Right now, I have a modded Sega Controller with a passthru connected to port 1 in the Colecovision.  I do want to get a modded SNES keypad thingy for it.  I'm a bit paranoid if I keep unplugging the controller port, I may somehow break that IC chip. So Sega modded controller with passthru with the ball-knob'd controller stay in that port.


Easy way to avoid wear and tear on the controller port.. Leave an extension cable plugged in at all times. You'll only be putting wear on the extension. A Sega Genesis extension cable (Sega or Super Cable brand are both heavy duty) and work perfect, just as long as it's 9 pins/wires, wired all the way through. ;)

I have an Atari Flashback 2 controller that is wonky. I may remove the upper most stick part  and remove the threaded screw-in part on the bottom of the stick and krazy-glue this to the top of a standard CV controller stick, just out of curiosity. The threaded part is stuck in like a mother, so will probably require saw and sandpaper.

I for one hated the original controllers and would love to never use them again.

 

I did buy the NTT Grips controller and it was great!

 

I would go with a Genesis / SNES type controller with either separate or attachable keypads.

Arcade control panel please.  :)  Maybe something similar to the NES Advantage with a numeric pad on it.  I never owner the NES Advantage stick but did use it a few times and liked it. 

 

I used to have the Super Action Controllers and they worked great!  Mainly because the stick had a solid metal shaft and the ball top was just like an arcade controller.  Plus the additional buttons came in handy for some games.

 

Here's a request not yet made... how about wireless controllers?  Not sure how this could work on the Colecovision but I hate having cords all over the place.  lol  One can dream... :)

I personally hate the wireless controllers.  Sick and tired of having to recharge them all the time and then one day, it dies immediately after recharging.  I prefer something  that if undamaged works forever.

Colecovision controls on many games are stiff unlike the arcade controls..   Maybe that's cause I am using Yurkie modded controllers and not original ones.

How about this ... an arcade like controller where you can detach the main stick and two buttons as a small hand- held unit somewhere in size around Atari or SMS control stick.

If creating an arcade controller, just make sure it has switchable gates, 4 to 8 way.. Like a Mag - Stik. Otherwise a Super Nintendo like game pad would be awesome, like the Fc data controller.

^^this, especially with gate switch accessible on the outside. My only switchable is a mad catz Soul Calibur IV fight stick that you have to open up to switch. Pac-man sucks with 8-way.
