Cheap USB Game Controller for Open Emu

OpenEmu Cheap USB Game Controller

If you are after a cheap game controller to team with Open Emu, then you can’t go too far wrong with this little gem. For less than £7 (with free delivery) you get a PlayStation-esque controller which has all of the buttons you need for most emulators.

It may not be the prettiest device but it has a good playing action and very reminiscent of the original PlayStation 2 controller. Not being a massive gamer I’m sure there are much better controllers out there. But for occasional playing of some classic console games it really works for me.

Open Emu makes it possible to play classic games on your Mac from the following consoles:

  • Game Boy
  • Game Boy Advance
  • Game Gear
  • NEO GEO Pocket
  • Nintendo (NES)
  • Nintendo DS
  • Sega Master System
  • Sega Mega Drive
  • Sega Mega Drive 32X
  • Super Nintendo (SNES)
  • TurboGrafX (16)
  • Virtual Boy

The controller is class compliant, so you do not need to install drivers. Within Open Emu all you need do is choose Retrolink N64 and then edit game controls by pressing upon each button in turn. I’ve mostly been playing Super Mario World on the SNES and my controls now look like this:

    Hi, my retrolink controllers are unresponsive when I choose them in the input menu. Is there anything special you did to get them to work?
