You can use both Joy-Cons combined in your PC
Jan 7, 9, 1 0. Maybe it's old news? Apparently it's not, since the old method didn't have analog support it was simply mapped to dpadsbut this method has full support. Can't wait to play PC games with freestyle joycons. Also just bought these guards to make them more confortable to hold:. Nov 6, 26, 2 0. That's kind of cool but why anyone would want to use these for anything other than Switch handheld baffles me.

Jaded Alyx Member. Apr 17, 19, 2 1, Grenada. Oct 10, 30, 6 Much has been said about the innovative detachable Joy-Con controllers that come with the Nintendo Switch. Well now with my XJoy utility you can use these delightful Bluetooth devices as an input for your favorite PC games that support Xbox controller input.
Visit the XJoy project to learn more. He had an equally bad time with Xbox and PS4 controllers, as most of his strain came from having his hands too close together. The Switch changed everything for my husband. Because the two Joy-Cons could be separated and held in his left and right hands apart in a resting position, he was able to play games once again, and for hours on end at that!
Still, he wanted to be able to play his old PC games, as the number of titles and genres available for the Switch as with any Nintendo-based platform can be quite limiting, and he has hundreds of games in his Steam library. At first I attempted using the joycon-driver project in conjunction with VJoy.
This worked well in some games like Stardew Valley, but the configuration was extremely flaky and only worked in certain games. This phase was also dominated by a number of Steam-specific bugs in the edit controller window in Steam. Next I became stubborn and decided to bypass this whole controller-emulation nonsense entirely by writing my own cross-platform Node.
I was experimentally able to figure out what parts of the HID data did what by observing the numbers as they came in, and eventually I was able to map out all the controls for both Joy-Cons this is much more fun than simply looking up what the values are for each button.
All of that said, it was extremely cool controlling a mouse on Linux, Windows, and OSX using a Joy-Con analog stick, and I definitely plan to do something with that project in the future, just not in a gaming-focused sort of way. That did the trick. I was able to translate every Joy-Con button over to something on the virtual Xbox controller. One difficulty I ran into was I realized rather late that I needed to multithread the program, as the left and right Joy-Cons need separate threads to properly maintain their HID-read loops.

Do not tamper with this data. It is written by vJoyConf and read by vJoy device. If you remove all deviceXX keys - vJoy will revert to the hard-coded default configuration. Although the interface is self explanatory, there are some points that need clarification:.

Slider V Axis a. Continuous: This switch acts as a step axis with additional Neutral position. This method is useful if you are willing to create your own version of vJoy device driver and you do not wish to make your device configurable. Create one or more registry entries using vJoyConf and write them during installation to the target machine's registry. This is the best approach if you want to override the default vJoy configuration but you do not want the end user change the configuration.
Pack vJoyConf with your product. This will give the end user unlimited control over the configuration of vJoy. However, vJoyConf is written using VS and. NET and might require installation of some additional software packages.By mfosseMar 31, 82, 37 Thread Tools Thread Tools.

I've made two reddit posts about this now, and occasionally browse this forum, but still haven't made a post on here about this yet. Like with the reddit post's I've made before I'll do my best to answer any questions or comments you have.
I don't have a full tutorial on how to use the program at the moment, but I have a basic outline of what to do on the GitHub page, I'll update this if me or someone else makes a full tutorial. If you're willing to make a tutorial contact me and I'll put it on the GitHub page as well as here Q: What actually is this thing and why should I use it? Source Code on GitHub Download here Other Links: vJoy xce xOutput As much as I wish my code was perfect, it probably isn't so if you find any bugs or want to request a feature, you can do that here.
Contact Me If you want to contact me directly for any reason the info is on the GitHub page since I'm not sure if I can post it here. Last edited by mfosseApr 3, DerProGamer Advanced Member. Level 1.

They might want to rename the program to avoid confusion then lol.

I wish we could get analog controls working with the sticks. Thanks for the tutorial as it all worked perfect but you cannot aim at anything because the joysticks act as Dpads so no precision aiming.

I'll have to try this sometime. The only problem is, I removed the Bluetooth antenna from my computer's motherboard. Now I have to dig it up.

Can this software use the 2 joycons as 1 controller??Back in May, when French site Nintendo Actu discovered the Nintendo Joy-Cons could be connected via Bluetooth to most computers, people asked for a way to use two Joy-Cons as one controller. Most of us assumed that the internet would work it out eventually.
Well, now it has! In fact, there are two methods to get the dual Joy-Cons working as one controller. Need more options? Check out our guide to the best PC controllers.
First, some disclaimers: this guide is based on my personal experience of getting dual Joy-Cons to work as one controller on my computer. Both methods are for Windows PCs only, since vJoy, an integral program, is only available in Windows. You will be consulting images throughout this guide. As mentioned, there are two methods to cover in this guide.
Method One is based on this Reddit post and instructions from this other Reddit post by Jayzizzle Method Two is also based on a Reddit post leading to this github page from mfosse.
Active devices are displayed by the green highlighting on those boxes. When pressing a button, the light next to the number of that button in vJoy will light up as shown.
How to use Joy-Cons as a combined controller on PC
With vJoy still running, start UCR. The custom template is made by Jayzizzle and is found here. Run UCR again as an administrator. It should be hiding in the Notification Area, the bottom right of your screen where battery and Wi-Fi are displayed.
There are suggested layouts found in the blue rows, but Joy-Con commands can easily be paired with any output. Press the Joy-Con button to be assigned with the Xbox X button. Press the assigned Joy-Con button again and both circles should light up green. That means it works! Note: While Method One is the more reliable of the two, it does have its problems. Each stick is configured as a d-pad, which means camera controls are not as sensitive as I would like.Page 1 of 7.

Considering before the analog sticks were just mapped to dpads, this is a pretty big breakthrough that went relatively unnoticed. So here we go: I made a video version of this guide!

What do I do? I'm using whatever came with my Lenovo Yoga, which I assume to be the default Win 8 stack. Also, as for the DLLs that people are missing, I just downloaded them off the internet and put them in the folder with the exe.
