Posted by Chris Matyszczyk on March 31, 2019 03:06:56The Wii U gamepad’s input was a bit of a disappointment, and that’s probably the main reason the Wii U version of Super Smash Brothers Brawl has a bit more than a dozen different character modes.
Here’s how to build one yourself.
Open up the Settings menu and click the Gamepad option.
Under Character, scroll down to Advanced.
Under Controls, click the Add button.
Under Gamepad, click and hold the GamePad button and press it to add a new button.
Under Advanced, click New button and then select the Character Select Button.
Under Controller Settings, under Input, click Advanced.
Under Input Settings, add a button and name it “Playback Mode”.
Right-click the new button and select Properties.
Click OK. 10.
Now under Gamepad Settings, click Add New Gamepad Button.
Now on the next screen, you’ll see an option for “Enable Wii U Gamepad Support” and select it. 13.
You can also change the default input settings if you like, but in this case it should be enabled if you don’t have one.
If you have a controller, you should add the new controller to your controller settings.
The Gamepad button should be the only one to be selected in the Gameplay tab.
Edit: You can now enable and disable the option for the Wii Remote to be used in this mode, but you’ll need to disable it in the controller settings as well.
In the Options menu, under Controls, go to Input Settings and select “Wii Remote”.
Now in the Settings, scroll to the bottom and select Advanced.
Under “Use the Wii remote”, add the Wii Remotes button to the list.
In that same section, add the “Use Nintendo Gamepad” button.
Click the Save button and close the Settings window.
You should now have a Wii Remote that works as a controller for Super Smash Battles, as well as some of the game’s more advanced features.
The Super Smash Battlegrounds beta test for Super Battlefields, meanwhile, also adds two more character modes and a few other tweaks.
You’ll want to head over to the Wii Sports Club Beta for a full version of the beta.
