Wii/GCN controller adapters?

by Ziggy587 Sun Nov 02, 2014 2:52 pm

Well, I finally got around to installing the HBC on my Wii (took long enough, I know) so now I'm looking at controller adapters that I can use for emulators. I thought it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a thread where people list all of their favorite adapters.

There's two types that I see. One that plugs into the GCN controller port, and one that plugs into a remote. I guess that would mean the Wii either sees it as a GCN controller or a Classic Controller. I could go either way, but I would prefer the GCN route.

So what's everyone's favorite adapters to use? I'm looking at a couple for the NES right now, but I wanted to hear what every one says before buying something.

Or should I "hijack" a GCN controller and make a universal adapter?

Get a Mayflash PSX Adapter that allows PS1/PS2 controllers, either or both the Gamecube port and Classic Controller variety. There are tons of Playstation controllers out there including Arcade Sticks, a huge variety of different styles. The Classic Controller adapter route handy if the console across the room under the TV. It also has a capability for any Playstation controller button to be switched to autofire. :idea:

Oh and there is certain PSX Flightstick that works with every Wii game that supports Classic Controller or Gamecube. For your Emulators, a great controller for the Arcade Tron. :D

I personally have used the Mayflash SNES/NES to Wii adapter for years, works absolutely flawlessly without any lag.

Recently I have bought a GBA player for my Gamecube and those Hori GBA pads are rediculously expensive now, are there any good inexpensive SNES to Gamecube adapters I could use with the GBA Player?

For the Gameboy Player, I actually like using the GBA link cable and a (not SP) Gameboy Advance. Both of which are cheap.

There's also the Pelican Retro Pad, which is very similar to the Hori but a lot cheaper if you can find one.

I use the retrousb wii to usb connectors that go into the GC ports for SNES/NES pads, and a funny little adapter that hooks up either N64 or PS2 pads. That way I don't have to add any additional controllers to the pile.

I have the SFC to Wii Controller pad from Club Nintendo Japan, and while it is the perfect pad, I don't really see the point of expending batteries to use a wired controller.

Exactly why I'd rather get adapters that use the GCN controller port instead of the remote.

I use my Wii in my bedroom and my wii and TV are way too far from my bed for a wired controller to be feasible :P

Anything in the way of N64 controller adapters? I'm not finding anything...

N64 to Wii use to be raphnet only. But alittle while ago EMS released this fella:

I have no idea how well it works though, since N64 games are soso on the Wii.
