    So I'm new to the scene and been scouring the forums, reddit, and discord to get a definite answer to my question to no avail. So sorry if this is a repost or the question has been answered.
    -I have a Wii U set up with games on a usb drive on the back.
    -It's got haxchi CFW running and I've installed my games and nintendont using usb helper and gamecube games using Techon Moon injector.
    -I have two 3rd party Wii U pro controllers that don't work with the gamecube games
    -I've tried creating a controller.ini file and leaving them in the root of the SD or the nintendont folder
    -I'm able to use the gamepad and a usb controller on the front usb port but not able to add another controller to the 2nd port or a multi port usb adapter
    - I have nintendont launcher on my wii U dashboard but I can't really make any changes to the setting even though I'm able to run the games that needs it

    From my understanding 3rd party controllers may not work, and only one usb port is functional for one controller. I'm trying to find out how I'd be able to play multiplayer games like mario kart double dashs, kirbys air ride, and smash melee. So I'd like to know what would be my options

    would it work
    - If I buy a mayflash adapter on amazon and 4 generic gamecube controllers
    - 4 OEM Wii pro controllers
    or is there additional steps I need to take to make what I have wor?

    AFAIK there is no way to make Wii U Pro controllers work for VWii.

    I believe you would have to buy 4 mayflash adapters and 4 controllers, ridiculous I know but what can do you. Wii Pro controllers is probably your best bet.

    Thanks for the response
    -The mayflash adapter I've seen on amazon has 4 gamecube controller ports though.
    -So can I use multiple OEM Wii Pro controllers in vwill or not? the docs I've read says I can but nothing about multiple. Or I can't use them at all since the GC injects are using the vWii. This is confusing.

    Maybe we're talking about different mayflash adapters I was talking about Magic NS Mayflash adapter, my mistake I forgot there are different ones. I have no idea about the one you're asking about someone else probably does.

    I also can't say for sure about multiple Wii Pro controllers, no experience myself.

    I'm pretty sure you can use Wii pro controllers as they simulate a Wii controller. I have a mayflash GC adapter and 3 GC controllers and that works flawlessly. The only problem I have is that my gamepad is always player 1 and the adapter ignores port 1 because it thinks there already is a player 1.

    From the looks of it my best options are to get a 4 port mayflash adapter and 4 gamecube controllers for the GC injects. Does it matter if I connect 4 generic GC controllers to the mayflash adapter or does it have to be OEM controllers?

    I'm not sure how the adapter interpreters the signals of a 3rd party controller but it should all work the same. I only have official controllers so I can't test that for you. Sorry :(

    Well the adapter doesn't work, the 3rd party GC controllers weren't identified so I'm gonna try offical Wii U pro controllers
