    I have retroarch on the vwii. Games are running fine, but I can only seem to get the actual wiimote to work. I am trying to get either a gamecube controller or a wii classic controller to work, but I am having no luck. I go under settings and choose controller 1 or 2 and try to map the buttons, but it doesn't recognize anything.

    Is this possible? What am I doing wrong?

    GameCube controller is not supported through adapter. Is your Wii Classic, original or third party?

    Also, if you scroll down to the description, you can see that it specifically says it's "(Not for Wii U)".

    It works flawlessly for everything outside of retroarch.
