Description

You can easily go from NSO N64 button layout to the traditional Switch Pro controller button layout with a quick press of the new “Swap” button. Please switch between Xinput and Dinput until the “PS3/PC Gamepad” configuration appears and calibrate for best results. Alternative Projects is dedicated group for Muv-Luv related translations, now working on the official English version of Muv-Luv. Whether you're a Classic Gray kind of person, you like the bold look of the Transparent Blue or you prefer the bleeding edge look of the Arctic White, be sure that you'll be gaming in style and comfort.

Takes a bit of adjustment for people who have muscle-memory from using the old trident controller, but once you get past that bit of re-learning, it's wonderful. On top of all that, it can also be used on a PC by plugging it into a USB port, which opens up the options for the controller even further still. Enter Retro Fighters’ Brawler 64 controller, which was Kickstarted a while back, to which I threw some money at just for this review. This is my goal, to have dedicated wireless controllers for systems with more esoteric controller designs.

I tested Super Mario 64 (overall control), Conker's Bad Fur Day (also control), Mischief Makers (D-pad), Glover (D-pad and control), Mario Kart 64, and F-Zero (both for stick sensitivity. The reason why standard N64 D-Pad at the time felt so good in hand was due to its larger radius in the corners.

To connect wirelessly via Xinput on PC or Android, hold “B” and the back “pairing button” until the top and bottom LED turn on. The back of the PCB has less to go with it, but the few rigid cables we have here willprobably snap next time I open the controller, and the wires going into the lead seemed already breaking apart from the surface. Never used them with the Pi (AFAIR the wired ones dont work anyway with Raspberrys) but i can highly recommend these pads for owners of real N64s. The Brawler64 Wireless Edition still has the same great shape and ergonomic design you know and love.Not that many games use the Transfer Pack, but not having it also means one of the main attractions of the N64 with Pokémon Stadium is very lacking.

The plastic used feels nice with its matte finish, but as usual with surface finishes like this, it’ll rub off on the long run and becomes shiny and slippery. Personally, I’ve replaced all of my PS4 and Wii U Pro controller analogue sticks with the Xbox One sticks because they have so much more grip. Despite its flaws with the L-button and stick, something which Retro Fighters are addressing themselves with replacement controllers or replacement pieces, depending what the backer has decided on.It took less than five minutes to make the adjustment of the much needed analog stick, but I could not imagine playing Super MARIO 64 with the old trident controller. Really glad I bought this because in the past I tried similar controllers, but they just didn’t hit the sweet spot.

The Retro Fighters Brawler64 USB gamepad showcases a two handle design and features responsive buttons, D-pad and a comfortable analog stick. But I was really disappointed to find out that the version 1 orange that matched the fantastic orange console has been changed to be a much more reddish brownish sort of orange.

I was super-happy to get my hands on those bad boys to get a far more comfortable experience on the N64 without the wear-and-tear on the original’s joystick. That being said, the moment I held the Brawler64 in my hands (before even playing any games with it) I knew playing my N64 would never be the same again. When the stick is pointed at up-left corner, the edge of the stick’s base interacts with the L-button, pushing it backwards. Also, I love the colors, I'm so glad I found you guys, and I've already recommended you to a co-worker. After much feedback from the retro gaming community, we’ve upgraded the feel of “Z” triggers to have a more “digital” press versus an “analog” pull.
