Hi everybody, I'm making an 8 bit style game that uses a NES gamepad as the only input. Its going to be an art project.
Like the title states, how do I make a interface that looks and works like the one in NES games where you use the directional pad to pick letters to create a name? and later use that name in a "gameover" frame.
Although there isn't just the one way that console games let you input names i guess you want it so that pressing up or down (or left and right) moves through the characters, pressing one button places a character and the other button deletes the character.

SNES, Playstation, Mega Drive... Heck, even the most modern consoles (with a regular controller) still use this kind of input system.
Thanks alot Mr. Waffle! i really apreciate it! its just what I need. I'll try to decipher how it works, it looks complicated.
I'm just using a nes controller with the retro usb kit from http://www.retrousb.com/index.php?categoryID=81
I play nes roms in my pc so the nes controller makes it more authentic i guess.
I'm chuffed just using a Wii controller with my PC so I don't want one of them NES adapters. Still think they're pretty ace especially considering most older Click games only had a D-pad and 2 buttons.
Reet now though I want an N64 controller adapter for Wii. CC and Cube controller don't cut it!
