    Hi guys. I have some questions about the Gamecube Controller.

    I'm going to buy a Gamecube Controller (http://www.ebay.com/itm/261329759338) and a memory card (http://goo.gl/xgqBlt). My wii is a red one (25th anniversary of Mario), and I can connect a Gamecube Controller on the top. It's cracked by softmod via BombLetter, and it has the Homebrew Channel, Wiiflow and USB Loader GX 3.0.

    - Is it gonna work if I play gamecube games from my USB pen?
    - Is it really necessary to buy the memory card? If yes, you think 16MB is enough?
    - Is there any good channel to play Gamecube games? I heard of "dios mios", is it good?
    - Is there any possibility of my wii being not capable of running Gamecube games?
    - Is there any big probability of "bricking" my wii if I do this?

    Thank you,
    Ev1lbl0w

    GameCube controllers will work 100% with softmodded Wiis, including RVL-001 (built-in GameCube ports) and RVL-101 (using the Wii U adapter with Nintendont; not for Wii games right now, though).

    With regards to the various questions:
    1. DIOS MIOS and Nintendont both support USB and SD storage. (DIOS MIOS has two separate versions; Nintendont supports both in the same loader.)
    2. Memory card is not necessary with most games on Nintendont. A few games may have some issues (I don't know of any offhand); also, currently in order to use the GameCube Microphone (Mario Party 6 and 7), you need to disable memory card emulation, so a memory card would be needed here.
    3. Use the Nintendont loader: https://code.google.com/p/nintendon-t/
    4. All Wiis can run GameCube games, either natively (RVL-001) or with a loader (RVL-101, Wii U).
    5. Only if you do something really stupid. :V
