  1. Repairing an Arcadia 2001 Controller I had problems with a fire button of the left Arcadia 2001 controller, not firing anymore. The Arcadia-controllers are very simple and were cheaply made. Even working, they are not great controllers. In the end nothing will help, but making complete new controllers of quality components, with real switches. I might do that sometime, if there should be some games I really like and want to play decently. Not sure yet. But for the beginning a repair should be enough. Simultaneously I'm using the opportunity to preserve that technology by uploading a few pictures. That's my left controller: Inside everything is glued together. By pulling carefully the parts can be separated. The mylar is quite corroded and a bit dirty: Showing the color scheme the plug: The wiring of the mylar itself, in case somebody wants to make a reproduction (or wonders, why pushing the "2"-key, also triggers the gun). Both red fire buttons are wired in parallel. They are just simple buttons, no rocker switches, no up and down. It is a 5x5 millimeters grid in the background. I cleaned the corrosion and without heavy rubbing, not only oxidation went off, but also the printed conducting traces. They really are not bound firmly with the plastic carrier. Look at the red circle. I cleaned away part of button and wire, by using alcohol, an ear pad and too much pressure and rubbing. Cleaning must be done extremely careful: For the first time I tried to repair with conducting silver, since soldering is impossible. I made a mask of transparent tape for painting the new trace. I learnt, painting one time is not enough: To lower electric resistance, the trace must be thicker. I painted three times. Narrow traces are bad, too. They have to be wide. Contact with the original traces must overlap as far as possible to make good contact. Left picture: painting a few times. Right picture: pulling off the tape. I also re-painted the conductive pad of the fire-button later on. I took no photo. Before reassembling I protected the new traces with transparent tape, since the silver color can't get inside the mylar's surface and gets scratched off quite easily. Reassembled the controller, checked it, working again! I can't predict, how long the new pad of the button will last, of course. Hopefully some time...
  2. From the album: Flight Yoke to use on the 5200 (w/ PC to 5200 controller adapter) or on PC (with a 15 pin to USB controller adapter)

    Best for use on Atari 5200 with a PC to 5200 controller adapter for games like Rescue on Fractalus, Star Raiders, and Star Wars the Arcade Game. If you use it on PC to play flight games (ie. Star Wars) , you'll need a 15 pin to USB controller adapter.

  4. So I recently acquired an Odyssey 2 and some games. When I bought it, I checked to make sure it booted up and everything, which it did. Unfortunately, I didn't actually try playing a game. I sat down today to play one, and it seems the player 1 controller has an input problem, because the player is always walking to the left. Its acting the same as if on an N64 where if you have the analog stick held down when you boot the console, that input repeats itself until you reset. I plan to open up the controller and console this weekend and give it a cleaning, but I was wondering if anyone had insight as to what to look for or any videos to point me to. Thanks!
  5. Hi looking to buy 1 or more of these. Redemption 5200 Controller Adapter, thanks
  6. So i'm pondering dropping some cash on a splitter and second controller for my CDi. At this point, I have most of the good games for the system and i'm not sure if any of them are two player. Even the 1 or 2 games I have that are two player seem to be alternating turns which require only one controller. Does anyone happen to play two player CDi and know what games support two player simultaneous, or alternating with two player? Is it even worth bothering? If there are even three decent two player games I'm all for it. There doesn't seem to be a definitive list anywhere or much information that I can find; so i need some resident CDi expert input. Thanks!!
  7. Who was the giant idiot at Atari Corp. who thought that the Jaguar controller was in need of a friggin' keypad?? The controller would have been better off looking like a larger version of the PC Engine controller. Its because of the controller scheme mainly that made the Jaguar fail in the end. :mad: :mad:
  8. I had some Coleco Gemini Controllers included when I bought some games off a kijiji ad and when I bought a system. My problem: I opened them and cleaned them and there was black gunk all over the connectors. I first ran it through stella with the 2600 daptor 2 and it was funny. The dial moved the ship in defender and the stick when I pushed up would shoot but when I had the case off it would work no problem. I tried ms pac man on a 2600 and it worked the button worked and the joystick worked (with the case on). When I tried it on breakout the dial worked but I had to press up on the joystick to shoot the ball (This was also on a 2600). Now what I think it is I used too much rubbing alcohol and took something out of the board but I just want to fix and remedy it. There was possibly some black gunk that was supposed to be there possibly? HELP!
  9. Hey all, With a keen eye I spotted this 'untested' 'Modded???' drive on eBay. Sure enough it had a genuine Happy board, later 8KB SRAM revision, and Controller, but the mechanism needed some TLC. It was definitely stored for a long time in a humid environment because there was a bit of rust, and Aluminum oxidization that cleaned up nicely with an IPA wipe-down. The stepper motor and the top clamp spinner were totally seized. The stepper released with a little force and seems to be behaving now, and the top spinner and rails received a healthy dose of 3-in-1 oil. Now onto the testing! As you can see in the 'before' pictures the lower switch was busted off. This switch selects the write protect mode, which operates a little differently than the standard DIY mods in that the LED is an indicator of Write enable, even when in the lower position - It will actually turn off and on live depending on what the optical sensors see. The middle and top positions function as usual (always read only / always allow write) so I spent this evening replacing the broken switch with a spare On-Off-On switch. I didn't have one with the side-mount pins, so I fabricated it by soldering the bendy leads from the old switch onto mine, and then onto the PCB. It was a little tricky, because too much heat and the graft would let go. It's also not the same 'flat paddle' style switch, but it's not too practical to search & wait for a custom order for that... But I might still replace it I come across one in the future... so it matches that little paper printout The board has 4 wires that connect to a pin-header on the Happy board itself, and to the write-protect sensor & emitter pin header at the back of the drive. The removed sensor/emitter header then plugs directly into the controller board so it can monitor, and intercept or pass-through the real write-protect status. Anyhow, I believe there's been some interest in the 'Happy Controller' companion board for Genuine Happy 1050 upgrades, and maybe some detailed pictures may help someone someday in reproducing these. I've used Happy since forever, but its my first time with my hands on this little add-on. The upper track-buffer toggle switch is interesting, as it will actually still operate in Ultraspeed SIO, but with long gaps between each sector on a regular skew disk similar to USDoubler on a standard skew disk. I haven't yet tried a disk formatted with Ultraspeed skew. If you'd like to see any other views, let me know!
  10. (not mine) Vectrex "MiniVex II" controller, with Rapid Fire, twin analog joysticks Brand-new, twin joystick controller for Vectrex! It's got a tough, all-metal case. Size is about 3/4 of the factory unit, see photo 4. The two joysticks are analog, like the factory controller. The left and right cables correspond to the left and right joysticks, and a toggle switch on the back selects the left or right cable for button inputs, so you can use the buttons with EITHER joystick, when only one cable is plugged in, or you can plug in both cables and use BOTH joysticks at once! (The toggle switch prevents overlapping button inputs.) Thus this controller is compatible with Robot Arena, and (hopefully) the upcoming Stramash Zone. Now, if those homebrew designers would only grace us with Crazy Vector Climber, and Vectrex Widow, and Cloak & Vector... The buttons on this controller are smaller and stiffer than the factory controller, but there's a remedy for that...button #4, most often used for firing, has a rapid fire feature. Just hold it down and bangbangbang! The other toggle switch on the back selects rapid or normal fire, and with the rotary pot you can adjust the firing speed to YOUR liking. This controller is not cosmetically perfect...I make them by hand, so they're not going to be perfect. Please see my other auction for a simpler, single joystick version of this controller. I'll guarantee this controller for 30 days from the day you receive it. If it fails within that time, I'll repair it at no charge. Paypal only, will ship anywhere EBay's Global Shipping goes, and THANKS FOR LOOKING! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vectrex-MiniVex-II-controller-with-Rapid-Fire-twin-analog-joysticks/222794918982?
  11. Hi, I have come into possession of an ASCII Stick Alpha for the Sega Master System. I have done some Google/Atari Age searching and have come to a limited understanding that trying to use it on a 7800/2600/800XL might be a bad idea, but I don't understand why and under what circumstances (if any) that it might work. But then I have a buddy who swears that he has played some of his Atari games using a different SMS controller for decades and it hasn't caused him any problems. What happens when one tries to play his or her Atari with a Master System controller? Thanks for your time, --SilvaHaloOne

  13. I am lacking a second controller for my Super Nintendo due to sales of spare systems I had. I thought I had one more but I guess I didn't. Send me a PM and tell me about or show me pictures of any wear. As long as it is fully functional and you don't have to jam any of the keys in in order to get the buttons to work I'm ok with it. I don't care if it's yellowed or has the "Super Nintendo" logo wearing off. I'm going to see how many offers I get and take the cheapest one.
  14. I just finished this, it took quite a while but I got it working. I am finally free of the CX52 joystick! I was so sick of the mushy buttons on the CX52; when I push the system buttons, it feels good to have them push back! I'll post a schematic later if anyone is interested, though I suspect anyone capable of building one of these already knows how.
  15. Hi all! (I reposted this from the Homebrew thread) Im new here but have been a Jag fan forever. I wanted to replace my Jaguar buttons from red to Orange. I prefer the classic Atari color scheme so...there ya have it. WHile i was making the orange I decided to play around and see what other color combinations i could come up with. The buttons and D-pads are made from 2 piece silicone molds and filled with liquid plastic resin. My silicon moulds made from original Jag Controller parts "Classic Orange" (right) "Blackout" (left) "The GT" "Ivory" A Fresh Batch of Uncleaned Ivory, Blackout, and a Grey color Im calling "Winter in Michigan" Random Parts ready for cleaning Thoughts?

  16. From the album: My Collection

    I did not do this, This was done back in the 80's by somebody who REALLY liked this controller and wanted to use it on their Atari computer (Probably) The controller does function but the controls are reversed forcing the player to hold it backwards,also it has a dead zone the size of Kansas, all or nothing whatsoever. Yes That is Duct Tape

  20. --- --- --- --- --- --- While the boxes of the first batch of Vectrex controller kits are leaving my house one after another, I'm mentally preparing for maybe a 2nd batch. But before I will go on ordering components and parts for that, which will cost a few hundred Euros (€), I want to check the demand for a Vectrex controller kit v2. Is there anybody out there, who would like to have one? Please check, if you don't know the project: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/240542-new-vectrex-joystick-kit-for-sale/ I have a few ideas for the 2nd version and the pcb will be a different one, but the functionality and features, will probably be the same. So, if you think, you might be interested in acquiring one, please tell me. You can use this thread or PM. Thanks, Rolo
  21. Hi all, This is my first post here, but been lurking and taking in all the useful advice re atari! I'm looking for one of the black plastic controller ports thats soldered on to the pcb of an atari flashback 3-7. Can anyone help me please? I currently have one good and one melted one, that I accidently destroyed whilst trying to remove for a raspberry pi project. Any help greatly appreciated!
  22. Forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong place, I didn't know where else to post this. I'm looking for a pair of keypad overlays for MouseTrap, if anybody has an extra pair laying around. PM me with your price and shipping cost. Original overlays HIGHLY preferred. Nothing against repros, it's just not what I'm looking for in this one instance. Thanks much, everyone!
  23. Coming Soon for Vectrex... MiniVex Pedal I Vectrex Controller Button Controller. Following Larry's (ClassicGamesAndCarsFan) current MiniVex controller is the new MiniVex Vectrex Pedal Controller. The controller is designed so that it may be used either in tandem with another Vectrex controller, or independently on a different controller port. Plug the Pedal Controller into your Vectrex. Plug your controller into the extension box controller. Select button 1,2,3 or 4 with the rotary switch. Then stomp it! The selected button still operates from the controller as well as the pedal. The Pedal Controller can be used in on its own too. Plug the pedal controller in the desired Vectrex controller port. Select button 1,2,3 or 4 with the rotary switch. Then stomp it! Keep an eye on availability through Larry's regular eBay sales. Here is his his eBay sales via his "ClassicGamesAndCarsFan" seller account. https://www.ebay.com/sch/ClassicGamesAndCarsFan/m.html?_sop=10 I'll post more pictures later when mine arrives. #Vectrex #MiniVex #Pedal #Foot #Switch #Controller #MiniVexPedalI
  24. I have a bunch of games, an original Minecraft Overlay, and an unused Vectrex controller. Auctions end on Sunday with no reserve. I will combine shipping Auctions can be found here: https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=cowabungaturtles&_sop=12&_dmd=1&_osacat=0&_ipg=200&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR9.TRC1.A0.H0.Xvectrex.TRS2&_nkw=vectrex&_sacat=0
  25. Who have found a replacement knob for the Vectrex Controller? One that fits the shaft as a screw on replacement. One that will still allow the controller to be stored. One that matches well. Chrome. Black. Light Gray. In metal or plastic. Preferably, one that does not destroy or degrade another old controller. But hey, Vectrex before Atari! or Tandy. One that is reasonably priced. Reasonably being somewhat mutable based on what it is. newly machined knob with chrome / polishing will be more expensive than a 3D printed knob.
