Hey, guys. I have a thread on the Intellivision forum for the Flashback adapter cables I make (that allow using Intellivision Flashback controllers on the original consoles), but I'm also making Colecovision Y-adapter cables, and have 6 foot db9 extension cables available: Colecovision Y-Adapter cables - allows connection of standard Colecovision system controller with an additional compatible joystick (Atari 2600, etc) without the need to unplug / swap controllers one at a time. It should also work fine on other consoles that use db9 connectors - but I only tested on a Colecovision: These are $10 each. If desired, you can specify the color of the heat shrink tubing (black, blue, red, green, yellow, white). If not specified, you will receive whatever color I have in stock at the time. Approximate length is 18 inches. Standard db9 controller extension cables - 6 foot length (for Colecovision, Intellivision II / Sears consoles, Atari 2600 / 7800, Sega Genesis, Atari and Commodore computers; basically anything that uses a standard db9 type connector): These are $6.50 each or two for $12 ----------------------------------------------- Please send me a PM here on Atari Age if you are interested in any of these cables. Include your shipping / address information, and preferably an email address, and I will get back to you with a total. Payment is via PayPal. Credit cards (processed through my business - White Flag Computing) are also an option if you don't use PayPal. You can also email [email protected] instead of sending a PM if you prefer. Shipping is not included in the above prices. USA orders will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail (usually flat rate small box, which is $5.95). International orders will be shipped via USPS International First Class (padded mailer - price varies depending on weight and destination). Thanks!
So I bought some 2600 controller extension cables from Amazon or Ebay or somewhere a while back and they worked for a while but are generally terrible. They form a loose connection so unless you plug them in just right (or move during gameplay) then all of a sudden you can go right but not left playing River Raid. Also if you attach them wrong you will push individual pins in and have to pull them out with a set of tweezers. I'm playing a lot more 2600 these days and i'm looking for a permanent solution. Anyone know someone who sells high quality extension cables that last?
