    hello.. i have idea in my head..

    Is possible hack some games for use directly the Gamecube pad instead wiimote/classic controller.
    Some orig games use gc controller wiimote and classic (smash bros , mariokart). So is possible do it in other games? (zelda in primis?)

    As far as I know, yes. Wii software has access to GC stuff and people have made remapping codes before for different controller styles.

    But they have to do the remapping stuff manually button-by-button per-game, so it's usually only done for games where people feel it's actually needed to enjoy the game (Donkey Kong Returns being one example).

    same as your other super idea : you need to patch each game one by one and they are all different because the Controller code is done by each developer for their needs.

    Some games already have patches like that (like Added Classic Controller support), but it can't be done automatically.

    Edit:
    I know how to find the controller's button detection, but not how to add redirection, or support for a non-included controller. It would be interesting to learn.

    (I would like to redirect/swap CC buttons on Newer Super Mario bros Wii)

    It's possible but, much like your last "great" idea, it's difficult. There are very few gecko codes out there to remap controls and they're game specific. If it's something you're interested in then you should research how to go about doing it. This isn't really a place where those with knowledge take requests. Your suggestions aren't simple.

    There's a replacement menu which can use GC controller : Post loader 4
    (I don't know if you really replace the system menu or just launch it from the homebrew channel, but you can install it in priiloader and it will always boot it at Wii launch)
