    Is any version of Wiisx compatible with the Super Joy box Pro 5? I've tried plugging it in before and after boot and in both USB ports and it doesn't come up. Wiisx can see gamecube controller and Wii remote but not my official playstation controller. It's difficult to play games on gamecube or Wii controller, especially fighting games on those controllers' small d-pads. :(

    Here is the USB HID info from Windows device manager if it helps:

    WiiSX is not compatible with USB controllers natively.
    I think there is a modded version which adds PS3 Controller from USB (I don't have a link, sorry)
    It would be possible to make a version with WiiUPro controller too, maybe even a version with Wireless PS3/PS4 controller.

    But USB adapters are not possible without adding full HID support.

    I have seen the wiiupro version over at gcforever forum. It is based on mod 5, but sadly nothing for any usb adapters to allow real psx controllers.

    How much work would it be to add full HID support? I don't know much about coding, but if someone could pick up a mod and develop it just a bit further...how would they go about learning how to do this?

    it would be difficult for a complete beginner.
    But if someone want to do it, he will have to see how Nintendont HID support is working (no need to re-invent a new controller setup format, it's better for cross-compatibility) and understand how the target homebrew is working to insert HID reading before the current controllers reading code.
    Also, it will probably require that the homebrew runs on IOS58 (I don't know if all IOS/cIOS have HID support. I think but I'm not 100% sure)

    Maybe you could ask to the developers who added and worked on HID for nintendont. (Howard/Fix94)
