    Hi there,

    Is it possible to use the GC controller adaptor in the front USB ports on the WiiU, when running the vWii?
    I have a USB drive connected to the rear ports, but would like to also use the GC adaptor within the vWii, and not sure if this is possible?

    Thanks
    Eds

    Since people are mentioning it, any recommendations on a cheap GC controller that has working analog triggers (LR, for games like Mario sunshine)?
    Ill buy that mayflag adapter but all my real GC controllers are long gone.

    Thank you.:)

    Not really,most of then seems to be "reworked" ones.
    There are Controllers they seems to be more slim in the Design.
    Myself has 4 of this from CSL
    https://www.amazon.de/CSL-Nintendo-...ndo+Gamecube+controller&qid=1614807554&sr=8-6

    But I bought them in 2014 as Duo Pack with a Price around 15 Euros.:(

    A friend has some knockoff controllers that look exactly like these and they didn't even last a few rounds of Melee before the sticks were completely shot, useless even for Mario Party.
    I don't recommend that, cheap controllers are all garbage.

    Mario Party is not the most demanding thing for the controllers (well except for N64 Mario Party where you had to spin the stick rapidly using your palm... that ruined many controllers and palms :P)
    Try playing any fast paced games like Melee and they will probably not last long. For the price, there is no way they are made with quality components that will last. It's not worth saving a few bucks when a genuine controller works better & lasts longer.

    Yeah... Some years back I scored a deal on original GC controllers at a game store in Singapore, they were like $15 each, I bought 3. Sold one to a friend. A few years later Smash Bros released for Wii U and the prices they were charging for the Smash edition GC controllers surprised me. I didn't realize what a steal $15 was. I should have bought their entire inventory :P I would have made bank selling them for 3 times that.

    3rd party ones can be good, but the ones that are good are not cheap (expect to pay at least $30-40 for a decent quality one...) also they usually don't have the same layout but go with the traditional ABXY layout. And not many are being made anymore...

    It is unfortunately a Gambling.
    The same good Controller bought 1 Week ago in the same Store can be a complete desaster one Week later...
    So it is not really possible to recommend a 3rd party Controller today.....:(
