While the provided Firestick remote does work for navigation within Happy Chick, it is not ideal for gaming.
Luckily, there are a few unique gaming controllers that work with Fire TV devices. I suggest the Matricom G-Pad BX Wireless Controller that uses Bluetooth technology to connect to your device.
Or, those with an Android Phone can install a remote control app using the steps below:
Install Virtual Controller on Android Phone/Tablet
Type in “https://troypoint.com/happyvc” on your browser.
Tap Download in bottom right hand corner.
Wait for file to install.
Make sure that your internet connection on your mobile device is the same as your Firestick’s network.
On your TV screen, Happy Chick will ask you to use your phone as your controller. Scan the QR code presented.
Once the scan is complete, tap Browse website.
Tap the blue Android button. This will install any updates on your Happy Chick app.
On your Happy Chick Virtual Controller app, tap the TV and mobile phone connection status button.
A message in Chinese characters will be displayed. This indicates the network that you are connected to. If the TV and mobile phone connection status button is not highlighted, this means that the mobile app is not detecting your Firestick.
If you are not able to connect, disconnect your mobile from the network and try to re-connect after a couple of seconds. This will refresh the mobile app’s search for Firestick.
Once the TV and mobile phone connection status button is highlighted in green, your mobile app has now detected your Firestick.
Try moving the Directional pad (D-pad) button in any direction.
This should navigate your control on the Happy Chick app on your Firestick.
If you have a separate controller for a second player, go to the Happy Chick home screen on your Firestick, click Manage > Handler connection.
Follow the instructions on your screen.
Go to My games and select a game to play.
Navigate to the Controller and Phone controller fields and set your devices.
Press any key to continue.
Start playing using your Virtual Controller on your mobile phone.
If you want to control your virtual controller’s settings, tap the Settings icon.
