    Could you possibly make it so that the Wii U gamepad is emulated as a Gamecube controller, and games that you run in vWii recognize it? Obviously it'd be a homebrew app, but would that even work with the current vWii only homebrew, or would we need to totally tear apart and exploit the overall Wii U firmware, etc?

    It's easier to just recompile the homebrew with the WiiU controller library

    the gamepad doesn't use bluetooth, but a 5ghz wifi connection, vwii doesn't support that natively, implementing it would be extremely difficult, chances are very low, we will see this anytime soon
    wiiu gamepad =//= wii u pro controller
    why do so many people confuse those 2 things?
