    This is the easiest way to do it

    First of all sync joy cons to pc using windows bt stack
    [​IMG]
    Hold 1 sec the sync button and then search it on bluetooth device manager
    Tip: install vjoy driver
    This will make your joycons easier to pair succesfully
    If yor joycons are connected go to next step
    If they aren't repeat from step 1
    Now download wiinupro 0.9.2
    https://github.com/KeyPuncher/WiinUPro/releases/download/WiinUPro0.9.2/WiinUPro.0.9.2.zip

    Execute it

    And click connect

    Next, go to joy-cons tab and click on load profile
    Select Joy-cons_Xinput.wup
    (located inside wiinupro folder)

    Now, go back to home and click add on Xlnput devices

    And you are ready to go

    Wait WiinUPro allows Joycon connection?

    They might want to rename the program to avoid confusion then lol. Maybe they could add official GC Adapter support and just package it as a Nintendo controller management app?

    I wish we could get analog controls working with the sticks. Thanks for the tutorial as it all worked perfect but you cannot aim at anything because the joysticks act as Dpads so no precision aiming.

    Nifty! I'll have to try this sometime. The only problem is, I removed the Bluetooth antenna from my computer's motherboard. Now I have to dig it up. :rofl2:

    Edit: I just tried connecting my phone to my computer through Bluetooth. Maybe only the WiFi radio on my motherboard's Bluetooth/WiFi combo adapter needs the antenna? :huh:

    Somewhere you can never find.
    if this works how I believe it works, you can see my latest status update to see why I'm annoyed.

    Do the Joy-Cons work as a single controller? Do the analog sticks work properly or are they interpreted as dpads? Any lags?

    Hmm.. will have to test this later how it fares against the existing Joy-Con driver vJoy combo.

    Yep, It can
    They work properly but they are like dpads turned into analogs
    so they only work fine on things that don't require high presicion
    like emu's
    There's no lag
    Try to reinstall the app

    It has for a while, I guess no one has posted a thread about it until now. I'm quite content with just using my Pro Controller on PC and that works out of the box without any drivers or software (still need something to emulate XInput though, XOutput is great for that) so I haven't looked too much into it, but I did come across WiinUPro supporting it a couple months ago.

    Pro Controller works perfectly out of the box.

    I don't know if an Android phone can emulate other BT devices. Probably not, JoyCon mode would need to be supported by the BT chip since it's not entirely standard.

    I believe you can choose whether to use them as separate controllers or combine them, just like the other method.

    If you are talking about the antennas that stick out of the back of the PC then those are just for wifi. BT normally doesn't have an external antenna, it's just Integrated into the PCB.

    Wait, what? I thought people had figured out how to get the analogs working properly by now. Doesn't the other method have proper analogs either?

    Edit: To be specific, I meant this method:
    https://github.com/mfosse/JoyCon Driver
    Page doesn't load right now though, Github seems to be overloaded.
    @quazimojo @WiiUBricker Maybe give that one a try, I think it works with analog control.
