What is the difference between WiinUPro and WiinUSoft?
WiinUSoft is basically a simplified version of WiinUPro. It only connects controllers as an Xbox 360 controller for Windows and allows inputs to be customly mapped. It does not support keyboard or mouse emulation, turbo, shift states, or any other features that are considered more advanced. However, WiinUSoft should be suitable for most users. WiinUPro supports all of the features mentioned above, so if you want keyboard/mouse emulation you'll want to use WiinUPro.
What about third party controllers?
Do I need a Wii U to use the Wii U Pro Controller?
Technically no, but there have been reports of the Pro Controller being disconnected from the computer after some use and then maintaining a pattern of only staying connected for a few seconds upon reconnecting and the best fix for this is to sync the controller with a Wii U and then try again.
What operating systems are supported?
Do I need the Toshiba Stack?
As of WiinUSoft 3.0, both the default Windows Bluetooth Stack as well as the Toshiba Stack are supported. You can even use the introduced Sync feature to properly pair your controller with the Windows Bluetooth Stack to have your controller automatically connect to your computer when you press a button.
Does this work with built-in Bluetooth?
Do I need a Bluetooth Dongle?
Can I use the Pro Controller's USB cable to connect it?
No, communication data isn't sent through the USB cable, only through Bluetooth.
I am having trouble connecting my controller what can I do?
Any time you run into connection issues there are three main actions you can try:
Windows displays my controller as "Connected" even though it isn't.
It's best to just ignore whatever Windows Bluetooth is telling you, it can't be trusted.
What do my Donations go towards?
To keep the site running, web space upgrades, development software, testing hardware (new 1st and 3rd party controllers), research, ect. All WiinUPro project related stuff. I also use Donators as my closed beta group to try out versions not ready for public release. Donations are very much appreciated!I have another question that I can't find an answer to.
