Works great on my Windows computer. At first it didn't work when running one of my gamecube games (too lazy to dig up my gamecube and hook it up to the TV), but I managed to dig up some instructions for working with dolphin emulator-- thanks to skid on the forums.

"1. Change the Device in the top left hand corner to Keyboard.
2. For each of the buttons and controls, right click on the gray button
3. In the pop up, change Device to the USB gamepad
4. Click Detect
5. Press the gamepad button
6. Press Select
7. Make sure that the control appears in the lower text box. Press Set.
8. Press OK
9. Repeat from step 2 for each button and control
10. Type in a profile name in the top right hand corner
11. Press Save
12. Enable Background input
13. Press OK
14. Start the game "

I have just purchased one of these controllers to use with Dolphin.
My experience:

- plug 'n' play works decently, but it's worth installing the drivers that come on the mini-disc, as it adds rumble functionality (I'm using Win 7)
- the L,R-analog functions *do not* work
- the Z-button feels a little weird, mine was stuck when it arrived, but works fine now
- the biggest issue is that there's no official website for this controller, you can't find the drivers/support online. I hope I don't lose the mini-disc

overall: not perfect, but seems manageable. Vast improvement over playing with the keyboard. Super Mario Sunshine is a bit uncomfortable because it relies on the L,R-analog buttons.

I recently bought this controller last week specifically to play Gamecube Emulator games on Dolphin.
The controller itself reminds me of the original in every way. The buttons are just fine and feel good enough without being too loose or cheap.
The only negative thing I have is that it doesn't come in my favorite GC controller color Orange. The Indigo color is my 2nd favorite because that was the color of my GC console when I owned one back in the day.

Not a big deal but FYI to the MFG, if you build it (Orange), I will immediately purchase a 2nd. J/S

The top review for this controller posted the list of steps in order to configure to Dolphin. It helps some but it took me an hour to actually figure out how to map each button. Here is the list that I configured to make the controller work perfectly.

1. Top Left Corner: Change the output to USB GENERIC CONTROLLER. Hit Refresh to make it pop up if it is blank.
2. Under each column listed, right click the button and choose the correct option.

Button Configuration: Keyboard #Keys = Gamecube Buttons
Key 0 = Y
Key 1 = X
Key 2 = A
Key 3 = B
Key 4 = L
Key 5 = R
Key 6 = Z
Key 9 = START

Main Analog Stick (Grey)
UP = Axis Y-
DOWN = Axis Y+
LEFT = Axis X-
RIGHT = Axis X+

C-STICK (Yellow)
UP = Axis Zr-
DOWN = Axis Zr+
LEFT = Axis Z-
RIGHT = Axis Z+

D-PAD (GREY) (N,S,E,W is the Compass reference)
UP = Hat 0 N
DOWN = Hat 0 S
LEFT = Hat 0 W
RIGHT = *You guessed it* Hat 0 E

You should check each button on the controller as they will highlight in RED if they are correct on the screen. Once everything is mapped correctly you'll need to save the configuration on the top RIGHT corner. Name the configuration whatever you want and now you have it saved.

So far the games that I have played with the controller that work perfectly on Dolphin are (Hulk Ultimate Destruction, SSBM, Super Mario Sunshine, Batman Vengeance, Luigi's Mansion, Judge Dredd vs. Death, Metroid Prime)
Best website to go to for ISO downloads is Emuparadise.

It works just like a normal gamecube controller. Easy to set up and play.
The buttons are a little stiff like other people have said but that might go away with wear.
The only problem I have with this controller is that the R and L buttons only have analog so if you press them down lightly or really hard it makes no difference. It's kind of annoying not having that feature in games that use it.

S***ty item. I bought it in October, and I've used it for a grand total of 1.5 games when the left up/down joystick stopped working. Might just buy an xbox 360 controller - most games are designed for it, not a gamecube controller. Buttons are also a bit stiff, but I can't tell if they're just stiff or if I didn't get around to loosening them up since the joystick broke so quickly.

Perfect! Works great especially for use with emulators. Plug and play couldn't be easier to set up. Feels almost original Nintendo factory quality, I was honestly blown away by how good this thing feels. Not your typical third party knock off controller.

There are heaps of things wrong with this controller. Every button the controller is stiff, the usb cord is at the most 4ft long, L and R have no analogue (no varying degrees in pressure sensing), the plastic overall feels like its from the dollar store, c-stick is buggy and inconsistent, and finally (the cherry on top that brought me to writing this review)... the hardware is utter trash that WILL break eventually no matter how gentle you handle it.

With that said, I was sapped into buying this twice. First time I bought it, it broke within the first couple months. But I figured the reason for that was because I was letting friends use it whenever we'd play. So oh well, not much to be done there other than buy another and keep the controller exclusive to myself. So its on sale and I decide to buy it again. This time I make sure to use it very sparingly, but still it just ends up broken.
Now when I say broken I don't mean the controller snapped in half or the buttons break. The hardware inside the controller just dies. It becomes "unrecognizable" whenever I plug it into my computer. Both times that's how the controllers broke. It was gradual as well. I would sometimes get it become recognizable again by fiddling around with the orientation of the cord but eventually that doesn't do the job anymore.

So all in all, if you want a GURANTEED TO BE TEMPORARY controller then by all means, buy this. Otherwise look into buying an adapter.

There is a 4 port one that doubles as a PC and WiiU GC adapter. While I don't currently own it, I have tried a friend's. It was only for a few hours so I can't vouch for how durable it is in the long run. But thats what I'm going to buy next.

the left and right directions on the c stick did not work. I was given the run around trying to exchange it, i had to order and cancel and reorder multiple times through 2 different agents for some reason until they managed to credit me.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. I was very excited to use this on Dolphin, to play super mario sunshine. But the C stick does not pick up movement left and right. This product is very poorly made and should be avoided.

This is an awful product. When one first plugs it in and starts using it, everything is fine. However, after only very limited use these controllers will begin to show signs of defection. I purchased one about a month ago which lasted 4 days and about 12 hours of game play before completely dying never to come back. Ignorance and unwillingness to believe that such a faulty product could ever be sold I mistakenly bought a second controller. This one, unlike the first, malfunctioned in a completely different way. After about 2 days and about 8 hours of game play I started to hear the noise from my PC that a device had been unplugged from the USB slot. I was sitting right next to my computer though and the controller still worked fine so I thought it was an anomaly. It wasn't. I heard the same sound about a minute or two later and before long it was making the sound every few seconds, and just happened continuously until it was unplugged. The longer I kept it unplugged the longer it would work when plugged back in, but after a half hour every time it would begin to stop working again, it would slowly stop functioning until it became completely unresponsive.
Obviously this is simply a poorly made product by a company which does not bother to have any quality control whatsoever. I bought two controllers from them in less than two weeks and both only functioned for a few days and before becoming unusable in completely different ways.
