    So I'm going to install nintendon't on my wii u to be able to play the gamecube games I have off a thumb drive. My question is has anyone had success doing this using the cheaper third party gamecube controller adapters or do I need to get the official one from nintendo?

    I have the Mayflash Gamecube adapter that has 4 ports and works with both the Wii U and PC. It works perfectly with all the games I've played with on Nintendont. Don't know if all third party adapters work the same, but I can verify the Mayflash one does.

    Nintendont supports generic USB Controllers, but I don't know if a GC one would work.

    Its actually the mayflash one I was looking into picking up Ponyboy. You've saved me time money and frustration. I thank you

    The Mayflash Gamecube adapter with two GC ports doesn't work for some reason. It's been clarified somewhere, and my one just simply doesn't want to work with it. The 4 port Mayflash adapter does work, as does the official adapter.

    I have the official gamecube adapter from nintendo and it works great. I play PSO+ on it with my wife and 2 gamecube controllers. Do yourself a favor and get the official one.

    The four-port gamecube adapter from eBay works fine for me in Nintendont, even with the official Wavebird Controllers
