    I just got a new GCN controller to play homebrews with the Wiikey, however, it seems like the controller is not-functional--thing is, the controller is new. What could be the problem? Do I have to install 1.2 for the Wiikey maybe?

    Thanks in advance.

    I know this sounds noobish, but make sure you are plugging it into the first port, not the fourth. My mistake was thinking that the first port was the one all the way towards the back of the wii, when in fact, it is the port near the front of the console.

    I thought my controllers were not working either (I have a wii-key), but then my dumb ass discovered that I was plugging it into the wrong port this whole time. Aftermarket and Wavebirds work just fine. Hope this helps!

    Odd. Most of the people I talked to have the opposite problem. My wavebird works fine (ch. 16 with fresh batteries).

    do your guys' wavebirds work on every part of the 1.2 disk? or just certain parts? and is there some kind of trick because I want mine to work
