  1. So I've been thru the menus and can't find where to set the sensitivity. And I've seen nothing in the docs nor with searching. Could you please give a menu path. Many thanks up front.
  2. Can anyone tell me the best thread to watch (get notices from) for new releases of stella? Thanks up front, w-
  3. Hi Guys, I have to say thanks again for all the help in the past. But what list to I have to get on to see when new releases are put out for either windows or the retron77? Thanks again, w-
  4. Remember that when you do mappings. You are NOT doing them on the paddle or sticks but on the port they are plugged into. So if you make a change; it's to the system you're working on not the paddle or stick. You might have issues now with your Flashback X now.
  5. I'm using 6.1.1 on RetroN77 and it flies. They did a great job. And I couldn't tell you how to map the paddles. Sorry!
  6. If it works after you move the cable, it is the paddles, not the game. Sounds like someone on ebay sold you broken paddles. I would make sure all of the wires inside the paddle are connected and in good condition. Hope this doc i wrote helps. What system are you running stella on?

  7. Hi Thomas, Sorry it took sp long to get back. Trying to do vacation stuff with family. My paddles also worked. Hopefully gave a better description below. The only time they fail is on 6.2.1 on the DB9 port on RetroN77 box. They worked on win10 with 6.2.1. I just redid all tests and got same results. I made one change in chart and that was to Bold and make red the 2 different systems. I added to Yes*1 for a more complete explanation On win10 my paddles work, just have to use mouse to manever menus. F2 to reset game and esc to exit game. No big deal. There are no sqlit files on either SD card->(only created if I try to change menu items, at first I played with them and then redid card and erased all; never created again)) or win10 machine-> (no place for sqlit files).

  8. I can't thank everyone enough for all the help you gave me setting up both my RetroN77 and Win10 Stella deployments. I put a small paper together to hopefully help other beginners. I hope that all of this helps.

  10. Hi Thomas, When I asked about the flashing. When I turn off my computer, the 2600-dapter keeps flashing. That is ok and I don't have to unplug it? When playing 2 or more players on a computer, do I use the Hyperkin splitter (atari paddles) or do I need another 2600-dapter? When playing on my retron77, do I just use just the splitter for my atari paddles in the front DB9 connector for 2 or more or both front DB9 connectors? As the USB doesn't work. Thanks for all your help. w-
  11. So been working with Tom from2600-dapter. Very nice guy. Got Atari paddles working on computer on 6.2.1 Got Atari paddles working on DB9 on retron 6.1.1 Testing/results below. If anyone can answer these questions appreciated: *Do I have to reflash after every time I unplug from computer? *Does it matter still flashing even when computer turned off? *So I guess I need 2 dapters for 2 players? And all 4 paddles plugged in? And a USB hub for computer? As I want to run this on a retron77, will I need just splitter? Steps: Everything on win10 or retron77 and stella 6.2.1 unless otherwise noted. Jumped and stopped flashing. Reflashed bios with 190927. Unplugged USB Plugged in Atari paddles Didn’t work Started over again Jumped and stopped flashing. Reflashed bios with 190901. Unplugged USB Plugged in Atari paddles They work. On win10 machine: So I ran your test. Paddles were working fine Unplugged Atari and plugged in 1 ranger. Didn’t work Rebooted machine Atari paddles working Unplugged Atari Plugged in Hyperkin splitter with 2 rangers Paddle one worked but in a hyper mode What I mean is very little movement on paddle control made very FAST movement and FAR (across screen). Unusable but kind of worked. Hope this helped. On retron77: Paddles did not work on 6.2.1. Had to go to 6.1.1 Paddles were working fine on front of retron not in USB on either version Atari paddles working in DB9 only on 6.1.1 Unplugged Atari from DB9 on retron77 and plugged into retron77 usb Didn’t work. Ran reflash as described above. Still didn’t work Now doesn’t work on Computer again. Reflashed again and now working on computer.
