    Yeah so when I’m trying to pair it to my PC it asks for a pin. I’d really like to use it with Dolphin to play my GC games.

    I tried the 1234 already. I’ll give the others a go.

    That's my only idea unfortunately, one of those is usually the code for all my Bluetooth crap with pins

    Yeah, that seems to be the default, it's worked any time I've been asked for a pin for any device (well other than my phone obviously)

    How did you get it to detect via bluetooth. Mine can't detect it and someone on the Amazon Q&A said its a specific button combo. Any tips?

    I don't know if it makes a defference, but i have a bluetooth dongle and pretty much from there i went into the setting of my computer to add a new bluetooth device and the rest is up above.

    Just select the name of the device whatever it is and map it to a GameCube controller. Which is the single you are using. Could you tell me if there is input lag after playing?

    Check this: https://wiki.dolphin-emu.org/index.php?title=Configuring_Controllers

    This guide tells you everything you need to know to map controllers. Just take note of the device you are using. In my case I own a DualShock 4 and my computer detects it as “Wireless Controller”. Yours should be “switchpro” or anything. Just make sure you map THAT device into a GameCube controller. When playing, if your computer is a potato pc, it will slow down but if it is a decent pc you will have no problems while playing!
