Colecovision Y-Adapter Controller Cables Available

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tested these Y-cables with "keypadless" two-button controllers, like the Atari 7800 controller, the Questar or the Fire Command II? I could be interested in buying a few, but only if I can be sure they're going to work with my third-party controllers.

I think I will buy two more cables for my future game : robee blaster, count me in ;) !

Why not make it a pack-in cable with every copy, while you're at it? :P

They are essentially a straight through design (both male ends of the cable - where the controllers plug in - merge into the one female plug end). So it's the same as plugging a controller directly in, or plugging a controller into an extension cable.

 

As to whether or not they work with other controllers with 2 buttons... I'm not familair with the Questar or the Fire Command II, but if the controller supports two buttons on it's own (like a modded Genesis controller, for example), then there's no reason it wouldn't work with one of these Y-adapters. I have tested numerous Atari-compatible joysticks with it, including a 7800 Proline controller, and they all worked. The Proline allows you to use both buttons too; just as if it were plugged in by itself.

Quick update...

 

I have the supply cables / parts in. I'm currently on vacation, but will be making more cables and following up with people on the waiting list next week.

 

Thanks!

I just PM'ed everyone that posted in the thread about wanting more cables. I'm currently making them, so if you still want some and haven't heard from me yet, send me a PM!

 

Thanks.

Hey nurmix!

 

I'd like to order a Y cable. Just heard about these from a past episode of the Intellivisionaries. Black tubing if available, otherwise whatever you got.

 

I assume you'll PM the details? Otherwise let me know what you need from me (besides payment lol).

 

Thanks!

Hey @nurmix, are you still making these ColecoVision cables, by chance? I shot you a PM a few weeks back but haven't heard from you yet. I'd love one Y-cable if at all possible! Thanks.

Hey, sixersfan105.

 

Due to recently moving house, and a larger than usually workload, cables have been put on hold for the time being.  I’m not ruling out making more in the future, but there’s currently a backlog of orders for Y-adapters, and the Intellivision Flashback adapters I also make.  I need to order more supply cables and get my soldering workstation unpacked and setup in the new garage (which is still a mess and only partially organized since the move).  I’ll follow up with your PM when I have a better idea of timeframe.

Ok no problem at all. Thanks for the heads up and for queuing my PM unless and until you make more in the future! Cheers.
