Description

Currently every user in a Netplay session gets a GC port but not a Wiimote port even if it's a Wii game.

Either add both GC and Wiimotes or detect Wii and set the ports for Wiimotes like for GC controllers.

As is, I'm not really thrilled about this as Wii Remote netplay is much less common than GameCube Controller netplay. It would be extra steps for a lot of our users to disable them in Wii games that support GameCube controllers and I'm not sure what would happen if you left them configured in GameCube games. Probably nothing, but, it is worth testing.

There is a PR up, so I will mark this as fix pending, but I do not know if that PR will get merged.

I saw the PR, for reference, it's https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/pull/8987

As Tibladar said checking for Wii/Gamecube and setting the controllers accordingly would be the best way to assure no issues appear.
