    I've been working hard on a new controller emulator and it's finally ready for release! Classic+ is a replacement for Classic Controller and Nunchuk controllers in the same vein as GC+. It comes with a Wii homebrew app called Classic+ Configurator that handles calibration, updating, and other settings.

    GitHub Link

    All of the code and designs needed to build one are available on GitHub. I will continue updating the GitHub if any changes need to be made and will post updates here. Feel free to discuss or ask questions about the device in this thread.

    So this connects to a Wiimote? How are the motion controls done for the Nunchuk stuff?

    Yes, it's wired to a Wii Remote expansion port. The on-board accelerometer mimics the exact same output as a Nunchuk.

    Neat! Looks like a pretty solid design.

    Looking very nice!
    I want to use one in my next wiip. Can I buy one from you directly or do I need to build one myself?

    Thanks. I won't be selling any, at least not right now. They may become available on the BB store for a little while.

    I was taking a quick look at your code. Instead of doing what you did here, set the ADC result to be left justified and just take ADRESH as a result.

    Yes, deadzone and sensitivity are adjustable. Calibration is available too so you can use 3DS joysticks.

    Classic+ now supports SNES Classic. NES Classic should work too but I don't have one to test.

    So, would the SNES classic be configured to work with the classic controller mode? I am guessing it would not be through the nunchuk mode.

    Congrats, you got common Sense :p

    They (I believe) use the same protocol as the Classic controller, because you can use snes classic controllers on the wii u, so yes, you would use the Classic controller mode.

    Yep. The original Nunchuk doesn't work with SNES Classic, so it needs to be in Classic Controller mode.

    It's not the same protocol used on Wii/Wii U but it's not very different either. The original Classic Controllers as well as the SNES Classic controllers have the ability to work in either mode.
