USB Controllers
« on: January 12, 2010, 10:49:31 PM »
Do all USB controllers work on MUGEN? I was going to buy this one since my 360 one doesn't work well: http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=SIL-USB-PS2-DS-2PK&cat=JOY

or this one since the D-pad is smoother: http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=PCJOYPAD-BLU-N&cat=JOY

Also, can i get a list of Controllers that don't work on MUGEN. Thanks.

Ive tried just about everything.

What you want is a controller for PS3 or PC controller like PS3's.
Reasons:

1. Some controllers only come in Analog or set to play in Analog right off. Using Analog sticks suck. You wanna make sure it has a mode button to change between the two.

2. Your gonna need the Analog sticks if you decide you wanna play PC games like shooters. (L4D2 Perhaps)

3. You can use the 360 controller but you have to have a certain program that makes the menu button the mode button. There are so many out there its hard to tell. The PS3 controller may need this driver too.

Yeah the PS3 controllers require extra drivers/ software

In fact if you have windows all you have to do us plug in your Xbox controller and it works without installing anything extra

if you don't like that kind of controller though I recommend you try and find a cheap USB one on eBay

Logitech makes controllers that work on mugen. I use them. Make sure you get ones with analog sticks cause digital is almost impossible to use. Analog is kinda tricky to but once you get the hang of not jumping continuously it isn't bad.
For those who are curious, yes I am gone and I don't intend to be back soon. I never formally said goodbye to you all, because that always becomes a forum stink. However, to my friends here, I wish you the best. Perhaps I'll be back one day but for now this is goodbye.

For the price it couldn't hurt to try. As long as a controller is recognized by the computer it should work. The 360 controller works but the d-pad does not work for Mugen.

I use this one and it works awesome. W(- -)W

My uncle has an old PC controller that is a PS1 knockoff. Its from 2000. Its not usb though, it has a connecter like the ones monitors have, with the screws on the sides of the input.

He bought it in 2000 with NHL2K. He ran it on an old Gateway with Windows 98. The controller is all thick and groddy. I'll post a picture when i get it from him. It should work since it doesn't require any drivers and the d-pad is great, it's like a giant super nintendo d-pad on a ps1 knock off body.

The monitor connection you speak of is a COM port connection and not DVI, all computers have it. The Gravis I posted about that I have is like that but they supplied a usb adaptor. Either way you connect it, it will still work flawlessly and the Gravis I have came with a program to reconfig the buttons and the ability to save set ups and it also gave you on-line set up from different user and by the company for all games that were out at the time.
