Apparently, one of the downsides of PC gaming is not having a controller (I wouldn’t know, I’m just a console and handheld gamer myself). Using a keyboard and mouse is just so blah, right? Oh, and I don’t have a Xbox 360, so why buy a controller for the system just to use on my PC if I can get my Wii U Pro Controller to work, right? Apparently some of the folks over at agree.

They recommend following these instructions, originally used for mapping a Wii Remote Plus to PC. Reportedly, community members TeHaxor69 and Daku93 are working to make the Pro Controller usable via the Windows Bluetooth Manager. So far, they’ve gotten the buttons mapped and the rumble functioning, but analogs are stumping them. Here are some of their thoughts:

“What I’m currently working on, is getting the Pro controller to be recognized as a XBox Gamepad, so you can also use the analogs as analogs and not just as buttons. I hope to have something finished as soon as next week, but I can’t promise anything since I’m not very experienced in writing C++ code, which I need to do to accomplish this.” – TeHaxor69

What do you think? Would you like to use your Pro Controller on your PC? Sound off in the comments!

Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
