    the problem with these adapters is that you can only use one controller per dongle.
    i hope sys-con will support the original wireless usb dongle someday to solve this problem.

    I'm aware of the advance usefulness of the titan two device. (Aka not user friendly) but I learned to use it enough to what i need. The fact it can do more means there is just more magic to it until I need to use it. :ninja:

    Of course the 8bitdo is easy to use, because it's intended to be. It's only purpose is to use various controllers for any system which works well. That's good too. I just hope their controllers in the future don't need any USB to connect to and can do the system directly. :)

    Can you use more than 1 controller at the time with the Titan?

    Sys-con is an unfortunate name but the involuntary mental image isn't as bad as crossplay's.

    This is going to be awesome when it gets PS4 support, I have a few fightsticks I use on PC, but now I have an easy way to play it on my TV :)

    seeing this makes me think there will hopefully be n64 controller support, I know they sell those third party controllers on amazon for pc, so it will have a way to connect it to a USB port. if nintendo makes a n64 channel I do know for sure they would have to eventually make a switch n64 controller unless this gets it working first.

    Hey guys, I did a video showing this off here!

    I want to confirm that it does work in handheld mode with a usb C adapter. (Tested with Xbox One Controller, Atmosphere, with ReverseNX set in Handheld Mode)

    Ok so I plugged in my Fight Stick Pro's and:..... nothing. Is there something I'm missing, or are they just not compatible? I thought seeing as they support PS3/PS4 modes they might have a good chance of working.

    Just watched the vid above and looks like I've done it right :unsure:

    As far as I know, while the sysmodule should work fine with genuine DualShock 3 controllers, compatibility with other PS3 ones is still hit or miss =/
    (The same is also true for X360/XBONE controllers)

    Good job devs. I'm using Wii U pro controller with mayflash and it's working good like a switch pro controller

    I bought a pro controller for use with the switch recently. Think I’d rather use an Xbox one controller though. Once it’s compatible and has rumble support I think I will make the change.

    Just wish there was an option for people with bigger hands.

    0.2.3 seems to have broken DS3 supported. 0.2.2 works well on that part

    0.2.3 seems to have a problem
    my xbox one controller works also only with 0.2.2

    edit:
    it works with this: https://github.com/cathery/sys-con/issues/18

    Neat. I already have a Mayflash adapter (and my Switch isn't hacked), but it's always cool to see this kind of stuff.

    can't wait for ds4 support and remapping
    theres no input lag which is amazing
    just uncomfortable with using my ds3 with the button mapping being A = O instead of B = O
