So I've been searching for a vista compatible usb that will connect my N64 controller to my computer. I found this.

However its not vista compatible.
Anyone know of one that is less than $20 that will work with vista???

I don't, but have you ever tried a gamecube controller? It's amazing in comparison to the n64 controller, especially joystick-wise.

Now that I think about it, I remember there being an all in one USB thing for many different controllers, sorta looks like a power bar. Maybe this will help you in your search, now that you know one exists.

Sorry I don't know anything about Vista but the device works just fine on Windows 7.

Here's one:
The 3-in-1 Magic Joy Box (google it)
I am thinking about getting this as well, but I'm not sure if it is worth it.

Im using windows 7 and I have the adapter for the 64 controller, my computer recognized it but when I start the emulator the controller wont work only the keyboard, and playing perfect dark on the keyboard is no fun...

Try using a wired/wireless Xbox 360 controller. U should be able get a wired one,from Amazon, for about 17 bucks.I also can help with setup.

Keyboard should work just fine on a plugged-emulated controller field if keys are mapped.

Wow, I didn't know such things existed, thanks!

I'll keep my eyes peeled for a Vista one.

I'm not sure if the connector between the desktop and the keyboard counts as an adapter. :rolleyes:
