1. hid-mitm-plus: a hid-mitm fork to allow the Nintendo Switch to be playable through Parsec or Steam Remote Play

    hid-mitm-plus is a hid-mitm (by jakibaki) fork that allows for up to 4 controllers (and in the future 8) to be used on a Nintendo Switch from a PC using the network. The purpose for this is to allow the Nintendo Switch to be playable through services such as Parsec (tested and working!) or Steam Remote Play Together (if you somehow manage to and I would love to hear an explanation)
    Currently, this sysmodule is still a WIP with a pre-release available as a lot of optimizations and testing must be made.
    More details are available on the github repository and any kind of feedback is welcomed!

    Requirements:
    Instructions:
    1. Extract the pre-release zip file and copy the atmosphere folder to your microSD card
    2. Insert the microSD card to your Nintendo Switch and turn it on
    3. Go to Settings > Internet and write down somewhere the IP Address, you'll need it
    4. Open Command Prompt and go to the folder where you extracted the hid-mitm-plus pre-release
    5. Execute "py -3 -m pip install inputs"
    6. Execute "python3 input_pc.py [IP ADDRESS]", replacing [IP ADDRESS] with the IP that appears on the Switch Internet Settings
    7. If you have a controller connected, now the switch should detect it!

    This is so cool! I'm lucky that i have a capture card here hehe. It's kinda old (720p 30FPS) but it should work with this, right?

    I remember wayyy before all this was made, I attempted to get the same effect through the use of a capture card and even purchasing a Titan One adapter on eBay. Wasn't a pretty setup, but it worked nonetheless, thankfully this should simplify it.

    This is exciting. Too bad I don't know anyone to use Parsec with.

    Hm, if it really does work through Steam Remote Play, i might actually be interested. Never used Parsec before.

    How bad is the lag though? I use Moonlight + Titan One + Elgato + a modified GIMX and the lag is kind of bad for games like Mario U.

    in my case, the lag was playable for games such as NSMBU or Puyo Puyo Tetris (not adding the lag that Parsec adds), with Steam Remote Play it should be better than Parsec, Moonlight, or any other service tho, since AFAIK they optimize the streams better

    This won't work because of the latency of the preview. That's why you need the specific capture cards.
