I’ve done some searching on this blog and can’t seem to find a definitive answer if this is possible or not. If there’s a thread with this answer, feel free to just link me there so I can take a look!
Basically, I know that N64 and MAME games recognize my 3rd and 4th controllers because those systems had 4 player support native to the system (i.e. N64 had 4 ports and arcade cabinets had 4 joysticks). However, I can’t get NES, SNES, or Genesis games to work.
I know these systems required multitaps, which seems to be the hangup since the emulators don’t have that support. My question is: is there a way to get this to work?
I have noticed that at least in the NES game i specifically checked (Bomberman 2), it recognizes a 3rd controller, but the controller doesn’t work. I would have chalked it up as not working at all if Bomberman hadn’t recognized the 3rd controller being plugged in, but since it did I’m wondering if there’s just something I haven’t config’d properly?
