Controller solution for emulators?

Post by reznorfan0 »

Has anybody tried this on any of their android devices? this would be absolutely perfect as opposed to having to carry around a wii remote, classic controller, and batteries for both all the time...if it works.

You can use a Wiimote, but you can't use USB controllers, or PS3 controllers at the moment.

I use a mini bluetooth keyboard for the emus; it's handheld and as the emus are configurable key-wise, it's pretty comfortable for gameboid, gensoid, snesoid, and psx4droid as I play them.

The wii remotes work really well, especially with the classic controller. With 2 players, the person who isn't playing may have to hit a button every now amd then, or the connection will time out.

Agreed. I've been switching between using Wiimote+Classic controller and a BT Mini-keyboard. FF6! :D

I've been lookin for a decent controller for my 101 and ended up here. I was thinkin about gettin one of the classic controllers to hook up to my Wiimote but then I found the classic controller pro and was wondering if anyone knows if that one would work like the regular one. Oh and has anyone gotten a PS3 controller working on it yet?
