The build quality is nice. It does fit quite tight in the N64 port and definitely won’t pop in and out as easy as a controller, but I’m fine with that. I synced a N64 controller with the 8Bitdo N64 wireless mod kit installed, but even better I also synced it with Nintendo’s own N64 NSO controller. Both without issues. I can’t configure it using Safari unfortunately, it requires something like Chrome and such to do that but that is a limitation of Safari and not this product. Memory and rumble support is awesome as well. Just a very nice product!
It works but the advanced features are not ideal. Connecting a bluetooth controller, e.g. a DS4 works fine and the default mappings make sense. You also can swap a virtual memory pak with a rumble pak by pressing the home button, touchpad switches 1 of 4 memory paks. That's all good. However where it goes off the rails is in the configuration. Using a public web page and the Bluetooth API in chrome is somewhat clunky and there are a number of features just missing from what I can see. Or maybe they are there but the wiki explanations don't explain well enough. Short version is right now it's a clunky 3-star, hopefully with some improvements it could be a 5-star but as of this moment, it's not there. Buy it to connect your Switch N64 controller and leave the mappings alone, multiple profiles just aren't implemented well enough yet and the configuration tool is IMHO a net negative.
Exactly what I wanted!
Der Adapter hat keine spürbaren Verzögerung. Getestet mit dem N64 Switch Controller und zusätzlich noch eine Speicherplatz für Spielstände einfach super. Benutzte 4 Stück an einer Konsole. Keine Problem damit
Recently rekindled my childhood by buying a N64. I think we all remember the issues with the poor quality of the original N64 controllers. A combination of this product and the Switch N64 wireless controller I've found the perfect balance. The NSO controller offers rumble pack and an easy way to switch between rumble and memory pack. 2 comments for anyone buying the products. First is that you will have to connect to the adapter and format the memory slots before being able to access them, takes a couple of minutes through your phone or computer. Second comment is to not update the firmware to 1.91 if you plan to use the Switch N64 controller, it caused the controller to disconnect after about 15 min of use, i reset the device by holding the button for 15 seconds to rollback the firmware and it's now working spot on All in all, 5/5, getting 3 more to give a more modern authentic experience to the Nintendo 64
Maybe I'd have preferred to play with 2.4GHz controllers instead of Bluetooth ones, but that's the market
Great product for using multiple controllers with your N64 with ease.
Just plug and play, awesome product
Product will disconnect from controller after a few hours of usage. When this occurs, I am unable to re-pair the controller or save my game until I reset the console. Doesn't feel good to lose hours worth of gametime due to being unable to save.
