Sega to Intellivision controller adapter

Recommended Posts

Updated 5/7/2020

Sega Master System (SMS), Sega Genesis, and Atari 2600 to Intellivision controller adapter with US power adapter.

Allows the above controllers to be used on Intellivision 2 or Sears Super Video Arcade. Also works with Intellivision 1 if you add db9 ports to it.

 

Link on how to add db9 ports to Intellivision 1 (2609).

I'm no longer making these adapters. 

Price is $110 + $15 shipping in US.  $25 shipping to Canada.

 

If you don't like Sega/Intv controller adapter its ok to return for refund less shipping for 30 days.  Return in same condition sent and with all materials.  Buyer would pay return shipping with tracking.

 

Tested with the following controllers.

Sega SMS controller - Model 3020 - 2 buttons, and B+C for lower right button

Sega Model 1650 (3 button) - 2 buttons, and B+C for lower right button.

Sega MK-1470 (6 button with rapid) - 2 buttons, and B+C for lower right button.

Sega MK-1653 - (6 button no rapid) - 2 buttons, and B+C for lower right button.

8BbitDo M30 2.4g wireless Sega Genesis controller 2 buttons, and B+C for lower right button.

Atari 2600 CX40 controller - single button

 

Features:

Front DB9 port for Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, or Atari 2600 controller

Rear db9 cable that plugs into Intellivision 2 or Sears. Also connects to Intellivision 1 if you add db9 ports to it.

9v DC power jack in rear.

Adapter provides up to 200ma of power.

Front mount red power led

Front mount push on, push off power button (Gray color).

Custom designed sticker on bottom, made by person on AA who makes all the stickers I use

 

Sega Master System (SMS) Button Mapping:

SMS button 1 = Intellivision Top Left/Right Action button

SMS button 2 = Intellivision Bottom Left Action button

SMS 1 and 2 at the same time = Intellivision Bottom Right Action button

 

Sega Genesis Button Mapping:

Sega Genesis B button = Intellivision Top Left/Right Action button

Sega Genesis C button = Intellivision Bottom Left Action button

Sega Genesis B+C at the same time = Intellivision Bottom Right Action button

 

Atari 2600 Button Mapping:

Atari 2600 action button = Intellivision Top Left/Right Action button

 

If the controller supports Rapid Fire, then you now have a rapid fire controller for Intellivision.  RF being effective is based on the game being played.

Very cool. I'd like to say I'm interested in one but I still use your Intv arcade controller design religiously, so I'm not sure if I'll truly need this or not. Of course if I have the extra money to get one, I would. :)

Could I just put a power jack on the front of the console to power it instead of using an adapter? I remember you did something similar on an Inty II when you first made your arcade controller, although that jack might have been 5vdc and this requires 9v dc. Just thinking out loud.. I can't remember what all voltages are available off hand to tap off of from inside the console.

 

Also on case color, when you say yellow, do you mean a cream color like the SVA is?

Almond color is very much like Sears model.

 

Its best to use the power adapter I recommend.

If this was around when I had an Intellivision I'd still own it today. Where was this 6 years ago!?

Recovering from surgery. Will most likely be fall now. Looks like I'll end up making 5 as there is very low interest.

Sorry to hear about the surgery, but glad you are recovering! Thanks for the update! Looking forward to one whenever you get done with them!

I've had worse luck this year. Had second major surgery a couple of weeks ago. I'm still looking to do this project, however it needs to be delayed to Early 2018.

 

Sorry for the delay.

Thanks for the update, grips! Take care of yourself and get better - that's obviously the most important thing.
