Retrolink Controller

Is there any way to set up a retrolink controller up to laptop to complete this nostalgic trip of mine?

I got curios about an old school controller with a usb attachment to hook up into my laptop. So naturally I googled it and came up with a retrolink controller that was exactly what I was looking for. My question to the retro uprising community is are these controllers compatible with your progam?

Posting link below to be as accurate as possible.

As a new member I have really loved my trip down memory lane. What a blast from the past! Played a few games so far and I am really impressed.

Thank you Retro Uprising community

Good cheap controller

Feels heavy and reliable. Doesn't feel cheap.

They are still very clicky, but they require a very hard press to register an input. Forget about playing any game that requires fast repeated button presses.

So yes, they do work, but they are terrible controllers. I definitely will not be buying another one.

This is probably a better option USB NES RetroPort - retroUSB
