    oh...Emulators and VC both support gamecube controllers but not sure about using this link cable from a gba. That doesn't look like it sends input like a normal controller.

    I doubt it will work, the only way it would is if the gameboy reports itself as a gamecube controller when using the link... i have a feeling it doesnt.

    Ya, now tat you put it that way. Unless someone hacks the GBA to input it self as a cotroller, and the Wii to read and understand it...Wanting the SNES contoller port for Wii.

    If I remeber this possible, but game dependent. TLoZ: Four Swords can do it, but i'm not completely sure.
    In others games, like pokemon, this cable is for exchenge data only.

    maybe if you have flashcard for GBA and someone wrote homebrew for the gba to think its a controller it could work.
