Retro on my PC via USB Help !!

This Old Technopeasant needs a suggestion or two for "something" that will allow me to play some of these games on my PC via usb. Crowns Golf, Defenders, Outrun and Punch-Out are some I remember fondly. Crowns Golf and Crowns Golf Hawaii arcade games used a center bat style controller for length of swing that I just can't seem to control on this site using my keyboard. This makes the old admiral very sad as it was the only game I was unbeatable at and I like winning every once in a while even if it's only beating myself

Re: Retro on my PC via USB Help !!

Hey there Admiral, to be clear, are you saying you have a USB controller that you would like to use? If that is the case, make sure it is plugged in, load the game, and hit the TAB key. The rest is pretty self explanatory.

I have nothing! Looking for a decent controller option or two, nothing too too expensive.

Re: Retro on my PC via USB Help !!

How's 15 bucks sound? Usually at Wal-mart or Target or K-mart or whatever you have carries a Philips brand USB Retractable controller for about 14.99 and if not Philips, then some other brand. It most closely resembles a PS/PS2 controller if you're comfortable with that.

If not that, then you can also use an Xbox wired controller if you happen to have one of those around. Or a PS3 controller hooked up to the controller via USB. There's a multitude of options available for ya!
