I made this a while back and thought that some here would appreciate seeing it. It worked out pretty well. The Jaguar controller has all the buttons the stock 5200 controller has. The attached Paddle controllers are to center the horizontal and vertical adjustment, so the horizontal one also works well as a Super Breakout and Pole Position controller. What do you think?

I think the same as I always do. Torn between being absolutely impressed at the ingenuity and technical prowess you used in creating such a thing...
And hating your guts for the same reasons.

Seriously. Awesome. I'm not gonna lie, I've never felt the need for anything other than the stock controllers (ok, except for Gorf!) but the squishy fire buttons always were a major downer. Still, I wish I had the know-how to do something like this. Most impressive!

I was wondering if the Jaguar DB-9 adapter sold by Best Electronics, coupled with the Master Play, would allow me to use my Jaguar controller with my 5200. Has anyone tried this? If so, do all the Jaguar numeric pad keys register on the 5200?

Do you have any instructions on how to do this? Like the idea of using a jagpad with my 5200's :)
