Title: 8BitDo Retro Receiver and Bluetooth Controller (in-game reset?)
Post by: munnlete on May 14, 2016, 07:33 PM
I know the Retro Receiver was just released (and mine hasn't arrived yet), but if anyone has any experience using it with the Everdrive N8, any thoughts?    Also, would there be any way to program this to do an in-game reset for the N8?

I use a Wemo switch to turn a lot of my Everdrive systems on and off for changing games. So you just have your phone app, reset and play a different game. It is possible to mod the NES system to have a button reset but takes a bit of work to make that happen.

I was thinking of doing this. Wouldn't this be bad for the hardware though ?

I'm assuming the Wemo switch only simulates a power off and not a reset?  That would affect saving of FDS games then I assume.

I have the 8BitDo Retro Receiver and the 8BitDo FC30 Pro. This won't help everyone else, but on my Analogue NT I set Select + Right to do a short reset, and Select + Start + Right to do a long reset. Something integrated into the cart would be nice.

Oh, and both the 8BitDo Retro Receiver and FC30 work very well. No added input lag, from what I can tell.
