This library lets you use a GameBoy Advance plugged with a GameLink cable as a GameCube controller or a display.
It's essentially based on Fix94 and Extrems work.
You can easily integrate the library in any homebrew by recompiling and adding a few functions.

Here are some example :

- gba-test
Send a text file to the GBA in GameCube port 1. Test various features : restart GBA, clear screen etc...
Source code


- Wiimc
Recompiled Wiimc SuperrSonic version with libgba. It displays the 'Now playing' on GBA screen.

source code


- ScummVM plugin 15

Wiiflow plugin or standalone app. If a text file is found in the current game's folder, it can be displayed on GBA screen by opening ScummVM menu and pressing Help button.

source code


- LibGBA : the library itself.

Ok, sorry, License file added.
Well, if using your code is an issue, I can ask to delete this.
I've just made this small lib for fun. It won't be the end of the world if I can't share it.

Wow I'm amazed that Wii Emulation has come this far so many people said that using the GBA as a controller would never happen in a million years and yet this says otherwise tried it out myself and was amazing to play the GBA games with the controls as intended thank you for sharing and creating this Wiimpathy!

Just want to ask out of curiousity do you think with this breakthrough maybe some day we could see this going even further and allowing link play on VBA GX? again only curious
