So I've been doing my best to collect USB adapters (typically Mayflash) and original controllers. Often times original controllers require a LOT of maintenance to workout just right.I think that getting the "original" experience is what drives me the most for this. I mean, I've played through a lot of SNES classics with an XBOX 360 controller, but it never feels right. So I've been getting USB adapters and original controllers. But I wanted to know if the USB controller "knock offs" were any good. By knock off, I mean non-nintendo/sega branded controllers that look like the original SNES/Genesis/whatever controllers, but use USB to directly plug into your PC. I see them all over Amazon, and some are reasonably priced, but I know some cheaper electronics are as sturdy as cardboard (plastic can break from moderate use). But is it worth while to hunt down original parts and restore them? Or do these USB controllers work alright? My collection currently lacks NES, SNES, and Genesis. I already have adapters and original controllers for everything else from my childhood.
Hey guys! This is my first post here... but I've been using Launchbox for a while now, and absolutely love it! Anyway, I was just curious about something. Today, I received some USB N64 controllers and while they're fully functional, the analog sticks are somewhere between functional and terrible. Now, I see that it's possible to replace the analog sticks on official N64 controllers. I'm actually quite interested in getting the GameCube replacement. But I'd like to know if anyone here has had any experience replacing the stick on one of these unofficial N64-USB controllers (either from Retrobit, or anywhere else). Given that I just got mine today and haven't gotten around to opening it up, yet. I'll probably do that sometime tomorrow. I wanted to ask you guys first though... Do you think it's do-able or am I wasting my time? Are the guts inside the controllers pretty much the same? Any input would be appreciated! Thanks!
