    Gamecube Controllers not working with Virtual Console

    Hey,
    Little problem coming between me and my enjoyment of donkey kong country

    I've been told Gamecube controllers will work with the VC.
    Not having a gamecube previously went out and got a couple as they were cheaper than the classic controllers and meant i could play the VC.

    When I get a couple of VC games downloaded (Goldenaxe and DK country), the gamecube controller won't work with them.
    Goldenaxe plays with the wii remote no matter what I press on the gamecube pad
    DKC just tells me to plug in the classic controller.

    The pads work with gamecube games in the wii so it's not that.
    I've looked through all the settings and can't find anything that I could change to help.

    Any help would be really appreciated, i've spent ages looking online for an answer.

    Are these games compatible with the controller you want to use for them? No all VC's are compatible with GC controllers.

    Sorry I can't help, but thanks for the information, I was going to buy a GC controller for my VC games, I think now I will wait for a Classic Controller.

    Dont have any problems with my gc wavebird controller, did it ask you at the start when you load the vc game up to press the button on your gamecube controller. Does on mine.

    Yeah for example my Super Mario 64 will say something like "You need a Classic controller for this" and I just hit the A button on my gamecube controller and it continues.

    Playing with my GC controller lately, I'm starting to think I should buy the classic controller, as its being said all VC games are optmized for it. I notice some funky controlling with my GC in Super Mario 64.

    while at the screen when it asks for the classic controller, just keep unplugging and plugging in your GC controller into diffrent ports untill it passes the screen. it did that to me the first time i went to play SM64 but after unplugging it and plugging it back in a few times, it worked and i havent had that problem since

    thats strange, do you have any other controller to try using? If the game has a Gamecube controller icon it should work, I'd call Nintendo up on this one. Who knows if it'll be the same for other games you try.
