Hey guys!

So I want to use my Wii U Pro Controller on the PC since my older XBOX 360 Controller has "sticky buttons" and it's really irritating. Also the Pro Controller feels really good.

I watched multiple tutorials and guides but none of them helped me. I always ended up with a disconnection after 1 second or nothing working. So linking something won't help since I tried every guide I could find on Google and YouTube.

Here is some information on my PC:
  • actually a laptop
  • runs Windows 10 on latest version
  • has integrated bluetooth
  • is around a half a year old
If you have any other questions ask them and I'm happy for every help :D

(Sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forum)

Guys the problem is that it doesn't really connect. The PC thinks it's connected but all the controller does is flash with the LEDs and then stop. Then I can't connect to my PC again.

I'm not sure what you're expecting. If you're unwilling to try the suggestions posted and you already tried everything out there then what are you asking?

You seem to have already tried everything and given up on them all then what type of solution are you looking for? Have you tried to connect it with a different laptop/computer? Have you tried an external bluetooth instead of an internal one?

Is it known to work with infernal Bluetooth? Had it installed, shows up on wiinusoft but can't configure buttons on dolphin/cemu.

If all else fail, get an xbox controller. 360 controller is cheaper now. or get an xbox one or ds4 controller. both works great without problem. again, cheaper alternative would be 360 and ds3 controllers.
