So ive been looking for Emulators that function with my Logitech controller and none of the NES emulators had controller support. So what emulators do you guys run on any platform that are compatible with our macs and controller support. I have a the 1.8ghz core2duo in case thats needed.

Nestopia works. You just need to download Emulation Enhancer from here:

http://www.bannister.org/software/ee.htm

Install that and configure it in Nestopia

You have to click the 'Set' button then push the button on the controller for that movement/action

I put the Enhancer in the same folder as the emulator(its on a external hard drive) But when i downloaded it to the folder, there was no change in the Emulator i didnt see a way to set the controller.

Nestopia.


Here are ones that have issues.

Any nintendo 64 emulator.

Any snes emulator because they want you to pay 39.99 for the emulator.

Snes9x and ZSNES are both free...and work fine. Don't know where anyone is getting that they cost money.

Also, sixtyforce (N64) has always worked perfectly fine for me.

Maybe some of you are on PPC Minis?

I just downloaded sixtyforce for my new Mac Mini, and I can't figure out how to exit full screen mode with my DiNovo Mini (tried CMD Q, CMD H...nothing). I'm forced to hard-shut down the computer, which I don't like to do, so I haven't gone full screen, which sucks given I just bought a new 50" plasma. Any thoughts? Am I missing something obvious? Also, I'm planning on getting a XBOX 360 controller - any idea if it will work?

Thanks for your help.

yes the xbox 360 controller does work on the macintosh if you want to go all out,

purchase the xbox 360 wireless receiver for windows 19.99 it is the receiver that runs all the 360 wireless controllers and headsets for the 360.

Then purchase a 360 wireless controller.

then install gamepad companion

then install the xbox 360 controller driver from this link.

http://tattiebogle.net/index.php/ProjectRoot/Xbox360Controller/OsxDriver

it works great.

but you need gamepad companion to reconfigure the controller
