Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I talk about buying a USB adapter for two SNES gamepad controls (Super Nintendo) ou SFC (Super Famicom) (SNES SFC Dual Controller Gamepad to USB Adapter)), whose purchase details in DealExtreme I have already described in a previous article. Therefore, this article only speak product.
Who plays classic video games through emulators on the PC knows that the experience is not the same with a keyboard. A very good joystick certainly enhances the experience, but for the most nostalgic still lacked the experience to be playing with the original control console being emulated. But, Hair least in the case of the Super Nintendo, this is no longer a problem. The USB adapter for two SNES gamepad controls (Super Nintendo) ou SFC (Super Famicom) serves precisely so you can connect one or two controls Super Nintendo (ou Super Famicom) into a USB port on your PC.
The USB adapter for two SNES gamepad controls (Super Nintendo) ou SFC (Super Famicom) é plug and play. Simply plug it into a USB port and Windows recognizes and installs the appropriate driver automatically. From Dai, just map the keys in your favorite Super Nintendo emulator (recommend ZSNES or Snes9x) and play your Super Mario World, Zelda: A Link to the Past and other classics with gamepad control original Super Nintendo. Of course you can also use it with other games, other console emulators, etc. as would any other joystick.
The manufacturer USB adapter for two SNES gamepad controls (Super Nintendo) ou SFC (Super Famicom) is the famous MayFlash, whose specialty is designing and manufacturing video game accessories. The model presented here is the PC044. A MayFlash has several other models of adapters for PC, including those that allow you to connect joysticks Playstation, Playstation 2, XBox, GameCube, PC joysticks and older, that utilizam a Game Port, extinct in motherboards and sound cards today, besides unsupported by current versions of Windows.
With the USB adapter -> Game Port, controls old PC may return to action, a pity that Gravis Gamepad Pro is my with some defect, but to seek such an adapter to play with him again. The Gravis Gamepad Pro was my first purchase on websites abroad, site in late Cyberian Outpost, U.S., still in the early 90. It was sent by DHL and… taxed! But still worth it, because there was no similar joystick in Brazil, that has 10 buttons (it was similar to the control of the original Playstation, before Dualshock), it only supports the Game Port 4 eixos e 4 buttons, then the joysticks of that time had typically 2 buttons only (can connect dois them) or 4 buttons (can connect only one). The Gravis Gamepad Pro used some advanced techniques to allow for signaling 4 controles gamepad com 10 buttons each. Of course for that he relied on a specific driver in Windows or games that support it in DOS, but most of the games had such support, including Fifa, o Jazz Jackrabbit, etc. In other games, Gravis Gamepad Pro had a key 3 positions that allowed do it behave like a gamepad 4 or 2 Common buttons.
A pity that the MayFlash has not yet adapters with the famous DB9 plug to connect joysticks Mega Drive, Master System e Atari 2600, using all three similar and compatible pinouts. A curiosity: for those unaware, You can use any of these 3 in any of these gamepads 3 systems. The only button is the button Atari 1 Master System and Mega Drive B button; and the button 2 Master System is the C button Mega Drive. Paper Boy I played the Master System with the Atari joystick 2600, it was much easier.

According to the packaging, the USB adapter for two SNES gamepad controls (Super Nintendo) ou SFC (Super Famicom) is compatible with Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP and Vista. I add Windows 7 this list, because it worked perfectly here, including the version 64 bits. Do not know if any accessory is supported, for the Super Nintendo uses a serial bus for control, Unlike Atari joysticks and Master System, where each joystick position and each button is mapped to a pin. I think it will only work joysticks that use the same signaling, in other words, nothing of the Mario Paint mouse, much less Super Scope (the bazooka Super Nintendo), since in addition to signaling, acting ela em CRT TVs. On the other hand, the functionality of a Super Multitap, that connects 4 controls on the Super Nintendo and is used in games like Fifa and Super Bomberman, can be simply emulated by using two USB adapters for two of SNES gamepad controls (Super Nintendo) ou SFC (Super Famicom).
