    Is this possible with just the joycons? I have been trying to make it work for days with no luck.. also when someone asks in the retroarch thread nobody answers.

    I asked, got ignored :( but pFBA supports single joycon mode which should hold you off a bit before it is implemented.

    Someone did a manual controller remap in the retroarch discord channel and apparently it worked for individual joycons. I haven't tried it personally so take it with a grain of salt.

    I uploaded what they sent in the discord. It's not much, but I hope it helps. You can also search in the discord #retronx-support channel on Sunday (aug 5th) around 1am. It sounds like this might not be able to be done in the regular controller input mappings - you might need to go in the core/game specific remappings to get it to work. Again, I didn't do this myself so I don't know the details.

    No thanks. I am aiming for convenience. Besides, I really like the concept of splitting the joycons to play a two player game.

    Any tutorial on the 8 bitdo adapter? I would invest in a couple of cheap NES knock off controllers or something. Sounds cool.

    depending on controller all you have to do is put your controller in pair mode and then push the pair button on the adapter then it should automatically pair. for the ps4 you hold the PS button and share button which will put it in pair mode. i believe there is a website from the manufacturer with a list of all or most compatible devices to use its a pretty broad list. this is the one i use http://www.8bitdo.com/wireless-usb-adapter/ which is very nice looking considering its sticking out of my switchs dock. and I can also hook it up directly to my switch without the dock in portable mode but you need a usb c adapter and i had one which came with my S8.
