You'd be better off with a Genesis 6-button controller, now that was designed for Street Fighter and the like. The SNES controller is weird having some of the buttons moved over to triggers.


On the contrary as much as I love Genesis (for me it's MegaDrive) I don't think the 6 button pad is as good. It has 6 buttons on the face but I find the SNES pad's L/R buttons easier to twitch press than the extra 2 on the front of the SEGA pad.

Add to that, that the VB and SNES both being Nintendo consoles feels like a more apt fit, the easier build methods and also that I first played SF2 on a SNES pad many moons ago, I wouldn't consider another controller for this little fix.

Maybe the ideal is a Saturn pad, as it has those 6 buttons plus shoulder L/R. I never had nor played a Saturn though so not considering it.

You might be surprised that overall my favourite 16-bit console port probably is the MegaDrive though, it's amazing with the 6 button arcade stick and with a good pair of headphones, on an RGB CRT.

Why would anyone want to use something other than a VB controller?
Besides, the SNES controller doesn't have enough buttons.


Short answer - to use specifically for the Hyper Fighting demo.

The SNES / SFC controller was designed with Street Fighter 2 significantly in mind, so I'd like to try Hyper Fighting out again on VB with a Super Famicom controller.

You're right the VB controller is great and is unique - charming even, but I'd really like to test the demo out with the SFC controller.

So just for that one experience, not as a replacement, but as an option. I have someone who's helping me be able to do that - so a very big thank you to that person, I super appreciate it and can't wait.

No prob DogP, if anyone can help me out I will make it worth their while - I have donor controllers set up to run with, just don't have the skills.

This is only going to be used for one demo in particular but it's worth it in my eyes to play it that way as an alternative.

It's ultimately the power that confuses me - having that separate cable makes it complicated.

Wah, that's well outside the realm of how far I can get with this :(

Essentially, I would just love to play some VB games with a SNES controller - can someone help me out? I really do need (or least would be super grateful for) someone to help me out here.

I am def willing to pay for a commission on this, I really hope someone can help me out - I have zero electronics knowledge and what's more I can barely solder, sorry it's not my forte.

I'm good with artwork and really good at some things, but this isn't one of them :)

That might be really simple to you DogP but I already got lost when you got to ground, clock, data etc...

Is there any chance you'd consider making one or two for me if I sent the bits and paid you for your time? It wouldn't have to be right away or anything, but I'd really, really appreciate it.

If not I could try myself but I have tried things like this in the past even with 1:1 controllers and I just made a balls up of it.

Thank you, thank you for these points and the FAQ of sorts, I really do appreciate it.

Trouble is, I really don't think I can make one of these, and to top it I was hoping to make two.

Is there any chance I could commission one from you or someone else on the board? I'd love to be able to play with one of these.

I searched the forum but couldn't find anything on this..

Is there a tutorial somewheer to create a SNES controller that works on the Virtual Boy?

Here's the Project VB page:
http://www.projectvb.com/mods/controllers/ninadapt.html

Open in new window


I've got a few SNES controllers I can use for donors, what else do I need to use?

Ideally I'd ike to make a straight SNES controller with a VB adaptor on the end (as opposed to a combi like the image above)...

Yay for more NES, or in my case Famicom :D

Not sure I can consider PS1 vintage - but I guess everything becomes vintage at some point, just a sign of the times.
