Can anyone link me to some good programs/drivers/anything to get my Gamepad and/or controller hooked up to my PC? I've tried using the gamepad over wifi and that worked, but I can't use some of. 114 Comments on Wii U Pro Controller Now Working With PC And Mac TeHaxor69 from the GBAtemp forums has managed to get the Wii U Pro Controller working on both Windows and Mac. All you need to do is add your Wii U Pro Controller in the Windows Bluetooth Manager, don’t use a PIN, then start the application.

This will only work on Debian Jessie based distributions. So you either have to get the latest Raspbian version (Debian Jessie based) and use the RetroPie-Setup script or use RetroPie 3.5.

  1. Either open the commandline on the pi by exiting emulationstation or ssh into it

  2. Ensure your bluetooth adapter is setup correctly and working

  3. Enter 'sudo bluetoothctl' command

  4. The bluetooth control input should open, now type in the following commands in this order (you can use the TAB key to auto complete the mac address for the pair and connect command)

Now you're done, press any button on the controller and it should connect, press the power button and it should disconnect, it also persists after a reboot

There is a github project you can easily install that will light up the appropriate lights on your controllers based upon their order on your system. It's just a matter of running 2 commands on your pi. The project is found here: https://github.com/pyhammond/retropie_wiimote_lights

Reader Chris is doing the world a great service with his work transforming the Wii U's big pad into something you can use on a PC.

The video above shows how you can re-map the pad to almost everything needed for a game's input, meaning if you can configure it, you can use it for most contemporary titles as well (or, say, the Dolphin emulator).

Chris tells us the first pending update will add touch-screen support to the pad, while in the future he's also working on getting streaming working, so that you could play a PC game on the controller.
