I play most roms with a SNES controller on my HTPC hooked up to a CRT TV (it's specifically for emulating)

How does /vr/ emulate?

OP here, I have the Super Smartjoy and it works, if you want to try that.

Honestly I just go on ebay and look up an adapter for whatever controller I have and pick whatever I see, I haven't had a problem with any of them. The ones I have are from defunct companies and are plug and play

Holy fuck it's such an awesome feeling

I have my Wii Classic Controller hooked up to the PC with an adapter.

It's almost the same as the SNES controller but has the added bonus of having analog sticks for N64 emulation.

>> No.457603

Tell me what parts I exactly need for that please.

Gonna set it up like that, feel so stupid for never knowing about this.

What adapter do you have?

I've been thinking of doing this since I still have a classic controller left after I sold my Wii

PS2 dpads are good but you can't fucking beat a basic dpad that isn't separated like that

>> No.457612

I use my keyboard to play emulated games. I want to get an adapter that lets me use a PlayStation 2 controller on a computer sometime. I usually emulate Super Nintendo games and the PlayStation 2 controller is similar to the Super Nintendo controller.

>> No.457613


It's from a company called Mayflash.

Apparently it's incompatible with 64bit Windows 7, but it works anyway when I plug it into my PC's front USB, so keep that in mind if you want to get one.

>> No.457618

All you need is the adapter and the controller.

Plug it in, plug in the controller (doesn't have to be in a specific order or anything) and then open up whatever emulator you use and set up the controls.

Are you asking what adapter you need?

>> No.457627

There's a lot of the same brand on ebay


I don't have this brand but USB adapters are simple and I never had one that broke

What's the perfect controller for both 2D and 3D games?

The one thing that fucks me over is Gamecube, because they had analog triggers and the only controller I know that has them is the Gamecube.

The Classic Controller Pro. Get an adapter.

Also not all Gamecube games used the analog trigger. It's fucking assy though. If you really need it, map it so that it goes analog when you hold both these two buttons in this pic and the same for the other side. You'll get used to it eventually

Gamecube controller is pretty great.

Oh man, it does look great, but that asking price is insane. Did you buy one or modify it yourself?

I recently replace the analog sticks in mine so I should probably just get an adapter, never got into N64 emulation because the games just don't feel right without that crazy three-hand controller.

I use NES and SNES USB converters, It feeds my need to want to play with the original controllers.

The actual act of collecting the physical games has no interest to me. Emulators are wonderful.

I open my emulator of choice, pick the highest resolution filter it supports, load the rom. Hit play. If game has cheats, I turn them on.

No you don't though. What's the point of that post?

I've got the club nintendo SFC replica controller for emulation on the Wii, and a stack of iBuffalo SFC replicas for emulation on the PC and Android.

These days I do most of my gaming with RetroArch on the PS3 though, with DS3 controllers. Wonder if RA can use standard USB there as well, in which case I should switch over.

Actually it's missing the clickable analogs, so good luck playing Devil May Cry or Dark Souls with it.

I have approx. 700 GB of roms in my external hd, and i can use it anywhere else as long as i set the drive letter to (G:) so the directories stay the same.
As for controllers, i mostly use PS2 dualshocks, but i also have a logitech f710 for gc emulation (analog triggers) and a wiimote for nes and sega mastersystem.

OP how are you getting a viewable signal to your CRT? i have HDMI/DVI-I and i would be interested in doing the same.

not if it means getting an old ass video card with s-video out though

>> No.458243

Every single SNES controller I went to buy online cost way too much (if I wanted to get an adapter too), so I just ended up buying one of those USB knockoffs that look exactly like one.

Made by Tomee or something. It's actually not bad. It feels like the original controller I guess, a little more clicky but still works fine.

I have a Mayflash adapter for my N64 controller though, and I usually just play NES with the SNES one. I'd like to get an adapter for my PS2 controller, but all of the ones on ebay are chinese knockoffs and I don't trust them since they're only like $2.

WWE Brawl Pad. It's also what I use for fighting games on my Xbox because I only play casually and don't want to buy a stick.

>> No.458479

I don't usually emulate because I'm one of those fags that has no drive to play something unless it's on original hardware, but when I do actually play I just use DS3 for everything

Oh yeah,
I tried playing the original LoZ on gamecube once, it controls badly with the stick and the dpad feels unresponsive as fuck

Are the F710s as durable as the older versions?

I'm not keen on laptop prices but you've got a 3 year warranty at least, that is good. Alienware is a bit overpriced but you are at least getting good build quality, I don't think anyone would deny that. Do you use a cooling pad for long gaming hours?

>> No.458724

no, but they are still quite good, and of course have pressure sensitive triggers for muh racing

unfortunately the front two triggers are shitty click buttons instead of those nice rubber dome ones

Yeah that's why it's a little elevated,slanted, I got a really cheap cooling pad from shoprunner that's been working me wonders. I also connect it to the tv every now and then when I want to play a game using a controller like fallout 3 or hitman
