Would the rotary controller-modded Jag controller work with this adapter (for Tempest)?

It depends on if it works with Jaguar games in general or if special coding was required in a game to make use of it.

I'm most interested in using a fight stick with my old digital systems.  So maybe I COULD one if there were a fight stick for Jaguar.    I know I COULD have a fight stick with switchable PCB pad hacks.    Would it be easier to pad-hack a Jaguar controller and let that device convert to digital than it would be to manually wire a 5200 controller to actuate for digital games.   I'd rather see a PS2-> 5200 pad hack, because PS2 is a popular format for adapters from ToToTek and other companies to convert to other arcade stick standards.  But the addition of the keypad is tricky, because it's not one-pin-one-button.

 

Also the buttons are reversed fro a stick ssuer's perspective>  Since the Index finger is on the "main" button c should equal (I don't have enough 2 button 5200 games to know the answer to this but) if there is generally regarded as one of the 2 being the rapid fire button, that one should be on C.  B is auxiliary fire, and C is pause, and option and Start are reset and Start respectively.

 

Speaking of Arcade stick hacking:  Is the only difference between a Jaguar Pro controller and a Jaguar standard the extra 5 buttons, and I read that they are just keypad remaps.   If that’s true, if I want to make a pad-hacked fight stick adapter to hook up to a db15 connector or something like that, would a Standard Jaguar Pad work where the default for L R Z Y and X are 1 3 4 5 and 6 respectively?  Would it be a waste of a Jag Pro Pad to take apart one of those for pad hacking?  Would pad hacking a Standard Jag Pad work for that just as well?  Or is there something else different about a Jag Pro Pad where there’s performance issues by hacking a standard Jag Pad for arcade sticks?

A bohoki 5200 to PC 15-pin adapter + this 15-pin to PS2/N64 adapter will let you plug in a PS2 gamepad directly - analog and digital. It used to be $35 but now it is $66, probably due to its rising popularity for the 5200 (Do not buy the $13 USB to PS2 one that looks almost the same). You can also use the old PC 15-pin UltraRacer or PlayStation Ultraracer for paddle games. You can also use many of the old 15-pin PC gameport analog only flight sticks and flight yokes with the bohoki adapter.

For the analogy 15-pin PC sticks/yokes, try to use ones with less than six buttons and no PC drivers required. There is a thread with info on which PC analog controllers work with the bohoki adapter.

Plugging this adapter into the bohoki adapter will allow you to use 2600 (1-button) and SMS controllers (2-button) on the 5200:

http://www.paradisearcadeshop.com sells something called an Undamned adapter which goes from USB (including PS3) to DB15 for fight stick purposes. I can go from PS2 to PS3 easily.   Now I just need to get fight stick DB-15 to Atari 5200.  Does the Bohoki do this?  Where can I find a Bohoki?  I typed "Bohoki Atari 5200 adapter" on google and bing and found nothing relevant, either information wise, or purchase wise..

They are sold by bohoki, a member of AA. I dont know if he has anymore. He may make more if there is interest.
