Woof, I should’ve just waited until I had an N64 Joycon before taking the plunge on the Expansion Pack. My brain cannot handle the button mapping they use. Especially egregious is Star Fox 64 using ZL to rotate left but R to rotate right.

Sin and Punishment is a nightmare to control, though that game was always hard to control. They at least change up the button mapping to fit that game better.

Yeah the N64 controller mapping is just… unforgivably bizarre.

At least the Genesis emulation is solid and that’s what I was more invested in.
 
No, N64 has no rewind. Really soured on this. Not being able to re-map controls in 2021 is absolutely inexcusable, both from an accessibility standpoint and a "What the fuck are you even doing?!?!" viewpoint. Just absolute crap designed to make you buy a 40 dollar controller.

Not to mention this emulation still doesn't account for controller packs. Feels like walking in a time warp to early 2000s N64 emulators

Welp, glad I held off on this. Gonna continue to wait and see if they improve the controller issues, or add the Goemon games or something.

Man fuck Nintendo and their attempt to wring double the price for their shitty online.

No doubt that Nintendo 64 Online was rushed out the door so Nintendo could have their new costlier Switch Online plan option ready for the holiday season.

The face button mapping makes sense in stuff like Star Fox 64 where down C and left C are used as regular buttons. Though of course they have the buttons rotated from the original orientation because A must be A, darn it!

Nintendo has always sucked at button mapping (I remember having to claw my hand to play NES Mega Man in 3DS) and I knew they weren't reworking their N64 games that took advantage of SD resolution to hide artifacts to look better in HD.

Disappointed? Yes, but surprised? No. Nintendo gotta Nintendo.

(that said, judging by Nintendo's record it'll surely get better. Could be tomorrow or could be two gens from now - I might give them my money then)

Buttons are probably the #1 thing Nintendo sucks at. It just gets worse with time.

I've got the N64 controller and it makes the N64 games feel so much better. There's absolutely lag in OoT, which I mainly feel when playing the ocarina. The game itself plays OK to me, but I should point out that I live in PAL land so an NTSC game will probably be quite a bit snappier and hide it a bit. The fog is the only real graphical error I've seen so far.

The Mega Drive selection is just incredible for a first set of games. Although the N64 controller doesn't work with those games because reasons. One of the buttons isn't mapped :mad:

Wait, is the N64 using PAL versions?

did i do all of that?

Got my Switch N64 controller.

Does anyone know of any links describing how to get it to work on anything other than a Switch? Hilariously, the controller will not work with Super Mario 64 in the 3D All Stars collection - no button on the controller allows Mario to punch (B is mapped to jump again). lol

Can't wait to find out what compensation Nintendo Switch Online+ Ambassadors are going to receive.

Apparently support for the N64 controller in Mario64 was patched in today.
