I bought a gamecube controller to play with Mario Kart Wii. I read online (from 2008 articles) that the classic/gamecube controller is gimped and only the wiimote properly works. What gives? Am I doing it wrong, or is Mario Kart Wii truly gimped?
A question about Mario Kart Wii and Gamecube Controller.
I have had Mario Kart Wii since release and use the Wavebird Gamecube controller and have never had a problem. I have tried the Classic Controller as well and yet again I have never had a problem. I have never heard of any of the classic/gamecube controllers being gimped.
" Thanks for all the help guys! One last question. How do you get the controller to work in single player? Whenever I try, it does nothing and only works when the wiimote is plugged in. "I'm not sure on that one. Check the manual, but I think you have to hit start on the gamecube controller on the title screen.
" Up on the d pad is ... the wheelie for motorcycles. "Man I realized Nintendo was a little backwards when B came before A on the controller... but that's just amazing. As somebody who always plays with the Y-axis inverted on analog sticks, that just makes my brain want to bleed.
