  1. Im not sure what happened to my reply to this. The price drop most likely has to do with not only getting rid of old stock but making some more money to make the c64 full size. Sales wont be hard. In Europe/uk and australia pre orders are flying off the shelves. I follow several facebook groups for the mini and full size and there is no shortage of buyers. It has an option to choose 50khz and 60khz so they are universal. I will buy one here in the us as soon as possible.
  2. Look in the full size c64 thread. I posted on what to install in linux so you could get the guid and id. Then you could add your ps2 adapter to the gamecontrollerdb.txt.
  3. Cant edit last post. Its an sdl2 gamecontrollerdb.txt. I posted in the c64 full size thread on how to install the stuff to be able to get the linux guid and id.
  4. Here is the link for being able to get the guid and id. Only do whats in the reply post marked as 2 https://askubuntu.com/questions/366994/how-to-identify-game-controller-for-sdl2-in-ubuntu Then this is what you type in terminal to get the info when you have your joystick plugged in: ./sdl2-joystick
  5. I quite thoroughly enjoy the mini. I have the main screen filled with 150 games and all of the games i have are on a usb drive and no complaints. I plan on buying the full size when it comes out. I love the classic systems that come out and also making my own with raspberry pi’s and what not. But personally i will never go back to actually running old technology. And just running the emulator on a pc just doesnt do it for me anymore.
  6. The mini uses an sdl gamecontrollerdb.txt to decide what controllers work or not. They dont just work. Just the usb hid means nothing on the mini. It was a pain to find everything i needed to make a raspberry pi able to give me the linux guid # of the controllers. You need that and the controller id plus all the controls added to the gamecontrollerdbtxt, which you have to go through all the hack crap to be able to access and modify that file.
  7. You need the ps2 controller to usb only adapters. Without a guid setup for the adapter you have it will never work on the mini.
  8. You never have to turn it off to swap controllers. Except for ps3 controllers cause those are completely whack on thec64 mini.
  9. Are your controllers official ones? Bootlegs and aftermarkets arent in the gamecontrollerdb.txt. Controller have to be plugged in. I tested with both a ps2 adapter and ps3 controllers. Both are detected fine. Ps2 controller with adapter works good as long as you dont press the analog button. What ps2 adapter are you using?
  10. Not sure about the ps4 controller but the ps3 controller has a lot of issues and not worth using.
  11. Now the these are only $29.99 you should really consider getting one. It was what finally sold me. And i have no regrets.
  12. https://www.thec64minizone.com/cjm-configuration-file-tool/
  13. So in a .tsg file and a .cjm, here is the button layout. this is different than the layout for the original joystick in the manual. i will get on my computer and post a link to the cjm configuration tool. J1 (*) / 2 (*): JU, JD, JL, JR, LEFT trigger, RIGHT trigger, Y, X, Left bumper, A, B, SELECT, Right bumper
  14. Well if you do get one and want any help just give me a call. Or text. Or pm. Or carrier pigeon. Or however else you feel like contacting me. 😁
  15. What is up my friend? Nice to see you wander on over here.
  16. No you cannot. Just like the c64 they have had so much removed from linux and no internet access at all makes it impossible.
  17. You cant use windows to get the guid. Windows has their own guid’s. So does os x and android. You need linux ones. I can instruct you how to do it if you have a linux system. I use a raspberry pi with retropie on it.
  18. Please stop downloading the file on page 6. It is no good. Please download the one on page 7.
  19. let me look at the stuff needed to be installed to get guid and stuff
  20. That controller is probably going to need a config made for it to work. You need to be able to get the linux guid number and the exact name linux sees the controller as. Do you happen to have a raspberry pi with retropie?
  21. Ps1 and ps2 controllers have an analog button on them. Dont press it on when using on thec64.
  22. The analog stick is an issue on ps1/2 controllers. If you turn on the analogs, the dpad no longer works and the analog stick has a huge deadzone. Ps3 controllers after a short while the analog stick and dpad get all screwed up. Removing the analog settings for ps3 controllers in the gamecontrollerdb.txt fixes the issue. You will need to furthe elaborate your issue with your controllers.
  23. Also, the button layout is setup like an xbox controller. Right bumper and x are your normal standard joystick fire button. You can create separate.cjm files to configure the controls per game. You can also create a universal one that sits on the root of your usb that is used on any game without their own .cjm file. If you want me to create a universal one for you, tell me how you want the controls setup. I like to add escape, spacebar and f1 to the controller. Start is always the menu button and right bumper is alway a joystick fire/menu accept button.
  24. Yes i fixed all of the ps3 controllers in the gamecontrollerdb.txt i have 2 official ps3 controllers with different guid numbers so i could verify it was problematic with all of them. The analogs no longer work but that had to be done to make them work properly. Edit: also ps2 and ps1 should be fine as long as you leave the analogs turned off.
  25. Not feeling like reading all 3 complete pages of stuff, they have stated there are 4 usb ports, 3 modes, vic20 basic, c64 basic, and c64 gamelist menu. Easy multi-disk. Also the joystick is micro switched. I am working with them to add quite a few more controllers to the compatibility list so that should hopefully help quite a few people out with using other controllers.
