Today I've managed to use adapters on my Gamecube to play the emulated arcade game from 1984 called Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back with a Playstation 3 wireless controller.  The presentation was made so this can be accomplished by anyone with a little time on their hands. 

 

This was done using cellphone steering accessory that I hacked to use as a Dual Shock 3-compatible flight yoke, and it makes playing the game very similar to the control method employed in the actual arcade game.  

 

The trick is to use a CronusMax Plus controller adapter with software modification for putting the Dual Shock 3 into Sixaxis motion controls mode. Once you've done that you'll be flying your ship on your Gamecube with the 1st ever flight yoke for the system.

And now I've got a new Dual Shock 4 for Gamecube presentation. In it I play the following games: Atari's Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back, Kirby Air Ride, FZero GX, Chaos Field, and Top Gun. Check it out here:
