Hi, I bought one of these cheap clones of the Switch Pro controller (for about 10€) and I must say it's not bad at all. I can use it on PC using the cable and it's detected automatically as a Xbox 360 controller. But I have found nothing on how to connect it via bluetooh.

Is there something that can be used for that pourpose? Something similar to Nefarius' ViGEm/DsHidMini that allows you to use the PS3 controllers on PC, both wired and wireless (this time without kidnapping the bluetooth adapter, like it happened with SCPToolkit)

Thanks, that's something to take into account, but I was more looking for a software solution cosidering that the controller already has bluetooth.

I have one of these that does the job quite nicely https://www.mayflash.com/Products/NINTENDOWiiU/MAGIC-NS.html
It's great because it also lets me connect my Wii U pro controller to the switch, and my switch pro controllers to my PC
There's also the 8bit do which I had that did the same thing : https://www.8bitdo.com/usb-adapter-ps1-classic/
(gave that one away to a friend to use their wii u controller on their switch)

Oh ok then you might want to look for WiinUSoft. I haven't had to use it since I got the adapters that do it automatically, but that was a software driver that could work with bluetooth to connect a Wii U pro controller, and if I recall the "pro" version also let you connect switch controllers. It worked for me about a year ago, but I can't seem to find the tutorial I used to set it up back then.

Typically those types of controller have a PC mode. Can you share which one you bought?

I am not sure if I can copy the aliexpress link or if it would be considered spam, but it's one of these:

I have one of these. You can connect it directly as a pro controller on your bluetooth adapter without changing anything. You just need to hold the home button until the controller light blinks fast. Then it will be discoverable on PC. Connect it to your pc via bluetooth then activate the nintendo pro controller support in steam. That's it.

I've tried with Home + A and Home + Y, both ways it's detected by the bluetooth adapter as "Pro Controller", apparently it establishes connection, but in that moment the lights on the controller go off and it's not really connected. I'll try with a long home pressing.

Don't forget to turn on the Switch Pro Controller Support in steam. It's probably the reason why it gets disconnected.

Thanks, I just tried it, but with no luck. I activated the Switch Pro Controller Support in steam, then went to bluetooth devices, pressed the home button on the controller and paired with the Pro Controller. The moment that it pairs, the controller goes off :(

"(this time without kidnapping the bluetooth adapter, like it happened with SCPToolkit)" very funny but true!
