XBOX 360 is your best bet.I

XBOX 360 is your best bet.I am currently adding support for RetroLink USB controllers too, I received the first one yesterday (Genesis one) and waiting for NES / SNES ones.

Retrolink are pretty cool replicas or original Genesis 6-buttons controllers, NES and SNES.

I will add support, push a new version and provide amazon links for you to buy these. It's a great experience with these since it's 1:1 mapping.

Hi guys, I'm having a bit of

Hi guys, I'm having a bit of a problem, I have a generic PC USB controller that I've configured using Joy2Key, & 1 or 2 of the buttons I press do the action of 2 buttons, even though I've configured each button for 1 keyboard button only. When I use my controller on something else (EDIT : competitor URL removed), it works fine, so it must be either the Joy2Key thing or this site. Could anyone help?

No it's not a retrolink

No it's not a retrolink controller, it has no title on it, it's just a generic PC USB controller that's virtually identical to the PS3 controller design. it's see-through with blue lights on the inside & a red light where the 'analog' button is, with a blue wire. It does happen on all games & systems I've tried.

Well it's hard to say I would blame either Joy2Key or Flash.

Can you narrow down the issue ?

Well the D-pad/arrow keys Up,

Well the D-pad/arrow keys Up, Left, Down & Right & the buttons I’ve configured for the  S, D, V & B keys seem to work fine, but when I press the button on my pad I’ve configured to the X key, it presses X & Enter (start) at the same time, when I press the button configured to C, it presses C & Space at the same time, when I press Start (configured as Enter of course), it presses Enter & right at the same time, and when I press the button I’ve configured as Space (select), it presses Space and Left at the same time. This happens on a Game Boy Advance game, an NES game & a Neo Geo game I’ve tried.

Hey guys. New here and this

Hey guys. New here and this website is one of the greatest things on the internet, haha. Just wondering. I've been reading and according to the above posts, I can use a corded xbox 360 controller on here correct? I've been trying and I can't seem to figure it out. Could someone please give me a hand or a walkthrough? How do I configure my controller to work with these games? Using an Acer Chromebook. Thanks!

Correction, mine is an ACER Chromebook, but still a C720 model. Still cant get my xbox controller to work. The xbox logo just flashes and doesn't connect when plugged into the usb port. No movement, nothing.

I will have a look at this

I will have a look at this starting tomorrow (gamepad, upside / down, custom controls) as I'm leaving on vacation. I will take a controller with me and debug that.I will put an update live when ready / fixed if possible, because I will have very limited Internet connection (3G connection).

Hey I've been using this site

Hey I've been using this site a bunch recently and have been having the same problems using xpadder.  It's like two or more keys are mapped to one button.

Refreshing the game a few times works for me believe it or not.  It must be something with flash.

Game controllers and the inverted dpad

Yes, that is the only problem I've been having with an otherwise excellent site that has already given me a good deal of pleasant nostalgia. :) I've tried three or four emulators and have the same problem with each; look forward to the next build!

Then again...

Seems to be back to the same problem as it was before on another day. I am at a bit of a loss. Everything seemed to work fine yesterday under FireFox, but now it is not working again. No matter what controls I switch, the D-Pad Y axis is inverted. :(

seems like an issue with the software. Cant see the web browser affecting how the controller is being recognized. It has to be an issue between the controller and the computer. Did you try using the controller on something else other than this website to check everything is working fine?
