    Launching Lakka from an OSX machine, I cannot navigate the menu or do anything else using my attached Joycons. How weird is that?! All I get is a PC pointer on screen, and touch controls to some extent (can scroll up/down and enter sections of the first column this way, though the process is really painful).

    I'm using the latest July 17th built of Lakka Switch and its launcher scripts and it all works fine except ...I don't get any input.

    Anyone knows what's going on?

    Recent thread was about not getting the scripts to launch Lakka, the problem was lying at the PC-to-Switch level, whereas this thread is about Lakka controls.

    Mods please change section to Homebrews.

    Did you happen to mod your joycon by shorting the two points to get into rcm mode? I had the exact same problem as you, and it was because of that. I now use my shorted pin joycon to get info rcm mode, then switch to my other right joycon and Lakka works no problem.

    I plan to install a button on my joycon, so that the pins are only momentarily shorted, but I haven't gotten the button yet.

    I do use a shorted Joycon to get into RCM and noticed that it wouldn't work even when booting the Switch normally, so I was attaching a separate Joycon after entering RCM and before running the Lakka launcher, but the result was the same. Just tried again and it's working now, so I think that separate Joycon was too low on battery when I tried it first. Thanks for your help. I hope this thread gets useful for other noobs like me in the future.

    I shorted joycon works fine in normal mode, but for whatever reason causes neither to work while in Lakka.
