I remember the ColecoVision Adam of a friend. Big as an IBM PC but looks like a tapedeck (2 tape drives in the front). It took like foreve...

Re: USB C64 Joystick adapter (for emulator)

Just use the flash utility to reprogram as desired. Here is the compatibility list: •Atari 2600 Joystick •Atari 7800 Joystick (2 butto...

Re: USB C64 Joystick adapter (for emulator)

Prototype underway. I'll do a spinoff of my existing product. Modifications are required and generating a valid USB signal to be recognized by a USB joystick is pretty puzzling. Good thing I've got that 100MHz, 32 channel Oscilloscope!
I'll post technical stuff later on for interested minds! ;)

Re: USB C64 Joystick adapter (for emulator)

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, AMIGA machines. Just write in th...

Re: USB C64 Joystick adapter (for emulator)

Looking at it, I think you must need rose-tint specs to get the best of it. After riding the great control of the Playstation pads or solid PC joystick, the old ones can be mediocre in comparison. Or just plain bad. Those Cheetahs could be so atrocious and unresponsive, I can't believe it's an icon...

Tried it with MAME and with WinVICE, and it's just so nice to be able to use a proper competition pro for most games, and the adjustable stick of the Cruiser for the likes of Track and Fie...
