    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.

    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.
