    I plan on using this to play smash, as my pro controller broke and I can't get another right now. Others have said that it didn't work with smash, but you used a nightly build to get it working, correct?
    Did you get it working? If so how?

    Excuse me.
    I installed Haxchi and the HomeBrew Loader just to use this, but for some reason the network client doesn't seem to detect my Xbox360 controller.
    If it helps, I'm using an USB adapter so my computer can detect it, not bluetooth or anything like that. But I doubt that's it, since the same thing was done in the video...

    If it helps, the Test program gives this message:
    Scanning for controllers...

    EDIT: The new nightly version seems to work, it detects the controller on the pc, but doesn't want to accept is as a controller on the wiiu... I'll try getting the nightly of the WiiU version too to check.

    EDIT2: Ok, so the nightly version works with the other nightly version perfectly.

    I use my xbox 360 control with hid to vpad network, and it works great in all games except smash

    I posted one in the main thread (using it in wired mode). For bluetooth mode via network client it should already come with HID to VPAD.

    But doing a config on your own is very easy. Write me if you can't figure it out. :)

    Crap, guess I posted in the wrong thread. Thanks, though!

    Working well on a small laptop running XP with 2 x DS4 v2 over bluetooth.

    Any chance of an android port? saves needing a pc or a laptop just to pass controller information across
    Most Android devices play ok with DS4/XB1 pads and I believe they also play with the pro controller?

    I'm having trouble getting the sticks on an Xbox One controller (on a Mac with the 360Controller driver) to report correctly. Has anyone else had (and solved?) this problem?

    Each axis affects two bytes - the first byte runs from 00 to FF but varies wildly in between.
    The second byte is what I need - it's close to 00 or FF in neutral, going up to 7F when fully down/right. But positions left/up register as negative (i.e. the upper half of the range of byte values, counting down from FF to 80 - one above 7F).

    Is it possible to make HID-to-VPAD or the network client understand these (if you add 80 to them, they will map onto 00 to FF)?

    I enclose a terminal log from HIDTest, with comments showing which bytes do what, and what I pressed when.

    I am using the latest nightly build of the network client (HIDToVPADNetworkClient-0.4-nightly-jar-with-dependencies) since it's the only client that detects my Xbox One controller through usb. It works flawlessly on my Wii U but for I am not getting any rumble from any game.. Is there a way I can fix this?

    Possibly a silly question, but do you have rumble turned on in the HID-to-VPAD settings (and home-button controller settings)? I have the same setup as you and it works for me.

    Does it rumble on PC games? If not, maybe it's disabled in the controller - you can adjust it with the Xbox Accessories program.

    What about raspberry pi? Is it possible to run on it and control using command lines?

    I hate bumping old threads and this one was active much more recently than the other HID to VPAD thread.
    I'm going to try to use this and WiinUSoft to pair my Wii U Pro Controller over my GamePad by using my Pro Controller to emulate an Xbox controller on my PC and using the emulated controller to emulate the GamePad through HID to VPAD.
    There's got to be an easier way though, right?

    my wired xbox 360 pad works great over network, but sometimes i want to plug it to wii u directly when no pc is available.
    trying HID to usb TEST to get the values, its not there at all !!
    the pad xbox LEDs keeps blinking, like its not recognizable at all.
    any ideas ?

    Won't work as it's Xinput instead of HID. Network client is your only option.

    You can get hardware adapters like Magic-NS (I use this) or the various Brook Super Converters to use one console's controller with another console. This should allow HID-to-VPAD to see your X360 controller as one of the ones that can connect directly.
