    I also have problems with this

    I can not use the gamecube controls because I do not have a wiimote to select only the TV screen

    Anybody help?

    I don't think it is sadly.

    Is it possible to use HID to VPAD in any way? It's the first thing that comes to mind for me.

    EDIT: I checked the thread for HID to VPAD and I don't think it supports emulating Wiimote/Classic Controller unfortunately :(

    It is possible, but the following things need to be true:
    • Your games need to be on a FAT32 USB or SD. No Wii U storage format.
    • You need to be ok with just having a Nintendont shortcut on your home menu instead of individual games. You'll need a second Nintendont shortcut if you want to play with the gamepad.
    If you're fine with both of the above, you install a vWii Nintendont forwarder, install a hbl2hbc forwarder on your Wii U menu that launches your Nintendont forwarder by its title ID, then pick your game from Nintendont. This works because the hbl2hbc forwarder is a Wii U app and not a Wii VC.
