Play N64-emulator games using the original controller and Arduino

Instructables member and NIntendo64 fan ‘quasse’ has described how to use the original Nintendo64 controller with a PC running an N64 emulator via an Arduino. Naturally the Arduino board is the bridge between the PC’s USB port and the N64 controller, and the process to do this is quite simple. He also includes the Processing sketch which interprets the signals from the controller via the Arduino, and converts them to the relevant key presses for the emulator software. 

So if late 1990s video games take your fancy, or you’d like to play one more game of “GoldenEye”, check out the instructions here. And we’re on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

 

When creating more complex circuitry to work with an Arduino-compatible project – consider our range of ProtoShields. From the tiny LeoStick to the Mega range, we offer a complete range for you to work with.
