I have an oddball question. I have a NT Mini. It was originally designed to be a high end NES clone. That means it has 4 NES controller ports on the front. The system has been jail broken and has cores for the A2600 and A7800. Wondering if it is possible to convert A2600 paddles to a NES connector. Or even an adapter. Would it be difficult? I know there would be a niche market for this.
NES Paddles (Vaus / Arkanoid controllers) are fairly rare and obscure, but I do own one.
Atari paddles are dirt common, and you can easily remove the jitters if you take the time to disassemble the controller and spray compressed air and contact cleaner into the pots, followed by vigorous swiping. Once you clean the dust and grime out, they are good as new again.
Brian Parker of RetroUSB had a schematic for a Atari to NES Vaus adapter for Atari paddles, but never released it because "no demand."
