Are there any third party controllers for games like Super Paper Mario, Wario Land: Shake it, and the upcoming New Super Mario Bros. Wii? It would probably look like an SNES/PS controller with the IR jammed on the edge between the L/R buttons; basically a gutted snes controller with wiimote internals.

Something like this would really be awesome. Holding the wiimote sideways works o.k., but it's not exactly great.

Why dont you make one yourself?
3rd party ones don't work with homebrew.

I would be willing to buy this and try it out if I could find a place that sells it and ships internationally. It seems these things are US-only. Like many other commentators on that board, the placement of the 1 and 2 buttons is a little worrisome. My thumb just doesn't quite bend that way.

This would be a tricky and time consuming procedure, and the shell would probably have to be a PS controller shell which is less than ideal. I didn't know that third party controllers didn't work with homebrew; that's pretty surprising. Would they have to write drivers to support them?

Libogc would need to have each controller manually written into it, which would be too time consuming.

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme

    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.

    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM

  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm

    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
  • cearp @ cearp:
    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space

    @rqkaiju2, Physical media is a great source for archiving your data, none of that cloud storage shiz.
