    Im running Nintendont on my Wii U, trying to use my PS3 controller until my GCN adapter arrives but ive run into a few problems...

    1. Earlier versions of Nintendont (I want to assume 1.140) start games just fine, but when i load Smash Bros. Melee, the music sounds all messed up and broken, i havent tried any other game at the moment but that happens.

    2. on 3.324,the Use HID Device option is nowhere to be seen, but instead i get a blank spot in my settings between Autoboot and OSReport

    What am I doing wrong?

    Dunno about the first problem, but the second is completely normal. Nintendont now auto-detects HID controllers, so there was no longer any need for the toggle setting

    How do I get it to be detected then? When I boot up smash the controller doesnt work no matter what I do, I have it plugged into the bottom rear port unless it works with the front ones now which i have yet to check.

    What type of adapter are you using? If it's not a commonly used one, you'll need a controller.ini for it

    Both should work directly.

    USB drives and HID controllers/adapters works on all ports.

    I'm still new to this whole nintendont thing so I'm sorry I'm asking so many questions, but my ps3 controller did not work when I plugged it in, the LED player lights were blank and when I pressed the PS button nothing happened, they continued to blink searching for my ps3.

    Press the PS button while in the Nintendont loader. Maybe unplug your PS3 too.

    I put the controller.ini in my SD card and USB device since I wasn't sure if it loads files depending where It loads games, most tutorials I've seen load games from an SD Card with no description or specification

    I've gotten the controller to give it's charging blinking now but it gives absolutely no input, but on the HID Test application I can see its working fine.

    Thank you all, I've managed to get everything working

    It turns out I had to press the PS button on the Nintendont loader, and boot the game with my PS3/HID Controller (however I still need to learn how to re-map buttons, Square is A and B is X)

    Melee plays just fine and no audio problems like I did with Nintendont 1.140.
