So you’re trying to connect your controller to your Shadow but can’t seem to figure out how? Here are some links to popular controllers we support, and how to connect them. 

 

 

We also have another post here that you might like! There are a ton of devices that can be supported by Shadow. For example, here are a few uncommon accessories that the community tested out and that worked: 8Bitdo SF30 Pro Controller, HOTAS, Thrustmaster T150, and even the iPega 9023 Gamepad!

My 8BitDo SF30 Pro (running latest firmware) constantly vibrates when I'm connected over Bluetooth in xinput mode to my Shadow Ghost. Not sure why that's happening so I've reverted to using dinput but the triggers don't register in that mode. Anyone have any information or similar issues?

When using a Nimbus Steel Series controller on iOS/AppleTV, I run into the lack of a start-button on that controller. A lot of games detect it as an Xbox 360-controller and expect the start button to be there. This means I can't start those games.

 

Could you add a "soft” start-button to the client's menu screen in the iOS/tvOS client? Would be great  :)

Try the Beta client then switch on USB forwarding then when the client starts win+alt+o then select the device in usb forwarding. Just a guess but I get my X45 hotas working that way.

 

Hi everybody. 

New shadow user for 3 day’s. 

I got my fanatec CSL Elite steering wheel working perfectly by f=installing it first on my crappy windows laptop,then enable usb devices on the shadow hub. Installed the drivers and on my shadow, check the correct box in the shadow settings menu. I do however am wondering if this will work on a ghost as well?

Just want to warn everyone that as of today the new SteelSeries Nimbus+ controller is NOT supported by Shadow for macOS or iOS. That’s the new mfi controller from SteelSeries that came out a few days ago with clickable L and R sticks and more buttons and an included iPhone mount.

So far the best controller I have used for macOS and iOS has been the DS4, especially with the iOS beta and with the “compatibility mode” turned on. On macOS it even supports vibration!

Hope this helps someone.
