Dual Inputs Now Available!

After thoroughly testing the dual input version of the adapter, and being satisfied that all functions of both the Nintendo 64 controller input, and the GameCube controller input work perfectly, I have decided to add the option to upgrade your adapter if you are one of the 20 people who have already pledged.

This upgrade will add an additional GameCube controller input to your adapter. This means you can play using either a N64 controller, or a GameCube controller. The GameCube controller input will also reverse the Wii VC (and GC LOZ) stick mappings, just like the Nintendo 64 input. This gives you much more control when playing with a GameCube controller, and makes playing using a GameCube analogue stick feel very similar to playing using a GameCube controller, with an adapter, on the original N64 console.

Please note that having an additional GameCube controller input comes at the cost of the Rumble Pak support for the Nintendo 64 input. So if you choose this feature, your adapter will NOT have Rumble Pak Support! This is due to technical limitations, as there is limited space on the CPLD, and unfortunately not enough to implement both features. In addition to this, the input display feature will also only be available for one of the two inputs (either N64 or GameCube).

How To Upgrade:

I initially tried to add an additional reward for this option, however it appears as though Kickstarter does not let backers select multiple rewards. This is quite inconvenient, since adding an entirely new reward would allow more than 20 people to opt for an adapter... which I do not want at this stage.

Since this is the case, please ignore the new reward option, and I will instead sort through each backer manually once the campaign finishes. If you want this feature, you don't need to change your reward option, but simply increase your pledge amount by £5. In other words, if you have pledged enough for both rewards, and selected the original £25 adapter reward option, you will receive an adapter with dual inputs at the end of the campaign.

By default, the input display feature will show the inputs for the Nintendo 64 controller. If you want it to instead show the inputs from the GameCube controller, please let me know via a direct message on Kickstarter! If you aren't bothered either way, or already want it to show the Nintendo 64 controller inputs, you do not need to message me.

Sorry about the confusion! And if you don't want dual inputs, then you don't need to change anything. You will still receive the original adapter with the Nintendo 64 controller input.
