I do not believe TI or Coleco since they are connected to the cartridges but I have no idea if it was supported in other systems. Thanks!

There were several flavors of this device.

 

TI - Cart / Coleco - Cart / Atari - long 9-pin / C64 - long 9-pin / Apple II - 9-pin (uses the mouse card or with mini cable for motherboard connection)

 

Only seen the TI and Apple versions.  Had the Apple one in our Computer Lab back in high school around 84/85.

 

Is there a model number printed any where on it??  Embossed on the back maybe.

     Not a disk image but a ROM is at

and there is the disk image of the very similar Graphic Commander there at that link, too.

Thank you for all the info!

 

The only number on the pad itself is the serial number.  I do notice on the 9pin connector it says PPI 2051.  Does that help?

A quick search on Google:

 

G2100 - Commodore 64 (Long Plug)
G2200 - ??
G2300 - Atari 800/XL/XE (Long Plug)
G2400 - TI-99/4A (Cart)
G2500 - Colecovision (Cart)
 

The size of the connector resembles what was on the Apple version (minus the adapter cable).  Also I can't seem to find any results with Google for this.  You might have a very rare beast there.

 

Going by the results on the model numbers it looks like the Apple model would probably be G2200.  And I'm not sure where you would find the disk for this version.

 

Has anyone seen the Super Sketch on the C64 or Atari with a short black plug??
