    So I know Nintendont supports the Gamecube Adapter but that's only for GC games, I want to play a Wii game with the adapter, do any of the current loaders support that?

    Why does Nintendont support it but none of the others?

    Nintendont is a homebrew app with coded support for gamecube controllers.
    There's no way to inject a code in vWii for global [or shared?] controller support.

    Your mom's basement.
    There different "drivers" per game. Different IOS and all this good garbage. TLDR- It requires seperate patches for every individual Wii game and there are multiple controller options to boot.

    Yeah I thought of that but it's not currently something I'd like to buy atm, I can just play with a wiimote, I had just hoped there was a way to use the GCC.

    Well I am glad at least Nintendont use the Gamecube Controller Adapter otherwise it would just be SSMB on WiiU that I'd bought it for lmao

    What you search for is a GameCube to WiiMote adapter this one lets you use your GameCube controller as Wii Classic Controller, Wii Classic Controller Pro and even as Wii U Pro controller. Abit expensive and there're also some that get attached to the WiiMote without any further wire similar to the Wii Motion Plus Attachment, but they normaly have less features.
    Software wise there is no way atm (and most probably there will be never one).

    This is a better deal https://www.amazon.com/Mayflash-Gam...coding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=34SYYBT7TVQ9VVCBB42B It's a cheaper and a smaller version. It's a two pack.

    Is it possible to use a Wii Classic Controller Pro to play GameCube games on a Wii U/Nintendont?

    Well... currently the reason we don't have any true information about this is not just because we don't understand the differences fully from vwii and wii ioses. which complicates things. And to make things even more complicated. We may need to reverse engineer cafe2wii which is responsible for wiiu booting into vwii mode. If we understood all these. Then we very well could/possibly (NOT CONFIRMING) that we can get gamecube adapter to work in vwii games and possibly the wiiu gamepad. as nintendo already gave support to some vwii games with gamepad. HOWEVER don't be confused by this. The gamepad is a slighlty different story as it is emulating as a classic controller. Which clearly the gamecube controller should or needs to act as.... well a gamecube controller.



    Things we need to do.
    1. reverse engineer cafe2wii. Get some sort of custom build of it so we can log or figure out what is going on vwii
    2. figure out how to get the gamepad to act as a gamecube controller. (allow me to explain. If we can get this possible then theoretically speaking all games such as mk or smash, would work properly with the adapter)
    3. figure out how to get usb controllers to work outside of homebrew.
    4. profit.

    Course, what is unfourtante is most people in the homebrew scene have... SWITCHED to the other side. So most people with more than capable know how are gone. I'm currently looking into getting gamepad support with vwii. NOTE: I'M NOT EXPERIENCED. so please do not expect that this will come into fruition by me. We all know what happened to the 3ds scene when a person mentioned n64 emulation. But like I said I am looking into it.


    Just don't expect to come out. and IF it does come out. we can all rejoice.

    Stuck in the PowerPC
    It doesn't work for the same reason it doesn't work on the original Wii - each game has its own set of drivers that talk to the hardware, which means to fool those drivers we need to modify each game individually. The absolute best we could manage is a cIOS that spoofs a Wiimote or something, though I don't know how that all works on the backend so that may not be a thing either. We can't just patch things in like you can on the Wii U, unfortunately.

    Yes via the wii remote, Although the pro classic controller doesn't have analog triggers so games like mario sunshine are way hard to play.
