    Thank Dark Gaia that I don't have to rely on the Switch Pro's crap D-pad, or the amazing tiny yellow buttons.

    Third party controllers can be pretty flimsy. My ZR trigger broke on 2 of the EvoRetro ones from Amazon, and I'm not even rough with my controllers. It's a tiny plastic latch that presses the actual button on these controllers and it's made of a fairly soft plastic.

    The 8Bitdo SF30 Pro controller is pretty nice though. Solidly built, but a bit on the pricey side for a 3rd party controller.

    There are these super cheap third party joycons on AliExpress and eBay that have grips like a controller that are actually really high quality. No HD Rumble or NFC but they're pretty durable and the analogue sticks are incredibly solid. They do have motion controls too.

    It's this controller. It's roughly $30 USD, comes with both joycons and the connector in the middle, and they do contact charge through the console. The SL and SR buttons are tiny, so it's useless as a split controller pair, but you can get two sets for what you would pay for 1 pair of official joycons. They've lasted longer than some of my official joycons. No drift yet, and the analogue sticks are completely different.

    Has anyone gotten this to work with sx os? I've followed the instructions using the latest 3.0 version, copied the folders to sd card, renames "atmosphere" to "sxos"
    running the latest sx os 2.9.2 but xbox 360 controller is not working.
    Thanks in advance

    nope
    I haven't read the whole thread, but would this work over an OTG cable?

    The joycons stop the connection on switch after sometime... even on ofw and after delete the folder, the issue continue. Need to resync again the joycons...

    Maybe change the title because the sysmodule works on un-docked mode as well!

    Yes! Can confirm it works flawlessly with any normal OTG cable!

    You must rename sys-con.nsp to exefs.nsp within the titles folder

    AMAZING! Thanks to the dev. Just tested my official wired x360 controller, and its perfect.

    Now I have
    -joy con
    -official pro controlller
    -gbros adapter (use with my gamecube or wii classic controller pro)
    -apower pro controller (wired)
    -x360 controller.

    questions:

    1. any way to turn on/off the sysmodule in real time, any menu or app to do that?
    2. What about the supported (licensed or not) wired controllers (apower, etc): They are processed different now? or just generic usb controllers and the ones listed (x360, ps3, etc) ?

    Using Kosmos Toolbox is one way to turn on and off sysmodules

    They need to be put into the Kosmos Toolbox config.json in order to be toggled on / off.
