    Is it possible to get the gamecube controller adapter to work with wii games being run through a usb loader? I found some old posts from over a year ago saying it is not, but I am wondering if anything has changed since.

    It's not possible.

    it needs the game to have a function to read USB-HID controller inputs.
    Only Smash Bros WiiU and Nintendont have the HID support.
    it would require the Wii game's developers to re-create the game and release them again to add HID support.

    There is a Wiimote Gamecube adapter so you can plug your GameCube controller to the Wiimote, much like a Classic Controller. It kinda sucks because the GameCube controller has no LZ though.

    There are elaborate cheat codes for some games like Donkey Kong Country Returns so you can use the classic controller.

    What if a launcher app to the Wii emulator for vWii homebrew came out that recognized the adapters inputs and converted them into what the game recognizes

    My Dream is to be able to use the GC Adapter with VC on the vWii.
    Is it impossible even with kernel hacks and IOSU hacks?
