    So I bought myself brand new dancepad and decided to try only(?) gamecube first - DDR Mario Mix. Hopefully Wii games are gonna work better because in this case Dance Pad 1) works in Nintendont menu 2) works when selecting "Progressive scan" setting 3) works when confirming warning 4) stops working. I dont see any settings in Nintendont that could help but I dont use it that much so maybe Im just blind? I really wanted to play damn game, maybe theres something I can try?

    There must be a option that enables the Dance Pad on Nintendon't. I cannot remember, but sure there must be, because if I can remember, there was a "Bongo Controller" option mode on Nintendon't. Did you already check it?
    EDIT: or maybe the Dance Pad must be on another Controller slot?? I never used the Dance Pad.

    I share an SD card between my GC and my wii and nintendon't works well on both, however when it came to playing DDR mario mix the pad seemed to work EXCEPT when pressing left or down since it would press left then inmediately register a left press and an up press in the case of down, I tried a regular controller and the Dpad worked just fine, I even tried it with the mayflash GC adapter for wiiU and on the wii and of course the wii's own GC portss but nothin.

    So if the same happens to you, turn NATIVE CONTROLLER MODE, I hadn't since my wii is retro compatible and wasn't using the wiiu adapter on it, and the GC controllers work just fine so I assumed it worked as native on the wii, but no, that fixes the input. Since turning that option on disables the wiiu adapter, I don't think the pad will ever work on my wiiU.
    NOTE: It works just fine on PC with said adapter so, it's a nintendon't problem.
