My Super Nintendo controller's cord is a goddamn.... three feet long. This means I can barely sit on the edge of my bed and still be able to play a Super Nintendo game. When my friend gave me a Super Nintendo one or two Christmas' ago, he didn't include the range extender.
By comparison, my hardwired Xbox 360 controller's cord is 9 feet long; a comfortable distance. Perhaps a bit too much; it's longer than the GameCube's.
I could get one of the extension cables from Amazon, but I don't really want to go that route.SO
what I want to know is:
- Take an original SNES controller and use some kind of bluetooth dongle/infrared thingy as well as a receiver and make a wireless SNES controller that actually works with a real SNES?
- Take one of them thar SNES USB pads for PC and make/use some kind of reverse (PC back to console) converter and make it work with a SNES?
- Combine 1 and 2?
I have read articles and how-to guides on the interwebz about making wireless SNES controllers for Wii. I don't want that. I want it to work with an actual Super Nintendo.
- Can I make a wireless SNES controller for my SNES?
- Can I take a SNES pad for PC and make it work for my SNES?
- do both
And I don't want no GD facepalms or comments like "FC y dont u just use ZSNES and get a PC SNES USB pad nd connect ur PC to ur TV" or "FC u know u can just use virtual console on Wii rite? nd if u want to u can make a snes pad compatible with ur wii" or "lol ur a dumbass." Because:
1. Boy, didn't anybody ever tell you there ain't nothin like the real thing? and
2. I have a SNES, I might as well get some use out of it. Especially considering the fact that I got it relatively recently.
P.S. I figure Nuke will know something about this. He is
making a "Joystick of Doom," after all, even if it is for PC.
