Quote from: MysticLord on August 03, 2022, 04:53:13 PMI just spent $70 on a Moga XP5-X Bluetooth controller with the expectation that for this much money I shouldn't have to worry about it working. Turns out that was a lie; it works with NOTHING using bluetooth. It works plugged in with Steam, and I didn't try it on an emulator or my phone while plugged in.I want a controller for 3 things:Android Phone, ideally with some sort of clip to hold the phone attached to the controllerSteamEmulators on PCNeeds bluetooth, but a long battery life and the ability to use it as a battery bank for my phone is great. I don't like wired controllers because it's hard to game when Mystic Lad is napping and I can't move or else he'll wake up and demand attention. He also like to unplug things, swat them off tables, pick them up and run with them, throw wires, hide wires, bend wires, chew on wires, drool on wires, pull out wires and wipe boogers in charging holes, and hit things with wires.Please do not recommend something you have not personally used in these circumstances, and say which circumstances you used them in.
Quote from: Jorpho on August 04, 2022, 12:24:15 AMI've used my PS3 controller over Bluetooth in Windows 7. Can't say I'd really recommend it, though; the drivers are unofficial and kind of a mess. (I'm referring to the ScpToolkit drivers, to be sure; the MotionInJoy drivers are an even worse idea.)
Quote from: Jorpho on August 04, 2022, 12:24:15 AMHave you used Bluetooth controllers before? Did you pair your controller with your system correctly? Or check the manufacturer's troubleshooting documentation? Or is that a silly question?
Quote from: Supergamerguy on August 04, 2022, 09:28:42 AMThe 8bitdo SN30 Pro Plus 2. I have used it in all 3 situations you've described with no issues. Switching pairing modes is as easy as an actual switch on the back. You can also purchase a cheap phone clip from 8bitdo as well, if you want to hold up your phone with your controller. It's a technological beast, and I can personally verify that it works with Android (mobile games and emulators), Steam games, and PC emulators (Retroarch and more).Plus it's less than $50. A steal, honestly.
Quote from: Gemini on August 04, 2022, 10:32:01 AMDualShock 4 and 5 work pretty much with anything out of the box (you can run most games through Steam to have XInput compatibility). 8bitdo controllers are pretty great too and they can switch mode depending on whatever you need (Switch, PS4, Windows, Android). All of the above have bluetooth compatibility.

Quote from: Sliver X on August 07, 2022, 02:44:04 PMI own 7 8bitdo Pro 2s at this point and they're really good: The two back buttons on the grips are something I never knew I wanted but now that I have can't imaging giving up (I typically map them to L3 and R3, which is much nicer than having to click the analog sticks) and they work with Windows, Linux, Android and even the Switch (Even more consoles if you buy one of 8bitdo's USB adapters and update the firmware).The first one I got has probably close to 2,000 hours of use at this point and it's still holding up really well, though I would highly recommend getting silicone thumb grip covers made for JoyCons since the rubber on the sticks is like most modern controllers (i.e. low-quality garbage): Skin oils eventually make them dissolve and break down.
Quote from: Sliver X on August 08, 2022, 10:02:15 PMNo, they fit over the tops of the analog sticks.Be sure to get ones made for Joycons and not Playstation/XBox controllers, as the sticks on the Pro 2 sit fairly low and PS/XB covers will generally be too thick so the stick can't be pushed 100% in any direction.
Quote from: MysticLord on August 09, 2022, 03:09:58 PM3/4 of what I buy on Amazon ends up being a cheap Chinese knockoff; I prefer to buy from the manufacturer. Seems like this is them, does it check out with you?https://skullnco.com/products/thumb-grip-for-xbox-one
Quote from: Sliver X on August 09, 2022, 07:48:20 PMNo, those aren't for Joycons.
