Alternative to Hori Gameboy Player gamepad?

Post by XC-3730C » Wed Oct 21, 2015 3:45 am

As we all know, the Hori gamepad designed for the Gameboy Player is the best due to it's SNES style design, and excellent D-pad, and that the Gamecube D-pad is too small and stiff.

Are there any worthy, cost effective alternatives with a good D-pad? The Hori gamepad is often $100-$150 on ebay, which I really don't want to pay.

A strong alternate would be a wireless Classic Controller (the kind that plugs into a wii remote) and a Wii to Gamecube adapter.

I'd suggest a wireless Nyko Wing if you can track one down

I considered that one, but the page don't say what the mappings are...

Take a look at the "Links & Downloads" section. There is a document with the mapping there.

The adapter is open source and you could build it yourself.

It sucks because for SNES, there is no select. Why there aren't 2 SNES mappings where you could keep Select as Select escapes me...but I guess I could live with it, considering Select is mapped to Y

I got a PS2 to GC Nyko converter, but it doesn't seem to work with the Gameboy Player

Where did you get that? Have you tried it with the Gameboy Player?
