If anyone has experience with external game controllers for Atari, Nintendo and other emulators (particularly Wii), and you can tell me your experience, I'd appreciate it.
I'm looking for three controllers -
For Dolphin Emulator / Wii, I understand you can use a USB connected Mayflash W010 Wireless Sensor DolphinBar with an OEM Wii controller. This was made for PC's but there were suggestions it will work with Android.
My tablet is a Galaxy Tab S4 running Pie
For Atari 2600 using Atari2600EMU, I'm looking for a wired USB or Bluetooth joystick. The only one I see on Amazon, a Retro-Bit USB joystick has very poor reviews on Amazon. 50% of the reviews are one star. A paddle controller might be nice too.
For SNES, GBA, GBC, N64, using a hodgepodge of emulators including Mupen64plus, John GBAC, John NESS, My Boy, and Classic Boy, I'm looking for one controller which will work for all. On my potential list is a SteelSeries Stratus XL, an 8Bitdo SN30 Pro, and an 8Bitdo SF30 Pro. All are in the $30 to $40 range; I'm leaning to one of the 8Bitdo remotes because they look more like old school Nintendo remotes.
I was impressed by the Dolphin Emulator. They made note that on some Android systems the video encoding would be slow and choppy. Outside of crappy on-screen controls, I didn't notice significant lag/drag to the video. The other systems' emulators I've tried seem to function well, aside from the awkwardness of on-screen controls.
So is anyone running emulators on a Tab S4? What tips and tricks can you give? Any deeper insights to controllers? Are there other games you run that are enhanced with a game controller? Are there emulators you like best? Why?
