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!

The GV-USB2 is probably one of the best cheap cards out there. If you want an example of the quality, here's a recording from back when I was using it. I'm pretty sure it can look even better, as I was only using the RCA cables, and not the S-Video input. Just make sure you get a powered splitter like this or this (for S-video) so you can send the signal to both the TV and the recording device without lag.

Just make sure you set the device up properly and use some kind of deinterlacing. For ease of use I'd just recommend using the built in de-interlacing options in OBS.

Edit: If you're short on money and don't want to spend extra on a splitter for live capture, then you can just save your match replays using Legacy TE, and then record them through the recording device using your computer screen to navigate the menus. This requires extra work though, and it can be easy to forget to save your replays. I'd just recommend getting the capture device and the splitter so you can record it all in one go.

u/Pseudogenesis · 6 pointsr/SSBPM

I personally really enjoy messing with Wii homebrew stuff, and since it's in the end-of-life stage it's pretty much polished to a mirror sheen at this point. Very hard to screw up.

I believe I followed the Complete Softmod Guide last time I did it, which is extensive. But I just discovered that some of the amazing folks behind also did a Wii version over at I've never used it, but is fantastic and this looks solid as well. If you end up going with the Wii route, I recommend using one of these two guides. (Anyone with more knowledge, feel free to call me out if I'm spreading bad advice right now)

As for adapters, this Mayflash 4 port one is the gold standard and less than $20. I personally don't use GCCs for anything other than Dolphin on my PC but it's still a fantastic purchase.

Good luck, whatever you choice you go with! Long live PM

u/Oosband · 2 pointsr/SSBPM

The reviews seem more positive and people can get it to work easier. Looks like it's a repackages EasyCap with some firmware changes.


There's also this:

Which has significantly more positive reviews and supports 720x480 resolution. I'd probably read up a bit more on that and purchase it if it's good for what you need. The price is higher but the video quality will look better.

I looked up some Diamond VC500 quality tests on YouTube and they seem much better than EasyCap recordings, and most of the videos weren't even rendered properly (black bars, resampling enabled). So yeah, I'd go with the Diamond VC500 for sure.

u/TheBalcony · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

Perhaps the most important and expensive is making sure you have a good computer or laptop that can handle streaming. Hopefully you or a friend in the scene can make that happen, 'cause that will be the biggest expense.

In terms of actual stream equipment, I'm going to assume you want the cheaper options:

  1. Capture Cards

  1. Microphone:

  1. Stream Software (Free):

u/hamie96 · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

I feel like I should maybe create a guide or something in the future for how to properly record a P:M game.

I noticed you're looking at a relatively cheap Capture Card. The one you're looking at is generally considered to have poor quality and can only output a maximum of 480i. The only Capture Card I've used (and still own) in that price range is this. It can output a maximum of 480p (which is the highest P:M will go on a Wii anyway) and works really well with VirtualDub (the software you will be using). You'll also want to pick up an S-Video Cable for the Wii so the video quality is decent.

Some people will recommend that you buy a Dazzle and while a Dazzle is decent, I'd recommend staying away from it due to the massive headaches a Dazzle Recorder can bring upon you. Some models have issues with sound, some only output 480i (not nearly as good as 480p) etc.

The next step is to download Software which will capture the game that is being played. I'd highly recommend VirtualDub as it will work with the video card listed above and can also function as a video editor afterwards.

All videos that are recorded will need to have lossless codec that they go through in order to decrease the original file size. This can take a 1-hour game original video from being 500gb to 100gb. Basically, if you record without one, you'll eat up your hard drive space fast. The best (atm) for codecs that don't lose any quality is HuffYuv. The video quality will be near 1:1 as you see on the TV while also not having a gigantic file size. You can also use Xvid if you want.

Now you'll want to edit your video. Simply use VirtualDub with simple edits. Once you have your final video, you'll want to encode the file by using a product called MeGUI. It'll encode the file into x264 and NeroAAC using a video editing language AviSynth. It's all pretty easy to use.

If you want to record on your TV and computer at the same time, it'll be a little bit of a headache. Your best bet is to buy splitters and AV female to female adapters. It may look like a mess when you finally get it setup, but it'll still have no lag (or less than 1 frame).

If you have anymore questions, feel free to ask. There are some really good tutorials and guides over at Something Awful LP Wiki. Even though it's for Lets Plays, it'll still be able to help you since you're trying to effectively do the same thing.

EDIT: You could also drop money on an Elgato HD Game Capture, but they're really expensive. The quality is second-to-none though.

u/Midnight_B1u3 · 1 pointr/SSBPM

For any kind of smash, even casually, it's more than definitely worth buying one. I was told this probably 100 times before I switched off nunchuck, and after a day or 2 of adjustment, I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Even casually, the GameCube controller is the quintessential controller for all smash (64 included) and you should look into buying either a Smash 4 GC controller, or a GC Legacy controller (a new original GC controller). Make sure you don't buy 3rd party though, as they feel and play like literal ass and may turn you off GC controllers entirely. \

It is important to make sure any controller you buy is first party! I can't stress that enough! They shoulod have either a "Nintendo Gamecube" or smash ball on them, if they are black (unless they're made by a reputable customs maker) don't purchase them.

u/Kitanamonk · 27 pointsr/SSBPM

Netplay is totally still a thing, haven't noticed a drop in players since sm4sh, in fact its been growing steadily for a while:

This is the standard adapter,

but you can also get

Both work great.

Conectivity depends on yours an their internet, if both are good you won't even notice your playing online.

Its Windows 8 compatible, I reccomend you check out the guide:

u/flannel_K · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

For your aspect ratio problem: I presume the image is squished on your recordings? I'm not familiar with the AVHD, but check for an option in your recording settings regarding 4:3/16:9 capture, I know I have to tell my Elgato to record in 16:9 as compared to 4:3.

Also, component at 480p is the best quality you can get from the Wii. Are you using splitters to get the signal to both your TV and capture card? If you are, you may want to invest in a powered component distributor (like this one) to ensure you're not losing signal quality from splitting.

Hope that's helpful :D

u/MuonManLaserJab · 1 pointr/SSBPM

> Am i ready for a tourney yet?

Yes, definitely. I'm not saying you'll win, but you should definitely go. They're fun, you'll get to play even after you're eliminated, and it's totally different from playing CPUs -- or even from playing humans outside of competition. Do you get a lot of play against humans?

Also, regarding your joystick:

PS: I would have told you to go ahead to a tournament even if you were much, much worse.

u/AGrainOfDust · 2 pointsr/SSBPM

It looks like a third party controller, while it would work for a bit those controllers fall apart really fast.

I would recommend something like this or this. While it's a bit more expensive it'll last you years and years instead of maybe a month like the third party controller will.

u/wuzup11 · 2 pointsr/SSBPM

Well then it depends on how much more you're willing to invest. If you've got a USB flash drive with 8 or more GB free and/or don't have a Brawl disk, then you can follow this guide to install Homebrew and USB Loader GX (which can also be used to load any other games you decide to put on the flash drive, though other games will require more space), but it'll be a little more effort, plus like a 0.5% chance to brick your Wii.

On the other hand, if you do have a Brawl disc, 2GB non-SDHC SD cards are really cheap on Amazon.

Take your pick, but also do your homework. If you don't have the necessary components, at least take a look at what it would take to procure them.

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/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/RyanYags · 1 pointr/SSBPM

I use this and have a 1 ms gaming monitor, and even my stingiest and tech skill orientated friends are happy to play on it.

u/Oshtoby · 1 pointr/SSBPM

This is something I posed in a thread exactly like this one.

Project M on the Wii U will only support Wiimote, Wiimote and Nunchuk, Wii Classic Controller, and Wii Classic Controller Pro. It will NOT support the Wii U Pro controller, the Wii U Gamepad or the 4 port Gamecube Adapter that plugs directly into the Wii U's USB port.

Now, what you CAN do to play with a Gamecube controller is buy a Gamecube Controller to Wii Classic Controller converter. There are only two that I know of. They are these two links:

These will make your Gamecube controller plug into the bottom of your Wiimote and make it act like a Wii Classic Controller with all the functionality of a Gamecube Controller.

u/MrStudkip · -1 pointsr/SSBPM

Usually not. It's in your best interest to get a new one of off amazon

u/SailorMercurySSB · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

I use one of these:

Basically they're the white japan-exclusive gamecube controllers manufactured during the wii's lifespan (hence their being white) but before smash 4's release.

The price for a new one has shot up a ton since the smash-branded GCCs came out (presumably because they're no longer manufactured?), but imo these feel way better than the sm4sh ones, both build quality and responsiveness-wise. Word on the street is (according to DJ Nintendo) they're also some of the best for shield dropping? At least in melee, where shield dropping also happens to be a lot tighter than in PM - not sure if this is a factor for you or not.

Regardless, if you're able to drop the cash on one I'd say it's definitely worth it and they're definitely top-notch.

The only downside is that they can in fact suffer from the "sticky trigger" syndrome, which is when pressing the triggers from a sharp downward angle/at the lower corner of the buttons will make them have a lot more resistance when sliding down, the "solution" to which is to just press them straight on instead (lol). That is, if you're hitting the triggers fairly normally, it likely won't even be a thing you'd notice - but it does exist.

u/OhBizzle · 1 pointr/SSBPM

Go with this one

You don't want the adapter to upscale, let your TV do that. Set your Wii to 480P, it will reduce lag but not eliminate it.

As i'm sure you've read your best bet is to either play on a CRT, or play on a low latency computer monitor with the adapter I linked. I have a BenQ RL2455HM + The Above Adapter and it only lags 2ms more than a CRT, to me (and i'd be willing to bet anyone) that is not noticeable.

Good luck

u/CCAllen · 1 pointr/SSBPM

gotcha, thank you for the help. For clarification, if a card simply states that it is a 2gb SD card, like this one, will I be ok?

u/FailingItUp · 1 pointr/SSBPM

I bought this one prior to the 2-port USB adapter and it worked when I loaned it to my friend who runs dolphin off his macbook.

I really can't see why it would not work, USB's are pretty universal. I'll bring in the dual port adapter for him to test with tomorrow and let you know.

u/Psycho_Ghost · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

Have I got a [website] ( for you to look at! ;)

But seriously, welcome to the community! :D I would recommend investing in an official Gamecube controller as they control amazingly and are much more durable than third-party controllers.

u/Vladz0r · 1 pointr/SSBPM

You'll be waiting like a month, though. I'd honestly cancel that order and order it from Amazon for the extra $1.

I love DealExtreme, but I usually buy like 5-10 things at a time late at night when I'm tired, and then get the surprise package of goodies a month later.

u/Baz135 · 6 pointsr/SSBPM

> For starting out, cheaper options include the dazzle or elgato.

Oh geez please don't recommend these two to people

Dazzle is just trash quality and has audio issues, and Elgato (I'm assuming you're talking about the Elgato HD?) has that audio delay issue which is just something that absolutely should not be present in a supposed "high-quality" and fairly expensive device.

The GV-USB2 should be the go to starting/budget capture device. It's cheap, it's decent quality, and most importantly, it just works without any glaring issues.

There's also a million copies of it which can be had for cheaper but many of them have issues, so it's not worth it.

> Bit rate I use is 2500

This is fine for streaming but if you're local recording I hope you record at a higher quality.

u/Rasii · 2 pointsr/SSBPM

I usually just play on my Wii U, but I bought an adapter for the wii classic pro controller, it's my favorite controller for all my games.

This is the adapter I bought

Most other people prefer the gamecube controller for smash though. See /u/baldbutt 's comment for that though c:

u/L_Caret_Two · 1 pointr/SSBPM

Melee runs with the adapter through Nintendont, which is a Gamecube loader. It doesn't load Wii games. The reason it works with Nintendont is because that program supports USB controllers.

That said, I run PM on my Wii U using my Brawl disc and an SD card. I use the PM launcher. I use this to connect a Gamecube controller. But yeah, a wired solution would be preferable.

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/fudgepop01 · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

Nope! They're official. The [Classic Controller Pro] is basically classic controller 2.0 and was once produced by Nintendo.

You may be thinking of something like [This].

However, if I could find a CCP that plugs directly into the Wii console like a GCC, I would buy It in a heartbeat. o3o

u/teqneeks · 1 pointr/SSBPM

Refer to this post

I am using this monitor and this adapter

I used to play on a CRT and I would recommend my new setup to anyone.

u/lazierbeam · 1 pointr/SSBPM

This is a suitable workaround to the non-analog issue

(unfortunately it's sold out on Amazon currently, but there may be good enough alternatives if you search around the related items)

Mayflash Nintendo GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii/Wii U by Mayflash

I've been using this for the past couple months, works great

u/MilkManEX · 1 pointr/SSBPM

Only way I know of to get one. They're awesome, too. Updated hardware and a 10 foot cord.


Don't buy any of the used controllers from that page. Only the MEDIAHOUSE Akira seller is guaranteed to offer the new white controllers.

u/-oOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOo- · 1 pointr/SSBPM

Seems like it's possible:

Also, the mayflash gamecube controller adapter works really well if you decide that you'd like to switch to a gamecube conch.

Gamecube controller with a 10' long cord(which is awesome!):

Just giving you the GC links if you feel like using one. People will hate on the classic controllers, but use whatever.

I actually prefer the CC for somethings.

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/spinjump · 2 pointsr/SSBPM

I've heard from some that the Hori versions of this solution are made better. Can't speak from experience though. (and they appear to be sold out atm, so theres that.)

u/TheChosenJuan01 · 1 pointr/SSBPM

How do you think something like this would be for someone on a tight budget? Not looking for anything too fancy.

u/mrkees · 2 pointsr/SSBPM

For Mac, I use the 3 in 1 Magic Joy Box. It sounds sketchy, and it says it has no support for Mac, but it works totally fine. The only downside is that it only has one port for Gamecube controllers. This adapter seems to actually only work on Windows, but it has 2 ports for controllers.

u/BadSoles · 2 pointsr/SSBPM

That's the one that I'm refering to, yes. This other one has compatibility issues with more recent OSes.

Also, tons of folks have vouched for the one you linked working well/reliably for longer than I've had it.

u/Kie_Rigby · 1 pointr/SSBPM

This is the one I bought for Amazon and it works fine.

u/lorderk · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

There is a WiiU in the breakroom at my work, we use 4 of These to play Brawl, and Brawl Minus

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/markymawk · 2 pointsr/SSBPM

wii games do work with GC controllers, you just need a wii that has Gamecube pluggy holes. USB adapters won't work outside of Nintendont.

you can either get a new Wii, or get an adapter to plug into your Wii remote. This probably won't be allowed at tourneys but if you're playing on your own it's a cheaper option

u/nfreakoss · 2 pointsr/SSBPM

There's a white one too!

My brother and I got one of each, swapped the back plates, snipped the rumble, and replaced the triggers with old ones that aren't shit.

u/josephgee · 2 pointsr/SSBPM

Look at the Avermedia C039. You also need 3 RCA Y-splitters and 2 Composite extension cables (you can get longer ones if you want).

u/L_Pag · 1 pointr/SSBPM

can't really answer one and two, but there is an adapter

u/ShaquilleOHeal · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

From what I understand, this adapter should work on mac

u/jjaldridge2009 · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

You need to output the Wii in 480p (Progressive Scan) mode to get recordings in 60fps. This isn't possible with a Composite Cable. Your options for this are:

A. Component Cable For Wii

B. Sewell HDMI Converter for Wii

The HDMI converter is essentially lagless (less than 1 frame) and allows you to output in 480p. I know many players who use this, and even bring their low-lag monitors + this adapter to tournaments.

u/ComparisonsToHitler · 1 pointr/SSBPM

I have the Mario and Luigi versions of the HORI battle pad controller, and they feel surprisingly similar to a gamecube controller, if a little light.

u/JCOnyx · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

This isn't actually true. The component cable that it comes with is compatible with composite cables. I can record SNES gameplay with just the component cable by placing the yellow end in the red video slot.

It also upscales at a faster rate then my television does, meaning I get less lag playing through my Elgato then if my SNES was just connected to my HD television. A major plus, if you don't happen to have a CRT tv.

EDIT: Here is the amazon page for what you are looking for Draven_You_Crazy

u/ObsoletePixel · 7 pointsr/SSBPM

Not true, that's the PDP pad. Hori made this one

u/hichewsu · 1 pointr/SSBPM

The mayflash adapter that works with the Wii U. I know it isn't exactly an easy question to answer, but I thought maybe someone here also encountered a problem like this and was able to fix it.

u/Hambone321 · 2 pointsr/SSBPM

You always use this one

While not ideal I've been using it with little issue for about a year now.

u/ipwnall123 · 1 pointr/SSBPM

So here's a few things I noticed:

  1. Try downloading another WAD manager. I'm not sure why your WAD manager isn't showing up in applications via the homebrew channel. I suggest this one.

  2. Your WAD folder shouldn't be in the same folder as your applications, it should be in the root of your SD card. I don't think this is a super big deal because I think you can still navigate to it with most WAD managers.

  3. I would recommend getting a [2gb SD card.] ( Basically there is a distinction between SD cards and SDHC cards. Yours is an SDHC (well, any SD card larger than 2gb is SDHC). Most of the homebrew channels and applications have pretty shoddy compatibility with these cards. (I would probably reserve this suggestion until you've tried everything else though, no sense spending another 10 bucks if you don't have to)

  4. This one might seem obvious, but do you have the PAL version of Super Smash Bros Brawl? Because Project M is incompatible with it. You'll need the NTSC version.

  5. When you turn off Ocarina mode, does Brawl start normally, or are there still really long loading times? If there are long loading times even without project M running it very well might be an issue with either your hard drive or your .ISO of brawl.

    Earlier when I said I had the same problem as you I was actually slightly wrong. We have somewhat similar problems though, i.e. when you select a character it freezes and makes that tone (I know that freezing sound well, it still haunts me in my dreams). What IS different though is you seem to be only loading partially into Project M... None of the screens and menu interfaces are the same... In fact the only indication I can see that it's even modified is the character screen which is definitely bizarre.
u/Greidam · 5 pointsr/SSBPM

This is what I use for a portable setup I made. We use it for tournaments around here and no one can feel any lag. A couple say it even feels faster but I think that's the sharper visuals from my monitor

u/Captobvious789 · 2 pointsr/SSBPM

I tried that exact setup with the same equipment. I only tested it with Melee but the results were not good. Older 3D games do not upscale well. I honestly regret not going with the elgato HD for PM streaming, it can't do 1080p60fps but it can do composite/svideo/component connections. Save your money or buy a gv-usb2 for svideo capturing.

u/KazuKano · 1 pointr/SSBPM

Okay thats Bad :/. Try to buy this one it should work to 90% with this SDHC Card
