I have been having serious input issues with the Dolphin core and Wii games. These tend to fall into two categories:
On some games, for example Super Mario Galaxy, it wants me to plug in the nunchuck to the WiiMote. Since I am not using a WiiMote or Nunchuck, this is physically impossible. Thankfully this is an emulator and we can tell it whatever we want! I tried switching the settings to say I have the WiiMote + Nunchuck, but that doesn’t change anything.
Various popups on the title screens will say “press any button to continue” or “press B to continue”, etc… Even though I verify the mapping of the input is correct in the settings, the Dolphin emulator does not accept the button presses.
Input works just fine when its a game that supports the Gamecube controller. I am using a DS4 controller (which is auto configured perfectly by Lakka)
Has anyone had any better luck with this? Is there a trick to it? Must I actually use a Wii controller?
