    So far, I've been able to connect my Wiimote, use Glovepie with it, and am able to play emulators and other games no problem. However, everytime I try to connect my classic Controller with Glovepie, it malfunctions and automatically maps a controller input for me incorrectly before I can even select a button to map with it. It even automatically types in a letter continuously whenever I'm on notepad or any other program. It's really frustrating and I need help with this. Please reply.

    This is getting ridiculous. How am I supposed to find an answer if nobody replies to this?

    Seriously, just get a Mayflash Classic Controller adapter. Its way easier since you plug it directly into the USB port

    Actually, the problem I have happens with every script, even if it's formed correctly. Let me tell you what happens when I run Glovepie. I go into a text input (such as Notepad or even this) and it will come up as "eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" or another letter. I've Google searched this problem to no avail and it's driving me nuts. My Wiimote works perfectly on it's own, however.

    No China Classic Controller is being used.

    You know, you could just map out the CC's buttons to keyboard keys. That's what I have with GameCube and it works fine for me. Just something to think about.

    Edit: I just thought of this. Why do you even need a classic controller?

    They actually are mapped to keyboard keys. However, I still have the issue of a single letter being spammed depending on the script. I know there's a fix for this, and there was a time where I could run a Classic Controller perfectly, but that was 3 years ago.

    EDIT: The reason I'm using a Classic Controller is because I had a PS3 Controller, but the controller was really stiff compared to a Classic Controller.

    Model number of Wii remote and classic controller?

    Is it an official wii remote or a knockoff? Does it have Wii Motion Plus built in or no?

    Paste your script in a spoiler as well, please.

    If you're not familiar with how to do so, lay your post out accordingly:

    Code:
    maybe some post stuff, non-hidden
     
    [spoiler]
    stuff to be spoilered, your script, hidden
    [/spoiler]
     
    maybe some more post stuff, non-hidden

    You were playing Wii/GameCube/VC games with a PS3 controller? That's both cool and weird. It's better to do a direct method instead of using some other system. I just stick to keyboard keys; those plugins never work.

    As far as the Wii Remote Goes, it's actually a Rock Candy Brand Wiimote which works perfectly on it's own and as far as I know does not have Wii Motion Plus built in (Note: I have tested this controller using Notepad and an NES Emulator. It responds flawlessly on it's own). The Classic Controller is the official Nintendo Brand.

    As for a Glovepie Script. Here ya go if it helps.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    No. I was actually playing Emulators with it. It was horrible even on a PlayStation Emulator.

    EDIT: Gonna go to Gamestop later and exchange the Rock Candy Wiimote for a name brand one. I'll post an update here to let you guys know how it goes.

    Wouldn't ya know it? The culprit was the Rock Candy Wiimote all along... Just exchanged it for a name brand Wiimote, now the Classic Controller works flawlessly. Thanks to the people who helped out here.

    Also, if possible. Make sure that everyone knows to get a name brand Wii Remote and Classic Controller so they don't face the same problem I did.

    Well, good to hear you got it sorted out. I hadn't had a chance to test everything out yet (was gonna install Dolphin and Glovepie tomorrow and check it out with my own hardware). Third party Wii remotes tend to be a bit of an issue with non-Wii applications (or even non-Nintendo applications, some homebrews still don't like anything other than official remotes).
