    Hi,

    While I’m waiting to order and install my arcade controls, can you still use USB controllers after the ControlBlock and binaries are installed or does the ControlBlock take over completely?

    I’d like to start using the Power Switch function while I’m waiting.

    Thanks!

    I’m using two NES controllers via CB, and planning to use two usb SNES and two wired xbox 360’s depending on what emulator I’m using (and maybe some usb N64 in the future).

    Currently I’m looking into this post to make the mess work, if it’s even possible.

    edit: short answer is yes, as long as you don’t mind figuring out which controller is where etc.

    The ControlBlock service installs two gamepads which use the CB as input. Any other gamepad that is, e.g., connected via USB is detected as additional gamepad in the operating system and they do not interfere with each other.

    Thank you for the info. I finally got a chance to attach it and found that out.
