Can i use usb controllers to play these games on here or do i need to use my keyboard to play them.
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.
I went on ebay and found a nintendo usb controller and a super nintendo usb would those work for the nintendo games i want to play on here please bare with me i'm new to your site.
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?
supermansback26 <== Not yet, but I am adding suppport for these controllers. Are they Retrolink controllers ?
Poppin Lutador <= No idea, does this happen on all games / systems ? If not, please tell me which systems have the issue.
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, 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.
I have a generic ps3 controller ( I bough it on a flea market) and of course an original one.. And it works perfectly!!! I've tried with my favourite games and it rules =)
star9killer can you share how you got it working ?
yea same here...i have a ps3 controller and i cant get it to work. please show how you did it...thanks!
oh by the way...im using a mac
nevermind i figured it out. i used JOYSTICK MAPPER to manual assign the buttons and it works perfect. plus you can customize it per console.
great ctrim78 if you can share a guide / instructions with the community it would be AMAZING
Hello lads! I have a saitek p880, but i can't figure out how to play with this.I even install joy2key but i have some problems.Do you think that i have to try with an other controller? Which one do you propose?Something cheap though! Thnx a lot!
admin....will do. ill make it as its own post.
I now have a Logitech F310 USB controller, but I'm still getting pretty much the same issues...is anyone working on the USB controls compatibility for this site?
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!
Try to unplug it / replug it after game is launched.
I have an asus chromebook, too... c720 model... so, loganisawolf, have you tried if it works?
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 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 just joined and had that same problem using xpadder, but only for some games.
Yes a fix will be published ASAP.
Hi, i just started using a usb xbox 360 controller. I works fine except for the fact the d-pad doesnt move the character and the joystick seems to be inverted and i cant fix it. Any tips on fixing?
This is a known issue on the current build, I am currently working on a fix for inverted D-PAD.
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.
Same here... Im using xbox 360 controller and it works great except that the D-pad doesnt move the character half the time and the joystick (Which seems to move the characters great) is inverted. Otherwise awesome.
I plugged in my 360 controller bot it doesn't work still. how do I sync it with game oldies?
Hi :) I have just registered and would like to use controller to play my favourite games. I have PS3 controller, and I wanted to know what I need to do to make it work and play.
I await response.
(I'm not English, and it is likely that you will find some error in the text.)
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!
RIncrast can you tell us which browser and which OS are you using ?
I fixed the up/down reverse issue yesterday, so.. I am a bit puzzled.
There's a stick post with instructions to do so if you're on Mac.If you're on windows, google for SixAxis tool ,then follow Mac instructions.
Sure. At the moment, I'm using Vista 64 bit with IE and an old sidewinder USB gamepad. :)
Switched to FireFox and it seems to work fine now. :)
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?
I did; it works fine with the mapping in something like notepad. /shrug
hmph wish i could help more...havent used a pc in a long time.
I have exactly the same problem :(
