    Locked up in my room, playing video games.
    Soo... I got bored and discovered something weird. About a week ago, I had a CronusMAX Plus lying around and had a bit of down time. I thought to myself, "Can my Wii U power this? And if so, can I use it to play BOTW with a PS4 controller wirelessly?" So I did a bit of research. HIDtoVPAD supports PlayStation 3 controllers via USB, so I got a bit excited when I saw this. The spoiler below shows the steps I took.

    I am unsure if this works with wired controllers such as a Xbox One/360 controller, but it definitely works with Bluetooth controllers such as a PlayStation 4/3.
    Enjoy gaming!

    Seems pretty cool! And about the Xbox controllers, if you run it through the Cronus in PS3 mode, they should in theory work. However, if you plug them straight into the Wii U via USB, they will NOT work (because Xbox controllers have to be different and use Xinput).
