    Guys, I don't have a wii classic controller but I have some N64 vWii games. I was wondering if there is some working solution to use the GamePad to emulate Wii Classic Controller. If not, I thought of making some cellphone app to receive GamePad wireless signals and transforming it to bluetooth signals using a cellphone as a intermediary. I have some experience writing drivers but I don't know how hacked wii u gamepad is right now. If someone with more experience in the matter could give me a feedback I would appreciate.

    I do not think it will work, I'm new here so do not trust me.

    Good luck

    No. Wii U hardware is generally inaccessible in vWii. The sound and video is streamed to the gamepad, but other than that, you cannot use the gamepad for anything in vWii and it will be a long time before you will be able to unless Nintendo plans to change that. (Not likely)

    However, if you're willing to hack your console (assuming you are considering you posted in this section), you could use an N64 emulator in vWii mode if you have a USB controller. Look around the forums. This is a very common question and you'll find a lot of answers if you just browse around for a bit.
