Hello all,

Do I have to use the wii remote to navigate the main menu? I know this sounds like an obvious question, but I have a nintendo wii without sensor bar or wii remote. I do, however, have a plethora of gamecube games and a classic controller. Can I use the wired controller to select the gc game from the wii main menu, or will I be forced to buy a wii remote? I just wanna play gc games, and I'm short on cash.

Sadly, you need a wiimote to navigate any wii menu. However, you can hook a classic controller up to the wiimote and use the control stick to move the cursor.

You'll have to buy a Wii remote.

And do you want to play Gamecube games with the Classic Controller? You can only play Gamecube games with a Gamecube controller.

put two candles over your TV, some say that may work as a replacement of the sensor bar

You CAN navigate the Wii's menu with the cl4ssic controller. Your Gamecube controllers will not work, though.

If you have a Classic Controller then no.

but, you still need the wii remote to allow the cc to communicate with the wii.
