Has anyone tested these Y-cables with "keypadless" two-button controllers, like the Atari 7800 controller, the Questar or the Fire Command II? I could be interested in buying a few, but only if I can be sure they're going to work with my third-party controllers.

Why not make it a pack-in cable with every copy, while you're at it? :P

They are essentially a straight through design (both male ends of the cable - where the controllers plug in - merge into the one female plug end).  So it's the same as plugging a controller directly in, or plugging a controller into an extension cable.

 

As to whether or not they work with other controllers with 2 buttons... I'm not familair with the Questar or the Fire Command II, but if the controller supports two buttons on it's own (like a modded Genesis controller, for example), then there's no reason it wouldn't work with one of these Y-adapters.  I have tested numerous Atari-compatible joysticks with it, including a 7800 Proline controller, and they all worked.  The Proline allows you to use both buttons too; just as if it were plugged in by itself.

Quick update...

 

I have the supply cables / parts in.  I'm currently on vacation, but will be making more cables and following up with people on the waiting list next week.

 

Thanks!

I just PM'ed everyone that posted in the thread about wanting more cables.  I'm currently making them, so if you still want some and haven't heard from me yet, send me a PM!

 

Thanks.

Hey nurmix!

I'd like to order a Y cable. Just heard about these from a past episode of the Intellivisionaries. Black tubing if available, otherwise whatever you got.

I assume you'll PM the details? Otherwise let me know what you need from me (besides payment lol).

Thanks!
