What is HID to VPAD?
HID to VPAD is a WiiU homebrew application. It allows you to use HID controllers on your WiiU which will emulate the
the gamepad or a pro controller.
- Native support for common USB-HID devices like the DS3,DS4 and the GC-Adapter.
- Emulating the WiiU Gamepad and up to 4 WiiU Pro controllers simultaneously.
- Support for XInput controllers (e.g XBox 360 and Xbox One) or Bluetooth HID-Devices (e.g. Switch Pro Controller) over the network.
- Support for other controllers can be added by providing a valid configuration file.
- Remapping of your WiiU Gamepad button layout.
"HID to VPAD" is built to loaded through the homebrew launcher, which can be
either loaded through the browser exploit or haxchi.
You need to start this Application every time you reboot your console.
When you want to re-enter the settings, start the Mii Maker (not haxchi!).
It's not possible to start another homebrew application after running hid to vpad.
- Download the zip from github and extract the wiiu folder on your sd card.
- Download HID to VPAD from the Homebrew AppStore
- (optional) download controller configurations and put them on the SD Card (sd:/wiiu/controller) to support more controllers.
- Start the homebrew launcher using your prefered method (e.g. haxchi or browser exploit).
- Start HID to VPAD
- Attach the controller you want to use (You can attach/detach it at any time)
- Select a controller you want to emulate on the game (there is a menu on the left hand side)
- Press A and a window should pop up
- Press any button on the connected Controller. The windows should close
- If the window is NOT closing after you pressed a button on the connected controller, it's probably not supported. Make sure you have a valid configuration on your sd card.
- When the controller is assigned successfully you'll see an image of the controller on the Gamepad. Press any buttons to check if the inputs are working properly
- Assign as many controllers as you want. If you're done, press PLUS to apply the patches
- The WiiU should now load the system menu
- If you are in a game and a controller emulated as the pro controller is not working, press TV on the WiiU Gamepad.

A big thanks goes out to @dimok for creating the HBL, the dynamic libs and every stuff he made. The "environment" of this app is copied from ddd, turned out to be a "hello world" with useful extra stuff.
Also huge thanks to @FIX94 who initally created his gc-to-vpad. Helped me a lot! Thanks!
And of course big thanks to everyone who has helped me testing!
