    I saw that Retroarch supports split joycons, but I cannot get it to work, I adjusted the grip on the main menu, but when I launch Retroarch, even though they show player one and player 2 on the lights on the rails, they function as once controller. I tried changing the Retroarch control settings and still nothing.

    The problem is RetroArch resets the controls when booting a game. You can bring up the menu after you loaded a game. Hit "B" to get back to the RetroArch menu. Go to input and change the split joycons to on again. I hope they patch this soon. I imagine that's not how they intended it to work (or not work)

    Edit:
    I got them to work by toggling split joycon 1 and 2, then putting the joycons on the switch, detaching one of them, letting it pair, then detach the other one and let it pair. It works great!

    does it save your settings or do you have to do it every time?

    I have to do it every time I load up a game.
