    I don't have any big expectations here but I'm curious. The original Xbox controller is standard USB and easy enough to set up in Windows without a special adapter, but there doesn't seem to be any Wii homebrew that supports it. Is there anything that makes it particularly difficult to implement support for it in Wii homebrew or is it more that no one's bothered yet?

    For reference I've used plenty of other controllers in RetroArch, Nintendont, etc, via third-party USB adapters. I was just a little surprised that my trusty old Xbox controller isn't supported while tons of other obscure adapters are.

    Hello.:)

    I think that Guy
    https://chris-donnelly.github.io/xboxpad.html
    is the only and "nearest" to use this Controller on an other Device,but only for PC/Windows.
    I fear without Driver/App this is not possible and nobody until today invested the Time to this - I think because of the XBox 360 Controller...


    Thank you.:)

    Maybe with Nintendont through USB Controller Support enabled.
    I have a Power A controller and I've never been able to use it on my Wii. Perhaps you'll have better luck.

    Nintendont uses the USB HID Protocol,I presume....
    XBox Controller(s) use that XInput....:sad:

    Use a USB device like the Magic-NS. I use mine with a config to use a DS4 with Nintendont, but it also supports generic x and d input devices via its USB passthrough.
