    Before you want to yell or bash please read
    Would it be cool to have a homebrew app like that that allows us to connect ps3/ps4 or any other type of other hid controller and map it as a pro controller just like with the wii u
    This would work if the switch was in docked mode.
    Do you think it will be possible in the near future

    Its possible to do it, the bluetooth module has support for all the needed components already, not aware of anyone working on it though.

    Magic-NX (a 3rd party adapter) has the ability to do it. However, it only works for one player. I suppose an app similar to HID to VPAD wouldn't have this drawback. I'm sure people have thought about it, it's just that no one's willing to do it yet. We'll probably see it pop up in the future.

    I don't really see you getting bashed for this post as it's a much better idea than your last one. If there's anything people would complain about, it'd be the fact that you said it would only work when docked when it'd actually work undocked as well.

    I agree.
    It was my own fault for not explaining properly by what i meant with fbi on the switch
