OK, bear with me, I'm new to the wii, and never had a GC or N64. I just downloaded OOT for the virtual console, and have been trying to play it with a GC controller. I figured out the issues with the buttons being different colors and in different places, etc. I just got the shield for the first time, and equipped it, and now I'm permanently in attack mode (I don't know how else to describe it). If I don't touch everything, Link is crouched down with the shield up (I can move it with the stick). If I hold the left shoulder button (which I believe corresponds to the Z button, for targeting) he stands up, but is still holding the shield up. The R shoulder button doesn't do anything.
Am I missing something? Is the R button Broken, maybe? It was working a little while ago, but I don't really have a way to test it now.
On a second note, is the GC controller the way to go, or should I get a classic controller? Thanks.
