Retroarch have this feature too.

    Thanks in advance.

    Retroarch does have this feature, which is good because most standalone emulators aren't even being updated for atmosphere's 9.x changes.

    Dolphin isn't on Horizon so that is a strange question to ask.

    Thanks Rahkeesh, I answer here better than in the Flycast thread.

    Thanks to confirm It works in all cores of retroarch. The thing is I don't need to map both analog and digital pads because I only intend to play arcadish games that only use digital.

    When I mentioned Dolphin I was referring to the version that runs through Linux.

    I think the problem with other OS is not having split joycon at the driver level. Android reads everything from the left joy-con driver and Lakka doesn't support wireless at all. Don't know anything about Ubuntu.
