Is there a TI to C64 joystick adapter?

I would love to be able to take my pain-sticks over to a die hard C64 fan and plug them in.

Lets see you high score MoonPatrol with these ;)

Use the existing Atari-TI adapters with a couple gender-benders to reverse the plugs?

wouldn't work. the TI ones have diodes that would block the signals in reverse..

Are the diodes in the stick or in the plug? Could one simply hack off the end of one of the pain sticks and wire it up standard?

Not sure if they are in the pain sticks, they are definitely in the adapter

Actually for $25 + shipping I will build you a reverse TI adapter ..  I'll just replace the diodes with wire..  and swap the gender of the connectors you might need some short cables to make it fit the c64 tho

 

is torturing your friend worth that?  :)

Ah.
I thought the currently-available ones were like the vintage one I have, which is just wires.

Besides, if i was going to give someone a copy zero zap, it would be on cassette along with the cassload utility to load it.

I had the pain sticks but rarely used them. Some little tiny things called Power Sticks worked great though, at least for this redhead. :P
