Everything you will ever need for the VCS/2600 homebrews can be found on my List : https://1drv.ms/x/s!...VbQayev1Wc1QprN

 

Wow, that is very comprehensive. Good job! :thumbsup:

This thread really underscores the need to collaborate on a controller design to remove the controller constraints on the homebrewers.

 

A decent joystick. 2 or three action buttons (no more), a trac ball and a paddle and/or spinner could be incorporated into a two plug cable for the VCS all the while being uncluttered and affordable.  I'd love to manufacture them. 

 

If I build it, will they come?

Sounds cool! Now if it looks cool and is under $100, I'm pretty sure it will be a hit.

As a parts kit with assembly instructions, it could probably be around $100. A cheaper version could require the user to provide their own housing, cables, and fasteners, for example.
