    Any game controllers supported yet for the Incredible? Anyone have an experience with this yet?

    I'd like to get one but I don't want to fork out the money if there aren't supported drivers yet.

    I'm doing some testing with an MSI BGP100. I'm currently testing beta drivers and will let everyone know once I get it running.

    I am doing the same as Asterdroid. The unit syncs with the phone but at the moment we cannot get it to map keys from the BGP100 to the phone for some reason.

    More information on our progress so far can be found here: HTC Incredible, bgp100, and emulators - My Mobile Gear - Mobile Community Feel free to post on the forum your incredible desire for this to work:D The more people interested in gamepro working with the BGP100 + Incredible may help us.

    Just to confirm, my brother has a Wii and so I'll download this app and then the app will let me connect to the Wii remote via bluetooth? I don't have to do anything funky to my Wii remote other that turn it on?

    Will this work with my Snesoid app?

    It will once it works with the Incredible, and no, you don't have to do anything other than pair the Wii remote with the phone.

    There is an initial set up in the app, but after that yea, its easy, and im pretty sure it works with SNESOID. Have to buy batteries tonight to test it.

    well someone make a "paid for" market app for htc phones we will buy it com'n people step up! lol

    ps: is there a work-a-round to solve this problem? I am not a programmer but I don't mind a little research and hardwork, just need a point in the right direction, (gimmie a link or something). I've got a custom boot animation on my incredible, if that says anything about the amount of work I'm willing to do to get something like Wii remote to work...

    "finding the wiimote with the phone is not the actuall issue here, but rather the lack of support for the low-level connectivity with the phone's bluetooth. BAD, BAD HTC! Go stand in the corner!" from the XDA thread

    Also,

    There is unlikely to be any luck until HTC upgrades it's bluetooth stack to the 2.1 image.

    This is also why the Incredible fails to sync properly in some hands-free systems (Ford and BMW for sure)

    Hopefully this gets pushed out with the 2.2 upgrade since I doubt we'll get any OTA upgrades before then. The only other option would be a full root (which we don't have) in which case we could update it ourselves.
