    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 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?
