  1. Hello,

    Was looking at the Ultimate PC Interface V3 on your site. Mainly want to use it for Intellivision and Atari 2600 and Atari 800 emulators on Raz Pi 3b+ Retropie Emulation Station setup with original controllers. I had a few questions:

    -Will it work well on that setup?

    -Will the controllers always be easily recognized by that system as I unplug and swap them or will I have to reconfigure every time?

    -What effect will your adapter have on my current 8 bit do sn30 pro + controller which is the only one I use right now? Will that still be easily recognizable without reconfiguring when I swap it with your adapter?

    I really appreciate your feedback on this. Thank you!

      The hackfile you just download and install in the appropriate directory (I forget off hand where that is on RetroPie - should be in the RetroPie's help wiki) -

      http://intellivision.us/intvgames/interface/hackfile.cfg

       

      There is info on the hackfile here, scroll down to the "How to configure Intellivision's jzIntv" section -

      http://intellivision.us/interface.php

       

      Look at the order of the wire colors -

      Original green connector with correct ordering of wires (top to bottom - brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, black, grey, clear/sliver).  If your wire order backwards, then you need to reverse the connector with may require removing the dongle shield.

      Thank you! The dongle shields needed to he removed in this case. They now seem right side up.

      Just to be clear, I just need to paste that exact hackfile into a new text document and then drop it in my jzintv rom folder and keypads should work properly? And I should be able to use the double key combos mentioned to pause, exit from the emulator?

      It's a bit confusing to a novice and I just want to be sure not to mess up my whole system configuration. Your input and support has been greatly appreciated.
