    I've been playing Tatsunoko vs Capcom a lot lately and the ol' gamecube controller just isn't cutting it. I was looking around for a Hori Fighting Stick that was compatable with both PC and WII, but I'm yet to find one that exists. If anyone has any ideas or experiences with this please let me know, your information will be very welcome.

    Thanks in advanced!!!! [​IMG]

    Same here, actually. I just received in the mail today an xarcade dual arcade stick unit, as shown here: http://www.xgaming.com/two-player.shtml

    Works quite well, all things considered, but I can't Shoryuken to save my life in SSF2T (Although in TvC I've no problems!), so I'm ordering some new joysticks to replace the ones it came with.

    One of the things that really attracted me to this unit was the plethora of adapters for consoles (Xbox, Dreamcast, PS1/2/3, GC).

    Hope this helps.

    Aye, I've seen those before and they look pretty bulky but solid. I'd love to just get a small one that is more portable like the Hori Fighting Stick.
    IE: http://gear.ign.com/articles/766/766069p1.html or http://i2.ebayimg.com/01/i/001/37/40/51db_1.JPG
    If I had more people to play with I'd most likely get that one though [​IMG]

    I do see that it is compatible with nearly anything, meaning there must be a way to get some sort of converter from a USB/Game Cube port for the PC. The main reason I want one for PC and Wii is because of Street Fighter 4's release on PC this summer (fingers crossed.) Anyhow, If you happen to stumble upon anything of the sort let me know! Thanks for the info.

    Hori Fighting Stick for Wii does work on PC if your PC supports blue tooth. You just need a program called glove pie.


    Or if you don't have blue tooth you can buy some converters off play asia and get a Classic Controller to GC converter, then a GC to USB converter.

    Well I ended up buying one of the Wii Hori Sticks for like 50 bucks on ebay. Now I am just having a hard time finding any of the converters. Any ideas or links to play-asia that would point me in a better direction than I have been going? Apparently I am an awful googler'

    A quick search also turned up nothing for me in the way of USB adapters.

    However, you have the option of buying a cheap Bluetooth dongle and using GlovePIE (google it) to connect it to your computer through the Wii Remote.

    Good luck.

    Ahh alright, thanks! I searched but couldn't find anything either. The Bluetooth Dongle was my next choice. Thanks jef!
