    Far away from my kitty named Zelda :'(
    Hello everyone,
    I don't know if I'm in the right section.
    I would like to play to a pokemon game called Insurgence. But it is only available for pc.
    I would like to know if there is a way to stream what I see on my pc screen on my wii u game pad and to set few commands so I can control the game with the wii u game pad.

    I suppose it will require a program on my pc and a way to access it through the web browser, but i don't know if there is a such server.
    Thanks for any replies

    It's not impossible as some hackers have already shown (I remember to have seen a video where some guys were streaming TLOZ: Wind Waker onto the Gamepad's screen, which was running on a PC with Dolphin).
    But iirc nothing of that kind is publicly available at the moment.

    I dont think there is a way to do that yet, but what Axido said is true, the only problem is that there is not a public release of that. What you could do for now is connect your gamepad to your PC using a tool called UsendMii, it allows you to controll your PC with it and play games too. I have played PC games with the gamepad and it works just fine.

    Belgium The "only" problem is that that solution doesn't work. I know pretty much everyone skips this video straight to the demo of wind waker, but Delroth clearly mentioned that they had issues keeping things synced on a constant basis (there were probably other important issues I can't remember now, but from a user's perspective, suffice to say that it's useless if you can't keep the stream going for longer than a couple minutes).

    To my knowledge, there hasn't been an progress update since then.
