RVL-101, controller options for GCN from USB/SD?
Hello all. New here but not new to hardware/software modding.
I have gotten my hands on the (in)famous RVL-101 with no hardware support for gamecube discs or controllers.
I've done my homework and have a good idea exactly where things stand with this unit.
a) It canNOT load gamecube discs (or burned media): No big deal here. It has NO support for gamecube controllers: Not a big deal, IF there's another controller option for GCN.
b) It CAN still support the software end of gamecube. I.e. it can load gamecube images from USB/SD on a modded unit.
My question is with "b)"
considering the unit has no support for gamecube controllers, what controllers CAN be used with gamecube on a wii RVL-101? If any?
My understanding is that when the wii "boots" a gamecube game, it cuts off the wii controllers and waits for input from a gamecube controller port (which obviously doesn't exist in this case).
So, what gives. Is there any controller that works with gamecube games booted on a new (RVL-101) wii?
In my readings I heard that about two years ago someone in the homebrew community was working on a way to use the "classic/ classic pro" controllers with gamecube games on wii. I have been unable to verify this ever went anywhere.
Another option would be if someone ever figured out how to run gamecube games while still booted in "wii mode", this would allow a workaround of the issue at hand.
Thanks for any info on this guys.
