    Hey guys, I'm on 5.32, I just tried the Kernel Exploit and Loadiine etc. yesterday. I have a SSB Disk, managed to load and play Shovel Knight and Minecraft successfully, also via Mii Maker, w00t. I'm going to try Splatoon next and more... xD

    I've now blocked Nintendo updates 3 ways, I'm actually quite lucky because my net's very slow, so that saved my Wii U a few times.

    I'm also looking for a Homebrew Media Player and other stuffs, I love those :)

    So is it possible with a DS3 controller, without an adapter, maybe via USB or anything, anyone tried?

    Oh lots of thanks to all those that made this possible, you're awesome ;)

    Cheers )

    This is not possible for now.

    You need an IOSU exploit and a specific development in order to access to usb controller.

    But I'm agree that will be great to be able to use any USB gamepad.

    As far as I remember Nintendont on vWii allows you to use a PS3 Controller with and without cable. ;) But no Wii U Games instead of the Pro Controller, which is a pretty good solid controller imho.

    And what about the gc adapter? This is working! So maybe all HID-Controllers could work?

    ps3 controller on nintendont only works with the cable not without it.

    all hid controllers work as long as you code them to do it.

    Fix94 made GC to vpad https://github.com/FIX94/gc-to-vpad
    wich basicaly lets you use a gc controller trough the wiiu gc adapter(wich is HID) and replace all button presses on the gamepad so technicaly anyone with some codding knowledge could replace all the info of the wiiu gc adapter for a ps3 controller since its an hid controller too, but you would need 5.3.2 or 5.4.0 fw since gc to vpad needs kernel support.

    If anyone has a PS3 Pad and a <= 5.3.2 WiiU, PM me. It tried to add support, but can't test it

    I think PS3 is HID compatible so maybe modifying usb-gc-adapter to ps3 dualshock could work

    Any way to get Splatoon working with this controls ?

    Gc to vpad use the same memory area as splatoon.

    Also gc to voad isn't compatible with loadiine because of the same memory area.

    Yes, Splatoon is working

    Edit: At least in combination with loadiine, need make a non-loadiine version though

    I don't go map findin' behindin'
    When your code goes public, I'm going to hope/try to get this adapter working with it. (The 'Rolls-Royce' of GCN/N64 to USB adapters, 1ms latency with official pads) Wii U virtual console control needs to be faster than it is now. :)
