One of the most popular emulators available, the Dolphin software, gives Wii and GameCube owners the change to run their games using a computer. When using a laptop, this makes the otherwise bulky Wii and GameCube hardware portable. Dolphin allows you to map Wii and GameCube controller buttons to devices that are attached to the computer. This includes a computer game pad. This makes it feel much more natural when using the emulators, as a keyboard is not always the most user-friendly control device.
