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.Read more ›
You just have to configure it correctly in ZSNES's settings.
Time for some Super Mario World! Cheers!
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
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.
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!
EDIT: It turns out that my adapter works flawlessly with Super Famicom SHVC-005 controllers. As another reviewer stated, it seems that the SNS-005 controllers are finnicky.
