A project developed to use USB controllers on the Nintendo 64 console.
Precompiled binaries can be downloaded from Releases.
NOTE: This project is still in development and bugs are certainly still present. I plan to play alot of N64 to test 😄.

  • N64 controller emulation (up to four controllers at once!).
  • Rumblepak emulation.
  • Mempak emulation with four selectable banks. Technically unlimited.
  • Transferpak emulation. Put Gameboy ROMS on an SD Card!
  • N64 mouse emulation. Use a USB Mouse!
  • Configurable deadzones and sensitivity from the N64 Console.
  • True dual analog sticks with GoldenEye and Perfect Dark.
  • SD card driver with FATFS support for storage/backup of Gameboy ROMS, mempaks etc.
  • A single hardwired controller interface for ultimate hacking.
  • Optional TFT LCD Support.
  • Raspberry Pi interface or equivalent for all other USB controllers.
  • More inbuilt USB controller drivers.
  • Bluetooth 8bitdo/compatible controllers via the 8BitDo Wireless USB Adapter
  • Wired 8bitdo controllers when they are started in X-input mode.
  • Xbox S/X Wired
  • Xbox one Wired (Genuine / PDP)
  • Xbox 360 Wired
  • Xbox 360 Wireless (Via PC USB Receiver)
  • PS4 Wired
  • A hardwired controller, use your own buttons etc.
  • Back + D-Pad = Insert Mempak banks 1 to 4
  • Back + LB = Insert Rumblepak
  • Back + RB = Insert Transferpak
  • Back + Start = Select virtual pak (Use in-game mempak managers to configure the device)
  • Back + B = Switch to true dual-analog stick more for GoldenEye 007/Perfect Dark
