No you need a blue tooth adapter or the Mayflash adapter(highly recommend)
Minecraft on PC has no native controller support so you would have to use something like Joy2key that maps mouse pointer to the control stick it does not work very well.
May Flash adapter [link] basically plug and play.
Didn't see anything in the rules about links so here's the exact one I bought. I'll take it down if i need to. It doesn't need drivers, just plug and play and sync to it like you would to a wii u.
I know I'm late to the party, but I use a Wii U Pro controller hooked up to my computer via a Mayflash Adapter, and it's honestly one of the best controllers I've ever used.
I bought this dongle: [link]
I've been a Nintendo loyalist (for console gaming) since the NES, so it was natural to look for a way to keep using the controller, rather than switch to X/PS, etc.
I have three generic Wii U Pro controllers..I tried onboard BT..a seperate BT dongle..no go and countless hours trying to get them to work...I have 3 I use at the same time in Mame games (family gametime)..I bought this adapter: [link]
Works perfect ! Best controller out there...
I have 3 generic Wii U Pro controllers..we play games with all 3 wirelessly (4 players MAX games) with this adapter:
I tried onboard bluetooth..plus a seperate bluetooth dongle..no go.Works awesome..no lag..and superb put this line in config.txt should disable the onboard bluetooth module
I had the same problem with my generic Wii U Pro controllers..didnt connect with the internal bluetooth, nor a seperate usb dongle. I bought one of these:[link]
And I now have 3 generic Wii U Pro controllers that work great with no problems using the Mayflash adapter.The Mayflash can support up to 4 controllers at once, and I run all three flawlessly!
I have two generic Wii U Pro controllers.
I couldn't get it to connect with onboard bluetooth..or with a bluetooth dongle
I bought this Mayflash adapter and it works perfect. It can connect up to 4 controllers at once: [link]
It works flawlessly with the controllers. No "ghost button inputs", and you connect the first one..it will automatically be configured for the second Wii U Pro.
3 When you insert a bluetooth dongle, it is best to turn off the onboard bluetooth.Try the Mayflash. Up and running within 5-10min.
Make sure with the Mayflash to have it plugged in controller port one..
This is a specialized adapter that tricks your PC into thinking its a Xbox controller, and comes with built-in firmware that can swap between Xbox button mapping or native Wii U Pro button mapping.
Wii U Pro native mapping to Mayflash:
Alternative Xbox mapping:
If you have a PC, you can grab this Mayflash adapter for the controller and use it like you would an XBox controller. Make sure to download the firmware update so you can flip the ABXY layout to match the XBox layout.
I've used this brand's ps3 controller adapter before and it worked flawlessly, might check this out
I had to use this: [link] to get my pro controller working (though it was 6.99 when I bought it??). It works great as a remote but absolutely doesn't work for shit in many games. Minecraft, specifically, won't load with the pro controller connected, but will load when I hook up a wireless Xbox 360 controller (also with a usb dongle).
Edit: It's likely a d-input v x-input thing. Like, some game apps probably look for an x-input controller and crash when they hit the d-input wiiu controller.
This thing you may want instead, get a wiiu pro controller and hook it up.
Save yourself a lot of time and hassle with this thing, install driver and sync then you are off to go.
The PS4 controller is now fully functional in Steam.
The Xbox 360/1 controller is fully supported in Windows 8 and 10. (For wireless you need the Xbox wireless adapter)
The Wii-u Pro controller can be used using this adapter to translate it into an Xbox controller.
I think you can set it up via bluetooth but I use this adapter:
It works really well and has the option to convert the signal to appear as an Xbox 360 controller. I love the feel of the Wii U Pro and the battery life is insane, definitely worth trying out.
"I believe in Auburn and love it"
Unless I missed something the button layout you describe is exactly what the Wii U Pro controller have which is notable as it swaps A with B and X with Y compared to the Xbox controller.
As others have pointed out a Wii U Pro controller and a Mayflash adapter would let you use it with a pc.
This is the adapter you'll need.
Works on PS3, PC and ofc the shieldtv.
While they are bluetooth they don't work with a standard protocol. I think on PC it took about a year or so before someone figured out a driver to make it run and those ofc don't exist on the ShieldTV
I don't know if the company took that driver and built it into the dongle but the dongle makes your PC/Shield believe that the WiiU Pro Controller is a Xbox 360 Controller and since those are supported by the Shield the WiiU Pro works flawlessly.
I bought this so I can use my Wii U pro controller wirelessly.
edit: You can set it up so it has the same button maps as a xbox 360 as well.
so, I have a very specific issue which only applies to PPSSPP. I have a Shield TV and and an adapter like this.
It basically makes the Shield TV (or a PC) believe that the WiiU Pro Controller is a Xbox 360 pad which is natively supported by the Shield Tv and I use it all the time, especially for Retroarch and it works everywhere.
The only emulator it doesn't work is PPSSPP. And it's not that it's not recognized it's just that with a light press on the d-pad it jumps through menus like crazy. It's basically like turbomode enabled and you can't navigate like you normaly would since a simple button press will bring you down several colums.
With a Shield controller this issue isn't there. I have no xbox 360 controller to test if the problem isn't there either with it (then I could pin it down 100% to the adapter)
Did you guys ever experience something like this, maybe with a xbox 360 controller (since the adapter makes the device believe that the WiiU Pro Pad is a xbox 360 pad like I said)?
Thanks a lot!
Speaking of controllers, I use a Wii U pro Controller that works flawlessly with Killer Instinct, it's just that the PC thinks it's an Xbone controller the whole time. It's done with this adapter and I prefer it over Xbox controllers:
There's a small irony playing what used to be a Nintendo/Rare game a long time ago rebooted into an excellent Microsoft/IG game with an Nintendo controller :p
As a TO would you consider putting a few of these around a venue?
I've got one of these and use a pro controller with the battery still in as personal preference, and sync my controller to one after a match. Before this I used to carry it around everywhere.
Worse case, there's a wireless USB dongle on Amazon.. pairs up with the Pro Controller, and the OS thinks it's a 360 controller (so Steam or SteamOS shouldn't have any issue)
Edit: this one
> I don't really like any controller more than the original SNES, but sadly the Xbox 360 with the revised D-pad is probably the best bet short of an SNES<>USB adapter.
Have you tried a Wii U Pro Controller with an adapter like this?
Google is your friend. You need to have your Wii U Pro Controller paired with your PC first, and it needs to be recognized as a standard controller input. This is what you need.
I have no idea if you can make the bluetooth adapter work, but a Mayflash adapter is $15 on Amazon. It works well with the pi, and is relatively easy to get set up.
If you are willing to spend the money the Wii U Pro controller in conjunction with the wireless dongle is amazing. It has 80 hours of battery life, it is lightweight, the Dpad is superb, and in general it is an amazing controller. You just have to get use to they placement of XYAB being flipper to YXBA.
I use this thing: [link]
It works great for me - played through Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons with it and analogs worked great.
It does work as an Xbox controller, but the issue there is that the XY and AB buttons are flipped. I'm used to the Nintendo layout, not the Xbox layout, so when the game tells me to push X, I push Y on the Pro Controller.
In cases where this matters a lot, like games that display inputs a lot, I customize the controls so that Xbox ABXY = Wii U ABXY.
I personally have been using a Wii U Pro controller connected to this adapter it is very good in my hands, though I wish I could get a legit Saturn USB controller that is not a knockoff.
Wii U pro controller with this adapter. The battery life on the wii u pro controller is insane, the controller is comfortable, and the adapter is simply plug and play that lets you run it as if it was an xbox controller (it definitely works as well - I've tested it on Spelunky). I don't use my controller very much outside of some platformers but this does the trick nicely.
This mayflash adapter allows you to connect your Wii U Pro controller as an Xinput controller without any software (windows will think it is an Xbox 360 controller when the adapter is connected). It should effectively side-step your problem.
No, the USB connection on the Wii U Pro controller is purely for power.
If you want to use a USB connection acquire a Mayflash Adapter.
just plug it in, install drivers, and sync it to your pro controller. there is a switch you use to make it think its a 360 controller so it works on steam and anything.
i have one it it works flawlessly with steam and my nintendo emulators (gba gbc snes etc)
Not sure on the GameCube controller, but I recently played portal 2 with my Wii U pro controller using the mayflash Wii U pro controller to pc adapter
It requires you to install drivers once and then you're set. It has an xinput setting so it can act like an Xbox controller, which makes it easier to program for games.
If you want it primarily for 2D games and the D-Pad, I'd actually suggest the Wii U Pro controller.
Just buy that adaptor. It's plug and play, you don't need any special software or drivers to get it to work in games. Just make sure the toggle switch on the adaptor is set to XInput mode. All your games will think its just a 360 controller.
If you wanted to use it for couch co-op of emulators or MAME or something, you can set the input to DirectInput and connect multiple controllers on a single adaptor. Not so much for Xinput games, but its still an option for only a single adaptor in certain use cases.
The only caveat is the Wii U controller doesn't use the standard 4 button layout, and its rotated. The "A" button is still going to be the "A" button, only issue is in games with Quick Time Events or something that pop up the physical location of the button on screen. It can mess with your mind.
I have this, and agree, works great! The only downside is if you're used to an Xbox layout of A/B & X/Y, just like an old SNES controller, they're switched. That is Nintendo's A/B is reversed from Xbox's A/B, likewise with X/Y. It will map to the exact button, not the position on the controller though, and some games don't allow you to bind buttons. Halo 2 is being a bit of a bastard in this regard, since I can't rebind the buttons.
I think for someone with small hand, like myself, but not children's hands, it is literally perfect. It is light, and feels about the same build quality as the PS3 controllers (which is okay to good, in my mind). The best thing is that it's the Xbox 360 controller build, with the PS3/4 joystick layout. I love it.
My only caveat is that if you have smaller hands like me, using a two finger hand position where your index is on the bumper and ring on the trigger will be rather difficult.
Also, you can get Windows to see this controller as a Xbox 360 controller with the X, Y, A, and B already remapped to be accurate to the new button layout with a 17 dollar dongle. It works quite excellently if you want your investment to be a dual purchase.
Here's the link: [link]
I've been using this for 3 years. It sets everything for you and works every time.
There also exists a dongle which allows you to trick your computer into recognizing the Wii U Pro Con as a microsoft controller, and use it with steam. I love it
You need an adapter.
Or if you ever get a switch
If you don't already have bluetooth in your machine and need to buy something, this also works with less work: [link]
[link] if you get this then it will, but the sticks probably won't be analog.
i do. Mayflash USB adapter on Amazon. Tricks PC into thinking it's a Xbox controller.
Mayflash Wireless Wii U Pro Controller to PC USB Adapter [link]
Use it like a 360 controller.
I know it's a bit late now, but if you manage to get your pc sorted, it could be worth looking to get one of these - [link]
I use the Wii-U Pro controller myself by using a special adapter.
The Wii-U Pro controller works wonders if you get the adapter for it, it translates it into an Xbox controller so it is fully supported and functional.
You can either use a bluetooth adapter or get a specialized Wii U Pro controller adapter like [link]
I use a Wii-U pro controller but you need a special adapter for that:
Using a Wii-U Pro controller using a special adapter, the controller has a battery life of ~80 hours.
here’s a great thread:
wjoy* + a mapper (like joystick mapper)
better yet, get hardware:
PS3/4 controllers are now compatible on steam.
Wii-u Pro controllers can be used with an adapter
Xbox 360/1 controllers are fully supported on Windows 8 and 10.
Sure :) [link]
Pretty much any controller that has xinput will work for most games. I don't know if Logitech has wireless controllers, but those are inexpensive and do the job. Personally, I'm a mad man that loves the feel of the WiiU Pro Controller and I use an adapter to get it to work perfectly on my PC. The only problem is that the buttons are flipped around, but I got used to that. The battery life on this thing is nuts.
Nah like I have a USB adapter that converts it to either xinput or dinput
I use this handy adapter:
Its sole purpose is to connect the Wii U Pro controller to your PC and it does it very well.
I have a WiiU Pro controller and plan to get a Bluetooth Dongle to go with it, either:
But I also have THIS beast to try out:
Mayflash adapter? Got a link much appreciated
Edit: never knew it existed here's the linkhttps://www.amazon.com/Mayflash-Wireless-Wii-Controller-Adapter/dp/B00E6553PW
You need this
yes, i got this adapter for roughly $15 about 1 year ago. it's cheap and works well.
I've had success using [link] for the getting the controller(s) to be recognized by the computer. After that, it's a matter of using your preferred emulator setup.
No, but if you have a Wii U pro controller that can work with this adapter.
I just ordered this:
It has pretty good reviews, a lot of people have had great success with this adapter.
No clue as I don't have Minecraft for the Wii U
Yes, [link] I use so I can use my PDP Afterglow for Steam games. It makes it appear like a 360 controller.
Here's one: [link]
You can also get it to work with Bluetooth and some other software but honestly the time you save just using a hardware adapter is worth more than $15.
This thing is great for WiiU pro controller
A quick google turned up this guide and Another guide and Sa bluetooth dongle made for wii u controllers
Yes! I got one of these, it is picked up as an xbox 360 pad on windows. Such a comfortable controller and the battery life is outstanding.
This and a Wii U Pro will run you about $50-$70.
That's the easiest free option. If you're willing to spend money, this is probably the easiest option.
I've been using the PC adaptor for a few years now for most of my PC games (minus FPS, RTS, and MMOs). Here is my personal review if your interest. :)
This is how I use it, it makes it as easy as a 360 controller
FYI, this is the adapter I am referencing: [link]
Also [link] and [link]
Or just [link] for the gamepad and [link] for the other one :):):):):)::)
Adapter to use on PC
I was aware of the project, but never checked it out myself. It's great to see that it is still in development! :) I shall give it a closer look once I have the time! From what I can see, though, it seems to give Metroid II the same treatment as Metroid did in Zero Mission - and so far I'm loving that remake, so this is bound to be good!
Unfortunately, I don't have a controller to connect to my PC :( I do have a Wii U Pro Controller, and I have tried using it using this tool, but I haven't managed to get it working - it would only recognize it as a Wii Remote :/ I am aware of this dongle as well, but I'd like to avoid spending money if at all possible. Since most games I play on PC are not made to work with a controller, the wait hasn't been so bad :P
I've used the mayflash quite a lot with my pro controller. Works great!
He might be talking about this one
Quien dice que no se pueda poner el mando de WiiU en PC
You can already! I've had these adapter for about 6 months, works flawlessly.
Here ya go. It disguises the pro controller as a x box controller on your PC. Wireless Wii U Pro Controller to PC USB Adapter [link]
Was this the adapter you all got?
I posted this in another thread already, I use the Bluetooth adapter method since I already have a compatible USB adapter I used for my Dualshock 3 before.
>You can already use it with your PC. There are two options:
>Use the program in this thread: [link]
>Which the above requires a compatible Bluetooth adapter that can use this driver: [link]
>The above limits you on functionality though, the following allows a single controller acting as a 360 controller or up to 4 as generic controllers: [link]
>I personally only use mine for platformers so I have no experience with the joysticks on the first option. Hoping to get an adapter soon though.
FYI, I have this adapter or a similar / older version of it:
[link] I don't know if the newer one works with the Toshiba Bluetooth stack or if you'll be able to find it. At that price I recommend the Mayflash adapter.
Also you should check out Wings of Vi if you like challenging platformers. Just a warning, it is NOT easy. I put 40 hours into a save to get through 3/4 of the game about. It is made by the guy who made I Wanna Be The Boshy, but is probably easier. Less spikes and less arbitrary difficulty.
Not for XIV, but for games where I do prefer a controller, I use a Wii U Pro controller.
I have every major controller (Xbox One, 360, PS4, PS3, Steam Controller, Wii U Pro). The Xbox One controller is fine if you already have it, but I highly recommend getting either a Wii U Pro controller or a Steam controller.
The Wii U Pro is rechargeable, lasts 72+ hours somehow, and has the best d-pad out of all the controllers. The steam controller gives you more flexibility for couch games (though has a slight learning curve). The only downside to the Wii U Pro controller is that you have to buy an adapter (just like the XB1). On the upside it's only $15.
If you have a Wii-U & a pro controller, you can get a wireless PC adapter instead of a Xbox wireless adapter. There are few things in the world more perfect than the Wii-U pro controller...
You may be able to find a fightpad for a similar price, though.
I always recommend the Wii U Pro Controller along with Mayflash's adapter.
Easily the most comfortable controller I've used in some time. The battery life is also ridiculous at like 80 hours of play per charge.
