    Why, Valvtendo of course.

    Edit: It's probably your bluetooth adapter/hardware. Maybe disable/re-enable?

    On your lap.
    Rumble works.
    However, I'm getting an issue where my controls hang and the only fix seems to be to restart steam.

    Don't tell me you take that joke seriously? And who cares really, having more controller options is always a nice thing.

    Well. Latest generation consoles should be supported and it will sound really good idea

    Mayflash Magic NS dongle is amazing! I used my Wii U Pro Controller without having to worry about setting up drivers and it's just fantastic. Feelsgoodman.

    I have a steam controller but can't get used to it's capacitive d-pad/analog stick. I've also not been a fan of manual mapping because it's too tedious and doesn't always work for me. Glad this gives me a second option on my PC without having to invest in a new controller.

    Ehh...I'm kinda the opposite when using an xbox controller. It's just muscle memory of where xyab is on a Nintendo controller that messes with me and so I ended up hitting a instead of b and b instead of a and similar for the x & y buttons. It just throws me off

    Can anyone confirm if this works with a wired connection? The Pro Controller has always worked with bluetooth, but for wired, I've had to use a custom program and drivers that still have a few issues.

    Steam doesn't recognize it at all through USB. Windows can see it connected, but can't do anything with it. ProConXInput works fine, and other controllers are recognized by Steam. Don't have a Bluetooth dongle so I can't try pairing through that.
    Anyone able to use USB with Windows 7?

    Nice. Wired or wireless? The alpha driver I tried that didn't work at all was wired only.

    I left my pro controller in my room for about 2 months still on. I came back to it after those 2 months and was still able to play with it for several days. Fantastic battery.

    I've only tried it wireless using Bluetooth and the rumble works like a charm. Don't see why it wouldn't work wired as well.

    Yes it does. It's just plug and play.
