    I want to make a Wii U Pro Controller using a GameCube controllers shell.

    As the title states I would very much like to take a GameCube controller and Wii U pro controller and combine them in some way using the shell of the GC controller. With Devolution now being able to use Wii U pro controllers I think it would be very awesome to have the option to use a GC controller even if it's not really a GC controller. However I don't know if this is actually possible...chances are it's just a pipe dream. So I'd like to get the input of others who may have more knowledge of this kind of thing. Would it be possible to take a WaveBird and Wii U ProCon and somehow put the guts of the Wii U controller in the GC pad? Not nessisarily transferring even the buttons and such but at least whatever it is that enables the controller to communicate with the system.

    Anyway, it's just an idea I had. Any input would be appreciated, I just don't want to go spend $50+ on controllers to toy with only to find out it was in vein.

    What about that mayflash adapter, wouldn't that be a good enough solution with the button mapping working in USB Loader GX?

    True. My concern about that was I don't know how well it works, especially with Devolution. I've looked around on various sites but no one has any info on how well it interacts with Devolution (namely how accurate the controls work, ie is there any lag?).

    Yeah, I haven't tried it. The analog triggers I would think would be the only problem. These work fine with a PS3 controller. If you frankenstein a controller together won't you have the same issues with the triggers though? I just don't see how frankensteining it would be an advantage over the adapter (other than not having a wire)

    I suppose you make a good point. May flash might be better, being that it plugs into the CC port on the WiiMote it may let the analog shoulder buttons actually work (considering the old CCs also had analog shoulder buttons)
