    Is there any apps that support the gamepad through wii u vc?

    I know the lastest gen plus has support for the gamepad. Is there one for the nes and gba emulators that works with the gamepad controls via wii vc inject.

    If the homebrew has Classic Controller support, it will work with the gamepad as a Wii VC inject

    If that were true then Not64 would work with Gamepad without it needing an update.

    Does it not? It's my understanding that as long as the meta.xml is set up properly, an app will use the gamepad as a classic controller

    For Wii games sure. For Wii homebrew no. Which is why FIX94 made a library for adding it.

    the one I know:
    nintendont
    WiiSXR
    Wii64

    If you know more, I'll edit the list.
    I might put it on the first post, or on a wiki page to make it easier to maintain.

    Is there one with the nes, snes, and gb/gbc/gba emulators that support the gamepad?

    I found these
    http://www.mediafire.com/folder/cnwd2mo2ovbpi/wiiuprocontroller
    But they only work with the wii u pro controller, which is awesome but would be nice if it supported gamepad too like how the gen plus update supports both the gamepad and wii u pro.

    I did make those back when I made libwupc, maybe I'll add libwiidrc to them too, seems like some people are interested in it, I was originally planning to update them back when I made libwiidrc but since there are wiiu emulators I didnt think anybody would want it.

    Ah sweet, that would be so awesome if you could do that!

    I couldnt get retroarch to work, too confusing to me. Also I guess there is the vc injects with the nintendo made emulators, but installing titles one by one can be time consuming.

    Anyway its up to you, also wondering would the new versions with the gamepad support also have cover support, like shown here https://gbatemp.net/threads/cover-collections-for-emulators-with-cover-support.324714/#post-4177183
    I dont know if that is easy to add or it too much, but if not its fine, just the gamepad support is perfect :)

    I ran into trouble with it, somehow with the new devkitppc or something things just dont work correctly anymore, I may have to get out older versions or do a lot of debugging to get these apps compiled with modern compiler versions...

    Maybe using an older devkitppc might be easier?
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/devkitpro/files/devkitPPC/previous/

    there are also various mods of some the apps with their source included in the op, maybe these use the newer devkitppc revisions?

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/vbagx-mod-preview-wiiupro-screenshot-button.441937/
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/new-vba-gx-fork-2-3-0.371284/

    theres also these official ones with their source files, if any those might work better with an older devkitppc
    https://github.com/dborth/vbagx/releases
    https://github.com/dborth/snes9xgx/releases
    https://github.com/dborth/fceugx/releases

    just trying to help if any these makes it easier for you

    I really did not want to try an older devkit to be honest, anyways after some debugging I think I now have a build that compiles properly, maybe you can give this file of fceugx a shot and see if it works as it should, I do not have any button mapping GUI set up yet so its all hardcoded for now, it should properly detect your sd card and the gamepad should be able to control the game you choose.

    If it all works then I think I know at least the settings needed to continue working on it and of course the rest of the emus too.

    This is a brillant port!
    The Wii U gamepads controls very well, both during menu screens and ingame.

    I also noticed this also supports the wii u pro controller as well, ands its cool to have the gamepad as player 1 and a wii u pro as player 2. However it will only work as player 2 if the controller is actually paired on the wii u as p2 otherwise any controller paired as p1 will play the same time as if it was being controlled with the gamepad.
