    I basically want to do what sys-con does for PS4 controllers and stuff, but to be able to use a keyboard/mouse. I know you can buy physical adapters but I'd prefer a software solution instead. Is there anything that does this?

    No, haven't seen it done. Hardware is probably your only option for now unless you can code it yourself or bribe somebody to.

    Dang. Do you know which one is best? There's so many options for stuff like that and with all of the Chinese rip off crap you can never tell what's good.

    Doesn't Fortnite on the switch support USB K/M input?

    Ooh cool find. I'm gonna have to try this out. Would be cool to use my old Logitech G13 gameboard. Especially if the joystick could somehow also function.

    Looks like that only supports keyboard though? I see no mention of mouse control.

    I know a few games support native M+KB, but don't remember which ones.

    Looks like it only supports keyboard, yes. I know the developer is a member here, I saw the thread one or two days ago, and I instantly remember about it when I saw this question.

    Hmm...looks interesting. I would prefer a way to just connect it to the switch instead of having a PC as a middleman (for both latency and convenience purposes) but I will try it. Thanks!

    EDIT: unfortunately the client software for this is broken on my OS so I can't remap keys, so this is unusable for me right now
