Key points

Requires adapter to connect to PC.
Lacks native XInput support, requiring the use of a XInput wrapper (see XInput wrappers) for games that do not support DirectInput or the controller natively.

Use with PC platforms


XInput wrapping

Acting as native DirectInput controller, it's possible to use any of the generic wrappers. See the controller article for those.


Mayflash N64 Controller Adapter

Directly compatible with PC. No driver needed, just plug and play.
Two players can play simultaneously.
Compatible with PS3 console.
No extra power supply required.

USB N64 RetroPort

Works with authentic Nintendo controllers. Many common third party controllers have been tested working but are not officially supported.
Beta "N64 Tool" allows test Rumble Paks and upload/download save files on Controller Paks.
No drivers to install or update.

Bliss-Box Gamer-Pro

Directly compatible with PC. No driver needed, just plug and play.


Can be recognized as Xbox 360 controller but after manual assignment. Controller cannot be found in Supported Controller Database, so Steam recognizes it as standard DirectInput device.

Steam Link compatibility

Works partially over Mayflash N64 Controller Adapter.[1]
Works without any drivers on any operating system that supports Steam.
Can be used just to send input from a controller to a PC. Go into Streaming options, hit 𝗖 and disable video and audio streaming.
Won't work great unless you connect it to LAN or a low latency Wi-Fi.

Support In Games
