  1. Which 2600-daptors? If the D9's, you need to use the Auto Sense to set the adapter controller mode. This involves holding a particular controller button as the USB is connected to the adapter. There is an Auto Sense label on the back of the adapter and more info on the web-site. Use a joystick/gamepad app like Windows joy.cpl or Linux jstest-gtk to check that the adapter and controller are working. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  2. Do you have a real console to compare the feel to? Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  3. Just to follow up on some posts regarding jitter and my D9 adapters. Did find there was jitter that was from the D9 itself. Made changes to the firmware and have gotten positive feedback that it was fixed. Have posted the new firmware version here - http://2600-daptor.com/2600-firmware D9.htm Also made the changes to the Ultimate v3, and that firmware is here - http://intellivision.us/interface_upg.php Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  4. Or another option, try joy2key to map the controller keypad to the key presses at ColEm expects. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  5. I don't see that ColEm has any mapping for the controller keypad. You could try contacting the developer, there may be something I am not seeing - https://fms.komkon.org/ColEm/ Or try another emulator like CoolCV - https://atariage.com/forums/topic/240800-coolcv-emulator-for-mac-os-x-linux-windows-and-raspberry/ Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  6. Do you have the actual Stelladaptor? I ask as my 2600 adapters often get referred to as "Stelladaptors". There is no de-jitter in the Stelladaptor. The source code for the firmware is here - http://www.grandideastudio.com/stelladaptor-2600/ Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  7. Are you using the Auto Sense on the Ultimate (which involves holding a particular controller button - for 2600 paddles this is player #1 button)? Have you tried both controller jacks on the Ultimate? Don't have a Retron, but do know it works on Linux which Retron uses. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  8. Just checked on Win 10, Stella 6.6 - both Ultimates work - V2 joysticks, V3 joysticks and paddles. I did see some 1 pixel jitter on the V3 paddles. This may be fixed by applying the jitter update I did to the D9 a few weeks ago. Waiting on paddles from Brainworm to see if there may be other adapter firmware changes. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  9. The Ultimate v3 which supports paddles is named "Ultimate 2600-daptor". I believe Stella was looking for "2600-daptor" any where in the name and thus detected it, but has been many Stella versions since I last checked this. The v2 does not supports paddles and no need for it to be specifically detected by Stella. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  10. Yes. I make the Ultimate adapters sold on http://intellivision.us/. They work like the 2600-daptors. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  11. On the 2600-II, you set the adapter switches to 2600 to use the paddle, and 7800 to use the joystick. Joystick is X/Y axis and paddle will also be X axis. On the 2600-D9, there is no need to flip any switches to change between joystick and paddle - both are active at the same time. The joystick is on X/Y axis, and the paddle is separate in Rotation-Z axis. Note I don't have MiSTer, but have heard the controller mapping is limited, especially the 7800 core, so you might want to check into that first. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  12. Sorry, didn't read your last post before I made mine. Seeing you tried serveral paddles, which would seem rule out the paddles. This is turning into a bit of a puzzle, but still think this is something unique to what you have. If you want, you can send your D9's and one of your paddle sets back here for me to try. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  13. RPi 2 model B v 1.1, retropie-buster-4.7.1-rpi2_3.img, Stella 6.0.1, 2600-D9 w/ the 220118 firmware I just did - http://2600-daptor.com/20220120121305.mp4 Looks nice and stable to me. I don't know, but think the problem you are experiencing is due to something specific to what you have and not some general problem. Personally, I am quite suspicious of your paddles, despite that they seem OK on a real console. Tom http://2600-daptor.com
  14. That looks worst than in the original video. Is your hand on the controller the whole time? I have not seen anything like that here. I did see the jitter in the first video and saw it here when the paddle was in the same position - just left of the A in Activision. The update fixed that for me. Can you try the 2nd paddle? Either use the swap paddle option or do a 2 player game. Only positive values are reported. Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
  15. I tried an Original 2600 and did not see the jitter. After I get feedback on this change, I will check if any of it would apply to the Original/II (these work differently than the D9). Tom http://2600-daptor.com/
