    Gambia, The
    originals are better, because most of the 3rd partycontrollers don't work for savemiifree

    I disagree, some 3rd party are better as they dont have the pin on the controller allowing all 4 buttons to be pushed without modification

    Does savemii need that functionality or are you just saying that just to chime in?

    Savemii doesn't... but using a gamecube controller instead of savemii does...

    Mine is like this - http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.24544 rather than the 'cross' style d-pad. It's a pretty rubbish gamecube controller, but works well for savemii.

    Savemiifrii works by pressing all 4 direction buttons at the same time.

    thanks, but this function to works does it depends on way the controller is manufactured or any GC controller can make savemii to work?

    Any controller, but as I said some have pins in the control pad to stop all 4 buttons being pressed and need to be disassembled.

    Yes, unless you have a certain 3rd party controller.

    any fake one will work. you just have to mash all 4 directions at once. it doesnt matter who made the thing.
