Introduction: How to Use a USB Controller With Project64

Hey people!

It's been a while since I last posted an instructable. A few years minimum? Anyway, I decided to look back at my account and saw 57.6 THOUSAND views on my tutorial for Project64!

I also got a comment on this post asking about how to use a controller so I thought why not? Here's a tutorial on using a USB controller with Project64.

By the way - if you want to learn how to use Project64, check out my previous tutorial: http://bit.ly/2hLcMD3

Step 1: Plugging in Your Controller

If you have a wireless Xbox 360 controller, you need to get a receiver. Here is an Amazon link for people in the UK: http://amzn.to/2ifnQcO If you have one, plug it into a USB port in your computer.

If you have a wired 360/One/Other controller, just plug it into a USB port in your computer.

If you have a wireless Xbox One controller, you will see a micro USB port at the top centre of the controller. Get a cable like this (another Amazon UK link: http://amzn.to/2ijAtiG) but chances are you will have one lying around somewhere (at my house we have like 20). Connect the smaller port into the controller and the normal USB port in your computer. Note that some Xbox One controllers come with a micro USB lead.

Step 2: Setting It Up.

Okay, now that you have your controller plugged in, it's time to set it up with Project64. At the top of the Project64 game selection window, go to Options > Configure Controller Plugin. Give it a minute to load, and a box should show up. Click on the buttons in the window and press the same buttons on your controller. Check out the video to see what I mean. Then click OK.

Step 3: Play Your Game!

There you go! You can now play your Project64 games with your USB controller! It worked great for me!Comment saying if it worked for you and if there is anything you would like me to make into a new Instructable!

    Pressed every single button on my controller and nothing worked.

    Are you sure it is an Xbox 360/One/PC controller?

    I used 2 controllers. one 360 and one One s controller wired and bluetooth. it just wouldnt work

    I'm sad to say, but all I'm seeing is "NO CONTROLLER"

    Nothing seems to be working, it still wont show my controller. I can't even get it to recognize the controller.
