Cleaning out Controller Ports

Post by Safety in Nimbus » Sat Mar 03, 2007 7:54 pm

I just moved across town and somehow I got sap and some other gunk in my Dreamcast controller ports and the plugs on the controller themselves. Any ideas on how to clean this properly? My DC is having an extremely difficult time recognizing any controller :(

Try rubbing alcohol. That's what I would use, but I suppose someone will say that is a horrible idea.
