  3. Good USB N64 controller?
2 years ago#1
Are there any good, USB N64 controllers out there? I tried using my 360 controller, but due to the N64 controller having 6 face buttons, it can be awkward on some games.

Have you tried mapping the c buttons to the right analog?

Your best bet would probably be an adapter to use a real N64 controller.
Also depending on the game you can either map the c buttons to the right stick, digi pad or the four main buttons and map a and b to shoulder buttons.

I have, but if I accidentally move the stick to far in a direction, it activates that button. Like if I press it up, but accidentally angle it a bit to the left, it will occasionally activate C-Left instead of C-Up.

I have an USB 2.0 N64 controller; can't be bothered with adapters.

The PCB and micro controller are the only good thing about it. I had to replace the buttons and shell with a donor from an official N64 controller as the ones it came with felt cheap.

Actually, I have almost every console controller in USB: Saturn, N64, NES, SNES, 360, Genesis.

Set the deadzone of the right stick higher.

Playing N64 games with a PS3/360 controller just doesn't work well, even with the right analog as the C buttons. For one thing, they're supposed to be above A and B, not vice versa.

I'm interested in this topic, because even if you get an adapter for a real controller, they wear down and break so damn frequently.

Personally, I'd just dig a 360 style controller that decides to add 2 bloody buttons. Thats it. Such a simple thing. Why is there nothing like it? :/

Ended up ordering this controller from Amazon-

Has decent reviews, has a Turbo button, and is pretty cheap. Only thing that might be a problem is the small side handles, but I had a N64 controller with similarly short handles when I was younger, and had no problems/hand cramps with it.

Oh well, here's hoping it works decently.
