    I've done my googling and can't seem to find anyone with the same problem, so here goes.

    I installed mame 1.0 (the most recent version on wiibrew.org) and have had some amount of success; with a gamecube controller, it works just fine. However, unlike Snes9xGX and FCEULTRAGX, it does not seem to want to read inputs from a wiimote or classic controller. Does anybody have any idea what I'm doing wrong, or can someone tell me how to map inputs to a wiimote? Is there something that I could do in the .cfg file? Come to think of it, I had the same issue with the Atari emulator (wiiXL I believe it was).

    I believe that's been an issue since the earliest versions of the Emulator.
    I remember downloading MAMEWii and SDLMAME from Scenebeta (an spanish Homebrew related site) with many posts like yours.
    Don't worry, just plug in you GC Controller.
