    im having a problem trying to play 3 player games with gamecube controllers

    one seems to always be pressing down and the other's b function wont work half the time!

    iv tryed unplugging them and also restating the console making sure no stick is pressed when it boots up

    id say controllers were faulty if they were both 3rd party but one is official and almost mint :(

    is it something im doing wrong with the wii itself?

    What all have you done to the wii? Do the controllers function properly with a gamecube, if you have one to test?

    when trying to play multi player games with 2 oficial gamecube pads the system thinks one is always pressing down and the others B button hardly ever works.

    iv tryed making sure when everything boots up nothing is pressed but it doesnt help

    are both controllers just faulty?

    did you have to make another thread?

    See if your controllers work on another wii or gamecube

    switch the controllers in your wii to different ports. if the same physical controller still has the 'stuck-down' problem, then you can blame your controller. if it happens that any controller plugged into slot 3 has the issue, then you can blame your wii.

    either way, this issue doesnt really have anything to do with softmod. games talk directly to the hardware when accessing gamecube stuff. there is no ios that handles the data. as long as you dont have any patches or cheats running on the game, then it wont be a software issue. it will be hardware.

    after playing around with it a bit iv decided its the controllers. just weird both failed at the same time

    the b button fault is weird as you can press the button in without anything happening and then press it in more to get it to work!

    iv ordered new ones (3rd party though) so thanks for your advice peeps
