USB PC gamepad for emulators? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Nothing beats the real thing. I wouldn't bother destroying a real SNES controller, just get a Smart Joy USB adapter if you can. Yes, I still own a real Super Nintendo biggrin.gif.

I would just use PS3 controller if you have one. Motion joy will make it work and it has support for blue tooth wireless.

I use an old Logitech WingMan for all my console emulators. Works pretty good and FCEU and Fusion (my all in one Sega emulator) work well with it. Windows 7 Pro 64 bit has the drivers for it to work quite nicely already so I just plug 'n play. Literally. Wish ALL plug 'n play devices were this nice, but it has gotten a lot better since the days plug 'n play was first introduced (what was that, the original Win98? I think...)

In the past I have used a usb adapter hook-up I bought from radio shack for $10. Nothing to install, straight plug-n-play. Pretty flawless setup really. I used mine with the logitech RF controllers they made for ps2. It was great to have wireless controllers in my old HTPC setup.

Not to change the subject, but someone mentioned the PS3 controller and bluetooth. I just bought a new Asus board with built in bluetooth. Do ps3 controllers work with computers? I haven't tried it yet, but I thought I would throw the question out there.

Yes, I use motion joy software and drivers for my PS3 controllers. It even has an x-box controller emulator built in and support for PS3 keypad. Blue tooth and USB.

I got this several years ago and -never looked back-




http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mayflash-Wireless-Controller-Adapter-Wii-Classic-Controller-PC-PS3-/280775463340?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item415f8591ac

https://www.dropbox.com/s/rokfas6opnxj6vg/Joy2Key_and_Stuff.zip

But for those who, for whatever reason, dislike the Classic Controller.
Mayflash is also planning to put these out soon...

You have a choice of using the Wii U Pro or Sony Dual Shock 3,
and each of these adapters can support up to four controllers.

No BT dongle, no MotioninJoy, Glovepie or Bluesoleil required.
Just straight DirectInput (and Xinput) conversion.
(Not that you couldn't get Xinput with x360ce.exe)

Best one is the PS2/PS3/PS4 controller for PC. Simple adapter to USB and thats it.

The xbox360 wired controller is the "best" since it has native support in windows. Plug and play. A huge bonus is many games that are on xbox too will already be set up to plug in the xbox controller and play.

If you don't like it, then ps2 with adapter or ps3 with motionjoy is probably next best option.
