    For some odd reason I get nothing but a white square in the middle of your post.
    Is it a video or what is it?

    Thanks.

    I recommend the OP to replace the Facebook link with the Youtube one.
    It seems this forum is not compatible with FB videos as media or stand alone videos at all, only by posting the sole link.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    it would be a big challenge, but it would be so great if he could use the wiiugamepad own controls, however you would have to use dualshock analogs cuz the R3 and L3, and to be perfect, presure keys...

    The only issue with making the Wii U gamepad controls as PS2 controls are the Analog Triggers (R2/L2)
    The R3/L3 buttons are present in the GamePad, so that is not a problem.
    Although I don't know how many games really made use of the analog triggers to be honest.

    Good project, but my only recommendation would be to make the GamePad controls usable instead of an external PS2 controller.
    Ditch the Sony controller, is obsolete by design for more than 20 years since the original PSX and they still use it. (Beats me)

    You realize that the Gamepad does indeed have R3 and L3 buttons right? I've only played one game so far that utilize them (ZombiU), but they are there.

    looks cool but its a waste of a gamepad...unless you just had a broken/faulty one or are using a replacement housing for it??

    I woud like this done with gba to be honest. I talked about having a netbook gutted years ago before the tablet craze on benhack. Turning it into an over size gba with a nice screen.

    it's actually a gamepad plastic case cover , i would never destroy something functional just for this

    well if you look at the pictures provided by my friend , you can see that it was modded with the original ps2 controller plates , thats where the buttons will go , the external controller is just for testing

    perhaps then you shouldn't be speaking on such matters that you are not educated in.

    Regardless, you should get one, at this point you're really missing out if you don't have a Wii U, but thats just my opinion, I love great games, what can I say?

    my dad works for nintendo.
    perhaps you should chill out (and after wrote this i also need to chill out), the 99% thing was a joke, and no i will not get a wii u, keep in mind i didnt said i hate it or like it. (if you want to know the reason its because i can't affoard to get it, and lets not discuss this pls)

    also, now knowing is not a big deal, i looked into wikipedia before replying because i had no idea, no other NINTENDO console had "L3/R3" i am suprised that it does

    next time you just need to say (nicely) "wii u does have L3/R3" so i learn something, instead going in rambo with rocks at me....


    BTW EvilMakiPR do you think in the end you will be able to close the gamepad? maybe put a battery on it? or its too hard....
    also, how do you play the games? hdd? can you post more technical details like what you used?
    post more info in here, making us going into facebook instead having the info here on gbatemp is not that cool...

    Did I come across as a jerk? I was just putting my two cents out there. Sorry if my frankness sounded rude, but just being straight up about it.
