An adapter to use N64 controllers on a Wii or Gamecube. Now also compatible with the Switch and Game Boy player.


For firmware(s):

Instructions:

To enable a mapping, press the corresponding button at the right moment. The right moment being one of:The adapter saves and restores the last mapping automatically. (i.e. If you are always playing the same game, no need to re-enable the mapping every time you use the adapter)

Please also note:
Firmware version 2.0 contains a bug which prevents the above from working properly. But there is a workaround: Press Dpad-Up together with the button corresponding to the mapping you wish to enable and it will work.

This issue has been fixed in firmware v2.1. Adapters shipped after February 24 2019 are all programmed with version 2.1.
