Hi, I'm new to homebrewing and was just wondering if the possibility that we can use the Bluetooth to use third-party controllers before patch 3.0. I don't want to sound needy, was just curious if that is a possibility, thank you for your time.

Possible? Maybe. Plausible? No. Xbox One controllers work on phones and tablets over Bluetooth. So the switch isn't entirely out of luck. Just need to ones who have the know how to get us there

There's no solution based on hombrew, but there's an adapter called the Magic NS adapter that you can plug into your switch to use your xbox controller.

It's usb A, but you can get a usb A to C cable if you want to use it on handheld mode.

I have one, I like it. My main setup is a 3.0.0 switch that uses this and an Xbox One Bluetooth controller.

I have a usb dongle that can connect with xbox one controller to use on switch but it requires USB controller settings on switch to be turned on in options.



I forgot those adapters were a thing. I'm wondering and secretly hoping if Nintendo will allow them (USB Controllers) to be read as a generic controller.

I don't know anything about it, but I bet it would work like CronusMax for other consoles where it reports to the console as the official controller undetected online...

Does this dongle for the switch support mods and custom scripts?

This could be achieved through software but I doubt many have interest in doing so... I lack both a switch and an Xbox controller to use but a similar hack was created for the PS3.

Yeah but the thing with those dongles is that they are made for a stock console, not need to have it hacked...

And at least Cronusmax on the other consoles you have like an almost infinite possibility of controller mods like scripting your own rapid fire, and anything you can imagine controller related, anti recoil if you have good script......

I loved one for Battlefield where it would active laser\flashlight only when you pressed fire button so that you don't have it always on giving your position and the auto spot where you don't need to keep pressing spot button....

Ps if the switch dongle would allow that, would be epic and with a lot of value and no need to buy expensive modded controllers.
