    Default Re: USB atari compatible joystick adapter

    Since I've started june 2012, I shipped a bit more than 500 USB joystick adapters!!!

    I want to thank everyone out there that encouraged my project!!!

    I'm now working on several other projects;

    - RGB to YPbPr adapter (Amiga DB-23 video adapter for modern TV)
    - PlipBox spinoff (Parallel Amiga Network adapter)
    - NES/SNES controller USB adapter
    - Arcade USB joystick adapter (for MAME cabinet integration)
    - Paddles USB adapter

    Anyone interested?

    Hi there,
    I'm just doing a little poll here.

    I've been ask by a growing number of members that if I could build an opposite device; USB Joystick to DB9 compatible adapter.
    That would enable current gaming joysticks/pads to work with original hardware like ATARI, C64, COMMODORE machines.

    Just write in this tread if you would be in or out for a product like this.

    Thanks!!

    Greetings,

    I started a prototype. I'm having weird issues generating a valid USB signal recognized by my Saitek pads.

    Good thing I have this 100MHz oscilloscope with 32 logic channels!

    I'll post my schematic soon so experts out there can appreciate!



    Ciao!

    Hey Guys! This is it.

    I just received the first batch of USB Joystick adapters, PCB version 3.0.
    This new version is supporting virtually any DB9 joystick ever made!
    Just use the flash utility to reprogram as desired.

    Here is the compatibility list:


    •Atari 2600 Joystick
    •Atari 7800 Joystick (2 buttons)
    •Atari analog Paddle (2 controllers)
    •Atari video touch pad Keyboard
    •Amstrad Joystick
    •Amiga Joystick (up to 3 buttons)
    •Amiga Mouse (up to 3 buttons)
    •Commodore 64 Joystick
    •Commodore CD32 Joypad (7 buttons)
    •Coleco Vision Controller
    •Intellivision Touch pad (16 buttons)
    •MSX Joystick
    •Sega Genesis Joypad (3 and 6 buttons)
    •Sega Master System Joypad (2 buttons)
    •3DO Joypad

    This new hardware version was designed with compatibility in mind. Every pin is reconfigurable so new firmware can be built to support much more devices.
    Design will stay open source so anybody out there can contribute to this quest for retro gaming pleasure!

    Cheers!

    Nitz
