Innext Controller Setup

Controller Configuration

The controller is a simple "plug 'n' play" device, meaning it only needs to be connected to the computer and it will work out of the box.

There still is some configuring to be done to get the SNES USB controller to work with computer programs like emulators.

Test the Calibration

Unravel the Super Nintendo USB controller and insert its USB cable into the computer's USB port. Open the emulator program you will be using the controller with on your computer. Click the "Options" button at the top of the program's window.

You see an option for "Controller" or "Input" configuration. Click this option. A list of controller buttons appears on screen. Click each controller button on the computer monitor. Press the button on the SNES USB controller that will be used as that emulator controller button, and continue "mapping" each button to the SNES USB controller.

Click "OK" to save the controller settings. The SNES USB controller can now be used to play your emulator programs.

Just picked up an iNNEXT USB Game Controller off Amazon to use with my TheC64 Mini and Maxi consoles. Well unfortunately after almost 40 years of faithful service my C64C has started to act up. It’s been crashing and freezing whilst playing games that have always run flawlessly before. I’ve ran my diagnostic cart on it and everything passed so I’m hoping it’s just the electrolytic capacitors.


My C64C has never been recapped before so it’s been packaged up carefully and sent away to an expert to get them all replaced. I decided not to attempt it myself as I don’t want to risk causing further damage with my dodgy soldering skills! I’ll know the outcome of this in a couple of weeks when I get it back. Anyway, in the mean time I still want to be able to play my C64 games without having to resort to the Zip stick wannabe’s that the Mini/Maxi consoles come with.

Even though the stick that came with the Maxi is much improved I just prefer a gamepad controller these days. I’m sure there are other controllers out there that will work but I chose these for a number of reasons.

A Closer Look

The most important one being that in addition to the D-pad they have 8 buttons, matching the number of buttons on TheC64 joystick. They also looked great and came in a pack of 2 for a reasonable price.

Why Would I Need to Do This?

I was a little apprehensive when purchasing as I wasn’t sure if all the buttons would actually be recognised by the console. This is why I thought I’d share my experience in case anyone else is looking for a similar gamepad for their TheC64’s.

Back of the box. I was fully expecting a nondescript plain box as is often the case with cheap Chinese goods.
