@Anti-Matter well for mario kart in particular since you have 2 pairs of joycon each player can use one so you can still play 4 player with what you currently have. Not the most comfortable but works fin

So I've heard that it is possible to get a switch pro controller to work on pc using a bluetooth adapter, has anyone here tried that?

Yes, it works. I tried it on my PC with the Dolphin emulator using it as a Gamecube controller.

Had my Switch and Pro Controller since launch. Use the Pro Controller when I get a chance to play on the big TV.

However, was just playing WWE 2K18 for the first time on the TV, and I noticed that there was no rumble from my Pro Controller at all. None whatsoever.

I checked the settings in the game, and rumble was on.

Went to the Switch home menu to do the "find controller" thing, and it rumbled/buzzed normally.

Popped DOOM and Rocket League in for a couple of minutes each just to test it, and though it works, the rumble feels sooooooooo weak (and the controller is fully charged).

Because I so rarely get a chance to play on the TV, I rarely use the Pro Controller and so can't remember how good the rumble actually is in games. Plus the game is likely to change by the time I play on the TV.

Anyone else experience this or is yours the same/is it the norm?

Thought I'd best ask now whilst I still have a couple of months guarantee on the controller.

Thank you in advance



@GuruOfGreatness A simple test can be done by downloading pinball fx and playing the free table. The rumble in that game is insane and will feel like the pad is exploding every time you bounce off something. If your rumble is weak on that game id suggest the controller may be faulty.

Hope that helps.

Thank you. If its a free download I may give it a try. Seemed to work as it should on Mario Oddyssey when I completed that the other week. Then again, was it working as it should or was it working as I got used to lol.



the thread is huge and I couldn't find the answer for my question which is: do the later versions of joycon, like the splatoon, mario and arms have the infamous left joycon issue? thanks

Seems fair. I think that the only system with poor controller was the PS4, purely because it had pointless features and a battery that would die faster than my Wii U' s GamePad.

I really like the Switch joycons because they are so versatile.



Joy-cons are $10 off right now at Walmart USA !

Always thought the little buggers were too expensive but this put it more in my sweet spot so I jumped on this deal.

Got neon pink and green while my originals are gray. Was torn if I should get the original neon colors instead. I’m not going to open it till I get my kids opinions for possible exchange



I decided to get a fighting stick and the Hori one was too rich for my blood at $150 so I got the Mayflash F101 for $40 from Amazon. It's decent. The joystick has a square restrictor, but luckily it looks like you can use Sanwa ones so I will swap it out with a 4-8 way swappable one. I'll probably put in new microswitches in the buttons too to get a little better action in them.
