u/thatJainaGirl · 167 pointsr/smashbros

As of right now, it's just the Mayflash Wii U/PC adapter, and it currently only supports one controller (all four ports act as P1), but it's a start!

u/RandomPandah · 19 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Just tried using the mayflash gamecube adapter, it works if you use pc mode! There isn't any noticeable delay.

Link to adapter:

EDIT: You need to have the black cable plugged into the dock (The white one isn't needed for only 1 controller, don't know about multiple controllers) and have your controller in the player 2 port.

EDIT 2: Thanks to /u/IcyAthene we know that the C-stick is not properly mapped and the analog stick is basically a DPad and that multiple controllers behave as one. I only tested it in mario kart so i didn't realize it :(

u/Deathrayer · 17 pointsr/NintendoSwitch If you don’t want to wait until 2019 to play smash with GCC you can get this adapter, which works just as well as the official Nintendo one, and even works for pc. I’ve owned it for almost 2 years now and haven’t had a single issue

u/Polarthief · 16 pointsr/smashbros

Same here, haven't tested mine on switch, but it is in fact Mayflash and works perfectly on Wii U.

(anyone reading this in the UK for the record, I live in the US, but the picture is the same and the company is also the same. Here's the link to the US one that I currently own)

u/HirokiProtagonist · 14 pointsr/smashbros

more info for /u/chickengrande:

Melee and Brawl (and mods for both) are emulated using [Dolphin] (, an open-source emulator that's available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. If your computer can run a modern game at a good fps, then it can most likely emulate smash.

For a controller, I'd recommend using a gamecube controller and a [gamecube->USB adapter] ( Of course, if you're just trying it out, you could use a PS4/xbox controller or even keyboard&mouse.

As for getting the game itself, the proper, legal way to do it is to buy the game disc and rip the ISO (the game file) using a modified wii. That said, if you use your creativity, it's not hard to find the files online (no asking for links!).

u/Turbulentclusterhunk · 13 pointsr/smashbros

I'm assuming that your controller already connects just fine to your pc. If you need an adapter, i'd recommend the [mayflash] (

Once that's done, you should follow the guide on anther's ladder to properly set up melee for online practice. Instead of the basic 5.0 Dolphin, anther's requires 5.9 Faster Melee build of dolphin. Anyway the guide can be found here:

As for online resources, ssbm tutorials has great videos detailing character specific tech (falco lasers, fox practice drills, marth chaingrab guide, etc.), universal tech (wavedashing, dashdancing, directional influence), and just general pieces of advice to newcomers.

I'd also recommend Uncle Punch training mode. This is a mod of melee's event mode designed to help practice universal tech such as L cancelling, smash di, or ledgedashing.

u/andtheZero · 11 pointsr/SSBM

Dolphin is free. Go to and follow their guide for downloading Faster Melee's most recent version. Faster Melee is a version of Dolphin that runs smoother for online play, and is pretty much required for playing people online using smashladder.

You're gonna need to download an ISO file of melee, which is basically the game ripped from the disc. You can try googling it and it shouldnt be too hard. Careful of sketch websites.

If you've been watching for a while you might know the basic terminology already but the SSBMTutorials youtube channel has a lot of good info about the tech. Basic things like L cancelling and Wavedashing can be a little awkward to understand without being shown.

It's a little tough to get rolling if you don't have a friend to play with all the time that's at your level, but the "Friendlies" tab in smashladder should work ok.

You're gonna need a gamecube adapter. You can buy the official nintendo one, or you can get the Mayflash 4 port. They're basically identical.

u/nidyz · 10 pointsr/smashbros

This is not true.

There isn't any best controller as it is pure preference, the older controllers generally have a stickbox that feels less resistant than the newer ones.
The coating on the new WiiU controllers is different aswell.

Also the official WiiU adapter has a great 3rd party equivalent from mayflash found here.

u/about_that_crazy · 9 pointsr/gaming

I don't have a wii u. Is there a difference in performance to this one on Amazon for $45 (fulfilled by AMZN).

u/Jakesta7 · 9 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have the Mayflash one and it works excellent. It was too difficult to find an official one back in the Wii U days. I'm assuming it works for Switch too. No issues whatsoever personally and it has nearly 5 stars on Amazon.


Figured I should clarify my comments here:

I do not own a Switch yet (plan to get one Black Friday), but I use it all the time on my Wii U and it works flawlessly. Based on reviews, it looks like it works flawlessly on the Switch as well. I can't imagine it would be any different.

u/Pseudogenesis · 9 pointsr/smashbros

Netplay is amazing now, and fairly easy to set up. Only thing you really need is a USB-GCC adapter which you can get for less than $20

u/FenrirW0lf · 8 pointsr/smashbros

People shouldn't buy that particular adapter anymore. It's old, has input delay, and has bad drivers on top of it. Mayflash makes a better version these days that's compatible with both Smash 4 and native input in Dolphin.

u/Broseph_McTatertots · 8 pointsr/Games

If you can find the official Gamecube adapter and don't decide to flip it on ebay for 5x the MSRP, there's that. It needs a special driver but that's not a big deal.

A better choice might be the recently re-released Mayflash GC adapter. This is it here. There are other models but this is the newest and best third-party one.

u/largepanda · 8 pointsr/pcmasterrace

OP used the official Wii U adapter, which is bloody expensive. I'd recommend the Mayflash adapter instead, which can behave either as the official adapter or can rewrite the inputs to a standard controller for use in things that aren't Dolphin.

u/dygeron92 · 8 pointsr/TwoBestFriendsPlay

I also remember that this Mayflash adapter can be used to play Nintendo Switch games with the GameCube controller. Apparently it's more compatible with that system than the official Wii U GameCube Adapter, but that was from a few months ago so I don't know how compatible it is now. The adapter is also $18.

u/ItsKipz · 8 pointsr/smashbros

PSA: Mayflash makes a clone adapter that works on Wii U, PC, and Switch just as perfectly as the official one and can be found easily on Amazon for under $20.

EDIT SECONDARY PSA: 8BitDo also makes a wireless 1-port adapter for switch and PC that allows you to connect a single controller to your Switch wirelessly, in tabletop, handheld, or docked mode.

u/tyjo99 · 8 pointsr/SSBM

Intel 530 HD will run melee at any resolution under 1080p. This one will probably work or this ebay filter. Any intel gen 6 laptop processor will work for the most part. You only need a graphics card that has a passmark score of about that can match or beat this if you want to run Project M a much more graphically intensive game on 2 monitors.


  • Buy a laptop that has 2 USB ports on the same side if you want to use rumble
  • Buy a laptop that has a low lag display, (aka most gaming laptops)
  • Buy a laptop that comes from a reasonably reputable source.
  • Dedicated GPU's are nice but not required
  • Use a Mayflash or Wii U adapter, most others will break very fast

    Other places to look:


u/Smilotron · 7 pointsr/SSBM

What sort of information did you need? What you heard is correct. Using any digital TV will require signal conversion from the Gamecube's analog output to a digital input for the TV, which takes a non-trivial amount of time to process. When going from a CRT to a digital TV, there is a noticeable delay between when you press a button and when you can see the move on the screen. It is best to try and find a CRT to practice on. They can be easily found on Craigslist, and people in your region's Melee Facebook group will probably post about available CRTs frequently.

If you don't have a CRT to practice on, then it might be best to get Faster Melee (An optimization of the Dolphin emulator to better emulate Melee) and an adapter and practice on your computer. This should have less lag than plugging your console in to a digital TV.

u/Sheecacaa3 · 7 pointsr/SSBPM

There's a bunch of guides and stuff as soon as you first enter the site.

>I want to do anther's ladder but I don't know exactly what it is

It's a match-making website where you can find matches, and chat with people in real time. The matches can be anything from Bo3 to Bo5 'ranked' ladder matches, to endless friendlies, to doubles matches. Basically, anything you could do at your local tourney, you can do on Anther's. (except money matchs afaik)

>Can I access it on my wii?

I mean.. maybe? You'd want to use your computer/mobile device if possible.

>Do I have to use an emulator on my laptop?

For Project M, most likely. You'd be hard pressed to find other people that still use the Wiimfi servers and play on their Wiis. The official way to play PM on Anther's is Dolphin Emulator, and there are plenty of guides to set it up, as well as optimize it if you have a slower computer.

>Can my laptop even run project m smoothly?

Well I play it on my laptop, and it runs fine (I even record while playing most of the time). Most modern computers can run it pretty well. It really depends on your specs though. You could get a lot of advice about that, but nothing beats just trying it out on your own and seeing if it works or not.

>If it is on my pc, than how am I supposed to use a gamecube controller?

There are multiple ways to get a Gamecube controller working on a computer, but the easiest/best ways are the official WiiU adapter or the Mayflash 4 Port adapter. They're both the best you can get in terms of lag reduction, but the mayflash is cheaper.

>Either way, how much lag is usually on it? I don't want to throw my timing off.

That really depends on your connection, your opponent's connection, and your own computer. It's usually anywhere between 10ms and 100ms of lag. I usually don't even play with people if the ping is over 60ms. (EC privilege lol) Many top players use netplay for a variety of reasons. Yes, the timing can throw you off if you're jumping from netplay to a tournament set, but if you take the time to adjust properly, then it really shouldn't be a problem. The MU experience and massive variety of playstyles you'll learn is something that Smashers have only dreamed of until recently.

I highly recommend netplay if you can get it working. Almost everyone has troubles setting it up at first, including myself, so don't get upset if it takes a couple days to get it working. I've probably clocked in over 1000-2000 hours on Netplay. It's great!

Hope this helps. Good luck!

u/Saibot117 · 7 pointsr/SSBPM
This one works as well, but I haven't use it and its a little less money
people say its good. look for a review or read the comments for it and decide :)

u/JBridge · 7 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Or you could use one of these third-party adapters.

u/RDDanna · 7 pointsr/SSBM

if you want to play on your computer, I'll recommend the most recent dolphin netplay build, that and complete instructions can be found here.

Of course, you will need a ROM of melee which you should definitely obtain legally and not through a download of it somewhere on the internet.

You will need a controller. I recommend looking at your nearest thrift store, or joining the facebook group for your local melee scene and asking if anyone would be willing to sell one to you. Or you can buy a new smash 4 controller.. Also you'll need an adapter to play on your computer, the mayflash 4 port is the best and cheapest option, but if you already have a wii u with gamecube adapter you can make that work too. Either way follow this guide to set it up. (make sure it's on wii u mode if you end up with the mayflash adapter)

All this being said, this is not the best way to play melee. The best way will always be to play on a wii or gamecube with a CRT TV (long story short, they have way less lag than HD TVs). If you really end up getting into melee you'll end up going this route eventually anyways, so for that I'd recomend agin your local scene for a gamecube/wii and a copy of melee, though copys of melee can be a bit expensive. For a CRT, check craigslist in your area, or just like streetcorners, you shouldn't have too much trouble finding one. Worst case, your local thrift store will probably only overcharge you a little for a decent CRT.

If you don't want to deal with buying a copy of melee. Then you can mod your wii to play a rom of melee. I recommend the 20xx hack pack that is made for melee training. It has a bunch of stuff you can learn to use, but you can also just play regular games on it, so it's good for everything outside of serious tournament use. Here's the official step by step guide for getting 20xx onto your wii.

Outside of that I think your best option is to see if there's any smash fests or tournaments going on around you and just go, hang out with people and play as much as you can.

Also, just some friendly advice, as great of a resource this reddit, or smashboards, or people in general can be, not everything everyone says is accurate, so do your research.

Have fun, and welcome!

PS, no hate for CS:GO from me. Plus I don't think you'll find too much hate for it here in general since mango plays it.

EDIT: I forgt my biggest piece of advice for new players. Spacing is as important, if not more important than tech skill. Make sure you're movement has a purpose. Good luck Dude/Dudette

u/Apollo748 · 6 pointsr/Games

If you're using an emulated wiimote, you need nothing.

If you are using a real, physical wiimote, you will need a sensor bar and a bluetooth dongle.

Most of us recommend the Mayflash Dolphinbar as it combines both into one device.

Update that to the latest firmware to alleviate a burn out problem.

We also support official GC controller adapters (From nintendo) and can emulate those for the most accurate GC controller input (surprisingly enough, we get better analog stick input).

This is also effectively the same as the official GC adapter.

We also support pretty much any GC -> USB adapter as long as it gives some sort of controller interface, but for obvious reasons we try to recommend one or two.

u/Vikings230 · 6 pointsr/SSBM

This is the USB adapter most people recommend. Also if you want to share an eBay listing for a controller here I'd be happy to check it out and let you know if it's a good deal or not!

u/StaffandHalf · 6 pointsr/smashbros

If you are looking for a 3rd party alternative might I recommend the Mayflash adapter? I have been using it for going on 4 years now, and it works great on the Switch/Wii U/PC.

Not sure if amazon link are ok but here ya go

u/sliverbaer · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

yeah, not really sure this is all that great because of that. Having the wired usb thingamambob might be the better route.

u/DavidL1112 · 6 pointsr/SSBM

nah you want to buy one of the adapters Nintendo made when Smash Wii U or Smash Ultimate came out, or one of the Mayflash offbrand ones. Then you can practice with your real controller which will lag less in the emulator.

Here's a link:

u/moleman_dgaf · 5 pointsr/SSBPM

Yep, just about everyone uses a GC controller for PM. If you want to play on PC, you'll need an adapter. This one works pretty well from what I've heard. I use an older Mayflash one and it works well too.

u/ericericerice · 5 pointsr/megalinks

you will need to download the Dolphin Emulator. it is compatible with most controllers, such as xbox, keyboard, etc. if you would like to use a gamecube controller, you would need to buy an adapter such as this one.

u/Sheikachu · 5 pointsr/SSBM

I have this one and I love it. If it has any input lag, I haven't noticed. It is PC native so it's easy to get it going, and you can use it for Smash 4 if you play that game too.

u/absolute-black · 5 pointsr/RivalsOfAether

am I being trolled

it's like the first thing on every page about them man

u/JayZesus · 5 pointsr/smashbros

For a controller I'd check at a game exchange near you. One that sells games from previous generations, the one near me has OG gamecube controllers for $25.

For the adapter I'd recommend the mayflash adapter, it's only $15 and works on Wii U too if you're gonna be using it for Smash 4.

u/voneahhh · 5 pointsr/nintendo

Mayflash GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U and PC USB, 4 Port

u/_wytOut · 4 pointsr/smashbros

You don't have to order Mayflash from China. I just ordered [this one]( and it's supposed to be here Monday. Guess I'll report back to confirm.

edit: Confirmed. Ordered on Thursday with Prime 2-day shipping. Arrived Monday and works perfectly. <3

u/zqwefty · 4 pointsr/SSBM

You should get the mayflash one; it supports direct input and can be more easily used outside of dolphin.

u/Kered13 · 4 pointsr/starcraft

It's originally a Gamecube game obviously, and can be played on Wii as well, but these days most people play on PC netplay. The netplay ladder for both Melee and PM. It has guides to get everything set up, but here is the guide you will want for Melee. You will need to find an NTSC v1.02 Melee ISO, I'm sure you can figure out how to do that ;)

To start off with you can use any PC controller or even a keyboard (it sounds crazy but some people have done it successfully). If you get more serious or you want to play in offline tournaments you will need a Gamecube controller and adapter. Adapters are pretty cheap, just make sure it's a WiiU compatible adapter like this one, Dolphin can detect it in WiiU mode and this will work best. New GC controllers are unfortunately much more expensive, and probably will be until the next Smash game comes out and they make a new batch. This is probably the biggest barrier to entry. You can find lightly used ones for more reasonable prices. It is also possible to repair more damaged controllers (there are guides for this and people who make a business out of it). Third party controllers are generally pretty trash, I would avoid those.

As for actually playing, this guide is the classic for advanced techniques, though it's a lot to take in at once. There are a ton of other guides on Youtube as well if you feel like you need a different explanation or just want something more modern.

u/pnpbios · 4 pointsr/raspberry_pi

I would have tried to find a way to reuse the original ports.

u/JohnsBonesJones · 4 pointsr/RivalsOfAether

I assume you're talking about a Gamecube controller, in which case this is what you're looking for.

u/master0fdisaster1 · 4 pointsr/DolphinEmulator

Either the offical GamecubeContoller adapter for WiiU by Nintendo


the Gamecube controller adapter for Wii U & PC by MayFlash.

Both have native support with dolphin and function pretty much identical.

Mayflashs has a pc mode where you can use the gamecube controller as a generic input device. So if you plan on using your gamecube controller for anything else besides dolphin/smash than you should get that one.

If you plan on using gamecube controllers in dolphin those two adapters are the only ones you should consider. Buttons are mapped automatically by dolphin(with these two adapters) so things like deadzones are exactly identical to the console. The native support also has the nice benefit of having no additional input lag.

u/TheRealEpoch · 4 pointsr/SSBM

Go onto smash ladder and play some friendlies! A lot of people there are nice (but don't be surprised if you encounter some salty people).

Next step is to get this and a GC controller (either from eBay or GameStop, just not 3rd party always official)

u/Froq · 3 pointsr/SSBM

Raphnet used to be the bees knees before the Wii U Adapter and Native Control support came out. All the ones saying that the Raphnet is better are probably just the older posts. The current best adapter is the Wii U Official USB Adapter. Inputs should be basically identical to console. You can try and get it from Gamestop. If not the mayflash one works fine you can get it from Amazon, Make sure you set it up using the guide that Smashladder provides, using Wii U mode.

u/herogerik · 3 pointsr/gaming

You need this. Plug and play, works great. No input lag. 4 controllers at once. LINK

Unfortunately, I don't know of any USB based controllers that have the same build quality as the original GCN controllers.

u/Luk101 · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

You can find a mayflash for 14.29 on amazon here:

And as for a good GC controller, yeah it's gonna cost around 25 bucks for a new smash one. Plus 35+22 is 57 not 77 soooo yeah math is hard. Also you can't play pm on a 2ds or a 3ds so I'm not exactly sure why you're posting to this subreddit.

u/Silverhand7 · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

If you want to use your gamecube controllers this adapter works pretty well. However, it works as DirectInput, so you'll need to run an additional program to get it working with games that only support XInput. Since you mentioned using it for fighting games though, I wouldn't recommend using the GC controller for most of those. The dpad on it is pretty awful, and very few people play fighting games on analog stick (with the exception of stuff that's designed around actual analog input, but that's not most 2D fighting games). If you're not too used to playing them with controller and don't mind learning something new I'd highly recommend just playing on keyboard. It sounds weird to a lot of people for some reason, but it's much closer to an arcade stick than a controller is (and is almost identical to a Hitbox if you know what that is). If you're interested in playing on keyboard and want more info on that I'd be glad to share more.

u/DaMattman · 3 pointsr/SSBM

Pick up one of the Mayflash adaptors. They work natively with Switches and are extremely easy to set up with Dolphin. I would also recommend an official gamecube controller instead of a 3rd party. They will generally be much higher quality and you should be able to pick one up at a decent price at a retro game store. It will save you a lot of future headaches I swear.

u/qwertylerqw · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

They’re expensive because they’re out of stock and scalpers sell them at the increased price. Nintendo hasn’t been great at restocking them, but there are a ton of alternatives such as the Mayflash adapter

u/sniglom · 3 pointsr/raspberry_pi

There are commercial adapters availble as well, but I don't know which one is best. Here is an example:

Good luck!

u/darderp · 3 pointsr/smashbros

The mayflash adapter and the official Nintendo one work with Windows 10.

I use the Mayflash one.

u/86themayo · 3 pointsr/wiiu

It really bugs me to play with a remote. Even the tablet is annoying to play with. If you and your friends are used to Melee, I would buy a GameCube adaptor (this one is only $15 on Amazon and a couple of controllers.

u/Captainjim17 · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

You can even get a Dreamcast to USB adapter and play it how it was originally meant to be played.

EDIT: sorry didn't notice you said Gamecube but you get the gist.

u/TemptedTemplar · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Mayflash would be your next best bet.

u/AllAboutTheKnee · 2 pointsr/SSBM

You can just grab this, and then follow instructions on smashladder (first guide here)

u/sapperRichter · 2 pointsr/WiiUHacks

I ordered this one and it works great, much cheaper as well.

u/HighRi12 · 2 pointsr/gaming

I'd rather get this, and if you don't already have a controller you can buy the new Smash GC controllers.

u/pauperofthepen · 2 pointsr/SSBM

Yeah, the 4 port -

I've seen that other people play on OSX so it def should be fine. A few months ago as a test I got dolphin and melee ran fine on it, so I know the program itself is fine, just need to know about the controller. Thanks!

u/Big_Poo_MaGrew · 2 pointsr/Games

I play keyboard but I've spent years playing on emulators so maybe not :p

A healthy portion of the community uses Gamecube Controllers but since the supports most controllers and the game is available for Xbone, I wouldn't be shocked if most people just used an Xbox controller.


u/personofblah · 2 pointsr/SSBM

wait are they really $55 on amazon?

Mayflashes are good too right? Link

u/TheBwarch · 2 pointsr/Brawlhalla

Mayflash adapter + newly manufactured GCN controller is a godlike combo imo.

Fairly cheap, compared to modern controller prices at least, and supported out of the box by the devs. The octagon gate on the analog stick in particular is really great for throws. (Unfortunately I feel Brawlhalla tries to use the analog triggers as digital, but I fixed that by changing my dodge button to the x button personally, ymmv)

u/Likesanick · 2 pointsr/smashbros

Have you considered the mayflash for pc and wiiu? its about 35 dollars and people who got it said that there's no input lag. I'd check it out.

u/BATH_SALTS_MAN · 2 pointsr/smashbros

Sorry for the confusion! It's this one. Wow the price doubled from what it was yesterday when I ordered one!

u/cam1170 · 2 pointsr/emulation

I don't know much about how to get Bluetooth information from an adapter that doesn't give you that information, but if you like there are USB adapters for GameCube controllers like the Mayflash adapter ( or Nintendo's official one ( Though I don't know about the compatibility with your controller if it doesn't function exactly like a real one.

u/portalsammy · 2 pointsr/SmashBrosUltimate

I'm not sure, but if there aren't you should check out the Mayflash 4 port adapter. It is known for having no input delay and works the same as the official one. I use one and can vouch for it, check it out here

u/Sp00ks- · 2 pointsr/smashbros

Been using the Mayflash for a few years now, and It hasn't given me any issues at all. Highly recommend.

amazon link

u/tinklefairy6 · 2 pointsr/AmazonUnder5

Where can i get a car for under $200? lolz

if your playing smash 4, you dont need a gc adapter to get started anyways. just use w/e wiiu controller you have, and if you like it enough, $18 dollars will be no big deal.

also ebay and craigslist are perfectly fine.

u/_bigb · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Buy a Mayflash adapter, the Amazon page says it is supported by the Switch. I've used one on my PC and Wii U with no issue.

u/mrlolz · 2 pointsr/SSBM

You should buy either the 4 port mayflash or the official wii u gamecube to usb adapter. Both of these make dolphin feel just like the gamecube in terms of controller inputs.

4 port mayflash:

Official Wii U:

I have the 4 port mayflash and it works flawlessly. A guide to setting them up in dolphin is found here:

u/yungpuff · 2 pointsr/SSBM

If you're gonna get an adapter make sure you get the 4 port mayflash one. Others will lag.

u/KorovasId · 2 pointsr/SSBM

AFAIK this is the mayflash adapter you want. It supports native inputs which basically means little to no input lag. The 2 port adapters work, but they add a noticeable amount of input lag.

u/NbAlIvEr100 · 2 pointsr/SwitchPirates

I haven't put Android on my Switch, but I do have Dolphin on my Galaxy Tab S4......which Gamecube adapter do you have? I ordered one on Amazon a while back and it did not do anything, never worked. I ended up returning it and getting the MayFlash adapter which I was told worked much better-- and it did, it works perfect and my Galaxy actually recognizes it. It may work on the Switch, but I'm not sure if the Switch even recognizes any of the adapters.

u/terryaki510 · 2 pointsr/smashbros

I've absolutely found melee to be a much more rewarding experience than any of the other games in the series. The 3rd party online through smashladder is ironically much better than online for any of the other games. As others have said, it's cheaper and more useful to get Faster Melee and a Mayflash adapter rather than getting a gamecube. This will allow you to play online. Check out SSBM Tutorials to learn more of the basics and figure out what character to play. Good luck, I hope you end up picking up the game. I'd also be down to teach you some of the basics if you're in the US and have decent internet, just dm me if you're interested.

u/gamecmdr · 2 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

Yeah Ima second the top comment here, if the melee Doc inspired you why not play melee? If you have any questions about getting into the scene feel free to ask, all it really takes is a gamecube controller and an adapter

u/DaFees · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

While it may be slightly over your budget, I would recommend this adapter,

Works perfectly with Dolphin and should work with everything else as well. I would recommend the official adapter that Nintendo created for the Wii U but that is even more out of your budget and Amazon currently does not directly carry it.

u/NScyte · 2 pointsr/smashbros

Here's the adapter:

Just a heads up also, when you do the setup for it (it involves a program called zadig, it's a very simple setup) you'll want to set it to Wii U mode, even though it has a PC setting on the switch.

u/the_noodle · 2 pointsr/SSBM

> A big life philosophy of mine is rhat people are too accepting of being okay with saying incorrect things.

I responded to the statement "2 port is cheaper and has direct." When I search "mayflash 4/2 port wii u adapter", they are both listed at $15.99: 4 port, 2 port

Ususally when people say "2 port" without any further clarification, they are referring to this piece of garbage. If you find a listing for this, it probably would be cheaper, because it's obsolete. But it doesn't "have direct", because at the time there was no official Wii U adapter to copy.

u/Nofriendsofmine · 2 pointsr/smashbros

This is cheaper and works great it’s all you need

u/minizanz · 2 pointsr/wiiu

all n64 vc games on the virtual wii need the classic controller pro. you can use the official ones, hori battle pads, or the pdp ones. if you install nintendont on the vwii you can use wiiU pro controllers, ps3, or ps4 controllers or the usb game cube adapters. all of them on the wiiu require a full pro controller of any gen (so non wiimote)


you can also inject roms so long as you own one game with that emulator. so if a game is not on the wiiU but you have it you can use caffeine on the current firmware to hack any rom into virtual console.


edit- there is also this guy from mayflash that will make your gamecube controllers plug into a wiimote and work as classic controller pro , mayflash also sells this guy that is better than the nintendo smash game cube adapter

edit2- if you plan on playing online you need the lan adapter as well, there are lots of 3rd party for that as well since you only need the same chipset (ASIX AX88772)

  • adapter (the most commonly used one)

  • controller

    alternatively you can check your local facebook marketplace or craigslist listings for cheaper controllers. max I'd pay for an indigo / black / platinum is $20, $25 if it looks brand new.
u/qchto · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

For the GC Controllers I use an unofficial adapter for WiiU which is directly recognized by Dolphin (I have never need to change it from WiiU mode, so an official one should work too). But of course, this is PC, so as long as there is a way to recognize the input from a port, you can get it working eventually (as has been the case since time immemorial).

For the Wiimotes, a USB bluetooth 4.0 dongle is more than enough as long as you let it interface directly with the emulator through continual scanning (once synced everything works, speaker included). Also, for the sensor bar I use an old wireless baterry powered one with rechargable AAA batteries, but if I were looking for one now I'd get a USB powered one.

Oh, and btw, that same bt dongle can also support DS4 / DS3 / Ouya / generic controllers connected to it at the same time as the Wiimotes, so it's definitelly worth the $10 (I didn't include newer Xbox controllers for the simple fact I've never tried them over bluetooth, but they should work too).

u/TheAntiTrouser · 1 pointr/tales

I actually just got the game last night as well, and I'm liking it a lot. Much nostalgia.

If you want to spend a few bucks, you can get this gamecube-to-PC controller adapter. Personally I'm playing with a 360 controller (until my custom xbone controller comes in Sept) and it works great.

u/MoonMax · 1 pointr/teenagers

I'd buy:

u/carsonkaranian · 1 pointr/smashbros

You'll have to get an adapter too, I reccomend the mayflash 4 port:

Just follow this guide to set up, it's very quick:

Make sure to read the whole guide, USE WII U MODE NOT PC MODE FOR DOLPHIN

u/Unit789 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

If you have a GameCube controller using one of these can get you set without too much trouble.

You do have to install some kind of driver in a roundabout way that I don't remember right now but a quick Google search should give you what you need.

I've been enjoying sunshine and Luigi's mansion for a year or two now with mine on both my laptop and desktop

u/Pyr0Byt3 · 1 pointr/emulation

This one also works natively in Dolphin. When switched to Wii U mode, it's functionally identical to the official adapter, as far as I can tell.

u/THE_GREAT_PICKLE · 1 pointr/smashbros

Agreed. I bought this one when the game first came out and it has worked perfectly.

u/silent_blizzard · 1 pointr/smashbros

Well it is true that most 3rd party adapters suck, but specifically the Mayflash 4 Port is really good. It was pretty much the standard like 4 years ago when official adapters were out of stock for months. I mean just look at the amazon reviews. It has almost 2 thousand reviews, at 4.5 stars. Trust me, it's more than legit.

u/ThatGuy_There · 1 pointr/smashbros

There's some two-for packs at that price I came across on, but apparently, I need an adapter to plug them into the Switch?

Plugging these into this ... am I doing that right?

u/Senzu · 1 pointr/DolphinEmulator

It was this model

And yes, I am using the native wiiu mode for the dolphin 5.0 version.

u/nuggster69 · 1 pointr/smashbros

Mayflash or Official Nintendo adapters are the only ones that give console-like performance with ZERO input lag. Others will not offer the same experience, usually with a few more milliseconds of input lag.

u/Rhonder · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I assume this is the mayflash adapter you're referring to?

I bought this in December and it works great, I've absolutely used multiple gamecube controllers at once with it. A lot of the time set up is a little fussy though. It wont always automatically detect the controllers, you have to like manually go to "Controller Set Up" and like "Search For Controllers" first. Then all of the gamecube controllers show up as USB controllers. I've used them to play Mario Kart and Nine Parchments with people~

u/sboles66 · 1 pointr/smashbros

If you are talking about these, they support rumble, but don't work with VC. These act like gamecube adapters.

These are probably what you're referring to. They will have some extra lag, but will work on both Wiis and Wii Us. Anything that you can use a classic controller with, this will work with. So yes, most VC games.

u/poopstixPS2 · 1 pointr/smashbros

> does this make the official wii u adapter better than the raphnet one now input lag wise ?

Yes. The new builds have native GC adapter support. This means the adapter will be lagless. AFAIK, the only two adapters that work natively with Dolphin are the official Wii U GC adapter, and the new Mayflash adapter.

As for the monitors, I have yet to actually try the new build with a native GC adapter. I'm anxious to see if the input lag is indeed indistinguishable from a CRT. According to the numbers I've seen in my hours upon hours of reading on this matter, a CRT will start displaying the next frame sooner than an LCD; but the LCD will finish the entire frame before the CRT. This is of course, assuming a gaming grade LCD monitor with low lag.

I think the only thing that's been holding back LCDs is the fact that most people have been using them with consoles instead of an emulator. Using a PC+emulator circumvents the issue of turning an analog signal into a digital one (console to LCD), since the PC's video card outputs a digital signal natively.

u/l5555l · 1 pointr/smashbros

The one with 2 ports is not natively supported by dolphin, and that's most likely what is causing the input lag. I had this adapter a while ago and it lagged pretty bad (I'm assuming this is the one you have?). I recently bought this adapter and have almost zero noticeable lag on my 2 ms response time monitor.

u/andraes · 1 pointr/wiiu

Go get a mayflash one, or any other knock off. They work just a well (if not better: PC mode).

u/dmckean44 · 1 pointr/AlienwareAlpha

As far as controllers go I think most people would be better off buying one of these three adapters:

and real Nintendo branded Gamecube controllers like these:

The reason I recommend this is because the latest development builds of Dolphin have native controller support built in. This means you can just setup the adapter to work with Dolphin and then plug in your Gamecube controllers and you're ready to go with no additional setup. The controllers auto calibrate just like on a real console and you can even unplug controllers and plug them back in during gameplay and everything will still work. It's works really awesome.

u/IAmMTheGamer · 1 pointr/RandomActsOfGaming

Could I ask for two small things that go together?

A Mayflash GameCube Adapter, because the GC controller is the easiest for me to use w/ a disability

And a mic stand that I can't find the link to right now, I'm in a class.

Thanks for doing this, really appreciate it!

u/zero_space · 1 pointr/SmashBrosUltimate

I just use the PDP GC controller. $20-$25 bucks, it feels like a GC controller and his digital shoulder buttons. Its USB so you don't need a GC adapter. Looks sweet too.

These are the ones on Amazon every seems to like

u/RyanFromQA · 1 pointr/DIY

This: and don't skimp. Get the rPi 3, get one of these, disassemble it, and wire it up to the controller ports on the game cube, use the power supply to power one of these internally, and get one of these and wire it up to the power switch. Then figure a way to reuse one of the back ports with an HDMI extender.

... or whatever.

u/legacyblade · 1 pointr/RetroPie

Ah, that's a shame. I'm pretty sure only the mayflash one works.

It's not particularly expensive, so if you really want to play with gamecube controllers, you should get it.

(By cheap one that works on the wiiU, do you mean the official nintendo one? I'm unaware of any that work on the wiiU aside from the mayflash one and nintendo's official one)

u/Apeirohaon · 1 pointr/smashbros

The wii u GC controllers work, yeah

There isn't a universal adapter, but they're only two main choices

  1. the official GC/Wii U adapter, from Nintendo

  2. the four-port Mayflash adapter. This has the advantage of potentially being able to work with non-smash things but I'm iffy if the details here.
    This is what I use, so I can vouch for it personally
u/NoStopImDone · 1 pointr/SSBPM

Not sure of model, but I bought this one:

I just noticed that it says that the adapter works with mac under the PC mode. Does this mean I have to run my mac through bootcamp? It works fine with one controller, just nothing more than that.

u/clown_balls · 1 pointr/RivalsOfAether
u/flipmyfedora4msenora · 1 pointr/nintendo

ive heard people saying that about this adapter but this one shouldnt have any input lag afaik

u/Jedi_Pacman · 1 pointr/GameSale

[This] ( is what I've been using for the past 3 years and it works great.

u/dragon-mom · 1 pointr/wiiu

Haven't used that one, but this one is generally considered the best AAIK. Longer cable than Nintendo's and works easy on PC.

u/someroastedbeef · 1 pointr/smashbros

Just play on your PC, it's super easy to use and theres virtually no input lag. Much more convenient because you can load up PM instantly rather than waiting forever on the Wii, plus you can play vs others online

u/Scrambled209 · 1 pointr/smashbros

Have heard only bad things about the 2 port, not sure if it actually has any issues but still probably best to avoid it. Get the 4 port instead. amazon link

edit: Here's the official smashladder controller guide. Definitely read this if you haven't already.

u/mjike · 1 pointr/emulation

I have a couple of controller questions. I'm currently trying to assemble a collection of platform specific controllers to give a bit more authentic feel.

First I'm wanting to go wireless Gamecube and I currently own a trio of Wii-U Battle Pads, 2 are PDP one is Hori. I'm debating between picking up the Mayflash wireless Wii adapter or a pair of Wavebirds and a Mayflash USB adapter. Will the Battle Pads get the job done in Dolphin and if so would they be recognized properly(I'm assuming the Wavebirds will)? The former route is definitely has the financial advantage as would look much better next to my Mario and Luigi Wiimotes(provided I can ever get Win10 to connect to them).

My second question is regarding Colecovision and Intellivision controllers. A while back I stumbled on a site that offered an adapter bundle that would do Coleco, Intellivision, Atari, and a few other old controllers. Unfortunately I didn't bookmark it and haven't yet been able to find it again. I do remember the bundle was very pricey but to me seemed to be worth it. Does anyone have a clue what I might be looking for?

u/UNSC_John-117 · 1 pointr/DolphinEmulator

Honestly, I tried a USB controller and I never could get it to work. I’ve been using Mayflash’s USB GC hub for years and it’s worked perfectly even with my Wavebird.

Really easy to setup for Dolphin too.
This tutorial says you can use the official adapter but the same method works for this too

u/lolzerker · 1 pointr/wiiu

Are you talking about this one?

u/I_Object_Your_Honour · 1 pointr/RivalsOfAether

I start it before, then load the game. Try both modes of input if you can't get it working.
I personally use a Mayflash adapter, so I have a dedicated PC Mode on the adapter. I'd suggest using that if you can't get it working at all.

u/Aperture_Kubi · 1 pointr/gaming

If you already own the WiiU, the Mayflash GCN conroller adapter works with both PC and the WiiU.

u/aregularwhitekid · 1 pointr/oneplus

u/cowsareverywhere · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Some people like hooking up other controllers, another great thing about gaming on PC. The Steam Controller works amazingly well for Wii motion games for example. Or you could hook up a GameCube controller using this to play Melee or Brawl.

u/Dbash56 · 1 pointr/smashbros

I personally use a mayflash adapter and it works great on the Switch for Ultimate and as a bonus you can use it on PC.

u/cgroi · 1 pointr/smashbros

It wasn't being detected by my PC when I had it set to Wii U mode.

The mayflash adapter should work fine. Also, I flaired your post this time, but please remember to flair all of your posts from now on.

u/MemeTroubadour · 1 pointr/wiiu

You need an adapter. The official one is hard to get because Smash players buy fuck tonnes of them, but you have other options such as the Mayflash adapter which is cheaper and compatible with PC, but apparently not without issues.

What game do you wanna play, by the way ? 'cause I should warn you that GameCube controllers are not compatible with most games on Wii U. Only Smash and apparently some Virtual Console titles.

u/rhinoflipper · 1 pointr/RivalsOfAether

Although Xbox controllers are certainly 'plug-and-play' (as you might expect, since Microsoft owns both Xbox and Windows), if you get the Mayflash 4-port Gamecube adapter, Gamecube controllers will also require no setup. The official Wii U adapter also works, but I think you have to install some drivers first (which is still really easy).

u/NotAloneInMyBasement · 1 pointr/DolphinEmulator

I own this adapter and it works well.

u/uhDark · 1 pointr/pcgaming

Sure do! You can use the one that accompanies a Wii U, but I use this one. If you are looking for a place to do some matchmaking, check out Anther's Ladder. I can normally find a match in under a minute, and Project M is much less popular than melee. There are guides for setting up Netplay on that website, and that whole community is super friendly.

u/deep_333 · 1 pointr/fightsticks

You do not need to carry both of them around. You can use the button re-mapper function on the included smashbox's software to mimic the hitbox layout. It will support all fighting games that offer legacy controller support, if you have a mayflash adaptor (

I have the following re-mapped profile saved and simply load it up if i want to use it as a hitbox. You won't have a PS button, but you will have start/options.

This would be the button reassignment (compare with PS4 controller)


X= X; Y= Y; A= A; B= B; Z= RB/R2; L = LT/L1; R= R1/RT; A+B = LB/L2

Left = X1; Down = X2; Right = Y2; Up = Y1

- Set Mayflash adapter switch to “PC” for use on PS4.

I never use my right thumb for up, only the left thumb. So, it works for me. You can also dual mod the smashbox by installing a ps4+ brook board or Brook UFB in it and switch back and forth between the PCBs if you want your PS button, touchpad button, etc. It may be your ALL-BOX!! : )

u/lu3mm3l · 1 pointr/TrialsGames

There's an official adapter for up to four gamecube controllers (or eight with two of those but without rumble support) on the switch (since a lot of smb fans love it):

Mayflash offers the same for a quarter of the price:

And they even brought a smb special edition gc controller:


If you already own a gc controller this might be the best option. It's a shame they didn't include some analog triggers in the first place.

u/tiglionabbit · 1 pointr/MarioMaker

The Wii U is great. Can you get it cheap anymore though? They've ceased production, so the price is only going to go up, right?

At first I was going to say, yeah, totally, get a Wii U! But then I remembered the console is only part of the investment.

Downloading Games: If you're like me and hate discs, you'll want to get a hard drive like this one. The Wii U only has 32GB of internal storage and some games take a lot of space. For example, Smash Bros is 15.6GB. And yes, you need a weird external USB hard drive with its own wall plug since the console won't provide enough power on its own.

Multi-Player: If you want to play with other people, you'll need some more controllers. Got any WiiMotes laying around? Those work, though many games like Nintendo Land require the Wii Motion Plus ones specifically.

Playing Smash Properly: If you really want the authentic Smash Bros experience, you'll also need a GameCube adaptor or two and a bunch of GameCube controllers. You can use up to 8 controllers in this way.

The costs start to add up a bit. Though, maybe just for me because I like Smash Bros. There's a lot of other good games on there though. Definitely check out Mario 3D World.

u/rustinhieber42 · 1 pointr/SSBM

I'm probably just echoing what everyone else said, but here we go.

Fox is technically the best character in the game, but I wouldn't recommend him for a beginner personally. The tier list assumes that all players play as perfectly as possible, and the things that make Fox good require you to press a lot of buttons very quickly at very specific timings, which is more difficult for newer players. To find out which character (I'd recommend just one to start) you want to main, I'd recommend watching some professionals play matches and see if any of them catch your eye. The easiest characters for beginners to pick up are probably Marth or Sheik, but the most important thing by FAR is to main the character YOU want to main. If you want to main Fox, do it! If you find that you really have your heart set on Kirby, don't let anyone stop you! Hell, I'm from Minnesota, and our 3rd ranked player is a Kirby main. You have to play with whoever YOU find the most fun to play with, otherwise practicing won't be fun, and you'll never get anywhere.

Oh, and get a gamecube controller. Get a gamecube controller. Get a gamecube controller. They're practically designed for Smash Bros, and they're the only controllers you'll be able to use in tournaments if you decide to go to any in the future. Don't get a cheap knock-off either, they're not nearly as good and they break easily. Get this one, or a different color of this one. It's by far the best for a beginner. If you happen to get really into Melee, you might want to get one of the older editions of the GC controllers, as they're considered to be slightly better, but they're way more expensive. If you're using Dolphin, you'll also need an adapter. It might be a little annoying to get set up, but Dolphin Emulator's site has troubleshooting for every possible issue.

Welcome to the community!

TL;DR Play whoever you want but I'd personally recommend not Fox for a beginner, Marth or Sheik would be "easiest". Get a real GC controller and an adapter to use on Dolphin.

u/SundownKid · 1 pointr/AskGames

You can, even on PC:

On the BC Wii it has 4 Gamecube ports.

u/ombranox · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch
u/pjunk · 1 pointr/iconsgg

You need an adapter to make it work. I use the $20 Mayflash adapter, it works for PC, Wii U and Switch, and Dolphin emulator.

u/tepidstringysemen · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Assuming you mean this adapter, it 100% works with multiple controllers on the Switch, just like on Wii U. You just have to set the toggle to Wii U mode, not PC. I just tested it in Mario Kart 8 with 3 different GC controllers and 1 set of Joy-Cons (because I don't have a 4th GameCube controller). Each one worked separately and I was able to control 4 separate karts at the same time.

u/Ringosis · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch
u/shrubii · 1 pointr/Melee

Yeahhhh that might be the problem. I suggest you buy an official adapter or mayflash one.

u/TheRealLasagna · 1 pointr/gangbeasts

I've used 4 Gamecube controllers with the Mayflash Gamecube adapter that has the PC/Wii U switch along with 4 Wii U Pro controllers with the Mayflash PC adapter and gotten 8-player to successfully work. I haven't needed to use any programs like x360ce so it seems as though it'll at least accept PC controllers (as opposed to Xbox controllers which likely work too). You just have to get used to how the buttons are placed, which is generally well-done on the Gamecube controller.

So, to more specifically answer your question, you can definitely use a basic Gamecube to USB adapter if it's the Mayflash one. The Nintendo one likely works with a bit more effort, here is an article that hopefully will help. Disclaimer: I haven't tested this method since I have the Mayflash adapter; also the article is from 2014, however the website seems trustworthy on the subject.

Also, I haven't tried PS4, Xbox 360, or Xbox 1 controllers, however I have had success mixing two different types of controllers (mentioned above) with success, so I would imagine it'd still work (as long as the PC recognizes the controllers).

Good luck!

u/Imkyu · 1 pointr/SSBM

What about this adapter ? It comes with 4 ports and it's cheaper.

u/RashAttack · 1 pointr/SSBM

Yeah sure man, either get the Mayflash adapter (which I'd recommend because it has "native" mode, and PC mode, so you can freely use it with other games besides dolphin):

Or you can get the official Nintendo adapter, which looks better and also works (and you've got the official Nintendo quality):

u/SpazAmericanYT · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

I have a few GameCube controllers each for 15 shipped.

I also would highly recommend the mayflash 4 port adapter:

This adapter allows for a great feature on dolphin where there is no input lag going from the controller to the pc. You can also find these on ebay as well for about the same price

u/TheRealMaynard · 1 pointr/Rainbow6

Then what is this sherlock?

What you probably have is the new wireless ones they made for switch, which are not actual GC controllers. Go to any tournament and you'll see a ton of people using adapters like the above.

Otherwise please show me the GC controller port on your Wii U / switch lmao

u/oxidius · 1 pointr/GCNintendontLoader

Yeah, it looks like the mayflash with 4 ports works too.

I ordered this one, I'll let you know when I'll have every thing set up (probably end of next week).

u/TheRealLT · 1 pointr/DolphinEmulator

When I say it did not work, it simply produced the same results as when I have the PC mode enabled.

u/kipahlord13 · 1 pointr/smashbros

Unfortunately, no.

The Nintendo adapter is only meant to be compatible with the WiiU, and it is a godsend that Dolphin supports it natively. Unless you are using the Mayflash adapter which can switch to PC mode instead of WiiU mode, there is no other use for such an adapter.

I would strongly recommend getting the Mayflash adapter, here

u/SwallowRP · 1 pointr/SSBPM

As they probably will be. You live in US? I just buy 'em off amazon

The third party mayflash WiiU one works just as well:

u/rotanagol · 1 pointr/Vive

I use a Mayflash adapter to play with a GameCube controller, so the controls are identical to the original game.

u/MoreMarMar · 1 pointr/RivalsOfAether

Hello, I just bought RoA and I've got the same results as this using the Mayflash adapter and this controller, but when I'm on any character select screen (versus mode, practice mode, etc..), the cursor slowly moves up automatically. Yet, when I use THIS controller, everything is perfectly fine. This leads me to believe the problem is with that first specific controller. Any thoughts or comments? I could keep using the black one, but I want to use the white one perfectly as well.

u/charliefuckstick · 1 pointr/Gamecube

Just gotta grab one of these and do a small bit of configuring. They even make one for wiimotes. I've got both, and they're pretty awesome.

this is the most used gc to switch/pc adapter next to the nintendo official ones. very cheap and work great, i have bought two.

u/Trazac · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

This controller on Amazon is probably a little bit nicer, and it doesn't ship from Hong Kong.

If you already have a gamecube controller, or a few of them laying around, your best bet is something like this adapter.

I have one of these controllers that works very well with dolphin.

u/Lionirdeadman · 1 pointr/RetroPie

No, not multiple adapters. Multiple controllers from the same adapter. I would be using the 4 controller supported adapter shown here which would have multiple controllers from the same USB port, basically.

u/Treypopj · 1 pointr/Gamecube

I know a few methods to do this

  1. If you have a Wii U (which supports HDMI) you can soft mod (link on how to do it) it to play GameCube games with a cheap capture card.
  2. You could buy Wii component cables (they work on the GameCube) and record it with this capture card.
  3. Emulate it on the pc with dolphin and use a GameCube controller adapter to play them with real GameCube controllers.

u/IncognitoCactus · 0 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I personally use a USB to gamecube adapter like this one to play gamecube games, rather than just one controller.

u/Caseyfam · -1 pointsr/nintendo

If you do end up ordering online, I suggest getting this Mayflash adapter instead since it works on both Wii U and PC (there's a little switch on the back that sets the mode).

I own both the Nintendo adapter and the Mayflash adapter. Literally the exact same thing (build quality is very similar as well) except the Mayflash adapter is typically cheaper and also works on PC. You can finagle with software to get the Nintendo one to work on PC, but the Mayflash one is recognized as native D-Input.

u/KingAbsol · -15 pointsr/smashbros

If you wanna play optimally for when the game comes out, you should buy a Gamecube Controller adapter (this is a third party one, but it works better than the first party one.), and ofc a Gamecube controller to go with it . There are cheaper controllers, but they're all third party and not very good at all. The Gamecube controller is actually considered the only actual good controller to use for competitive , so you should buy these.
