    Question about Using Microsoft 360 controllers for 2 players via emulators on t100.

    I'm currently playing some N64 games via emulators using my USB wired Xbox 360 controller. Here's the question. If I bought an additional wireless Xbox 360 controller, would I be able to play 2 player games on it with a friend (one wired, one wireless Xbox 360)? Just asking because amazon just posted the wireless controller on the cheap today.

    And have any of you tried to play games using an HDMI plug from t100 to your TV?

    Newb of sorts trying some different gaming configurations via my t100 and would love some tips/insights on these two possibilities. Thanks for any replies ahead of time.

    This should work perfectly, can't say for sure about your controller question.

    The HDMI should work fine.

    As for your controller, I'm not so sure.

    Connecting wireless Xbox 360 controllers requires a USB bluetooth adapter, and you already have a USB controller plugged into your USB port, meaning you'd need 2 USB ports to power the adapter and the wired controller, which the T100 doesn't have.

    If you have a PS3 or PS4 controller, I suggest you use a program like MotionInJoy, connect the controller via USB to your T100, pair it via the T100's bluetooth and then proceed to run it wirelessly, as this doesn't require a USB port, leaving it open for your wired 360 pad.

    The only other option besides (which I don't recommend) is using a USB 2.0 hub plugged into your USB 3.0 port on your T100 (if it's the model with the USB 3.0). I can't recommend it though, as it's possible the T100's USB 3 port doesn't reach the maximum amperage of a USB 3 port and may not provide enough power to run both the adapter and controller. The port would have to run at 900mA to pull it off, and not all USB 3.0 ports will run at that, especially in laptops/netbooks.

    Thank you, Jenraux and RichScheller. I just got an HDMI today so i'll try it when i get home. Will look into MotionInJoy as well. I have a bluetooth moga pro that I may try as well. Heard they work minus the triggers which should be fine for the type of gaming I want to use the T100 for (SNES and N64 emulation)

    Thanks again!!!
