It did not seem to work. It would display notifications of connecting to my Wiimotes address then nothing.

I downloaded the game Battlezone Mars to try - still getting notification of connecting to the Wiimote

started the game and it worked but with poor control due to buttons needing remapping.

The game responded to both the FTV remote and the Wiimote but needs mapping that I havn't worked out yet

Prerequisites not listed in the posting above.

1 - seetings.apk - I think BluezIME needs to be the default under KEYBOARD & INPUT METHODS - not sure.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/u2e9dm39nr8rw70/Settings.apk

2 - Xposed framework install - see this thread -- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2618158

3 - HDXposed module installed.

I've found that Language and Input in settings only worked when HDXposed was installed.

I got it to link with a different Wiimote without a pin or going into Bluetooth settings - just using the Bluez IME app and selecting
that wiimote address
.
Limited navigating menus & XBMC with the wiimote right now.

Sorry for the lack of instructions & details. Give it a try. You may get further than I did.

I gotta get going.

Edit:

An additional input method like a USB keyboard is needed since the bluetooth is switched off briefly.

I also tried to use BluesIME to make a BT keyboard work and the system froze requiring forced reboot via ADB of other method.
Can also confirm that this works. I played 1943 in nesoid and it worked pretty much perfectly I used h t t p s://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ccpcreations.android.WiiUseAndroid& hl=en to actually pair my wiimote as I already had it installed, but will give bluez a try. If I can find my classic controller I will try it with that also.

Not reading through 11 pages but is there currently a way to edit the .kl files for the gamepads? xbox360 gameapad is acting wonky on a lot of emulators. I can't find a single emulator that wants to work with it because I can't remap what the start button does in them.

11 pages is a lot. This may help you - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1792531.

That is a really good thread. I followed the instructions there and it fixed the camera spin but I can't use the triggers in Minecraft unfortunately. Haven't tested extensively but I also have the official controller coming too so I may not need to. I'd still like to solve it so I can use the Xbox 360 controllers, though.

You should still be able to find the file for your model. I have no idea what they look like or what it would be called, but from what I've gathered they're in /system/usr/keylayout/. I would think they would be the same, whether wireless or not, but again I've never had to fool with them.

My wireless Xbox 360 controller with adapter works for emulation etc. I cannot get the right stick to work with The Walking Dead, right at the start you need to look into the rear view mirror using the right stick and the cursor just moves to the left of the screen and stays there.

Any ideas?

Just got my MayFlash Wii U Pro USB adapter and am mostly happy with how well it works.

In Xinput mode, everything mostly works, but I am not able to sync more than one controller and I also cannot map the ZL/ZR buttons. I also run into some weirdness because + maps to Menu and I tend to use that for Start in emulators and it causes the menu to pop up all the time. - maps to back, but I think most emulators are smart enough to ignore the back button, so that doesn't really cause any issues.

In Dinput mode, I'm able to sync multiple Pro controllers, am able to map ZL/ZR, and the + and - buttons actually map to gamepad buttons, rather than Android navigational buttons. The issues with Dinput mode are that I can't map the analog sticks at all and the controller can't be used to control the FTV at all.

If I could get the analog sticks working in Dinput mode, I'd be completely happy with this purchase, but as of now I need to choose between one player games with the analog sticks, or two player games with the dpads. Anyone know what it would take to get the analog sticks working in Dinput mode?

EDIT: URL for the adapter is http://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Wii-P.../dp/B00E6553PW. You just plug it in to the FTV's USB port, hit the sync button, then hit the sync button your Pro controller and you're good to go.

I can't seem to pair my Dualshock 4s (either of them!) to my rooted FTV. Am I missing something? Do I need Bluez IME or something else installed to pair a DS4? I've done the keylayout file thing to fix the mapping of the buttons, but I can't get it to pair wirelessly. Should I have paired once before doing the keylayout fix for the DS4?

Thanks
