Okay, so I'm running Nestopia on my PowerPC Mac Mini, and I'm using this driver along with a Microsoft wireless gaming receiver to allow usage of the 360 controller on the Mac. I have successfully mapped 2 controllers to the 1 and 2 player control config, but only the player 1 controller works, the other does not work at all. Snes9x is able to handle both controllers discreetly, so I can have PvP in Street Fighter, but Nestopia is having problems with my good ole NES games. Any ideas? (I searched before I posted)

To put it more succinctly, is anyone else having a problem getting 2 identical controllers recognized individually? The wireless part is handled at the driver level, and that works fine, so I would imagine the controllers look just like usb devices to Nestopia. C'mon, show Luigi some love, he just stands there at lvl 1-1 until time runs out!

Agreed, it oughta work, but I don't have 2 identical controllers to try (I have one wired and one wireless 360 controller since I bought a base model and upgraded it later, but not the wireless USB dongle thingy). Marty, any ideas?

I was able to set up my dualshocks, I have 2 of them hooked up via 1 2 in 1 usb adapter, I don't seem to have a problem.

Is this a "Vista" thing, I'm using XP SP 2 BTW.

I am new to Nestopia, but my husband isn't. Says it's the greatest emulator he's ever used. We recently put our pc through ou Home theatre system and now get to play Nintendo games on 42" high def. Seems ironic with the available computing power we have, we revert to the games of our youth. We are running Vista with no option to change to XP and we have exactly the same problem. We can get the controllers recognized by the system, we can even map for the second controller, but when we try to use the second player's controller, it doesn't respond. If you have any advice on how to get this to work itwould be appreciated.

hey everyone.... new guy. so this is my problem.... i downloaded nestopia and everything is running great. the keyboard was a pain in the ass, so i decided to get a wireless xbox 360 controller for the PC. so i installed the drivers and all the patches and updates. the computer detects the controller and responds to it whenever i push the X button in the middle of the controller. so when i activate the emulator and the game and try to contol my game... nothing happens. it works great on the keyboard but not on the controller. i try accessing my input controls on the emulator and it also detects it.... but nothing happens. and yes i do have a wireless adapter for the controller which came with it. i am running nestopia on a HP pavillion with windows vista home premium 32-bit. i really want to play these games.... someone help me.... should i just get a cheap logitech controller????

i'll just chime in for a quick comment..you might want to try Xpadder or some other external keyboard emulation software so at least you can play your games for now. at least until the real solution is found.

Welp I personally am able to use two wireless xbox360 controllers with my vista x64 pc setup in our living room as a media center. I am having a problem that it erases my controller config if I happen to turn it on without a controller turned on. Is that happening to some of you? Are you turning it on sometimes with only one controller turned on and so its erasing the seconds config?

When you are setting the config kazlady are you making sure to choose the second xbox 360 wireless controller from the little pull down menu on the upper right part of the input config screen? It should say joy1 for player 2 when you configure it. and player one of course should say joy0.

And unfortunately xpadder does not work with the wireless 360 controllers. There is a japanese driver(with an english translation) that will make it appear that the controller is always plugged in and it will give alot more config options. But it makes it a one controller per wireless gaming reciever setup. So if you wanted to use two controllers you would have to have two wireless gaming recievers.

I was thinking xbcd actually, sorry. Xpadder has some issues though. Really nothing should be required but microsofts driver as it works ok for me here with two controllers. I really hate having more stuff running than necessary, and xpadder is a bit flaky for sure, white screens(believe he fixed that) and multiple controllers showing up and such)
