howdy y'all,

just got new black model wii, ver 4.3E australian. didnt know it had no GC support 'til opened up at home...

purchased for the reason of softmodding the thing, but hey! no GC controllers. bummer dude : (

haven't been keeping up to date with the modding, seems modmii still is the way to go. but am i not able to play gc games via a usb loader now? last i heard, the wii switches off all wii hardware peripherals when going into gc mode, so no classic controller there.

are these new GC-less models still safe to softmod, i read a couple people having trouble with navigating the menus, with complaints of the power/reset buttons not functioning as they should to allow installation of files.

Thank you in advance

Well, gamecube usb loading is not posibble at all (does not exist) but SD is. And new wiis have new wiiremotes which cant communicate with some old homebwrew apps (these apps must be updated by developers so they will work then). But softmodding is safe, just use modmii :D

Gambia, The
there are ways to load GC images from varios sources (e.g. sd, usb, pc)
but that is useless to you because you can't connect a GC controller to actually play them

your only options are to solder some GC ports to it (maybe ask deadlyfoez)
or wait for tueidjs devolution which is said to include playing GC games via wiimote

edit: can't spell

Thanks lukinoz, nikeymikey, psyblade,

As u said, without GC troller ports, i'm up that famous creek with no peripherals.

Unless some groundbreaking new hack allows classic controller support for GC games, i'll just have to go without. It is a shame, but there's still plenty a softmodded wii has to offer.

Cheers.
