    I think it's very stupid that you need a wiimote to play GC games too, nintendo should update this.

    Actually you can't play GC games with a Wii remote. I don't rally know if there is a mod or something [​IMG]

    I meant: Without a wiimote you can't use your wii to play a GC game, that's just too stupid.

    Yes, true. You need to navigate to the disk menu with a Wiimote everytime you want to play a gamecube game. REALLY annoying.

    Does the Starfall autoboot option work for GC games?

    its not stupid, its more sence than anything, wii starts gamecube mode, gamecubes never had wiimote, it doesnt even know how to use a wiimote, even on the wii, GC games dont know how to use a wiimote

    You did not understand: If you start the wii, it's in wii mode, which means both wiimote and GC controller support. Then you need the wiimote to start the game in GC mode. There is absolutely no reason why you can't navigate in the system menu with a GC controller.

    I don't see how navigating the menu is impossible with a GC pad, but I don't know a way to either. And most people don't care about doing this anyways, so there isn't a major push for a patch.

    i think the MAJOR push for a patch like this would be for games like SSBB MK games like that. becauase having to turn the wiimote on is crap jut to play these games

    If the batteries of your wiimote are empty and you want to play a GC game, what do you do?
