    Im just wondering since we have a way to play gc games with the wii u pro controller now, would there be a way to port dolphin to the wii u so we can play wii games with a pro controller?

    Um, why? That's kind of impossible; the Wii already plays Wii games, Dolphin is an emulator, there is not enough power at all and that's just weird. It doesn't work that way.

    i was just wondering. I do alot of dev work myself and in theory it works but in reality i wasn't sure. In theory we could use libwupc to replicate the wii u pro contoller as a classic contorller.

    The problem is not the use of the controller, it's the processing power of the system.

    Why would you put a PC program designed to emulate the wii, inside the wii. That makes zero sense

    What he wants is a way to use the Wii U Pro controller to play Wii games... you can do that on Dolphin on the Pc.

    Use a USB loader and/or Nintendont. Putting an emulator that can barely run on some good computers will never be able to run on a wii. Or a wii u.

    But why, that implementation would be hard as fuck, and super buggy. Plus, the WiiU Pro Controller is already supported in wiiflow

    It might be more simple to add libwupc to ios249 and use a usb loader but i donk know if thats even possible?

    Hmm interesting, that sounds possible to me, we need to ask this to FIX after all he created the new libwupc.

    The Wii can hardly handle N64 emulation.

    no

    don`t claim crap, that clearly is a lie
    you want to be a dev? and yet don`t understant, that emulating a system on the very same system it is supposed to emulate is absolute nonsense
    you can`t emulate a wii on a wii, because emulation takes up far more processing power, then the emulated system has
    and vwii is basically just a wii in terms of power, the wiiu side isn`t publicly hacked far enough to be considered in this discussion

    on the other hand, making the wiiu pro controller work in vwii might just be possible, but NOT by running dolphin in vwii, at least not if you don`t like playing at 10fps

    yeah, sorry, in theory, there is no difference between theory and practice - but, in practice, there is
    but clearly as a dev he knows what he is talking about :rolleyes:

    Ouch dude. For future reference, don't claim to be a dev, and then expect people to not point out the lack of knowledge.

    In theory GameBoy Color should be able to emulate a 3DS. Trust me, I'm a hacker.

    In theory a Game & Watch should be able to emulate a Vita. Trust me, I'm a CoD player.

    In theory, the Mountain Dew I just drank should be able to emulate the PS8. Trust me, I'm the first man on Mars.

    PS: For what it's worth, I actually AM a developer.
