Controller lag, framerate troubles, and bad button layouts plague Switch Online’s Expansion Pack
The control scemes are terrible. At the very least, bind A and B to R and L. Then make the face buttons the C buttons. Or, just let us customize them in the N64 app.
You can remap the controls in the Switch settings easily.
Yes, but that changes it system wide, then you have to change them every time you play another game. That's not really a solution.
Lol I’ll never buy or subscribe to something like this. Only pigeons do
That's how Nintendo will get people to buy their overpriced N64 controller lol. That layout makes absolutely no sense.
Not me. I'm not even subbing to NSO.
"At the very least, bind A and B to R and L." What the fuck? How does that make any sense at all? O_o
It's not perfect, but at least every button would be bound without needing to hold a trigger to press something. The current layout is terrible.
No need for triggers at all. The right stick is the C button, same as it was for N64 Zelda’s on Gamecube. Worked great then, works great now.
The default mapping is fine. A and B are (shocker) A and B, and the right analog are the c buttons (you know, the thing that controls camera movement in modern games?), since c-buttons stand for camera-buttons.
“Y’ar, thar she blows!”
Never saw this coming. I thought that the games would run perfectly at 60 fps and internally rendered at 2400p
The online mode is unplayable lag even makes the audio stutter
Do you actually own this? Or just talking trash?
I saw multiple livestreams at launch were people playd with Ethernet connection and friends in the same area, its like the soundtrack turns into nightcore i personaly dont need the Expansion pack i got an nvidia shield tv hihi
it's really sad how often 1 guy with no funding can do better and release it for free 20 years ago.....
Be better, Nintendo - where's that passion gone?
It's just... gone
They still don't have voice chat lol
what are you talking about?? the passion is still there, higher as ever! the passion to nickel and dime their fanbase to dry with the least amount of effort possible, that is!
Their products print money, so they have no reason to try very hard, and even less reason to listen to criticism (as apologist trolls are quick to point out). That’s just how Nintendo is now. In any case, they could probably sell “Yoshi turds” and charge $100 for them, and someone would probably buy them, so of course their egos are inflated.
Premium service is handled in a subpar manner
err...for them to encounter these problems, they have to pay for it first, right?? Nintendo already have your money, they don't care! all they gonna say is "stop complaining! be greatful that we are giving you the chance to play these games in coop and also using (our spectacular) online service on the Switch." while laughing their bum off on the way to the bank.
Dreamcast SegaNet > Switch Expansion Pack
Nintendo stock droppin like a hot turd right now. OLED madness now this misstep, Switch is losing it's luster fast. Switch 2 next year is a must now with all these missteps.
Why is it nintendo keeps changing the b and a buttons form their literal location on the controllers. They did it on the 3ds with its games and the switch online games all need to be fixed! Was the button action not the same in japan and this is the results of them forcing us to use an alternate setup for years and now they are just like. Jokes on you, you've been playing wrong the whole time? I just don't understand in any way this choice. Input lag is on thing but changing the button layout on purpose seems like a very on purpose screw you to the players.
Mario Kart 64 runs so bad compared to the original. I have Mario Kart 64 running side by side on the N64 and it seems to be running differently as I can't seem to be able to drift the same on the Switch version, it also doesn't seem to register the right bumper sometimes so I can start the drifting mechanic to boost my speed, this will mean I end up turning the opposite direction on a corner going off track because the drifting mechanic didn't start.
Low effort Nintendo, how can you screw this up?
The cost was enough for me
I feel I literally was kicked in the nuts and then someone went in my pocket and told 50 bucks from me after I bought this stupid expansion pack. I’ve legit played streets of rage 2 from sega more than any of these 64 games
