Sega Master System (SMS), Sega Genesis and Atari 2600 to Intellivision controller adapter

 

SMS and Genesis support 2 button operation, 3 if you count pressing both action buttons at same time to activate (Intv) lower right action button.  Ideally adapter is for use with games that normally use one or two action buttons.  Atari 2600 controller supports 1 button.  Adapter supports 4-way and 8-way controllers.  Adapter does not support 16 directions.

 

20 19 18 17 16 15 units for sale in 3 months.  If you want one, pre-order in this thread.

 

Price is $73If I can get pre-orders to qty 20, then price will be $63 + shipping.  You don't pay until its ready to ship.  Please only pre-order if you really want one.  I'm not likely to sell much more than 20, so if you want one its best to pre-order vs. waiting until they are sold out.

 

$7 shipping in US

$12 shipping to Canada

 

Comes in Intv 2 (Gray) or Sears (Almond) or Black color.  Picture of Gray color below.

 

Does not come with power adapter.  Designed to be use with:

 

1) Sega brand Genesis DC power adapter

or

2) VEL05US090-US-JA  <-- Digikey

 

http://www.digikey.com/short/3wzzmr

 

Tested with the following digital controllers.

2600 controller

Sega brand 3 and 6 button Genesis controller.

Sega brand SMS controller

If controller (buttons B and C) have rapid fire, then you still have rapid fire when playing on Intellivision.  Rapid Fire being effective is still based on the game being played.

 

Features:

Front DB9 port for Sega/A2600 controller

Inverted Rear DB9 port for Sears/Intv2 controller (KEYPAD)

Rear DB9 cable connects to Sears/Intv2 console, 15 inches long.  Can be made up to 65 inches long upon request.

DC power jack in rear. 

Front mount red power led

Front mount push on, push off power button

Custom designed sticker on bottom, made by person on AA who makes all the stickers I use

 

Sega Genesis Button Mapping:

Sega Genesis B button = Intellivision Top Left/Right Action button

Sega Genesis C button = Intellivision Bottom Left Action button

Sega Genesis B+C at the same time = Intellivision Bottom Right Action button

 

SMS Button Mapping:

SMS button 1 = Intellivision Top Left/Right Action button

SMS button 2 = Intellivision Bottom Left Action button

SMS 1 and 2 at the same time = Intellivision Bottom Right Action button

 

Atari 2600 Button Mapping:

Atari 2600 action button = Intellivision Top Left/Right Action button

Very cool. I'd like to say I'm interested in one but I still use your Intv arcade controller design religiously, so I'm not sure if I'll truly need this or not. Of course if I have the extra money to get one, I would. :)

Could I just put a power jack on the front of the console to power it instead of using an adapter? I remember you did something similar on an Inty II when you first made your arcade controller, although that jack might have been 5vdc and this requires 9v dc. Just thinking out loud.. I can't remember what all voltages are available off hand to tap off of from inside the console.

Also on case color, when you say yellow, do you mean a cream color like the SVA is?

fixed the Color names.

 

Almond color is very much like Sears model.

 

Its best to use the power adapter I recommend.

Ok thanks. I'd just like to think about it a little but probably will pick one up in the almond color to match the Sears system which is what I predominantly use.
Thanks.

If this was around when I had an Intellivision I'd still own it today. Where was this 6 years ago!?

Recovering from surgery.  Will most likely be fall now.  Looks like I'll end up making 5 as there is very low interest.

I've had worse luck this year.  Had second major surgery a couple of weeks ago.  I'm still looking to do this project, however it needs to be delayed to Early 2018.

 

Sorry for the delay.

Thanks for the update, grips!  Take care of yourself and get better - that's obviously the most important thing.
