some more 15 pin gameport pc to 5200 adapters

Recommended Posts

Hi again,

Would you know whether the Saitek Cyborg 3d will work?

Thanks!

Al

I have to look to see if my Cyborg stick is USB or 15 pin. If it's 15 pin, I'll test it out over the weekend.

i have no information about the cyborg 3d

 

but here are my rules of thumb

 

joysticks probably wont work if they have these features

 

analog with no trim controls

more than 6 buttons

yellow plug

come with usb adapter

come with a driver cd

Would this allow Famicom and Neo Geo controllers to be used with the 5200? Actually, I know Neo Geo ones can't, but can Famicom controllers be used on the 5200 natively?

Does anyone know if this advanced gravis works? I am looking for one that is smaller and arcade-stick-like. Not like most of the huge ones or not ones with the tiny stick like the IBM PCJr. I don't think this one has trims. Is there one similar with trims?

Edit: LOL! Did not notice it had trim on the picture I used to post image. Could not find any info in web search, which I suppose only searches text. Anyhow, ended up getting one of these and a Suncom G-Force Plus flight yoke.

I saw that one. It had five buttons, so I was not sure it would work, as this one only has three. That's okay, since I still prefer buttons on the base. I have never gotten used to ones on the stick, moving your hand and firing throws me off a bit. I also have a couple SMS sticks that have two button function with the ikonsgr74 amiga to PC gameport adapter, so it works like a Masterplay Clone with them, except for Atari paddles -- but I have an Ultra Racer that works well as a paddle, thanks to the bohoki adapter. :)

There is a white and gray PC Raider with two stick buttons and a black PC Raider Pro with 2 buttons on the stick and 4 on the base. Anyone know if both work with the bohoki adapter?

Cyborg​erman 3D does not work and the round thing is not a spinner, it is a joystick that you can also pull up and push down. It is not analog, it only moves like 1mm in any direction.

 

Edit: Sorry. That was the Cyberman 3D I have, not the Cybog 3D.

I know the Gravis Gamepad Pro game pad has been an iffy possibility, given the large number of buttons (it also has four shoulder buttons, like the dual shocks), but I finally took a chance and it does work perfectly. You just have to move the switch on the bottom to the "single player" DOS mode.

Thanks to Bohoki for the adapter! It's working great. I went with the Performance PC Propad (new in box!) for my gamepad.

I'm curious if the autofire works on these.

The autofire does work on the PC Propad. It's a great gamepad. I liked it so much that I bought an extra for my PC.

Cool. Thanks. Good price, too.

I love using this controller to play Defender. It's really nice.
