Unfortunately, I think you probably will need a "box"-type adapter. I believe the adapter you're trying to use is for certain laptops (?) that support RCA output through VGA.

That adapter is to output from your PC to a TV.
You will need something like this

I used to have this exact one and works flawless. Granted only in FS res, but still good.
Or, dolphin emulator and roms of the games you own.

Have you tried the Dolphin emulator? It will run regular, commercial GameCube discs, and at higher resolutions.

Yeah, it should work with any controller that Windows recognizes. It works great with my wired 360 controller. Just click the "GCPad" button in the main Dolphin window and set it up.
