Gamecube has a handle, right?
I don't believe the GameCube controller through the Wii U gamecube adaptor fully works in BBLoader.
You'll need to plug it into the ports built into the Wii.

If you have a family Wii, (no GCc ports,) to be able to use a GCc to navigate before making the GBoy, you'll need to either wire the controller directly to the pins on the motherboard, or salvage some GCc ports from somewhere else.

But, as long as the WiiMote is working, the software is fully working, and you can start the trim. The GC controller emulator (the GC+2.0) will get wired to a place that is present on every type of Wii, so your GC+ will be able to work no matter what.

Alright, thanks man. Yeah it's a family wii, black case. I'll do the VGA change and get to work!
Edit: Does VGA enable not kill composite video out? I did the VGA enable and I still have video, even after a reboot.

Correct, VGA replaces component video, not composite

I'm trying to install BBLoader since I just got my G-Boy in the mail and no matter what I do, BBLoader won't show up on the homebrew channel. I even tried FAT32 formatting it. Help?

BBLoader version: v1.1

Description of issue:
Can't seem to install BBLoader onto my already homebrewed wii

How to recreate issue:
Install homebrew channel on wii and try installing BBloader from the homebrew channel

USB Drive: (Brand, Size)
Digipower USB Reader, Sandisk Ultra Plus microsdhc into a reader (it does work with other homebrew apps)

Video output method: (VGA, Component, Composite)
Composite, stock cables that came with my original wii

State of Wii: (Trimmed/Untrimmed)
Untrimmed

If it doesn't show up it's either because you copied it in the wrong folder or because you still have the SD card inserted in the front of your Wii and the homebrew channel is just listing the homebrews on your SD card

Sounds like a compatibility issue with your usb drive

Description of issue: Wii games are working fine, but I can't get Gamecube games to appear on the GC Games menu (eg. for Double Dash,I have the files structured as USB/games/Mario Kart Double Dash!!/Mario Kart Double Dash!! (USA).iso). I tried the iso in Dolphin as well to see if the file couldn't be read or was corrupted and it runs fine.

BBLoader version: v1.1

Description of issue: Cant get past the loading screen.

When i boot in it stays in the loading screen for a second and then kicks me back to the homebrew menu. If i select bbloader from there it will go on the loading screen for a second and then back to the homebrew menu. I attempted to boot into the wii menu through safe mode to see what the homebrew channel looked like and it was upside down. When i went through to bbloader i ended up back in the same loading screen loop.

This all started happening after i tried to put some games onto the sd. Prior to this it went into bbloader with no problem. I since removed the games and the problem persists.

USB Drive: kingston usb & sandisk ultra 128 GB

Video output method: (VGA, Component, Composite) Original wii cables

State of Wii: untrimmed

That homebrew menu is part of BBLoader, it's not the homebrew channel. Use the C-Stick on your gamecube controller to switch menu to GC/Wii games

BBLoader version: v1.1

Description of issue: Games and emulators crashing

So I have a couple of wii games which crash on boot up, including Bully, Mortal Kombat Armageddon and Wii Sports + Resort. Funnily enough Bully only crashes when I turn on Gc2wiimote but if I dont enable it, it loads fine I cant play whereas MK loads up for a bit then crashes and Wii sports + resort crashes after picking which game you want. Also I can't seem to get both not64 and Wiisxr to work. They both show up in the HB menu but seem to crash on start up. I managed to get vgba to work though

Dont know exact internals but I got my gboy commissioned by Gman
