N64 start button don't work

Post by mcandelaria » Wed Aug 15, 2018 1:51 pm

Anyone having issues with games that requires you to press the Start button on N64 ( I'm using 8bitdo nes30 Pro)? I downloaded Super Mario 64 and can't get passed the main screen that has Mario's head. Some other N64 games work by pressing A or B button but that don't work with this game. Thanks in advance!

Try binding your controls while in the N64 menu, game selection. See if that will work.

Try opening project 64 in Windows and binding the controls there.
If you are having a software problem be it front end, Windows, or want to try RetroArch and LauchBox but need help feel free to contact me. Post on the forum, PM here, or on Discord. I will be more then happy to do my best to get you sorted.

I tried binding the Nes30 pro and my Xbox one controller through project64 and I can't even get it to recognize either controller.

Try this then.

Exit the FE.
At the bottom at the search box.
Type joy.cpl
Click on on the icon.
Find your controllers. Make sure they are either connected or plugged.
Double click your controller in the box.
And test your controller. If you see it working. Then you should have no issues then, as long as Windows sees it.
With Xbox, there are some issues, but due to Windows, not Replay.
Try updating the firmware on the NES30Pro.

While your in the emulator, binding controls, try changing to Xinput.

Well I updated my controller and did the controller test and both were successful. I was able to finally bind the controllers through project64 and able to press start in Mario 64! Still some issues with my left joystick assignment. Only able to move Mario forward and backwards.Thank you both for the help. I really appreciate it. :D
