Hi fellow tempers!

Been having this little issue that's bugging me lately.

Here's what I'm trying to do but it doesn't seem to work.

Run Wiiflow (I use Fix94's HBL2HBC launcher) from WiiU sys menu.
Now, in Wiiflow the WiiUPC (pro controller) is working fine.
Press B to change source to for ex. FBZX Wii (Spectrum emu)
Scroll thru games - controller still working fine.
When I load a game through, the emulator autloads the game fine but the controller connection is dropped.

The thing is, FBZX Wii works fine with the WiiUPC if I use it directly as opposed to running it via WiiFlow plugin BUT if you quit standalone FBZX Wii you're thrown back to Wii system menu whereby the controller is dead of course. WiiFlow "would" be perfect as I return to the source menu and can carry on with other games etc.

Basically, my question is, is it possible to run WiiUPC compatible homebrews thru WiiFlow without the gamepad connection being lost?

go to wiiflow/plugins and copy & paste fbzx-wii.ini here.

i want to see if you are using the fbzx in the apps folder or abz's plugin dol.

i just found out that oibaf added wiiu pro support to fbzx wii in jan 2017. my guess is your plugin fbzx-wii.ini is still using the old dol from abz's pack which doesn't have wiiu pro support

you wiil need to change the line dolfile= to dolfile=sd:/apps/{fbzx folder}/boot.dol or if on usb dolfile=usb1:/apps/{fbzx folder}/boot.dol

Many thanks dude for the reply. Really appreciate it. Of course, your suggestion was right on the money and all is working fine now. I owe you a pint :)

    not sure. I haven't had that issue. the only computer related issue I've been having is with my isp and the smtp server getting authentication errors randomly. I'm going to have to call them again. this started happening again after changing my password.

    you may have to check the box that says "stay signed in." psx place used to have a problem like this for random people, including myself. that will prevent being logged out or it did anyway.
