    Playing Gamecube Games On The Wii

    Hello All!

    I received a Wii for Christmas, and was eager to attempt to play my old Super Smash Bros. Melee on it. I placed the memory cards, and disk, (all of which worked) and used my Wiimote to select the disc channel. I plugged in the Gamecube controllers (one wavebird wireless, one GameStop, two official nintendo) and attempted to start the game. It starts correctly, but does not recognize my controllers

    Any ideas, or a guide for playing Gamecube games on the Wii?

    Dunno what to tell you man...It worked perfectly for me I believe. I think I heard somewhere that you have to press down on both the R and L buttons at the same time in order for the Wii to recognize the controllers though. I don't remember if I did this or not since its been awhile.

    after you select the disc channel, with the mote, you also have to select "start" with the mote, not a GC controller.

    Stick the GCN disc in.

    Select it using the Wiimote.

    When the game starts the Gamecube controller should respond.

    Very Odd, I have 4 Official GC controllers and two Bongos that all recognise without a problem.
    Maybe try it with one controller in the first player slot (neartest to front) Try a couple differnet controllers and see if you can get it to read one... then go from there.

    Hope that helps,

    That's what should happen

    I'll try as soon as I can and post back

    Any other ideas would be appreciated...

    I've had no issues with my GC games, the controller is automatically recognized and responds when the game loads.
