    Hello, I am having a problem with an original N64 grey controller and a boom n64 and psx adapter, and getting them to work with Project 64. I asked about this on the Project 64 forums, as well as the Emulator-Zone forums, but I haven't much help, so I came here. This is my post on the Project 64 forums:




    To sum all this up, if I move the n64 joystick in any way that alters the y axis, it will also detect the opposite input every other frame, causing stuttering when waking forward, backward and diagonal in games like Mario 64 or OoT, but moving left and right and pressing all of the buttons on the controller work perfectly. I'm not sure whether or not the controller doesn't work (it's stick is tight and the controller is in great shape though) or it's just not compatible with my brand of adapter, which has a history of not being compatible with certain controllers. Can someone please help me? Thanks.

    "Would buying the Mayflash one work?"

    The mayflash adapter has issues with certain controllers as well.

    It's an original NUS-005 Grey N64 controller from Nintendo.

    Try to use a different controller plugin ?
    If I remember well there are 4 - 5 plugins out there, I think one working good for me was rage, also jabo's direct x or something, I forgot almost all about it.

    But what I'd recommend to you, is going to the PJ64 site or forums and look for downloadable controller plugins and try them all.

    Assuming that there is nothing wrong with your N64 controller or adapter.
    I never heard of that adapter that you mention actually, what is it ? A double adapter ? You plugin the N64adapter into the psx usb adapter or something ? That might be the problem.

    EDIT:

    I use this and it works flawlessly with my PC:

    I use the Boom N64 and PSX adapter. I have tried multiple plugins, specifically jabo and all the different versions of N-Rage. I don't think it's a plugin issue. In the windows gamepad configuration, when I move either up down, alternates between inputting the position my stick is at, and a bit lower, causing jerky walking in-game. This is the thing I use:
