Paddle controllers

Recommended Posts

I see lots of atari controllers on amazon and some cool ones too. Some classic and some with usb plug. What I don't see are the paddle controllers. Does anyone make new paddle controllers for the 2600?

I actually started a thread about paddles I bought from Best Electronics. The upgraded paddles work great! http://atariage.com/forums/topic/233639-best-electronics-paddles/

The at games description says two controllers with one connector. I guess that means they are connected? Can you still play two player? Will they work with a USB adapter?

Yes, per usual. Yes. Sure.

the USB adapter for the 9 pin Atari type controller doesn't work on paddles http://www.amazon.com/Retro-Link-Atari-PC-USB-Cable/dp/B007ZS35CU/ref=sr_1_sc_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1422422381&sr=8-1-spell&keywords=retro+link+atari+able

It works just fine with my old Atari joysticks but there is no support for the paddle or driving controllers. So, if all you're after is a way to play the old console games that used a joystick, this will work fine for you. No Warlords, Pong, Circus, Indy 500, Night Driver or Breakout support though.

 

standard atari paddles WILL work on the flashbacks hidden games & yes they are a pair 180px-Atari_paddles.jpg

 

 

there is the 2600-dapter to plug standard paddles in for USB , but I don't have one
