Want to buy: Two 2600 driving controllers

Recommended Posts

I'm in BC, Canada and looking for 2 driving controllers for the 2600. Please let me know if you have any available for sale :)

They might look the same on the outside but they're really nothing alike, functionally speaking. The paddle controller is a variable resistor while the driving controller is a set of contacts that make and break in a specific way as you rotate the knob (research Gray Code encoder for more information on the concept).


Original trackballs that are intended for use with the 2600 emulate a joystick.
