Connecting official N64 controllers to Retrode 2
« on: 10/Aug/2018 08:49:46 PM »
Hi all,

Hope you can help. I have got a Retrode 2 which I want to connect my official N64 controllers in order to play my N64 games. I have purchased the N64 plugin for the Retrode 2 but cannot find any ports to support the N64 controllers on the N64 plugin. I thought there were ports on the N64 plugin to support N64 controllers? Is there any other way in order for me to connect my N64 controllers to my Retrode 2? Your help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,

RocknRollTim

You can get an N64 controller extension cable and cut it.  Solder the wires to the plugin PCB.  You'll need to also solder 220R resistors onto the board.
