    any control you want pimp, in USB. you just assign the keys inside the emulator and rock out. :bigthumb: :bigthumb:

    That's what I thought, so I got a USB pad. It was so slow:( Even worse than the keypad.

    Does anyone have a recomendation for a good game pad?

    edit:....oops

    every PC/Mac specific USB controller ive tried has been garbage.

    until this:
    http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-1i-49-en-70-cj4.html
    THE BEST controller ever made, now in USB.

    I also sometimes use a playstation -> USB adapter i bought at radio shack. it works great, but i generally prefer the saturn pad.

    SNES emulator I use is Snes9X. And i've got all the mario roms, plus a few hockey games and super bomberman 2


    So, I guess I should order that super sega game pad or w/e. It's really hard using a keyboard on hockey games. Snes9x lets you configure which keys you want to be which buttons.

    I.E. for snes i've got A-A, S-B, D-X, Q-Y, W-Left trigger, E-Right trigger.
