I thought I would try the commodore 64 VICE emulator, I can get the programs to load and run, but I can’t get it to see the controller in the actual games, I can go to settings in the VICE menu and setup joystick one, and it see’s the button presses when I map the joystick/gamepad but even when I save the settings it won’t use it, or keyboard inputs either. All my other emulators are working with this controller (standard SNES usb controller).
Just to follow up for the searches later, I found that most of the games would only work with JOYSTICK 2 selected, and it would let me map the controller that way and play the games. Kind of odd, but theirs like 5000 games out there for the C64.
Oh and If you don’t setup a keyboard to navigate in EM, VICE won’t see it either.
