5.0 out of 5 stars FOR EVERYONE HAVING ISSUES September 3, 2011
By James W
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
For everyone having issues with their controllers I have found something interesting you should try first. I have many Super Nintendo controllers and have found that some work, some don't. On the back of each controller you will find the model number. The most common is the SNS-005. The SNS-102 is the controller that came with the smaller edition Super Nintendo. I also have the aftermarket Super Pad by Performance.

What I have found after testing the different controllers is that the SNS-005 controllers are hit or miss. I have one SNS-005 controller that only the B button works yet the other two I tested work perfect. I have found the SNS-102 works fine as does the Super pad. I have no idea why some refuse to work but I can understand your frustrations because the same happened to me.

Defiantly try out the different controllers that you have lying around because if one doesn't work chances are the others you have will. The first controller that I plugged in didn't work and immediately I thought I was out eleven dollars. My heart sunk as I tried different usb ports and searched for a driver. Then I jumped up with joy as the next controller I tried worked! Hope this helps guys, feel free to ask any questions. This adapter in my opinion is so well worth the money for any SNES collector because there is nothing like having an actual SNES controller in your hand while you play. It totally changes the whole experience.

One last thing, I have found the best way to play Super Nintendo with people over the internet. You need to download and install a program called ZBattle.Net. Also you must Google ZSNES Version 1.36 since it is the most common used even though its not the latest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Windows 7 & ZSNES compatible. August 9, 2011
By Max

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I can happily confirm that this works on my Windows 7 64 bit machine on the ZSNES emulator.
You just have to configure it correctly in ZSNES's settings.
Time for some Super Mario World! Cheers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works with PC and Raspberry Pi August 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
I desperately needed an SNES adapter to work with my Raspberry Pi, and this was the only one I could find on here that actually worked (the Gtron ones have a driver issue where the D-Pad gets stuck). Tried it on Windows 7 as well and it worked

Plugging in controllers after the adapter has been connected is a little flaky; sometimes it seems to cause both controllers to not work. However, the solution was to just pull out/plug back in the USB adapter. I chalk it up to the Pi board though

5.0 out of 5 stars Works like a charm on my Mac October 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just wanted to let everyone know if you have a Mac, this adapter will work even though it says PC on it. I play lots of games with my SNES emulator on my iMac. It is a new model desktop, and operates with Lion. I plugged my two SNES original nintendo controllers into it, plugged the USB into the computer, configured the controllers on the emulator and was playing 2 player mario kart in no time! Very cool, love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works on Macs & ZSNES December 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have two of these: Super Nintendo Turbo Controller (AsciiPad) and the adapter works great with them - the turbo functions and slow-mo even work! My Mac is running Lion and I use ZSNES. SO GOOD to be able to play Mario Kart and Mega Man X for real instead of stumbling through using a keyboard. It even makes RPGs better. I haven't used one of those clone controllers but I'm willing to bet this is way better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works exactly as promised. January 10, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I wanted to get my snes out of my room and this allowed me to use the original controllers with my computer. Both controllers are immediatly recognized and work right away in snes9x, fceux, and vba with a quick remaping. Highly recomended, now I have no need for the old consoles.

the usb length is about 18" but since I have the snes extensions It's not a problem for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars For those worried about input lag: February 4, 2014
By Ally R.
I'm pretty sensitive to input lag issues and would like to point out that this adapter doesn't really cause any that I can notice. If you're noticing lag while using this adapter, read on:

Many emulators have fundamentally flawed Vsync approaches that cause both input lag and non-smooth scrolling. Many emulators/frontends like Retroarch have the ability to fix this issue by syncing the game's internal clock to the refresh rate of your monitor, which is usually just a variance of less than 1% on a standard 60 Hz display. This nearly eliminates any perceived lag and greatly increases motion quality.

For example, you can do this in Retroarch by turning VSync off and Hard GPU Sync on. Mame has similar options:
[...]

Anyway this adapter runs with both my original 2 SNES controllers that came with my console as a kid, as well as the short-cord Super Famicom controller I have.

4.0 out of 5 stars How to fix the SNS-005 issues... October 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
One of my two SNS-005 controllers does not work reliably, and it seems to be due to insufficient filtering on this unit. I've had some success by using a "choke" on the cord. This can be as simple as coiling the cord tightly into a loop (6+ loops around my finger seems to work) and zip-tying the bundle together. I've had better luck by using a couple clip-on RF chokes. I think maybe connecting a capacitor from the signal lines to ground inside the USB box might fix the problem more permanently, but I haven't investigated this yet.

I should also note that one of my SNS-005 controllers works without modification, and it is an earlier model which seems to have more built-in passive filtering, based on a quick inspection of the PCB. Also, even with three chokes on the cord, the troublesome controller only works on one of the two ports, and even then, the select/start buttons are still finicky. I'm sure I can get it working flawlessly if I spend a bit more time tweaking it.

Please help your fellow gamers, and report back if this works for you!
