    Hola Amigos,

    So I have a quick question. I recently hacked vWii and got emulators and whatnot running, and I want a decent controller setup for Retroarch and Genesisplus Gx, and came across this adapter: http://www.amazon.com/Mayflash-Nintendo-GameCube-Controller-Adapter-Wii/dp/B00BS520SG

    Now I have some old Retrolink adapters and Raphnet adapters (Retro controllers to GC port adapters) and was wondering if I could essentially daisychain these with a Mayflash adapter for a 'wireles', Wii-U friendly way to make use of what I already have sitting in my Wii-closet.

    The adapter supposedly recognizes a GC controller as a classic controller, but some people say 3rd party controls don't work, but don't state if they are using cheap chinese knockoffs or 'decent' third party controls, and it seems that nobody online has done this sort of thing before.

    Bump. Nobody else has tried this or has any good guesses as to how this works?

    It may or may not work, that's the best answer anyone can give you really. That's a very unique use case and searching the 'net brought up zero results. :(

    I'd say try and test it.
