    Hi!

    I bought an chinese GC adapter from aliexpress (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/May...336.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.38644c4dpocBIi) to play smash with my GC controllers.

    It worked on the Switch and Smash 4 on the Wii U, no problems at all.

    But I just can't get it to work on Nintendont, even though it says on the Nintendont post that it would be compatible ("All third parties Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter clones").

    I tried with both back switches (PC - NS/WIIU). I tried HID Test but it doesnt load the input part, stopping at version text, then, if I change the back switch it gives me an error -4 and freezes.

    Has anyone used an chinese adapter like this one on Nintendont? Anyone has any idea of how I could make it work?

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit: Forgot to mention, tried it in Nintendont through GX Loader and Nintendont directly from HC, it doesnt work even on the Nintendont menu. Nintendont and controllers updated from the Nintendont menu.

    Nope. May it's really incompatible, couldn't make it work even on the HID test homebrew.

    I think I'll do this.

    Your adapter should be just like mine, of a brand called "Mimd", right? They are advertised as mayflash on aliexpress, but are cheaper and different.

    The mayflash adapters are like this: http://www.mayflash.com/Products/NINTENDOWiiU/W012.html

    Maybe these are really incompatible. I bought an mayflash yesterday, from a seller on aliexpress I'd already buy a magic-ns, so I think it is trustworthy. I'll sell this one, lots of people are buying just to play on switch, and it works really well on it.

    Now, time to wait one month till this one arrives here.
