Logitech F310 Gamepad Compatibility for Retro Gaming

So, I'm looking to get into retro gaming, and my weapons of choice include Batocera Linux and a Logitech F310 Gamepad.

 

It doesn't have a select button, but has a back button in it's place. Will it be configurable as select/hotkey in batocera?

 

Another question, overall, do you guys recommend this controller? Reviews on Amazon are extremely positive. Have any of you used it? What are your thoughts?

Attention is what makes life meaningful.

Also, please quote me for a reply. 🙂

Its a boring old Logitech controller. It gets the job done and better than knock off dual shocks. And afaik, the back button is gonna be a select key in emulators but you can rebind it in Logitech Gaming Software if you are on windows.

Aight, thanks for your reply. Honestly I don't have a lot of controller choices in India. A genuine xbox controller is outta my budget, and the knock off's have so many bad reviews on Amazon and other e-commerce sites. I guess as long as it does the job I'm okay. Thanks again.

It supports XInput after flip of the switch. So anything that has default key mapping for Xbox controllers will work.
With Logitechs drivers and other software, you can tweak bindings even further.

Ah. Well, actually, after using XBox Series X/S controller, it is probably way better than than F310. My F310 died (the dongle, not the gamepad) and now it is a glorified paper weight. Also, after close to 2 years of usage, the rubber became sticky. Rumble (or vibration) is weak. LT and RT are very stiff. Too bad your budget is restricting you, otherwise I would strongly recommend the XBox Series X/S controller.

 

XBox can use Bluetooth, the dedicated wireless dongle, or cable, means that if one is not really working, you can use other method. I actually use it in many devices including smart phone and laptops through Bluetooth (I have to re-pair them if I switch devices). As for desktop, I used cable (cheap USB-C to USB-A cable that support USB 2.0 interface will work).

I apologies if my comments or post offends you in any way, or if my rage got a little too far. I'll try my best to make my post as non-offensive as much as possible.

Wow that sounds really convenient, I'll sure buy one after I get my first paycheck. I'm still a student.
