    (Proof of Concept) Gamecube games in vWii on Wii U


    Published on May 31, 2013
    First of all no this isn't DIOS MIOS because that would never work.

    This is written pretty much from scratch and there are still many issues especially with the sound that's why I overlayed a nice music track.

    There is obviously no way to use a GC controller on a Wii U and getting wiimotes/CC to work is way too complicated, so what I am using here is a PS3 controller connected via USB.

    The Mega Man 10 channel is just my lazy way of loading sneek, don't need any fancy banners

    Nice! He just might beat teudj to it.

    Edit: I wonder if a 360 controller would work?

    This is awesome. From what I can find it is legit and from the guy responsible for dios mios.

    if USB controller is easier to implement than classic controller support I wish devolution would just add that. I am pretty sure you can get GameCube USB adapters.

    I thought that I heard something about GC Vc downloads coming to wii u.
    This is a very interesting approach to an alternative.

    Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Amie (probably misspelled lol) had mentioned they are considering it. But given how big GC games are (around 500mb usually after scrubbing) its not very practical. People will completely kill there bandwidth trying to download their favorite GC games.

    However if (and I do say if) this option exists, then users just may have a chance of running a GC game by an alternate method of downloading/uploading.

    GameCube has not been officially confirmed for virtual console. I think many around here want this so they can take their wii off the tv and put it in storage. Gba has been confirmed, which I find strange since its not on 3ds outside ambassador games and those games probably won't look right on the tv. MAybe they will be game pad only or enhanced versions. I think zero mission is my favorite metroid and that would be a must buy for me if they do it well.

    Have you seen how large some of the retail Wii U games are? 1.4gig plus some overhead for Wii U conversion is nothing compared to 17gigs for Assassin's Creed and 19 gigs for LEGO City Undercover, and I heard that there was a game clocking in at 23 gig, but I can't recall which one that is.
