connecting two 8bitdo controllers?

  • Hi,
    I've found a guide that shows how to connect one 8bitdo controller (

    But how do I connect one additional 8bitdo controller? Do I follow the same guide for the second gamepad, or is there other way to connect it? Also do I need additional bluetooth dongle or can the two gamepads be connected to the same bluetooth dongle?

    Also will both of the controllers auto-connect on restart? Because in the settings I think there can only be one controller that be set up to auto connect on restart.
