I go to pick up the season pass and all the places I've bought eshop cards from previously are sold out of cards. Weird.

So...no luck with the Brook converter and the minicon. Doesn't work at all. Double checked and a stock PS4 controller was fine, but no luck with the minicon.

I guess I'll probably keep it around (should be handy for my HRAP joystick if I want to play a fighting game or something).

Did you have the Minicon in PS4 mode? Mine's packed away but IIRC there's a switch on it.

Yes, I double checked with the kids. They mostly play it on the PS4 anyway, but they do occasionally play the older game on the PS3.

We tried both of their minicons also (we have an older minicon that my oldest daughter wore out the switches a bit on, my younger daughter still uses it sometimes).

I ordered the Mayflash adapter, we'll try that out.

That is weird with the Brook adapter. I don't know why there would be anything special about the minicon that would prevent it from working.

Honestly with the mayflash I expected some amount of troubleshooting would be needed but it just worked :P

To use the new Hori arcade controller with Mega39s you have to download an update and then go into a menu and select you’re using an ‘external’ controller, just a thought but have you tried that?

Can report that my minicon seems to work fine with my Magic-NS Mayflash adapter. All the button remapping settings are still there so I can map slides to the d-buttons and everything is groovy. Just need for amazon to ship my game now :P

I guess this being the case if the full size controller ever goes on sale again I could pick up the PS4 version with the right buttons free of doubt that it would work with switch too, so that is good at least.
Am I doing something wrong with the Mayflash Magic-NS adapter? I turned on the Switch's Pro Controller Wired Communication setting (which, by the way, made a standard PS4 controller work fine with the Brook adapter over USB).

I can't get any controllers to work on it via a wired USB connection. Not the minicon or a normal PS4 controller, nor did it pick up the Xbox one or Wii U controller. Both of those work via Bluetooth syncing to it just fine.

I'm getting absolutely nothing from any wired controller on it. I also tried a couple of other Switches (we have a lot of them here).

Edit: I tried it just now on my personal Switch (which is on relatively new firmware, but I haven't used it in a couple of months) and the PS4 controller worked straight away. I'll have to fiddle with the kids' Switches more tomorrow and try to figure out what is up.

When I'm using my minicon with an adapter it worked before I discovered that setting, so it being set to off shouldn't be it.

When I'm using mine with the minicon I get a blinky red light on the adapter when the system is on. I want to say the adapter itself has firmware you can update too, if you haven't tried that. "Pro Controller Wired Communication" is off for me. 🤷‍♀️ Oh and just to confirm my system switch on the minicon is set to PS4.
