Controller suggestion

Post by bungeemike » Tue Oct 09, 2018 9:35 pm

As I finally have some time now to tinker with the Replay (busy work schedule last few months), I wanted to find out if there are good controllers people would recommend (over the Replay controller). I had purchased an Xbox One controller but not sure what I'm doing wrong, but I can't get it to sync via bluetooth.

So just wanted some suggestions for easy to work with Controllers you guys would recommend (bluetooth or corded).

Thanks much for your help!

I do like the Replay controller for home consoles. I do enjoy my Tankstick from X-Arcade for Arcade games. I also have NES and SNES 8bitdo Bluetooth (non pro series), works very well. And used iNNEXT (usb). Works pretty decent.

Is the Tank Stick a usb controller? That might be something that would feel nice to play on......

Yes, its a USB plug. Check out X-Arcade website.

Here is a video done by ETA Prime. To give you an idea how big this thing is.

Last question.....found the 8bitdo controllers at my local Frys. I bought both the pro and the non-pro version you mentioned. Does the pro version work with the Replay? I like the the two little joysticks if they work on the Replay......

Thanks much for your help!

I know the non pro works like a charm. The pro ones do have a little issue. Some users have noticed button configuration problems, sync, and not able to work at all. I'm not sure if this is due to firmware on the controller or a bug in Replay's controller set up.

Dreamcade is aware of this issue and working on it.
