I haven't tried HBC as I don't even have a Wii, but that shouldn't be the problem. You could give Swiss a try, it will output debugging information over slot B (must be enabled first). If the FTDI shows up on USB then it's working. Flashing it only changes some information in the descriptor that isn't relevant to proper functionality.

How would I make USB Gecko? Is it even possible in 2018? If so, please can you tell me where I can buy the parts. Can you use any XC9572xl or does it have to be a specific one? Thanks

What is the OP? Thanks for the quick reply.

Edit: Oh, it means original post.
Some items aren't on Farnell anymore so can I buy them anywhere else, thanks.

I am interested in making my own USB Gecko. Are the following part ok?

https://www.tme.eu/gb/details/xc9572xl1 ... -10vqg44c/
https://www.tme.eu/gb/details/ft245rl/u ... 45rl-reel/
https://uk.farnell.com/stmicroelectroni ... m%2Fsearch

Does it matter which 100nF 0603 SMD ceramic capacitor and 10uF 1206 SMD tantalum capacitors I use?

Thanks
