    It would be interesting if we could use switch controllers on wiiu via bluetooth. However I do not know if it is possible. So I'm going to ask if it is possible.

    I seriously fucking doubt it. They're both wireless and seem to rely on the Switch.

    It should work over network, since it uses your pc controllers. All you need is a config which idk if one has been amde

    however it will run into a problem where it counts the two joy cons as separate controllers, and getting that on wiiu may become a pain

    I didn't think the Wii U had a network controllers application. If so, could you please link it? I know the 3DS has it through NTR now but, I didn't think it was possible on the Wii U. I've honestly looked into it because I love the DS3 controller a LOT

    usendmii works the other way around. It allows you to play PC games with the Gamepad over a network connection (And various other things but, that's not the point)

    It spoofs the gamelad and four pro controllers over network or usb directly in the console

    Of course your pc needs Bluetooth for this to work. That's how the joycons connect. You can get a USB Bluetooth adapter online for less than 5 bucks for your pc.

    Edit: seems like a lot of work for a controller that pretty much sucks. After playing just 4 races on MK8 deluxe your thumb hurts cause the buttons are so small. I had to go buy a pro controller because I don't like those little joycon buttons.

    You could also use the joycons using the charging grip, but I don't have to one, so I can't test/implement it.

    The HIDtoVPAD Network client doesn't support the Joy Cons via bluetooth because it doesn't provide proper Stick data

    For other controllers, you just need a driver. Same goes with Switch Pro Controller.
    I myself used Xbox One controller connected to my PC via USB and it worked just fine, without any input lags what-so-ever.

    Why not do something like this:
    >Connect joycons to computer
    >Download JoyToKey (http://joytokey.net/en/)
    >Map controller inputs to keyboard
    >Use use keyboard which would copy joycon input over the network

    I'll bet you could get something to work like that but the lag would be too much.

    Proof of concept would be cool tho

    Yeah, input lag would DEFIANTLY be a problem especially in fast pace games. Maybe someone will come along and make a program that recognizes the controllers as one. But for now, this is probably the only way to do it.
