  1. Yes, as already posted there is a firmware for the 2600 II to turn it into an AtariVox adapter. I have ported the code over to the D9, but there is a problem with the interface for the AtariVox's I2C EEPROM that I have yet to look into. Probably be winter before I get to that.

  2. I did tests on lag several years ago (sorry all the pics links are now broke) - http://atariage.com/forums/topic/207281-stella-input-response-vs-real-measured/ There will be some lag introduced by USB, but a bigger lag can come from the video. I suspect any "modern" digital-based display is going to be buffering the frames before displaying. In an old analog CRT, the input signal goes to ray gun and displayed in real time.

  3. Don't know of a technical reason other might help hold the controller into the console jack. No nubs on my Sears controller, but my 5200 controllers have them. I would file them down if they are causing a problem inserting into the adapter. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  4. A non-zero Dead Zone could potentially create a dead-spot in the middle of the knob rotation. However, it has been quite a long time since I looked at this. Perhaps Mame is now only applying Dead Zone to X & Y axis (the knob is in the Z axis). The new 2600 D9 also supports the Astrocade controller. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  5. The VID is "Oops" on my part. Would normally be 04D8 (which is belongs to Microchip who I get the PID's from). Windows caches the device name in the registry, so I make up a different VID/PID when I want to play with the device name. Looks like I shipped some D9's out with a dummy VID still in the firmware. You can reflash to be safe. There are some Stella changes that would be nice, but some of these projects like RetroPie and RetroN 77 are on older Stella versions, Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  6. For those that what to play Stella with non-2600 controllers with the 2600 D9, I posted an alternate "2600=daptor" firmware - http://2600-daptor.com/2600-firmware%20D9.htm For non-2600 controllers. it comes up as with the slightly different device name, which means Stella does not recognize it and you are then free to input map it. 2600 controllers still come up as "2600-daptor" and automatically mapped by Stella. Also have an edited 80-stelladaptor-joystick.rules for Stephen's evdev-joystick.tar.xz. Added all the adapters I have that do analog controllers. Tom
  7. I ship to Europe. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  8. There is no mouse acceleration. You might try it first and see if you like it as a desktop mouse, before spending time on modding. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  9. This sounds like the default centering deadzone that Linux evdev applies to analog joysticks. Is your desktop also Linux? Stephen made the "evdev-joystick" utility to allow changing this setting - https://stella-emu.github.io/downloads.html Edit: If the Linux kernal is being rebuilt for Retron 77, perhaps the default value for this deadzone can just be changed in the Linux code to (what I presume is needed) zero. I wish that was the Linux default - it has been nothing but highly annoying as people keep getting tripped up by it. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  10. No need to mod the controller to use with my adatpers. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  11. Now have support for the AtariVox EEPROM (and presumably SaveKey) - http://2600-daptor.com/AtariVox-daptor.htm The functions provided by the EEPROM utility are basic file read, write, erase. Takes 35-45 seconds to do the entire EEPROM. Note on write, you can just have only the data in the file that you want written, and that is only what is written (don't have to do the entire EEPROM). Let me know what other functions would be useful. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  12. If you would like to send in your Vision-daptor, I would repair for the cost of the return shipping. I would be curious to see what happened to it though my guess is likely zapped by static electricity. I have and tested the D9 with almost all of the listed controllers. I think I am only short the Vectrex and Channel F. The email is [email protected] Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  13. Just tried here, with two 2600-daptors, and it is accepting binding from both. This is with an older Altirra version 2.3, on XP. What version and win are you running? EDIT: Also tried latest Altirra 3.10 on Win 10, and also worked - accepting binding from both 2600-daptors.
  14. Sounds like you have run into an emulator bug. I take you have confirmed the 2nd adapter is working in another emulator or better with a joystick/gamepad test program like windows joy.cpl. I'll try it here later. Note the adapter is seen as just another USB joystick/gamepad and is nothing special as far as the computer/operating system is concerned. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  15. Have you tried creating the mapping but set Port 2? http://2600-daptor.com/Altirra%20mapping.JPG Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
