After a ‘not insubstantial’ amount of forum research, I still find controller mappings a challenge, to say the least.
That said, I think I’ve managed to get my 2 x Sony DualShock 2 controllers with USB adapters and 2 x official Sega Saturn Model 2 Controllers with Mayflash adapter up and running happily with my other cores & games.
…so I thought I’d throw a core I’ve never used, for a console I never played into the mix for good measure…
I’ve got Mario Kart 64 up and running on Mupen64Plus-Next core, with the recent ParaLLEl-RDP/RSP improvement goodness, so it looks good on my setup.
Default mappings for my DS2 controllers work really well.
Default mappings for my Saturn pads are an utter, absolute pain in the a$$.
I’ve just about managed to get the directional pad to steer the kart, plus accelerate & brake control working but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to fix the remaining controls in the in-game quick menu.
Stupid N64 pad, with it’s stupid Z trigger and C button madness… grumble, grumble…
I love the 6 button Saturn pads for fighting games but am on the verge of buying another 2 x DS2 pads because my other 2 just work with this game and it seems like my only current option to get some 4-player kart shenanigans into my life.
Is there anyone else using these controllers to play this game, willing to share their mappings, please?
