    I was thinking about this a while back, and figured I'd see if anyone else was interested. The idea is to use a N64 to GC converter to play with a N64 controller. The only problem is the controls built into the ROM. I'm sure I can wire up a converter. Whadda' all think?

    Was just browsing Wikipedia.com, and found a table showing some of the controls for the VC and its corrisponding controls. About halfway down the page, it shows the N64 controls. Interesting...

    Oh jesus, the last thing I'm worried about is my post count. If I was, I'd be making fun of the 1000's of members here who seem to be half-retarted. Thanks for contributing to the thread, eh?

    Yeah, but others DO care. I personally only care because the mods were banning people for it. Like I said, there is an EDIT button...

    Its a great idea to get the retro feeling back again but personally I would stick with what I have at the moment (personal opinion). But if you feel like its the "thing" then go ahead.

    Oh yeah, thats the whole premise. Making an adaptor that converts the N64's output end to the GC controllers end to plug into the Wii.
