Recently I just bought My Hero One's Justice and it runs perfectly well on my Nintendo Switch, but when I played it offline multiplayer with my brother, I have an issue with my Pro Controller suddenly becomes unresponsive. Does anyone have the same issue with your own Pro Controller?

Did you update your Pro Controller by attaching it to the dock via the USB-C cable to update it yet?

@SwitchForce I forgot to do that. Thank you so much for the solution, now my pro controller works just fine

@dagda I do that everytime they mentioned a Switch software update. It's just a safety measure to always do. That's how I got my X2 and Splatoon 2 Pro controllers to work with the Switch that I thought I had working before but didn't release it need that connection to connect first. But this is one solution but that doesn't mean a bad Pro controller can happen but doing this will eliminate one problem.

I actually find it a little creepy and suspicious that even though the system may not be docked itself, if the dock is plugged into a power source, it is in constant radio communication with the Switch...

why would they do that ???
it's also provable because it's the only way to send sound to your Bluetooth headset with a dongle plugged into the dock, (talk about taking the long route)

@SwitchForce
even though i never update, (I got stuck with, but I'm happy with 5), I recommend waiting about three-four weeks after a new update, by then players have found all the bugs that the programmers missed

besides, Nintendo designed the system so the firmware can't be downgraded by hackers by implementing a destruction system on a special chip for the firmware...

it's kind of like the NGC memory cards, it consists of a set number of empty blocks, but unlike the NGC memory cards, it in NOT rewritable, each time the firmware upgrades, it marks the last block and burns it, so if someone tries to hack it and downgrade, the current firmware will recognize the older firmware and burn itself out, doing a hard brick, not the other "not allowed online" soft brick,
the problem is, no one (except Nintendo) knows how many avail blocks there are, there was an architectural revision in the systems produced after July 2018, taking care of some hardware flaws that open it up to hacking, even with new firmware updates, my concern is, did they also account for the likelihood of increased updates also and increase the number of blocks ??? I bought mine back in December, used, so it had a much older firmware, I accidentally updated to 5, no big, i like it as is, but i wonder just how few blocks there are on my firmware chip, if I keep doing their constant updates, will my blocks run out and I get stuck with a possible screwed verzion and it kill my system eventually

it may sound paranoid, but, that's me

(yah, not all people who don't upgrade are hacking their systems)
