    Does anyone know if there is a webpage that will show me schematics, and have drivers that will work with Windows XP, for connecting an SNES controller to my computer.

    I did a search on Google, but most of the sites I found simply tried to blind me with their oh so bright colors.

    I don't use my SNES, since I can just play the ROMs on my computer, and I don't have a controller for my computer and I'm bored, this way I can kill 2 birds with one stone.

    This isn't exactly what you're looking for, but its in the same kind of area, so what the hell. Check out ALLTECHBOX for a handy guide on connecting PSX pads to your pc, including drivers for dual shock pads !! Now if I only had a soldering iron...

    anyone have anything in English?
    Babelfishing these pages makes it confusing, and I don't want to screw it up.

    avsdotcom, the link you gave me is for a Playstation controller, I'm looking for a guide to do this for a Super Nintendo Controller, which will have much different connectins, but thanks anyways.

    Hey thanks for that I never knew they existed bit of a newbie to pc's - give up on trying to play ROMS with keyboard way to hard & I'm not right impressed with PC pads (prefer a simple cross hair pad) PS1 to my PC = perfect CHEERS ;)

    yeah, i simply don't play my emulated games cuz the keyboard is just annoying (imagine trying to play street fighter 2) and both pc controller pads i have just blow. i'm not going to go out and buy a 3rd when my ps2 controller would be absolutely perfect. especially for racing games since i lack a wheel.

    if someone finds a link or two to places where a usb adapter can be bought, please post it here.
