Anyone tried to use the 8bitdo modkit for the original N64 controller with the MiSTer? I just got mine, but early tests were quite confusing.
It sort of worked both over bluetooth and over USB, but I can't assign every button of the original controller inside the N64 core or the MiSTer main menu. I connected it to my computer and tested with jstest on Linux and there's some weird stuff going on. It advertises 8 axis, two for the d-pad, two for the analog stick, and four for the C buttons, two of them work as a regular d-pad and the other two also change when I press the C buttons, but instead of being neutral by default, it defaults to pointing to a diagonal.
When I try to set it up, what happens is usually the C up and C left won't get recognized. I tried cleaning the rubber pads to make sure it wasn't bad connection, but when connected to my PC it register those button presses just fine. I thought maybe it was getting confused with the C buttons showing up as another d-pad, but then I remember it worked when I assigned the right analog joystick with the DS4 as a stand-in for the N64 controller before the modkit arrived, maybe it's the other two axes screwing up with the input mapping setup?
I still have to try using the 8bitdo bluetooth adapter, as some people have reported it helped using the NSO N64 controller with it and this modkit seems to work with the Switch just as if it was a NSO controller. I'll have to dig around my mess of controllers and accessories to find where I left it and give it a go.
