    I think we have all seen the wiimote be used with pc applications but could the classic controller w/ wiimote be mapped to a pc app, for instance for emulators???

    i dont know if it can be done yet, but it wouldnt be too dificult...

    im not a coder but i know that this task would be quite easy, especially as the wii remote can already work with PCs...

    Darkprinny, i knew about those, but was thinking the way the classic connects to the remote as opposed to plugging direct...

    well you can use the xbox 360 controller with out an adapter...but the d-pad on it sucks. the d pad on the classic controller is great (which is why I was interested)

    no i was more thinking the way that the adapters you were talking about was for using wired controllers, direct to the pc, via the adapters..

    but using the the classic controller which plugs into the remote, then using a bluetooth connection from there, so you dont need to be wired direct to the pc..

    (i hope that makes sense, it does in my head anyway...)

    It does but I dont see why youd want to use the classic controller for games
    Youd be better off usein a diffrent make of controller as the classic contorller isnt that good for loads of games (im talkin emu and VC here)

    I have one of the 2 slot PS2 to USB adapters, they work well
    but I really hate the "4 diamonds" style of the stock PS2 d-pad.
    Thought about getting a SNES to USB adapter, but sadly they
    only come in single slot form. If some company were to make
    a USB adapter for the Wii Classic Pad that you hooked in just
    from the little wire at the bottom (instead of needing a wiimote
    and a Bluetooth, and GlovePie and all that complicated crap)
    I'm sure it'd be a big hit with emu gamers, but then of course
    you know those folks would get sued into oblivion like Lik-Sang.

    It sounds like it could definately work, but I don't know how, I don't do that stuff. I just use normal PC controller plug-ins.

    I wish some third party company like SuperJoy would make a Classic Controller -> USB connector, it'd hafta have a female outlet for the classic pad to plug into, and it'd need its own length too (or perhaps the folks at RetroZone could strip one out and make it USB like they did with old NES pads. I like the thought of playing with the Classic Controller because of it's superb d-pad and extra buttons that'd work nicely with Zsnes, I just don't have the money or the patience to deal with the bluetooth/glovepie stuff.

    Well, if anyone ever figures out how to mod a Wii Classic Pad so it could be used on PC with
    JoyToKey and give it its own 6ft USB cable, here is (imo) the perfect layout for it in Zsnes.

    I for one think a USB adapter would sell.
    I say an adapter, rather than a direct splice with a classic controller,
    because it would be especially popular within the vs. fighter community for use of the Wii Hori Arcade stick on PC.
    (it's basically a warped classic controller, it plugs into the wii remote)
    [​IMG]
    Recently on SRK people have been discussing and working on modification of the Wii Hori Arcade Stick to work on PS3 and 360 for mainly three good reasons:
    1.) It's cheaper than any other arcade stick on the market
    2.) It has turbo functionality for every single button
    3.) The majority of all arcade sticks aside from it are sold out everywhere
    (due to the release of Street Fighter IV for 360/PS3)

    Street Fighter IV is due to release for PC in the coming months as well,
    so demand for a classic controller to USB adapter will be much higher,
    since there aren't really any decent arcade sticks on the market for PC as it is.

    ^ Thanks, for the support... I think. But we need to get alot more people in on
    this. Adapter cable or pre-fab for pc, the guy still thinks its an unpopular idea.

    The guy at Hkems says that they have the ability to make such an adapter, "But that controller is not so popular" I am doubtful of that, the Classic is one of the best gamepads around in my opinion, and people are always trying to make hacks for it to use it on other consoles. Help me by coming over and showing them that people want this.
