    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if it was possible to assign wiimote's button to gamepad/pro controller like x padder does on PC. The best would be that the Stick reproduce the D pad's 8 directions.
    By the way motion controls isn't needed for my use so it's maybe not a problem

    I highly doubt that an easy solution exists, but I want to be sure of it

    Thanks for answering and have a nice day :)

    Sorry, I wasn't clear enough.
    I was asking if it was possible to play with a Pro controller as a wiimote on Wii U .
    Even if your link is really interesting as well, it's not what i'm searching for :)

    Nintendo made the WUPC as a sole traditional controller instead of a gimmicky one, still, the closest that I know of a WUPC-Wiimote is on Splatoon Offline 1v1. However, if you're okay with a non-Nintendo brand controller which also acts as a WUPC and Wiimote then there's this:

    It looks like a deformed Xbox 360 but on the bright side it functions with Wii and Wii U games, as well as act as a Wiimote.

    As I thought it's a bit difficult to be understood, especially with a very precise request asked in a non-native language ^^'.

    The thing is that i don't want to play wii games on pc with a WUPC recognized as a wiimote.
    The purpose was to play wii U games (specially one) with a Pro Controller/Gamepad or other stick controllers recognized by the console as a single wiimote (without nunchunk).
    I don't know if it was the right section to ask this, maybe the Hack one was more appropriate.

    Sorry again for my poor explanations :S

    I'm not sure, but from what i understood it emulates a wii classic controller and not a single Wiimote.
    It really have to be recognized as a single wiimote (on horizontal position), while benifiting of the stick's comfort.
    Anyway, this controller doesn't seem to be sold anymore ..

    According to the reviews it also emulates as a Wiimote too, and yeah, it's tough to find this controller but someone should be selling it on the internet, hopefully for not too high because it's not that valuable.

    Mmmh ok, i will try to find someone who has one of these controllers.
    Just to be sure if it really works this way, so as not waste my money for nothing^^.

    Maybe there's other solutions that don't imply any buy, but if it works it's already really fine :) .

    It was available on eBay a few weeks ago for £14.

    Damn, I missed it. I really want one of those controllers as it seems like the perfect all-in-one solution for all Wii/Wii U games that don't use motion controls. Not to mention GC games with Nintendont. But they stopped producing them before I even found out about the controller, and it seems like they didn't produce that many of them, especially not of the newer version that has a Pro Controller mode in addition to the Classic Controller/Wiimote modes of the first version.
