sys-con lets you use third-party controllers on a docked Switch via USB

Have you ever thought about hooking up another console's controller to your Switch but you don't fancy either carrying around a USB adapter dongle or running an app on another device for hid-mitm? Look no further then, as sys-con is here to save the day!

Sys-con is a custom Switch sysmodule that allows you to use third-party controllers on your Nintendo Switch. Unlike the other previously mentioned homebrew solution, which, as the name suggests, worked by MITMing Horizon OS' built-in hid module, sys-con just needs you to connect your controllers using your Dock's USB ports: no Wi-Fi connection or external applications required. Not only this will result in less input latency (and, of course, a much simpler setup) but it also means the sysmodule won't conflict with Atmosphère 0.9.4's libnx input workaround, making it fully compatible with the CFW's latest version!

There are, however, a few limitations. First off, as hinted before, sys-con only works in Docked mode. The sysmodule is also only compatible with DualShock 3, Xbox 360 (wired, the wireless dongle reportedly doesn't work) and Xbox One controllers, with DualShock 4 support coming soon. Lastly, rumble and motion controls do not work at the moment.

Sys-con has been developed by @cathery and can be downloaded by clicking the download link below. It officially supports Atmosphère and will work on FW 5.0.0 and up (warning: crashes or freezes may happen on 9.0.X due to high memory usage). You can install it by extracting the release's contents on your microSD card, overwriting if necessary, and then rebooting your console. For more information on upcoming features, troubleshooting and developer support, head over to the project's GitHub repo (also linked below).

I use the latest version of syscon 0.6.4 with atmos 1.1.1

I am trying to getr my logitech driving force gt to connect with usb but no luck so far.

Is there anything I could try or is it possible to add the controller to syscon?

I can't get the Xbox One controller to work properly on docked mode, while it works fine on portable mode. I have to turn the gamepad on and connect it before docking the console, otherwise inputs are not recognized. I guess I have the latest firmware, but last time I updated it was like one year ago.

Do you see "Updated for FW 13.1.0"?
It was a yes or no question. Why do you always give people a hard time? You sit there and talk about how great you are and brag about being a petty Thief and then give everyone else a hard time for asking a simple question. What a joke

I have been using my ps3 controller with Cathery sys-con and it worked great. Can we also get the Stadia Controller (connected using a usb wire) to work with Cathery sys-con as well?

Hi there, my friend can confirm that the latest Version 0.6.4 works with firmware 13.1.0 and his XBOX360 Controller.
Just try it out.

Just gonna go ahead and assume the dev behind syscon has not updated it yet and probably won't update it anytime soon, right?

Hoping to see a fresh update on this. Was trying to get usb n64 controller working but I couldn't get the config right. Seems that the homebrew is functionally dead? A real shame. Tons of potential on this. I guess I will have to look into getting an adapter that can handle remaps or something if this is dead.
