Wii pro controller
« on: May 28, 2019, 03:00:49 PM »
Is there a tce that plays nicely with the aforementioned Wii u pro controller? Also I'm looking for a tce that can take button presses from a controller and map them to keystrokes.

I want to use tiny core as a dosbox live setup

Hi zacmario
The kernel mode driver is enabled:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ modprobe -l | grep -i wii
kernel/drivers/hid/hid-wiimote.ko.gz
tc@box:~$

I don't see any extensions for the Wii though. These links might provide some useful information to point you in the right direction:

I don't know specifically about Wii/WiiU controllers, but in general xf86-input-joystick does that at X level if you use Xorg, it can emulate both keyboard and mouse. Then there's apps like joy2key.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Ok, I'll investigate both. I haven't tried xorg yet, so I'll have to check that out.
