I use this with the Switch N64 controller recreation from Nintendo. Being able to switch between Memory Pak and Rumble Pak at the press of the home button is excellent for games like Goemon which use both. The inbuilt memory pak's work great with the Everdrive 64's memory pak management features, meaning you basically have infinite memory paks if you use it with that as well.
This product pairs wonderfully with the 8bitdo N64 Bluetooth controller mod. These 2 products together allow me to play on an original console with an original controller wirelessly! So cool! I highly recommend this!
What more is there to say about this product that hasn't already been said. It works flawlessly with my original N64 console, I strongly recommend if you do have original hardware with a wireless N64 Switch controller, this receiver is for you!
Bin mit den Adapter sehr zu frieden. Er verbindet sich problemlos mit den N64 Controller von der Switch, und hat noch zusätzliche einen eingebauten Speicher für Spiel Stände sauber Lösung.
Works exactly as described. Easy to set up. Tested with an Xbox One controller (late gen, bluetooth) and it was easy to pair and configure, and no input delay that I could notice. Memory pak didn't work out of the box, but configuring it with the web app on my phone was quick and easy. Now I need the right controller to really use this thing properly. Highly recommended.
Looks great and pairs perfect with NSO 64 controller. Only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the formatting process that needs to be done to the four memory banks and to activate rumble. These steps were not included and found a YouTube video to walk me through. Besides that, it is what it is. I highly recommend.
I waited almost four months and was excited when it arrived just to be disappointed when I opened the package. I ordered two adapters and both had crooked plugs on them. I wanted to be sure so I connected them to the N64 and they hung low with a gap at the top connection point. When I tried to remove them it wouldn't pull straight out and wedged. I had to grap at the connection point and carefully wiggle it. They're also made in China just like their competitor's, but cost more. I would not purchase again. <br /> 8BITMODS Response: I'm sorry that you were not satisfied by the quality of the adapters you received. The plugs should not be crooked and we have taken action to make sure this doesn't happen again. You have now been offered a refund for the adapters as per your request. We'd also like to point out that while the PCBs are manufactured in China, the design and assembly is done in-house in the UK and despite of this small issue, the overall quality of our adapters is considerably higher than our competitor's.
Probably, the best way to use original N64 Switch controller with actual N64!
I use this with the official N64 wireless controller and it works a charm!
