http://assemblergames.com/l/threads/any-solution-for-n64-analog-sticks.37361/ I didn't want to bump this thread from the dark ages but I think it needs an update. I just watched about 45 mins of YouTube videos (god help me) and there are a ton of conflicting reports. Also lots of annoying people with Youtube channels these days... Seems like these are the options: Replacement Gamecube-style joystick Replacement N64-style joystick Raphnet GameCube to N64 Adapter Does anyone here have experience with both of the replacement joysticks? I'd trust a mature forum member's word much more than some bumbling youtube idiot's... Also it seems like every review has experience with one but not the other. I think the GC adapter would obviously be best if you don't care about using original hardware or any of the accessories like Transfer Pak etc. But I'm wondering, if you needed to use an N64 controller, if it's better to get the modified GameCube-style joystick or the original N64 one. I know the N64 controller and the joystick in particular gets a lot of hate but I don't remember them being that bad. But the GC controller is my favorite of all time, and using a knockoff GC analog stick seems like a big upgrade for the N64. My 4 N64 controllers have seen better days. I frequently play Mario Kart, Smash, Mario Party 1-2-3 with a full house so I'd like to get some good replacements. I do have GC controllers in good condition (and they're still available new) but I also use Save and Transfer Paks quite often... Thoughts? Suggestions? Edit: ah crap I forgot to add a poll. darn.
