    When an SNES controller is used for SNES titles or when a NES controller is used for a NES title, the mapping is simple. But using an SNES controller for NES games is far from perfect if the A and B buttons are mapped to the classic controller A and B buttons.

    Enabling NES mode:
    Press START+SELECT+L+R+DOWN simultaneously. In this mode, the SNES button placement will be much more adapted to virtual console NES titles.

    Enabling analog mode::
    Press START+SELECT+L+R+LEFT simultaneously. In this mode, the SNES D-Pad controls the classic controller left stick. This mode might not be very useful, but beating a friend with such a setup is quite funny.

    Restoring standard mode:
    Press START+SELECT+L+R+UP simultaneously.

    Home button:
    Triple-clicking the start button will trigger the home button. (Version 1.9.5 and up)
