    Figured out this cool trick.



    Flirc detects input from IR remotes (in this case, Wii U Gamepad) and turns them into PC keyboard input. It's as simple as turning on the gamepad and inputting the commands into flirc.

    I am currently setting up the "Full keyboard controls" to test out with games.

    NICE! And to think people were going to complicated measures to try to patch it in through WiFi :P

    It would be nice to use the screen on the gamepad though.
