    I do remember a long time ago, those hacks implemented on some games that used the Wiimote only, to be played with the Classic pad.

    I will be direct: Can this be done but to use a Gamecube pad INSTEAD of the mandatory Wi Classic?

    Game in question: Samurai Shodown Anthology, wich is LOCKED to only Classic pad.

    Why: Using a Gamecube to PS2 pad and use my damn arcade stick.

    Edit: When I said reverse egineering, was referring to how for example, Nintendont allowed the contrary, instead of Cube pads, use the classic ones.

    Thanks in advance everyone!!!

    EDIT 2:

    Well, you're (kinda) lucky, I'm planning to make a homebrew that transforms GC controller inputs to classic controller inputs (but please, do not have any hope on me)

    While I can't say if anything for sure is being worked on I can offer you this solution that will accomplish what you're looking for: https://www.amazon.com/Mayflash-Gam...coding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=A37YZ8DY3256QJ94V0HD

    A Gamecube controller to Wiimote adapter which causes the gamecube to be treated as Classic controller. The one I linked to comes with 2 adapters but I'm sure you can find just one adapter if thats what you're looking for.

    Well I will be on the lookout and can test if you need so!

    Hmmmm this is a VERY interesting option. I was also looking at something like these:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nintendo-Wi...848964?hash=item567b103c04:g:F8AAAOSwBahVfq5E

    Because my arcade stick is for PS2. But that would mean ANOTHER adaptor on top of that one. I dont want to add more lag/delay than the "presumable" 1 frame added by normal converters. Also avoid the battery stuff on the wiimote.

    While some people would say "but if your stick is already PS2, then use that version" or "on ps2 looks crisper blah blah", NOTHING beats the Wii SamSho Anthology load times.

    We are talking like 5 seconds or less, vs 1 minute and a half to 2 full minutes!

    Thanks both of you!
