    I want to play Not64, WIISX, SNES9GX and other emulators with my WII U Pro Controller. Why is there still no compatible mode ?Can we expect better news in the horizont ?

    In Wii mode the Wii U is underclocked. As such all Wii U exclusive features/specs/peripherals are disabled.
    It might be supported in the future, but not natively/by default.

    The real question is, why didn't Nintendo make the Pro controller compatible with the Wii to begin with ?
    The logic thing to do was making it compatible with the Wii CC, and then any game / emulator that supports the CC would support the Pro as well.
    Oh well.....:unsure:

    Because Wii U pro controller is not natively supported by the Wii(vWii), someone has to write a driver for it.
