Newbie needeing a decent usb gamepad advice !
« on: 03 June 2018, 15:04:14 »
Hi all

Last time I played this great game was on my amiga 1200 using my megadrive game pad which worked great - but that was a looong time ago.

Download the game today and its playing fine , I bought a cheap megadrive usb type pad just to get going again.

I think the pad is really poor as its reaction time is terrible and the players don't seem to pick up the ball much, so can I get some advice as to a good USB pad to buy please, I am hopeless with a joystick or a PS4 type controller as I cant use the sticks so a pad is the way to go

Any help would be great thanks

Pete

Buy this adpater (Mega Drive to PC) -> https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/To-PC-Dual-Port-2-Controller-OTG-USB-Adapter-for-Sega-Mega-Drive-Genesis/362284396304?hash=item5459d52f10:g:cd8AAOSweCNawH6W

Also buy an original Mega Drive Pad on ebay if you was used to play it back in the days (and if you war still interessted in playing with a Mega Drive Pad). A used original Sega Mega Drive Pad is even better then a new Mega Drive to USB Clone Pad.

Try the Buffalo! SNES style, very good built!

If you want a Super Nintendo Pad, Just get an original Super Nintendo Pad + an adaptor SNES to PC (not this SNES Style pad for PC). In my eyes, 90% of all cloned pads are poor quality, just go with the original.

The Buffalo is known for its quality. I have both, original SNES and the Buffalo. Can see/feel no difference, at all.
